BERLIN (Reuters) - Germany’s NordLB will step out of ships financing business and will reduce activity in its airplanes financing business, a source familiar with the matter told Reuters on Tuesday.
The source added that the German regional state of Saxony-Anhalt would contribute 198 million euros ($221.76 million) to rescue the ailing bank as part of a plan agreed by its owners - German savings banks and some regional states - in February.
Saxony-Anhalt did not expect dividends from the bank before 2024, the source added.
NordLB declined to comment.
