SEB says report of possible loss from SAS exaggerated
STOCKHOLM Nov 15 (Reuters) - Swedish banking group SEB strongly rejected on Thursday a media report which said it faced large losses from any bankruptcy of troubled airline SAS.
Daily Svenska Dagbladet wrote on Thursday that SEB faced a loss of up to 4 billion Swedish crown ($589.45 million) from guarantees on credit card payments should SAS, which this week launched a sweeping restructuring plan, went bankrupt.
"The numbers that have been mentioned in Swedish media concerning SEB's potential loss are not correct," the bank said in a statement on its home page.
"The numbers are grossly exaggerated." ($1 = 6.7859 Swedish crowns)
