Credit Agricole Profits Plunge On Bes Bank Collapse - Yahoo News

Done Credit Agricole profits plunge on BES bank collapse By Severine Rouby 18 minutes ago 0 shares View gallery . Paris (AFP) - French bank Credit Agricole SA on Tuesday said the collapse of Portuguese lender BES had slashed its second-quarter profits, and warned that it faces a US probe for possible sanctions-busting. But the bank, one of the biggest in Europe by capitalisation, reported a strong underlying performance and its shares surged 5.74 percent to 10.88 euros. Credit Agricole SA (CASA) said net profit for the three months through June slumped to 17 million euros ($23 million) from 696 million euros a year ago after it wrote off its stake in Banco Espirito Santo. The group said it had been deceived by the family behind the Espirito Santo companies, and would back any legal action by a new management team. This was a second such blow for Credit Agricole: two years ago during the Greek debt crisis it lost a total home page of 8.7 billion euros on its investment in Greek bank Emporiki. Portugal narrowly averted a national disaster and a fresh eurozone crisis on Monday by launching a new bank as part of a rescue for BES totalling nearly 5.0 billion euros. CASA now deemed its 14.6-percent share in BES to be worthless, and its total costs from the collapse to be 708 million euros. <br>More:

Japan's Honda Finds Magic _ But Blue Samurai Fail

The roar Japan's star striker Keisuke Honda let out after putting his team ahead against Ivory Coast in the 16th minute with a beautifully poised left-footed strike appeared to be a release from the derision he suffered this year in his new role as AC Milan's No. 10. Honda came to the (visit site) World Cup with something to prove and the goal he scored showed he still has the lethal touches that made him such a presence with his old club CSKA Moscow. For Japan, it was a shame that the rest of the team couldn't find the inspiration that inhabited their talismanic player. Ivory Coast kept muscling forward, and something had to give for a Japanese side that showed uncharacteristic sloppiness in its passing. Two strikes early in the second half gave Ivory Coast a 2-1 lead that they kept till the final whistle. Japan's other star Manchester United's Shinji Kagawa was particularly ineffective on Saturday. Anemic in attack, he sprayed passes early in the first half and gave away chances that Japan was lucky not to be punished for.
