Spain’s banks have a combined capital shortfall of 59.3 billion euros, according to a stress test the Spanish government commissioned consultants Oliver Wyman to carry out.

That figure doesn’t include impact of mergers underway or differed tax assets. Including those two elements, the shortfall declines to 53.7 billion euros.

Banco Popular Espanol SA needs 3.22 billion euros in an adverse scenario, after the tax impact. Banco Santander SA, Banco Bilbao Vizcaya Argentaria SA, CaixaBank SA, Banco Sabadell SA, Kutxabank, Bankinter SA and Unicaja need no additional capital, the Bank of Spain said in a statement.
