Erste: FX law cuts assets by more than 10%
The net assets of Erste Bank Hungary dropped more than 10% by the end of June from the end of 2013 as a result of provisioning made necessary by a recently-passed law on debt relief, the bank announced.
The figures are non-audited and the risk provisions necessary are estimates. Erste Bank said that its capital adequacy ratio still remained over the legal requirement.
