MILAN, June 17 Two Latin American investors and
the Monte dei Paschi foundation have lent almost all their
respective stakes in the Tuscan bank to third parties until July
3, according to a filing published by Italian market regulator
Consob on Tuesday.
Monte dei Paschi is in the second week of a highly
dilutive 5-billion euro rights issue with a drastic shortage of
new shares disrupting trading.
The three shareholders have a combined holding in the bank
of 9 percent. Consob did not say who borrowed the shares.
