Margus Rink, Chairman of the Management Board of Coop Pank, comments the results:
“In the first quarter of this year, Coop Pank's loan portfolio exceeded one billion euros. This was one of the five goals we set ourselves during the IPO in 2019 and promised to meet at the latest by the end of 2022.
We have seen strong demand for private financing throughout the quarter, and the war in Ukraine that began at the end of February has so far had no effect on private loan demand.
In terms of corporate financing, we made one of the strongest quarters ever. At the same time, we can see that the ongoing war has had an impact on business confidence. Uncertainty about the future, deteriorating access to raw materials, rising energy prices, continuing supply chain failures are all forcing companies to re-evaluate and adjust their investment plans.
Based on the above, our quarterly results also include an extraordinary provision in the amount of 0.7 million euros to cover possible loan losses due to the impact of the war.
In addition to the growth of loan portfolio, also the volume of bank deposits continued to grow. The increase in the share of demand deposits to 50% is gratifying. This will reduce our costs of financing and allow us to compete even better on the credit market.
The growth of the loan portfolio led to a significant increase in income. At the same time, the bank's expenses remained at the same level as in the previous quarter. As a result of these trends, the bank's cost / income ratio fell to 54% and the return on equity rose to 12.3%.”
