Partial Bankia sale possible by year-end if Catalonia crisis resolved - Econ Min

MADRID, Oct 26 (Reuters) - A partial sale of Spanish state-held lender Bankia is possible by the end of 2017 if a crisis prompted by a secession bid by the wealthy region of Catalonia is resolved, Economy Minister Luis de Guindos said on Thursday.

The government has until the end of 2019 to privatise the bank in an effort to recoup money provided as part of its state rescue in 2012. (Reporting by Paul Day, writing by Isla Binnie; editing by Jesús Aguado)
