MILAN Jan 22 Banca Monte dei Paschi di Siena , Italy's third biggest lender, said on Tuesday a derivatives contract with Nomura is included in a series of structured transactions that are currently under review.
A report in Italian daily Il Fatto Quotidiano said the trade, dubbed Alexandria, would trigger a loss of at least 220 million euros ($292.93 million) in the Italian bank's 2012 accounts.
In a statement Monte dei Paschi said it was completing a review of past structured transactions still in its portfolio and expected to submit it to its board by mid-February.
The bank will provide a timely indication of any possible impact on its capital stemming from those transactions, the statement said.
