Leaders of Landsbanki Bank Meet Prime Minister

Björgólfur Thor Björgólfsson and other representatives of Landsbanki Bank met with Prime Minister Geir H. Haarde in his ministry last night, allegedly to discuss the possible merger of Landsbanki and Glitnir Bank.

“I won’t tell you anything,” Björgólfsson told Fréttabladid after the meeting. According to Fréttabladid’s sources, at the meeting the situation of financial markets following the state’s acquisition of a 75 stake in Glitnir was discussed.

Fréttabladid also claims that representatives of Landsbanki are interested in merging with Glitnir to secure the solid equity of a combined bank. No one is prepared to comment on this theory in public.
