The net income for 9M2017 increased by almost 2 times yoy to RUB 16.1 bln. This was partly due to a significant improvement of the loan portfolio quality, which resulted in lower provisioning levels. In addition, the net fee income grew by 22.6% to RUB 9.7 bln on the back of active sales of the Bank’s fee-generating products.

The operating income for the 9 months of 2017 grew by 58.7% yoy to RUB 33.0 bln. As the Bank expands its business, its operating expense increased by 20.1% to RUB 12.1 bln, mainly due to the growth of staff costs by 28.0% to 7.3 bln., but the Bank’s operational efficiency remained at a high level, as witnessed by the traditionally low cost-to-income (CTI) ratio (before provisions), which was 28.4% in the reporting period.

In the 9 months of 2017, as interest rates declined in the Russian banking market and highly liquid assets represented a significant percentage of the Bank’s balance sheet, its net interest margin decreased to 2.8%, and the net interest income as percentage of average RWA changed slightly to 4.3%.

The Bank’s total assets grew by 13.5% ytd to RUB 1,780.1 bln, mainly owing to the expansion of the net loan portfolio after provisions by 25.0% to RUB 783.5 bln and deposits in banks and other financial institutions by 11.1% to RUB 727.7 bln.

The gross loan portfolio grew by 24.1% ytd to RUB 827.5 bln, owing to the corporate loan portfolio expanding by 29.4% to RUB 732.7 bln mainly due to loans issued to high-quality large caps. The Bank’s cautious approach to retail lending led to reduction of its retail loan portfolio by 5.8% ytd to RUB 94.8 bln. The share of corporate loans in the total loan portfolio grew to 88.5% from 84.9% as at end-2016. The ratio of non-performing loans (NPL90+) decreased by 0.6 pp to 1.7%. The improving loan portfolio quality was also evidenced by a reduction in the cost of risk to 1.9% in the reporting period from 4.6% as at end-2016. The NPL90+ coverage ratio increased from 263.3% as at end-2016 to 322.1% as at 9M2017.

The customer deposits increased by 39.0% ytd to RUB 958.7 bln, which is 59.2% of the Bank's total liabilities. The ratio of loans after provisions to deposits was 81.7%.

The Bank’s total capital according to the Basel III standards increased by 61.6% to RUB 258.2 bln, mainly due to USD 600 mln and USD 700 mln subordinated Eurobonds placed in April and May which were factored in Tier 2 and Tier 1 capital calculations, respectively, and also as a result of inclusion in its Tier 2 capital of two subordinated deposits totalling RUB 22.0 bln in October. The Basel III capital adequacy ratio grew from 14.7% as at end-2016 to 23.2% in 3Q2017. The Tier I capital ratio increased from 9.4% to 14.2%.

In October 2017, under the public placement of an additional issue of shares, the Bank raised RUB 14.4 bln of base capital through an SPO on the Moscow Exchange, but this transaction will be shown in its IFRS in future periods.
