The Laiki Bank ex-rights shares ad­just­ment dragged the CSE lower with the com­pany deny­ing that there was a 3-way merger in the mak­ing with Marfin and Eg­na­tia, while Vas­si­liko Ce­ment an­nounced it was to pro­duce 40% of its en­ergy needs from waste, ac­cord­ing to the is­sue 664, on March 29, 2006.

Laiki of­fi­cials de­nied that a 3-way merger was in the mak­ing with Marfin and Eg­na­tia, af­ter An­dreas Vgenopou­los’ in­vest­ment arm con­trolled 9% of Laiki and ac­quired 34% of Eg­na­tia.

Laiki trou­bles:

The bank’s General Man­ager Michalis Louis re­ferred to sim­i­lar com­ments by Chair­man Kikis Lazarides and Deputy Chair­man Vgenopou­los. This fol­lowed con­cerns that the stock was un­der pres­sure and had lost 9% so far when a 23cent ad­just­ment of the shares that trade ex-rights forced the CSE lower. The Bank of Cyprus stock was also un­der pres­sure, shed­ding some 1.5% in Cyprus and in Athens.

Vas­si­liko waste:

Vas­si­liko Ce­ment Works in­ten­si­fied its ef­forts to mod­ernise and cut costs say­ing it would pro­duce up to 40% of its en­ergy needs from lo­cally pro­cessed re­cy­cled waste, fol­low­ing the favourable trend in pro­duc­tion and ex­ports as sales were up 15% to CYP 45.8 mln.
