The 2007 accounts closing process is proceeding in a satisfactory manner. Neither any loss nor any other matter has been revealed, whose importance would justify a market warning.
Given the exceptional level of concerns which are presently disrupting the markets, BNP Paribas has decided to present the group’s estimated results for 2007 to its Board of Directors and to the market next week.
The detailed presentation of yearly accounts will take place as scheduled on the 20th February.
