Net income for 2016 was RUB 10.9 bln. The increase in net income was mainly due to the growth of interest and fee income on the back of good quality growth of the Bank’s business amid gradually stabilising business activity. Net interest income grew by 37.6% to RUB 40.3 bln.
Fee and commission income increased by 43.4% compared to 2015 and reached RUB 13.4 bln. That growth was notably driven by cash collection fees that soared by 67.4% to RUB 2.6 bln, partly because of the acquisition of INKAKHRAN in November 2015.
Net interest margin decreased to 3.3% as the percentage of highly liquid assets on the Bank’s balance sheet expanded.
Operating income (before provisions) grew by 49.7% to RUB 58.7 bln. Operating expense increased by 35.3% to RUB 15.2 bln as the Bank expanded its business. The Bank's operational efficiency improved, as evidenced by the cost-to-income (CTI) ratio reducing to 24.6%.
Total assets rose by 29.8% to RUB 1,568.0 bln. The main balance sheet item, gross loan portfolio, increased by 5.8% to RUB 667 bln in 2016, owing to the corporate loan portfolio expanding by 11.0% to RUB 566.2 bln mainly due to loans made to high-quality corporate customers. The retail loan portfolio shrank by 16.0% to RUB 100.6 bln as requirements to customers became stricter. The share of corporate loans in the total loan portfolio grew from 81.0% as at end-2015 to 84.9% as at end-2016. The ratio of non-performing loans (NPL90+) decreased by 2.8 pp to 2.3%. Improvement of the loan portfolio quality is evidenced by the drop of cost of risk to 4.6% as at end-2016 from 5.4% as at end-2015. The loan loss provisions grew to RUB 40.2 bln. The NPL90+ coverage ratio increased from 113.7% as at end-2015 to 263.3% as at end-2016.
Customer deposits stood at 47.1% of the Bank's total liabilities having decreased by 23.3% to RUB 689.5 bln, mainly because corporate deposits shrank by 36.8% to RUB 440.8 bln in line with scheduled expiration. Retail deposits demonstrated stable growth, having increased by 22.8% to RUB 248.7 bln. The ratio of net loans to deposits increased to 90.9% as at end-2016.
As a means to diversify its liabilities structure, CREDIT BANK OF MOSCOW placed 5-year USD 500 mln 5.875% senior unsecured Eurobonds due 2021 on the Irish Stock Exchange on 27 October 2016.
Capital adequacy ratio calculated in accordance with Basel III reduced from 16.5% as at end-2015 to 14.7% as at end-2016. The Tier I capital ratio increased from 9.2% to 9.4%. The Bank’s total capital calculated in accordance with Basel III demonstrated a slight decrease by 1.7% to RUB 159.8 bln, mainly due to devaluation of FX-nominated subordinated loans as a result of rouble appreciation.
At the end of 2016, CREDIT BANK OF MOSCOW had 91 offices, 24 stand-alone cash desks, 1,026 ATMs and 5,725 payment terminals (as of 31 December 2015, these figures were 62, 21, 927 and 5,443 respectively).
