 |  February 22, 2012

The European Commission has approved a Hungarian restructuring plan for FHB, a Hungarian bank. The measures are HUF 30 billion in recapitalization (approximately €100 million) and a HUF 120 billion loan (approximately €400 million).

The Commission found that the state support measures do not violate state aid rules for banks during crisis. The plan will keep distortion of competition at a minimum while restoring FHB viability.
