Net profit at the bank jumped by 25 percent for the April through June period from the same quarter last year to 1.35 billion euros, considerably higher than the average of 856 million expected by analysts surveyed by the financial news service FactSet. Societe Generale did not specify what the provision was for, but its French rival Credit Agricole saw its shares plummet 10 percent on Tuesday after increasing its provisions by 350 million euros as it was in advanced talks with US authorities for violating rules for dollar transactions with countries under US embargoes.
