JSC VTB Bank: VTB Group announces IFRS results for 1Q 2015


JSC VTB Bank / 1st Quarter Results

2015-05-19 / 08:00


VTB Group announces IFRS results for 1Q 2015

19 May 2015

VTB Bank ('VTB' or 'the Bank'), the parent company of VTB Group ('the Group'), today publishes its Interim Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements for the three months ended 31 March 2015, with the Independent Auditor's Report on Review of these Statements.

Andrey Kostin, VTB President and Chairman of the Management Board, said: 'VTB Group's first quarter results reflect the significant challenges that the Russian economy faced at the end of 2014 and beginning of 2015. The sharp rise in interest rates had a detrimental effect on our margins, and the general economic slowdown led us to continue building significant provisions against our credit exposures.

'At the same time, the Russian economy has demonstrated notable resilience to the adverse environment, with both our clients and VTB Group avoiding the more pessimistic scenarios. We maintain adequate coverage of non-performing loans and satisfactory capital levels. We also see that the recent easing of monetary policy is contributing to improved margins and will be supportive of the economy, as well as of VTB Group's performance going forward.

'VTB's business model has proved that it is strong and sustainable even in the most challenging environment, and we remain well-positioned to offer high-quality products and services to our clients. We also continue focusing on initiatives to further optimise costs and to improve the Group's efficiency.'

Tier 1 CAR 9.7% 9.8% (0.1 p.p.)
Total CAR 11.9% 12.0% (0.1 p.p.)
 

- On the back of high interest rates and low economic activity, the Russian banking sector saw a continued slowdown in demand for loans in 1Q 2015. This trend, combined with the seasonality factor, as well as tight lending policies and approval criteria for loan applications, contributed to the contraction of the Group's loan book since the start of the year.

- Loan book quality continued to develop in line with macroeconomic and banking sector trends in 1Q 2015. The NPL ratio was 6.4% of gross customer loans, including those pledged under repurchase agreements (the 'total loan book'), as of 31 March 2015, versus 5.8% as of 31 December 2014. The allowance for loan impairments reached 7.2% of the total loan book as of 31 March 2015, compared to 6.7% at the start of the year. The NPL coverage ratio remained at a conservative level of 112.0% as of 31 March 2015, versus 114.8% as of 31 December 2014.

- The healthy 13.8% growth in deposits during 1Q 2015 was mainly attributable to an increase in deposits from legal entities. This drove the share of customer deposits in the Group's total liabilities up to 57.0% as of 31 March 2015, from 51.3% at the start of the year. With capital markets remaining effectively closed for Russian banks, the Group continued to reduce its reliance on wholesale funding, with the share of debt securities issued in total liabilities falling to 7.0% as of 31 March 2015, from 8.3% as of 31 December 2014. During 1Q 2015, VTB and its subsidiaries made repayments on their international public debt in the total amount of USD 2.0 billion.

- Risk-weighted assets remained substantially unchanged during the first three months of the year, reaching RUB 10,073.3 billion. As a result, VTB Group maintained healthy capital adequacy ratios. As of 31 March 2015, the Group's total and Tier 1 capital adequacy ratios were 11.9% and 9.7% respectively, versus 12.0% and 9.8% as of 31 December 2014.

Income Statement

RUB billion 1Q 2015 1Q 2014 Change, % or p.p.
Net interest income 46.1 89.9 (48.7%)
Net fee and commission income 15.4 14.3 7.7%
Operating income before provisions 89.5 104.7 (14.5%)
Provision charge* (48.9) (48.0) 1.9%
Staff costs and administrative expenses (59.2) (52.8) 12.1%
Net (loss) / profit (18.3) 0.4 -
 

*Includes provision charge for impairment of debt financial assets and provision charge for impairment of other assets, credit related commitments and legal claims.

- VTB Group interest income increased by 44.6% year-on-year to RUB 272.2 billion in 1Q 2015, due to an increase in the Group's interest earning assets and higher interest rates in Russia. At the same time, as the Group's liabilities continued to price in the CBR's key rate hike from December 2014, interest expense surged by 130.0% year-on-year to RUB 226.1 billion for 1Q 2015. This led to a 48.7% year-on-year reduction in net interest income to RUB 46.1 billion for 1Q 2015. These same factors also led to a decrease in the Group's net interest margin to 1.7% for 1Q 2015, versus 4.5% for 1Q 2014.

- The strong fee generating capabilities of Retail business and Transaction banking (as part of Corporate-Investment banking and Mid-Corporate banking) allowed the Group to deliver 7.7% year-on-year growth in net fee and commission income, despite a slowdown in business activity in 1Q 2015.

- Although the challenging economic environment in Russia continues to impact negatively the real sector of the economy, the Group's tight lending and risk management policies helped it to post a considerable quarter-on-quarter decrease in provision charges. This led to a decrease in the Group's cost of risk (annualised ratio of provision charge for loan impairment to average gross loans and advances to customers) to 2.2% in 1Q 2015, from 4.6% in 4Q 2014, and 2.8% in 1Q 2014.

- Staff costs and administrative expenses were up 12.1% year-on-year in 1Q 2015, due to the larger scale of the Group's business. During the quarter, VTB Group continued to reduce its headcount and implement other cost-cutting initiatives across all geographies. The Group's annualised costs-to-average assets ratio improved to 1.9% for 1Q 2015, from 2.3% for 1Q 2014. Despite the slight contraction in its balance sheet, the Group continued to deliver consistent growth in assets per employee, which stood at RUB 125.3 million as of 31 March 2015, versus RUB 120.6 million as of 31 December 2014, and RUB 88.3 million as of 31 March 2014.

- Elevated funding costs and considerable provision charges put pressure on profitability across all segments. For 1Q 2015, Corporate-Investment banking (CIB) delivered RUB 10.1 billion of net profit, despite the macroeconomic headwinds. Mid-Corporate banking (MCB) and Retail business posted net losses of RUB 5.8 billion and RUB 6.0 billion, respectively.

- In the Retail business VTB Group's mortgage loan portfolio was flat in 1Q 2015, as demand for this type of lending slowed in Russia. On the back of weaker real disposable incomes and consumer spending, as well as lower approval rates for the riskiest retail lending products, VTB Group's consumer loan book contracted, which was the main factor behind the decrease in total retail loans in 1Q 2015.

VTB Group gross loans to individuals

RUB billion 31 March 2015 31 Dec 2014 Change, %
Gross loans to individuals 1,901.2 1,945.1 (2.3%)
Mortgage loans 799.2 795.3 0.5%
Consumer loans 856.5 901.1 (4.9%)
Credit cards 118.9 113.8 4.5%
Car loans 119.4 129.7 (7.9%)
Reverse sale and repurchase agreements and other loans 7.2 5.2 38.5%
 

- Mortgage loans reached 42.0% of the Group's gross loans to individuals as of 31 March 2015, versus 40.9% as of 31 December 2014. The share of consumer loans and credit card loans in the portfolio was 45.1% and 6.3%, respectively, versus 46.3% and 5.9% at 31 December 2014. The share of car loans in the portfolio decreased to 6.3% as of 31 March 2015, versus 6.7% at the start of the year.

- VTB Group deposits from individuals grew faster than the market average during the period, which reflects the strength of the Group's deposit-taking franchise, enhanced by VTB24's (the Group's core retail bank) strong brand and the solid deposit-taking capacity of VTB24's private banking business.

- The total number of the Group's retail offices in Russia (operating under the VTB24, Bank of Moscow and Leto Bank brands) stood at more than 1,660 as of 31 March 2015. The combined number of the Group's ATMs exceeded 12,550 at the same date.

- Corporate-Investment banking saw weaker demand for loans from corporate clients due to higher interest rates and subdued levels of business activity. In this environment, the CIB focused on optimising risks and preserving the quality of the Group's loan portfolio. The Group also saw a strong 20.1% increase in corporate customer deposits in 1Q 2015. CIB's net profit of RUB 10.1 billion was supported by the solid results of Transaction banking as well as by a recovery in market prices across various asset classes during 1Q 2015.

- The Group's investment banking franchise, VTB Capital, maintained its status as Russia's leading investment bank, despite challenging conditions and subdued activity in the Russian capital markets, as it once again confirmed its leading position in both trading and investment banking. According to Dealogic, VTB Capital took third place in the domestic debt capital markets bookrunner ranking, and was #1 in equity capital markets in Russia and CIS in 1Q 2015. Also, in April 2015, VTB Bank Custody was recognised as the best in the Russian market in Global Custodian's 2014 client-perception survey.

- Mid-Corporate banking continued to adhere to tight loan origination policies and risk management standards. For 1Q 2015, MCB posted solid fee income, increasing its share in the Group's total net fee and commission income to 21.4%, as VTB's transaction banking business continued to increase its penetration into the medium-sized client segment, in line with the Group's strategy.
