In December 2011, the outstanding amount at the end of period (hereinafter „the outstanding amount“) of net external assets of monetary financial institutions (MFIs) decreased by LTL 2.1 billion remaining in the positive territory for more than a year. At the end of December 2011, the annual growth rate of M3 was 14.2%. As a result of transactions, its outstanding amount grew over the month by LTL 4.3 billion, but declined by LTL 4.5 billion as a result of other changes related mainly to the reclassification of a bank, the licence of which was cancelled, into a non-financial corporation. Euro loans dominated in the structure of lending to residents, excluding MFIs: at the end of the month they accounted for 69.2% of total loans, a slight increase at the expense of a smaller share of litas loans.

The above data was released by the Statistics Department of the Bank of Lithuania.
