Net income for the first six months of 2020 grew to RUB 9.1 bln (6M2019: RUB 2.2 bln). It was driven by a significant increase in net interest income and a positive effect from operations with securities in 2Q2020.

Return on equity for 6M2020 increased to 10.5%.

Net interest income rose by 44.5% ytd to RUB 27.5 bln, which was driven in particular by corporate loans and debt securities.

Net interest margin widened by 0.3 pp yoy to 2.2% in 1H2020 as interest income grew by 10.7% to RUB 78.1 bln and interest expense reduced by 1.7% to RUB 50.6 bln. Net interest income as percentage of average RWA rose by 0.8 pp yoy to 3.9% as a result of effective utilisation of the bank’s funding base amid the overall reduction of interest rates in the Russian economy. Provisioning charges grew to RUB 12.9 bln, which was largely driven by the retail portfolio during the pandemic. Net interest income after provisions remained, however, on the rise, having increased by 8.0% to RUB 14.6 bln.

Net fee and commission income declined by 15.7% yoy to RUB 4.7 bln, most notably in cash collection and transfers and payments, due to the overall slump in business activity during the quarantine.

Net income from operations with securities grew to the all-time high RUB 8.6 bln. The Bank's well-balanced liquidity management strategy and timely decision to expand its portfolio of bonds, buying mostly federal bonds (OFZ), helped it earn more income in 2Q2020.

Operating income (before provisions) more than doubled yoy reaching RUB 34.7 bln. Operating expense decreased by 0.5% to RUB 10.7 bln as most of major expense items were optimised. The bank continues to demonstrate a high operational efficiency as its cost-to-income ratio (CTI) stabilised at 30.8%.

Total assets rose by 13.6% ytd to RUB 2.8 tln driven primarily by the securities portfolio growing by 56.9% to RUB 465.4 bln due to acquisition of OFZ and currency revaluation, and the net loan portfolio expanding by 11.2% to RUB 877.4 bln.

Gross loan portfolio rose by 12.0% ytd to RUB 929.0 bln. Its corporate and retail portions were 87.5% and 12.5%, respectively. The corporate loan portfolio expanded by 12.9% to RUB 812.5 bln mostly due to new originations and revaluation of its FX-nominated portion in 1H2020. The retail loan portfolio expanded by 6.1% ytd to RUB 116.6 bln. This growth was mainly driven by the mortgage loan portfolio which increased by 16.4% to RUB 27.6 bln, and the car loan portfolio which expanded to RUB 3.3 bln as a result of consolidation with Rusnarbank in May 2020.

Loan portfolio quality is maintained at a high level: the share of non-performing loans (NPL 90+) in the gross loan portfolio declined by 0.2 pp ytd to 3.4%. However, the first half-year saw the share of second basket loans growing to 5.1% from 2.8% as at end-2019, which was mainly driven by corporate customers affected by the quarantine restrictions. Cost of risk (COR) increased by 1.8 pp ytd to 2.8% as the macroeconomic adjustments in the provisioning model were changed in the first quarter and the pandemic affected the financial condition of some corporate and retail borrowers. The NPL90+ coverage ratio grew to 165.9%, as at 30 June 2020, and the ratio of impairment provisions to gross loan portfolio rose to 5.6% compared to 4.9% as at end-2019.

Customer deposits, which represent 55.9% of the bank’s total liabilities or RUB 1,416.2 bln, increased by 5.7% ytd. The deposit base expanded due to an inflow of customer deposits, mainly in June, and FX revaluation. Corporate and retail deposits demonstrate a stable positive growth, having increased by 6.9% and 3.6% ytd to RUB 912.6 bln and RUB 503.6 bln, respectively. The ratio of net loans to deposits was 62.0% for the first six months of 2020.

The bank’s total capital according to the Basel III standards increased by 3.0% ytd to RUB 312.0 bln mainly owing to currency revaluation. The Basel III capital adequacy ratio was 19.8% and the Tier I capital ratio was 13.7%.
