RBI: First Quarter Report 2022
Consolidated profit at EUR 442 million with prudent approach to risk costs
 

• Net interest income up 1% quarter-on-quarter, benefiting from higher
rates across the region
• Net fee and commission income up 22% quarter-on-quarter, driven
primarily by increased customer activity in FX business in Russia
• Net trading income at EUR 184 million, mainly from hedging instruments
and own credit spreads relating to certificates business
• Year-to-date provisioning ratio increased significantly to 0.97%,
largely driven by macro downgrades and special risk factors due to war
in Ukraine
• Loans grew 1% in the first quarter, new lending in Russia has largely
been stopped
• Consolidated profit improved 39% quarter-on-quarter to EUR 442 million
• CET1 ratio at 12.3% (transitional, including year-to-date result),
reflecting RWA increases from rating downgrades in Russia, Ukraine,
and Belarus
• Outlook has been updated to reflect lower loan growth and higher risk
cost assumptions

Due to the planned sale of the Bulgarian subsidiary bank and its
participation there has been a change in the statements according to IFRS
5. This business operation is classified as a disposal group held for sale
and reported separately in the statement of financial position. The prior
year figures have not been adapted. The income statement of the Bulgarian
subsidiary bank and its participation is reported under profit/loss from
discontinued operations. The prior year 2021 figures have been adapted
accordingly in the income statement, as were the key ratios.

Outlook
In 2022, net interest income is expected to increase by high single digit
per cent and net fee and commission income by mid-single digit per cent.
We expect stable loan volumes in 2022, with mid-single digit growth in
core CE and SEE markets.
We expect high single digit per cent OPEX growth plus an additional
approximately EUR 100 million integration cost for acquisitions in Czech
Republic (Equa bank) and Serbia (Crédit Agricole Srbija).
Cost/income ratio is expected around 55 %.
The provisioning ratio for 2022 is expected to be up to 100 basis points.
Consolidated return on equity is expected in the 8 to 10 per cent range.
In 2022, we expect the CET1 ratio to recover close to our 13 per cent
target.

Medium term return on equity and payout ratio targets are suspended due to
current uncertainties in Eastern Europe.
