In an announcement, the credit rating agency said Greek and Cypriot banks will benefit more after a multi-year restructuring of their balance sheets, from restoring profitability and higher interest rates. It added that these banks have made significant progress towards balancing their financial profiles, thanks to strong deposit base and a big leverage of balance sheets, which brings them to a comfortable position to repay long-term loans taken from the European Central Bank.
