In addition, as of bank loans classified as ''doubtful'' and ''bankrupt/de facto bankrupt'', while there have been some newly generated loans and some loans downgraded from the upper category, the total amount of these loans decreased by 1.3 trillion yen as a result of removal of a greater amount of loans from banks' balance sheets.
