In 2013, an Italian bank, Banca Popolare di Bari (‘BPB’), expressed an interest in the subscription of additional capital in another Italian bank, Banca Tercas (‘Tercas’), which had been placed under special administration in 2012. In 2014, after satisfying itself that the measures adopted for the benefit of Tercas were economically more beneficial than reimbursement of that bank’s depositors, theFondo Interbancario di Tutela dei Depositi (FITD) decided to cover Tercas’s negative equity and to grant it certain guarantees. Those measures were approved by Banca d’Italia. The Commission initiated a detailed investigation into those measures as it was uncertain whether they were compatible with EU rules on State aid. By today’s judgment, the General Court annuls the Commission’s decision, as it concluded, incorrectly, that the measures granted to Tercas entailed the use of State resources and were imputable to the State.
