Societe Generale Behind Siemens’ Withdrawal


The German corporation Siemens withdrew 500 million euros from Societe Generale according to sources. This happened before the stress tests.

This money was withdrawn at the beginning of July. The latest reports from Societe Generale are from the end of Q2, and point to a leverage of 28:1 according to the bank’s internal calculations. How does this withdrawal by Siemens affect the balance sheet of the SocGen?

Societe Generale’s share price is falling by 2.7% at the time of writing, while the French CAC 40 index is currently on the rise.

The WSJ reports that Siemens transferred to a deposit with the European Central Bank. In the initial report by the Financial Times, a name of a bank was not given.
