BNP Paribas (EU:BNP)
Historical Stock Chart
6 Months : From Jan 2019 to Jul 2019
By Pietro Lombardi
BNP Paribas SA (BNP.FR) is selling its remaining stake in First Hawaiian Inc (FHB) via the sale of 24.9 million shares by an affiliate of the French bank.
"Following completion of the secondary offering, it is expected that BNP Paribas will have fully exited its stake," the bank said Wednesday.
The deal should have "a negligible positive impact" on BNP's core tier 1 ratio in the first quarter of the year, it said.
The French banking giant has progressively reduced its stake in First Hawaiian. In July, it said it would reduce its stake following the sale of 20 million shares by an affiliate.
