Net income for 9 months of 2016 amounted to RUB 8.3 bln demonstrating a significant growth compared to RUB 1.5 bln for 9M2015. This positive trend was due to a considerable increase of net interest income and net fee income on the back of quality growth of the Bank's business amid gradually stabilising business activity.

Net interest income was RUB 31.4 bln for 9M2016 having grown by 77.3% yoy. Net interest margin for 9 months of 2016 grew slightly to 3.6%.

Net fee income was RUB 7.9 bln for 9M2016 having grown by 50.5% yoy. The fee and commission income was mainly driven by cash collection fees which accounted for 20.3% of the gross fee and commission income (9M2015: 15.0%) as a result of the Bank’s acquisition of NCO INKAKHRAN in November 2015.

Operating income (before provisions) grew by 87.4% yoy to RUB 44.8 bln. Operating expense increased by 36.7% to RUB 10.1 bln due to the growth of staff costs to RUB 5.7 bln and growth of some administrative expense items mainly caused by the acquisition of INKAKHRAN. The Bank demonstrates high operational efficiency: its CTI ratio remains at the all-time low 23.0% in 3Q2016, far below 28.1% reported in 3Q2015.

Gross loan portfolio (before provisions) rose 3.7% to RUB 653.2 bln. The corporate loan portfolio mainly grew in the 3rd quarter, expanding by 7.3% for the 9 months up to RUB 547.2 bln. The retail loan portfolio shrank by 11.5% to RUB 106.0 bln as the Bank tightened its quality criteria for new originations.

The ratio of non-performing loans (NPL90+) in the gross loan portfolio decreased from 5.1% to 4.8% over the 9 months of 2016 (1H2016: 5.0%). Loan loss provisions decreased from 5.9% of the Bank's gross portfolio as at end-2015 to 5.6% as at the end of the reporting period mainly due to the write-off of a number of large corporate loans provisioned at 100%. Cost of risk in the gross loan portfolio decreased from 5.4% at the start of the year to 5.1% while the NPL90+ coverage ratio increased from 113.7% to 116.9%.

Customer deposits reduced by 4.7% for 9M2016 to RUB 856.7 bln or 70.8% of the Bank's total liabilities.

Capital adequacy ratio calculated in accordance with Basel III grew from 16.5% as at end-2015 to 17.4% as at 3Q2016. Tier I capital ratio was 10.7%.
