Losses for 797 millions in three months

(ANSA) - Milan, November 12 - Troubled Italian bank Monte dei Paschi di Siena (Mps) on Wednesday reported losses amounting to 1.150 billion euros for the first nine months of 2014. In the last three months of the period MPS incurred losses equal to 797 million euros, it said.
