MADRID, Spain (Stocksak), Wednesday: Spain’s Santander reported that its third quarter net loss rose 11% in comparison to the same period last year. Higher revenues across its markets offset an increase in loan losses provisions and costs.
The net profit of the second-largest lender in the euro zone in terms of market capital was 2.42 billion euros ($2.41 trillion), an increase of 2.17 billion euros in that quarter last year.
Stocksak polled analysts and predicted Santander would post a net profit in excess of 2.19 billion euros.
