BNP Paribas CEO Jean-Laurent Bonnafe said: “With 2.4 billion euros in net income, BNP Paribas again delivered a very good performance this quarter. The revenues of the operating divisions were up thanks to the good business drive and operating expenses were down as a result of the implementation of the transformation plan. The cost of risk is under control and was down significantly. The Group’s balance sheet is very solid and the increase in the fully loaded Basel 3 common equity Tier 1 ratio to 11.7% testifies to this.”
