The financial results obtained by BRD - Groupe Société Générale in the first quarter of the current year reflect the still low economic activity and the stagnation of the demand for banking services. However in the course of the quarter some positive signs still timid at this stage appeared and have to be confirmed in Q2 2011:

The net banking income reached RON 787 million, and the gross operating income amounted to RON 443 million, which we deem satisfactory in the current context.
