* sale in line with objectives set out by lender’s 2017-18 business plan

* made through transfer to a special purpose vehicle

* senior tranche worth 464 million euros

* deconsolidation of portfolio determines improvement of the gross NPL ratio to an estimated 21.2 percent from 27.2 percent at March 31, 2017

* General Manager Mauro Salvetti says transaction is “key step in the de-risking of the bank’s balance sheet... improved asset quality level of the group by bringing the NPL ratio back to a level that is similar to Creval’s direct peers”.
