Greek banks got an extension of the deadline to report full-year earnings, to allow them to fully account for losses from a debt swap and additional provisions following a review of loan portfolios.
Banks must report their earnings by April 20, according to a legislative amendment passed by parliament yesterday and posted on its website. They had originally been required to report their 2011 earnings by March 31.
