“Following its recapitalization, Eurobank is now embarking on a new phase, coinciding with a series of
encouraging developments in the Greek economy. These relate to the significant progress registered on the
fiscal-adjustment front and in the area of structural reforms, leading to a visible improvement in market
sentiment towards Greece.
In the first quarter of 2013, Eurobank recorded positive trends in a number of key indicators, the most
important of which were the decline in provisions for bad debts, the continuous rise in retail deposits and the
return to profitability in its international operations.
With an enhanced capital base, and in its capacity as systemic banking pillar, Eurobank can henceforth play
a leading role in the strategic restructuring of Greek banking currently under way. At the same time, it aims to
achieve a swift return to the markets, raising capital from the private sector. Furthermore, capitalizing on its
high-quality human resources and strong ties with its clients, the Bank maintains its focus on financing the
economy via innovative initiatives aimed to bolstering the healthy, outward-looking and internationallycompetitive companies, which represent the key to the country’s exit from the crisis.”
