Commerzbank repays liquidity from first Long-Term Refinancing Operation (LTRO) of ECB

Commerzbank group today repaid in full the liquidity of 10 billion euros raised in the first Long-Term Refinancing Operation (LTRO) by European Central Bank (ECB). In December 2011 the Commerzbank subsidiary Hypothekenbank Frankfurt (at that time Eurohypo) had participated in the ECB tendering process.

As a result of the stabilising measures of the European Central Bank, as well as the ongoing reduction of the portfolio in the Non-Core Assets (NCA) segment, the bank has repaid this liquidity, as announced in November 2012, two years before it is due.
