9M 2014 FINANCIAL RESULTS
ALPHA TRUST ANDROMEDA S.A. released its financial results for the nine month period of 2014 under the International Financial Reporting Standards.
During the third quarter and particularly in September conditions in domestic money and capital markets deteriorated, mainly due to a general trend of reducing risk exposure globally. At the same time, a series of developments such as the upcoming stress tests of systemic banks and the increased political uncertainty have led to increased volatility in spite of the fiscal adjustment that remains on track.
In the nine month period of 2014, ALPHA TRUST – ANDROMEDA S.A. marked losses after tax amounting to euro 0.390 mil., compared to earnings after tax amounting to euro 0.721 mil. in the respective period last year.
