UniCredit Bank Austria Profit Drops on Goodwill, Greece Charges

March 28 (Bloomberg) -- UniCredit SpA’s Bank Austria unit, which owns the Italian lender’s eastern European business, said profit declined by 71 percent last year as it wrote down its Kazakh and Ukrainian banks and posted losses on Greek bonds.

Net income fell to 209 million euros ($279 million) in 2011 from 709 million euros a year earlier due to the charges, most of which were reported in the third quarter. The bank didn’t provide fourth-quarter results. Parent UniCredit yesterday said fourth-quarter profit dropped 65 percent.
