AMSTERDAM, April 2 (Reuters) - SNS Bank, owned by the Dutch state, reported 2014 net profit excluding one-off items up nearly 12 percent to 294 million euros ($317 million) thanks to higher interest income and fewer loan impairments.
SNS is part of the bank and insurance group SNS Reaal NV, which was nationalised at a cost of 3.7 billion euros in 2013 as insolvency loomed after heavy losses on its real estate portfolio.
