Credit Agricole Ukraine achieved in 2015 a Net Result of UAH 441 million, in increase by UAH 287 million as compared to 2014*

23 February 2016

According to preliminary financial statements data elaborated in compliance with IFRS standards, Credit Agricole Ukraine (CAU) reached in 2015 a positive net profit of UAH 441 million, showing an increase by 186% as compared to 2014.

This result has been achieved on higher revenues. CAU’s Net banking Income (NBI) increased by 37% (or by UAH 745 million) in 2015 despite a difficult economic environment in Ukraine and the negative effects of the depreciation of the local currency.

These figures confirm the resilience of CAU business model and its ability to generate high positive net results in challenging economic conditions. The bank strengthened in 2015 its liquidity and capital positions.

Short overview of CAU’s Income Statement:

  • Net interest income (NII) increased in 2015 by 48% or UAH 654 million on effective margin management
  • Net commission income increased in 2015 by 35% or by UAH 134 million mainly on higher commissions on cash and settlement and currency market transactions
  • Other NBI decreased by 17% due to the negative impact of UAH depreciation on the revaluation of provisions in foreign currency.
  • Administrative expenses increased by 18% (or by UAH 132 million) as compared to 2014 mainly on higher staff charges (+19% or UAH 79 million). Despite the crisis, CAU continued to increase the salaries of its employees
  • Cost of Risk increased in 2015 by 22% vs 2014 level, which allowed the bank to increase further its coverage ratio of non-performing credit exposure from 60% to 71%.

Other significant information on CAU’s financials:

  • Cash and cash equivalents increased by UAH 3.4 billion (more than doubled as compared to 2014), which reflects a strengthening of CAU liquidity position
  • Regulatory capital adequacy ratio (N2) as of the end of January 2016 reached 18.7%, far above the regulatory level of 10%. Credit Agricole Ukraine, unlike some other banks, didn’t require in 2015 any capital increase and does not presently foresee such a need.
