A Reuters report said Alessandro Profumo, chairman of Monte dei Paschi di Siena, will be revealing his decision whether to stay or resign from his post at the Italian lender in a January meeting.
The intention of Monte dei Paschi di Siena's largest shareholder to postpone the planned cash call until the middle of next year has irked Profumo and chief executive officer Fabrizio Viola.
Italian airline Alitalia said on Thursday that it was able to raise EUR173 million of EUR300 million it needed in its cash call from investors with help from Intesa Sanpaolo and UniCredit.
Alitalia CEO Gabriele del Tochio would be submitting to the board for its decision for an industrial plan which would include 2,000 employee layoffs in order to keep the Italian air carrier aloft.
