In 2007, LBB was taken over by the German Federation of Savings Banks (DSGV). Berlin was forced to sell its stake by the European Commission as a condition of permitting the bailout of the then Bankgesellschaft Berlin, which had got into difficulties due to a real-estate scandal.[citation needed] In 2010, a net profit of EUR 317 million was reported.[1]
