Good afternoon. This is Paul Mylonas. I’m here with Anthimos Thomopoulos, the Deputy CEO; with Babis Mazarakis, the CFO; and Mr. Fragkiadakis, the Group Treasurer. Thanks for joining us for the Q3 results call, and as usual, we’ll start off with remarks from Anthimos and then we’ll go to Q&A.
Thanks, Paul. Good afternoon, everyone from me as well. Good morning to those of you dialing in from the U.S.
Let me start with the key highlights of this quarter. In an environment be set by uncertainty, the nine month attributable PAT came close to flat at just minus €7 million. Obviously, before the impact of our participation in the PSI program and the impairment charges we took in the second quarter for the Greek government bonds that we hold.
