MILAN Nov 13 Banco Popolare, Italy's fourth-largest bank, said on Tuesday its nine-month net loss was 54 million euros after its so-called fair value option (or issues related to debt revaluation).
Not including a loss due to the fair value option of 220 million euros, its net consolidated profit was 166 million euros.
The lender said its Core Tier 1 ratio, a key measure of financial strength, stood at 9.8 percent at end-September, including the extraordinary capital buffer required by the European Banking Authority.
The bank said it posted a 116.3 million loss from associate Agos Ducato. (Reporting by Jennifer Clark)
