BANCA MONTE DEI PASCHI DI SIENA

SALINI IMPREGILO

BANCA POPOLARE DELL‘ETRURIA E DEL LAZIO

The bank said on Tuesday it will proceed with the early repayment of state-guaranteed liabilities worth an overall 335 million euros. * The chairman of unlisted Popolare di Vicenza Gianni Zonin said in an interview in Il Sole 24 Ore he did not rule out looking again at a tieup with Banca Etruria but added the offer his bank made last May was to be considered superceded.
