  • UBI doesn't rule out Monte Paschi tie-up but won't be pushed into bad deal: CEO

    Saturday, 9:32 AM

    UBI Bank CEO Victor Massiah gestures during an interview with Reuters in downtown MilanUBI , Italy's fifth-biggest bank, does not rule out a tie-up with troubled Monte dei Paschi di Siena but will not be pushed into an unwanted deal, its chief executive said on Saturday. UBI is one of 10 cooperative banks that the government is forcing to convert into joint-stock companies within 18 months. The reform, which scraps voting rules that had been seen as an obstacle to bank mergers and acquisitions (M&A), is expected to spur a wave of deals, and UBI is expected to play a prominent role. The bank has been tipped as the most likely domestic bidder for Monte dei Paschi, which is not a cooperative bank but has been told by the European Central Bank to find a buyer quickly because of its stretched finances.
