    Emporiki Bank on Wednesday said an extraordinary general shareholders' meeting, scheduled for Feb. 26, will discuss a board plan for a share capital increase scheme worth 850 million euros.

    A board meeting on Wednesday also elected Bernard Mary as a member of the board.

    Emporiki Bank aims to raise its capital adequacy rate to above 10 pct by June 30.

    The bank said provisions for its lending portfolio will total 500 million euros for 2008, of which 300 million euros will cover the fourth quarter of the year, while write downs in the fourth quarter totaled 100 million euros.

    Jean-Frederic de Leusse, the bank's chairman and deputy CEO in Credit Agricole, said Emporiki Bank enjoyed the full support of Credit Agricole.

    "Our aim is to ensure Emporiki Bank's ability to respond to future challenges and to benefit from any opportunities arose when a financial environment stabilises. With this share capital increase plan, the bank will acquire a strong capital base," he said.
