Despite the risks which some people have highlighted with regard to Santander’s absorption of Popular, neither analysts nor investors seem to have been spooked by the massive rights issue launched by Santander last Friday. All in all, it seems the acquisition could be described as something of a dream deal.
Banco Santander has delivered €4.606 BN in attributable profits for the first nine months of 2016, down 22.5% from the same period in 2015 due to the impact of extraordinary items announced in Q2 of this year and Q2 of 2015. Excluding extraordinary items and exchange rate movements, profits grew by 8% year on year to €4.975 BN.
