February 15, 2012

Feb. 15 (Bloomberg) -- BNP Paribas SA, which was among the euro-area’s lenders using European Central Bank’s three-year funds in December, hasn’t decided yet whether it will tap it again at the end of February, Chief Executive Officer Jean- Laurent Bonnafe said.

“We don’t need” to tap the funding facility, Bonnafe said in an interview on Bloomberg Television today. “If it’s clever to move, we will move. If it’s not clever, we won’t move,” he said.
