SNS Reaal restructuring effort focuses on private investors
AMSTERDAM Jan 28 (Reuters) - Troubled Dutch bank and insurance group SNS Reaal said it was trying to involve private investors in restructuring its property finance division, which would include a significant share issue and subordinated debt transactions.
There was no certainty the restructuring plan which involved private investors was feasible, SNS Reaal said in a statement on Monday
SNS Reaal, which received 750 million euros ($1 billion) of state aid in 2008 during the height of the financial crisis, is expected to require a second state bailout because of problems at its property unit and is due to come up with a restructuring plan next month when it reports its earnings.
