National Bank of Greece (TELL) SA, Alpha Bank SA and Eurobank Ergasias SA must also offer guarantees to Credit Agricole in return for its continued coverage of a funding gap at Emporiki, the financial website said, adding that the French lender will announce its decision within the first 10 days of October.
