Sub Prime woes continue. Boooooooo

France’s biggest retail bank Credit Agricole made a loss in the last three months of 2007, hit by a hefty charge at its Calyon investment banking arm. Credit Agricole lost 857m euros ($1.3bn, £657m) in the fourth quarter, after Calyon took a 3.3bn-euro charge on losses related to the credit crisis.

That charge is worse than Credit Agricole’s forecast in December of a 2.5bn-euro loss.

The bank also dismissed rumours that it might bid for Societe Generale.
