The Bank’s total assets increased by 12.9% to RUB 2,423.5 bln driven by the loan portfolio expanding by 11.2% to RUB 788.7 bln (after provisions) and by deposits in banks and other financial institutions rising by 9.4% to RUB 1,190.1 bln.

Gross loan portfolio expanded by 12.0% in 2019 to RUB 829.2 bln, having grown by 7.3% or RUB 56.6 bln in 4Q. It had a 86.8% share of corporate loans and a 13.2% share of retail loans. The corporate loan portfolio rose by 11.8% yoy (16.4% net of currency revaluation) to RUB 719.4 bln mainly due to loans issued to large high-quality corporate customers. The retail loan portfolio increased by 13.7% yoy to RUB 109.8 bln as unsecured consumer lending rose by 14.1% to RUB 82.4 bln and mortgage lending by 14.6% to RUB 23.7 bln.

Loan portfolio quality is maintained at a high level. After overdue debt (NPL90+) increased in the first half of 2019 due to the deteriorated financial condition of a large corporate borrower, the second half-year saw no adverse changes in the loan portfolio, with NPL90+ declining by 0.3 pp compared to 1H2019 and reaching 3.6%. Loan portfolio quality preservation is also evidenced by the cost-of-risk ratio that was as low as 1.0% at end-2019. The NPL90+ coverage ratio was maintained by the Bank at a good level of 136.6% as at 2019YE.

Customer deposits, representing 60.5% of the total liabilities, demonstrated stable growth in 2019, having increased by 5.3% to RUB 1,339.5 bln. The deposit base expanded mainly due to a strong 29.6% inflow of retail deposits that reached thus RUB 486.2 bln or 36.3% of total deposits. Corporate deposits declined by 4.9% in 2019 to RUB 853.4 bln, having grown, however, by 5.4% in 4Q. The ratio of net loans to deposits increased to 58.9% as at end-2019.

Debt securities issued grew by 60.1% to RUB 168.5 bln after USD 500 mln and EUR 500 mln senior Eurobonds were issued in February and March. Thus, debt securities' proportion in the liabilities structure expanded to 7.6%.

Core Tier I capital ratio calculated in accordance with Basel III rose from 10.7% as at 2018YE to 11.9% as at 2019YE. Total capital adequacy ratio reduced from 21.9% to 21.2%.

Core capital increased by 17.0% yoy to RUB 170.2 bln. The Bank’s total capital according to the Basel III standards rose by 1.8% yoy to RUB 302.9 bln. The capital structure was strengthened by a RUB 14.7 bln SPO carried out on the Moscow Exchange in November 2019. The additional and tier 2 capitals declined because of currency revaluation and partial buyback and cancellation of subordinated Eurobonds CBOM27 and CBOM-perp in November 2019.

Net income for 2019 was RUB 12.0 bln. It fell largely because the perpetual subordinated Eurobonds nominated in a foreign currency were revaluated as the rouble exchange rate continued to climb in 4Q2019, and because net interest income shrank while risk indicators remained at their 2018 levels.

Net interest income decreased by 6.5% yoy to RUB 45.3 bln as interest income rose by 6.8% and interest expense by 14.0% in 2019 due to a faster growth of retail deposits and repricing of large corporate deposits in 1H2019. Net interest income as percentage of average RWA was 3.6%.

Net fee income reduced by 6.6% yoy to RUB 11.5 bln. This was mainly caused by a decrease in settlement and bank transfer fees mostly resulting from retail fee cuts and lower cash handling fee income. However, 2019 saw plastic card fee income grow by 21.2% to RUB 2.9 bln after an upgrade of the loyalty programme helped expand the portfolio of active cards and boost customers’ transaction activity.

Operating income (before provisions) in 2019 was RUB 36.3 bln. Operating expense rose by 9.3% yoy to RUB 21.2 bln as the payroll budget grew by 17.2% to RUB 14.4 bln due to general expansion of the Bank’s business and tougher competition among employers.
