Groupama to Report 2011 Net Loss on Greece, CEO Tells Le Figaro

Feb. 28 (Bloomberg) -- Groupama SA, a French customer-owned insurer, will report a 2011 net loss due to costs of more than 2 billion euros ($2.7 billion) stemming from the Greek debt crisis, Chief Executive Officer Thierry Martel told Le Figaro in an interview.

Stock market declines also cost 1.2 billion euros from its stake in Societe Generale SA and 600 million euros from its holdings in Veolia Environnement SA, Martel said, according to the text of the interview published in the newspaper.

Martel said operating results were “very good” and that the insurer’s economic fundamentals were “very strong.”
