Societe Generale raises

French bank Societe Generale SA says it has completed a ⁈llion capital increase in order to pay back government bailout money.
Societe General said it would repay a total of ⁈llion to the government on November 4.
The rest of the money will strengthen SocGen's capital position and fund the acquisition of 20 percent of French lender Credit du Nord from Franco-Belgian lender Dexia SA.
Two of France's other leading banks, Credit Agricole SA and BNP Paribas, have also made plans to repay the billions of euros they got from the French government to keep them lending when credit markets dried up from the financial crisis.
