Quotes

"if it (national) also decided to tap markets, it would meet with great success" Bank of Greece Chief George Provopoulos said
"i am optimistic that it (eurobank) will raise all the money it needs from capital markets" Provopoulos said
"the successful restructuring of the banking system and the recapitalization of banks from the market following the latest stress-test exercise have facilitated the way for the greek government to tap the market" George Provopoulos said
...But in an interview to be published in Sunday's Kathimerini newspaper, George Provopoulos was quoted as saying: "if were unduly conservative and imposed an overcapitalisation of the banks, we would run two serious risks. "first, we would shake the trust of depositors, who would say, rightly, that for the banks to need a new big capital boost, they must be weak. "the second danger would be that private investors who placed money in the capital increases of banks as part of last summer's recapitalisation would lose any confidence in the country and its banking system." greece's four big lenders - national bank, piraeus bank, eurobank and alpha bank -were recapitalised last year to the tune of 28 billion euros ($38.6 billion). this month's bank of greece health check, intended to establish whether they had enough capital to withstand rising bad loans, a further economic slump and other shocks, found that they needed to raise an extra 6.4 billion euros. greece's bank rescue fund, the hfsf, which recapitalised the banks last summer, has a remaining buffer of about 8 billion to 9 billion euros to address any additional needs. the european central bank is due to carry out its own eu-wide health check later this year, and provopoulos said he believed the results would be "close to ours".
