Q3 2009 summary of the Bank’s consolidated results

In Q3 2009, the Bank’s Total Operating Income (Revenue) amounted to GEL 79.3 million, a 1.6% decline q-o-q (down 7.7% y-o-y), a result of a 1.1% q-o-q decrease of Net Interest Income to GEL 48.9 million and a 2.4% q-o-q decline of Net Non-Interest Income to GEL 30.4 million (up 12.3% y-o-y). The decline of Net Interest Income during the quarter was due to contraction of consolidated gross loan book, which was down by 3.8% q-o-q (lower rate of decline than 8.5% in Q2 2009). Despite high liquidity during the quarter, Net Interest Margin (NIM) stood at 9.1% in Q3 2009. Lower Net Non-Interest Income was a result of an 8.4% q-o-q decrease (down 31.4% y-o-y) of Net Foreign Currency Related Income to GEL 6.5 million, attributed to the decreased FX transaction volumes and a 9.3% q-o-q decrease of Net Fees and Commission Income to GEL 10.5 million (down 18.8% y-o-y), reflecting the contraction of the loan book during the quarter. Net Income from Documentary Operations increased 30.6% q-o-q to GEL 2.3 million, (up 37.3% y-o-y), a result of the increase in trade finance activities. Net Other Non-Interest Income increased 3.5% q-o-q to GEL 11.1 million, mostly due to the increase in brokerage income during the quarter.

NNOI in Q3 2009 increased 0.3% q-o-q to GEL 34.3 million, (down 5.4% y-o-y), on the back of 2.9% q-o-q improvement of Total Consolidated Recurring Operating Costs for the quarter to GEL 45.0 million (down 9.4% y-o-y). Personnel Costs, the largest Recurring Cost item, was reduced 3.8% q-o-q largely an effect of the cost cutting measures implemented at BG Bank, Ukraine. Such measures include the closure of 13 branches bringing the number of branches to 18 and headcount reduction by 168 full time employees (or 23% reduction) since the beginning of the year. Total Recurring Operating Costs excluding Personnel Costs reached a total of GEL 22.6 million in Q3 2009, a 2.1% decrease q-o-q. Normalized Cost/Income ratio (Costs exclude Net Non-Recurring Costs) decreased to 56.7 % in Q3 2009 from 57.5% in Q2 2009 and 57.8% in Q3 2008. Total Non-Recurring Costs for the quarter amounted to GEL 1.9 million, that include fees and commissions related to the increase of the Bank’s GDRs block listing on the London Stock Exchange in August 2009.

The Bank’s Net Provision Expense for the quarter amounted to GEL 30.0 million, compared to the Net Provision Expense of GEL 40.7 million in Q2 2009 and GEL 103.2 million in Q3 2008. The 26.3% improvement of Net Provision Expense for the quarter was largely driven by the improving market environment in Georgia. The Bank’s Net Provision Expense in Georgia amounted to GEL 17.7 million (compared to Net Provision Expense of GEL 29.6 million in Q2 2009), while BG Bank’s Net Provision Expense reached GEL 12.9 million (compared to Net Provision Expense of GEL 11.0 million in Q2 2009), or 17.1% q-o-q increase, reflecting the management’s conservative approach to provisioning in Ukraine.

YTD 2009 summary of the Bank’s consolidated results

In nine months of 2009 the Bank’s Total Operating Income (Revenue) decreased 4.5% y-o-y to GEL 241.6 million, due to 8.3% y-o-y decrease in Net Interest Income to GEL 150.8 million, which more than offset a 2.6% y-o-y increase in Net Non-Interest Income to GEL 90.8 million. The decline of Net Interest Income reflects the decrease of the consolidated gross loan book from GEL 2,059.7 million at the end of Q3 2008 to GEL 1,833.1 million in Q3 2009. Net Foreign Currency Related Income declined by 32.5% y-o-y to GEL 22.3 million mostly due to decrease in volumes and lower FX volatility throughout the year. The Bank’s Net Fees and Commission Income decreased 8.2% y-o-y to GEL 33.2 million due to decline in lending activity, while Net Income from Documentary Operations grew by 26.4% y-o-y to GEL 6.3 million. Net Other Non-Interest Income reached GEL 28.9 million, up 103.7% y-o-y, mostly driven by the increased profitability of the Bank’s insurance subsidiary, resulting in the Net Insurance Income of GEL 13.0 million for the nine months of 2009, up 123.2% y-o-y. Total Recurring Operating Costs decreased by 4.9% y-o-y to GEL 135.9 million, mostly due to a 17.0% y-o-y decline of Personnel Costs, a result of the cost optimization measures, including headcount reduction implemented by the Bank in Georgia and Ukraine.

Net Provision Expense in nine months of 2009 amounted to GEL 102.8 million, which compares to GEL 117.8 million Net Provision Expense booked by the Bank in Q3 2008.

In Q3 2009 loan loss reserves amounted to GEL 173.7 million or 9.5% of consolidated gross loan book, up from 8.1% in Q2 2009, the increase due to the decline of the gross loan book in Georgia and increased reserves in Ukraine.

The increase in Net Income for the quarter was a result of the lower provisions booked by the Bank, which stood at GEL 17.7 million on a standalone basis in Q3 2009 compared to provisions of GEL 29.6 million and GEL 24.0 million booked by the Bank in Q2 2009 and Q1 2009, respectively.

Net Non-Interest Income amounted to GEL 17.0 million, up 1.1 % q-o-q and down 11.6% y-o-y.

Comment:

“We are very pleased that in Q3 2009 we started to observe signs of improving operating environment, which in our view is driven by positive macro economic developments in Georgia. In our view this is a beginning of a positive long-term trend and I am pleased that the Bank is well positioned capital-and liquidity-wise to capture the growth opportunities which lie ahead in 2010 and beyond. In order to stimulate demand for our loan products we are decreasing interest rates on retail and corporate loans in Georgia in Q4 2009. At the same time we made two rounds of interest rate cuts on retail and wealth management time deposits, in August by 0.25-0.5% and in November by further 0.75% to 1.0%,” commented Nicholas Enukidze, Chairman of the Supervisory Board.
