ΑΤΗΕΝS — Alpha Bank on Friday said it was examining plans for a share capital increase worth 800 million euros to fund its development plan.

"The suggested capital raise seeks to take advantage of the current favorable conditions in capital markets and Alpha Bank's strong financial position, at the same time defending the investment value of existing shareholders. Alpha Bank considers the outlook of the Greek economy as extremely positive and wants to contribute in support of the Greek government's efforts to boost the growth of the national economy and to attract foreign investments in the country," the announcement said.
