BNP Paribas is now a leading European banking group, in terms of its equity, income and its global presence.

In 1999, the Group had 3.26 billion Euros in pro-forma net income before the restructuring charges, up 54%. This result was driven by a sharp rise in the gross operating income (+44.7%). The Group's ROE reached 17.1%.

The integration is well under way. It is on schedule and synergies have been confirmed. The Group's goal is now to outperform its industrial business plan.

BNP Paribas has the resources required to implement its ambitious growth strategy, in corporate and investment banking as well as in retail banking, asset management and private banking.

Already France's leading e-Finance banking group by the number of customers and the level of its investments, BNP Paribas has incorporated the Internet revolution in the strategies of all its core businesses. It has already moved to invest 700 million Euros in the Internet over the 2000-2002 period and to step up its partnerships strategy.
