Raiffeisen Bank International posts consolidated profit of almost € 1.1 billion in 2010
08. 04. 2011.
All figures are based on International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS). Raiffeisen Bank International AG (RBI) officially commenced its business activities this past October; however, the founding of the new bank was effective retroactively as of 1 January 2010. Apart from year-end figures 2010, all figures are provided on a pro forma basis.
"The year 2010 was a decisive one, both for our company and for its home market Central and
RBI posted a consolidated profit (after tax and non-controlling interests) of € 1,087 million in 2010, which represents an increase of 141.5 per cent compared to RBI's pro forma consolidated profit a year earlier (2009: € 450 million). This result reflects, above all, the positive influence of markedly lower need for net provisioning for impairment losses, which declined by 46.5 per cent to € 1,194 million (pro forma 2009: € 2,232 million). In addition, there was a one-off effect with regard to income taxes. This item was lower in spite of a 58 per cent rise in net income due, in particular, to deferred tax income arising from the recognition of tax loss carry-forwards in
Operating result shows year-on-year stability
RBI's operating result in 2010 fell by 1 per cent to € 2,424 million as a result of higher general administrative expenses and the Hungarian bank levy, which comes under other net operating income.
Decline in provisioning for impairment losses
Due to the improvement in overall economic conditions and the measures taken to stabilize the loan portfolio, provisioning for impairment losses in 2010 fell by 47 per cent or € 1,038 million to € 1,194 million.
Return on equity before tax rises to 13.7 per cent
The return on equity (ROE) before tax rose year-on-year by 4.2 percentage points to 13.7 per cent, primarily due to a reduction in provisioning for impairment losses.
General administrative expenses up by almost 10 per cent
Following a 14 per cent decline in 2009 due to cost-cutting measures and currency effects, general administrative expenses grew by 10 per cent or € 264 million to € 2,980 million in the year under review. In contrast to the previous year, currency appreciation in 2010 partly contributed to a rise in general administrative expenses.
Market-related changes in salary structures and reinstated bonus payments led to an 8 per cent increase in staff expenses to € 1,453 million.
The average number of staff fell by 6 per cent or 3,692 to 59,188, primarily as a result of cutbacks in
As per the end of 2010, RBI had 59,782 employees, which represents an increase of 1.0 per cent in comparison to the end of 2009.
Higher general administrative expenses, which grew by 10 per cent -- and thus by more than operating income, which was up 5 per cent – to reach € 2,980 million were the main reason for the increase in the cost/income ratio by 2.6 percentage points to 55.1 per cent. This ratio of general administrative expenses to operating income is a key measure of a bank's efficiency.
Organic decline in total assets
With the merger of Raiffeisen International and RZB's principal business areas shown retroactively, the total assets increased by € 69.4 billion at the start of the year 2010. It fell year-on-year by € 14.5 billion to € 131.2 billion at year-end. This fall was largely due to interbank business. As a result of the appreciation of the US dollar and most CEE currencies, the total assets increased by approximately € 2.4 billion. Adjusted for these effects, there was an organic reduction of the total assets of around 12 per cent or € 16.9 billion.
