Bank of Georgia (LSE: BGEO, GSE: GEB) (the “Bank”), Georgia’s leading bank, announced today its Q3 2010 and year-to-date (YTD) 2010 consolidated results (IFRS based, derived from management accounts), reporting a Q3 2010 Net Income of GEL 20.8 million and YTD 2010 Net Income of GEL 57.2 million.

Q3 2010 highlights

  • For the first time in the past three years, the Bank posted double digit quarter-on-quarter growth of the Consolidated Net Normalized Operating Income (NNOI) which grew 15.6% q-o-q to GEL 40.1 million, up 16.9% y-o-y, while Consolidated Profit Before Provisions increased 6.2% q-o-q to GEL 38.5 million, up 18.7% y-o-y
  • Consolidated Net Cash Flow from operating activities increased 67.4% y-o-y to GEL 138.7 million in nine months in 2010
  • Consolidated Loan book quality improved as consolidated NPLs declined from GEL 173.7 million in Q2 2010 to GEL 131.5 million in Q3 2010. Consolidated NPL coverage ratio stood at 141.4% in Q3 2010 compared to 113.5% in Q2 2010
  • Cost of Funds continued to decline reaching 7.9% in Q3 2010, down from 8.4% in Q2 2010 and down from 8.6% in Q1 2010
  • Consolidated Client Deposits grew 11.5% q-o-q to GEL 1,658.5 million, up 30.3% YTD and up 40.3% y-o-y, driven by:
    • Retail Banking (RB) Client Deposits 10.2% q-o-q increase to GEL 494.2 million, up 31.4% YTD and up 51.5% y-o-y;
    • Corporate Banking (CB) Client Deposits 17.1% q-o-q increase to GEL 799.4 million, up 36.1% YTD and up 34.0% y-o-y;
    • Wealth Management (WM) Client Deposits 3.6% q-o-q increase to GEL 218.7 million, up 34.1% YTD and up 62.7% y-o-y.
  • Extended approximately GEL 485.9 million,on a standalone basis, (up 103.3% y-o-y and down 3.0% q-o-q), in new loans to an estimated 24,000 clients (through credit cards, mortgages, consumer and other loans) and to small-and-medium sized companies and corporate clients
  • Net Loan to Client Deposit Ratio declined to 124.3% in Q3 2010 from 133.3% in Q2 2010 and 140.3% in Q3 2009
  • Consolidated gross loan portfolio grew 3.1% q-o-q to GEL 2,247.3 million, up 21.4% YTD and up 23.1% y-o-y

“I am pleased to note that despite the 11.5% q-o-q client deposit growth outpacing the 3.1% q-o-q growth of gross loan book, the Bank’s Net Interest Margin (NIM) remained flat at 8.2% in Q3 2010. This is primarily due to the decrease of Cost of Funds for the second consecutive quarter to 7.9% in Q3 2010 down from 8.3% in Q2 2010 and down from 8.6% in Q1 2010, as deposit rate cuts earlier in the year continued to produce results in the third quarter 2010.

Another highlight of the quarter is a 24.3% q-o-q decrease in consolidated NPLs to GEL 131.5 million representing 5.9% of the gross loan book. Improved operating environment in Georgia led to the improvement of the Bank’s asset quality as standalone NPLs that peaked at GEL 136.8 million, or 7.4% of gross loan book in Q1 2010 declined to GEL 96.5 million, or 4.7% of the gross loan book as of 30 September 2010. Our Georgian retail portfolio, mortgage and credit card portfolios in particular, started to improve and we reduced our consolidated loan loss reserves by GEL 11.3 million q-o-q, bringing the loan loss reserves to gross loan book ratio down to 8.3% from 9.0% in Q2 2010. Improved asset quality and strong balance sheet have been reflected in the healthy increase of net operating cash flow by 67.4% to GEL 138.6 in nine months in 2010 compared to nine months in 2009”, commented Giorgi Chiladze, Deputy Chief Executive Officer, Finance.

Q3 2010 summary of the Bank’s consolidated results

In Q3 2010, the Bank’s Total Operating Income (Revenue) increased 10.5% q-o-q to GEL 91.2million, (up 15.0% y-o-y), a result of 9.4% q-o-q growth of Net Interest Income to GEL 56.5 million (up 15.5% y-o-y), and 12.3% q-o-q growth of Net Non-Interest Income to GEL 34.7 million (up 14.1% y-o-y). On a quarterly basis, Interest Income growth of 5.8% q-o-q outpaced the 2.3% q-o-q growth of Interest Expense, the effect of the increase in lending and the deposit rate cuts in the beginning of the year, respectively.

On a year-on-year basis, Interest Income in Q3 2010 grew by 17.8% compared to 20.3% y-o-y growth of Interest Expense, as the Bank’s Client Deposits were 40.3% higher as of 30 September 2010 compared to the same period last year.

The quarterly growth of Net Non-Interest Income in Q3 2010 was primarily driven by the 26.5% q-o-q growth of Net Fee and Commission Income to GEL 13.7 million (up 14.0% y-o-y), in line with the increased lending and the overall increased business activity. The Bank’s Net Income from Documentary Operations grew 13.8% q-o-q to GEL 2.5 million (up 5.6% y-o-y), while Net Foreign Currency Related Income amounted to GEL 8.0 million, down 9.2% q-o-q and up 24.1% y-o-y.

Total Consolidated Recurring Operating Costs for the quarter increased by 6.7% q-o-q to GEL 51.0 million, (up 13.5% y-o-y), a result of increased Personnel Costs (up 3.9% q-o-q) and the growth of administrative expenses due to headcount expansion in Georgia and overall growth of business. NNOI for the quarter increased by 15.6% q-o-q to GEL 40.1 million (up 16.9% y-o-y), while Normalized Cost/Income ratio in Q3 2010 declined to 56.0% from the Normalized Cost/Income ratio of 57.9% in Q2 2010 and 61.0% in Q1 2010.

The Bank’s Consolidated Net Provision Expense for the quarter was GEL 14.2 million, up from Net Provision Expense of GEL 12.6 million in Q2 2010, with the increase largely attributed to the 95.1% increase of Net Provision Expense of BG Bank to GEL 3.8 million. Bank of Georgia’s Q3 2010 standalone Net Provision Expense of GEL 9.9 million increased from GEL 6.5 million in Q2 2010, when extraordinary reversals of provision charges have occurred.

In Q3 2010 Loan Loss Reserves of GEL 166.3 million amounted to 8.3% of consolidated gross loan book, a reduction from 9.0% in Q2 2010. Consolidated Net Loans increased by 4.0% q-o-q (up 24.2% y-o-y and up 22.8% YTD) to GEL 2,061.4 million. Consolidated NPLs of GEL 131.5 million declined considerably by 24.3% q-o-q, representing 5.9% of the consolidated gross loan book as of 30 September 2010, down from the same ratio of 8.0% in Q2 2010.

Client Deposits continued to grow during the quarter, resulting in the 11.5% q-o-q growth of the Bank’s Total Client Deposits to GEL 1,658.5 million as of 30 September 2010, a 30.3% increase from 31 December 2009 and a 40.3% increase since 30 September 2009.

JSC Bank of Georgia (standalone) results

Bank of Georgia on a standalone basis reported Q3 2010 Net Income of GEL 23.7 million, which compares to the standalone Net Income of GEL 24.4 million in Q2 2010 and GEL 10.8 million in Q3 2009. The slight decrease in Net Income in the third quarter is largely attributable to the q-o-q growth in standalone Net Provision Expenses, due to extraordinary reversal of provision charges in Q2 2010.

Interest Income growth during the quarter was driven by the healthy loan book growth of the past quarters, while interest expense continued to grow at a slower pace compared to the previous quarters, benefiting from the interest rate cuts on deposits in Georgia. On a year-on-year basis, the 17.9% increase of Net Interest Income was predominantly related to the increase in loan book since the beginning of 2010. In Q3 2010 Net Non-Interest Income amounted to GEL 22.5 million, up 8.1% q-o-q and up 32.3% y-o-y, with the growth driven by the 4.0% q-o-q increase of the Net Foreign Currency Related Income to GEL 8.1 million, the 13.5% q-o-q growth of Net Fees and Commission Income to GEL 11.4 million and a 14.1% q-o-q increase in Net Income from Documentary Operations. On a standalone basis, Bank of Georgia’s Total Recurring Operating Costs increased 7.4% q-o-q to GEL 34.9 million (up 16.0% y-o-y), primarily due to the increase of the Personnel Costs driven by the headcount increase to GEL 19.5 million, up 13.4% q-o-q (up 32.8% y-o-y) and the increase in operations support expenses attributed to the growth of business during the quarter. On a standalone basis, Bank of Georgia achieved positive operating leverage of 1.4% on a consecutive q-o-q basis and 3.6% on a y-o-y basis. The Bank’s Net Provision Expense on a standalone basis increased from GEL 6.5 million in Q2 2010 to GEL 9.9 million in Q3 2010.

Net Non-Interest Income increased by 19.9% y-o-y to GEL 60.0 million, with the increase driven by 20.2% y-o-y increase of Net Foreign Currency Related Income to GEL 21.6 million and 23.2% y-o-y increase in Net Fees and Commission Income to GEL 29.9 million. Net Income from Documentary Operations reached GEL 6.6 million, up 4.3% y-o-y. The Total Recurring Cost of Bank of Georgia on a standalone basis increased by 10.8% y-o-y, driven by a 18.0% increase of Personnel Costs on a y-o-y basis, a result of increased headcount in line with the increase in lending and overall business activity during the period. Net Provision Expense in nine months in 2010 reached GEL 28.7 million, compared to GEL 71.3 million Net Provision Expense in the nine months in 2009, resulting in YTD 2010 Standalone Net Income of GEL 60.9 million, up 164.7% y-o-y.

As of 30 September 2010, Bank of Georgia’s Total Assets on a standalone basis stood at GEL 3.5 billion, up 5.7% q-o-q, up 27.9% y-o-y and up 23.9% YTD. Gross loans increased 4.0% q-o-q (up 24.8% y-o-y and up 18.8% YTD) to GEL 2.1 billion driven by 2.3% q-o-q increase of the corporate gross loan book to GEL 1,038.9 million and 5.5% q-o-q growth of retail gross loan book to GEL 980.6 million.

Discussion of results

RB Revenues increased 13.0% q-o-q (up 10.6% y-o-y) to GEL 42.0 million, a result of the growth of all RB revenue items in Q3 2010. RB Net Interest Income increased by 11.5% q-o-q (up 3.8% y-o-y) to GEL 28.3 million, as RB Interest Income growth of 10.4% q-o-q to GEL 54.7 million more than offset the 9.2% q-o-q growth rate of RB Interest Expense to GEL 25.4 million in Q3 2010. RB Net Non-Interest Income during the quarter increased by 16.7% q-o-q (up 30.7% y-o-y) to GEL 12.6 million, mostly driven by 14.3% q-o-q increase of RB Net Fee and Commission Income to GEL 9.6 million (up 41.4%- y-o-y). RB Recurring Operating Costs increased by 9.4% q-o-q to GEL 23.0 million (up 12.6% y-o-y), translating into a positive operating leverage for the quarter. The improvement of the RB loan book quality as well as healthy loan recovery during the quarter, translated into a 78.4% q-o-q drop in RB Net Provision Expense to GEL 2.7 million. On a year-on-year basis, the Q3 2010 RB Net Provision Expense improved by 76.4%, reflecting the upturn of the overall operating environment during the year.

BG Capital also continued to solidify its position as the leading brokerage in the CIS frontier space. To address the weaker-than-expected volumes in the brokerage business, BG Capital’s management began taking steps to implement a cost optimization program.

Comment:

“During Q3 2010 we continued to experience a strong growth of our core business lines, extending more than GEL 517.4 million in new loans on a consolidated basis throughout the year. Our deposits grew 40.3% y-o-y to a record GEL 1,658.5 million and the loan book quality improved notably with the non-performing loans represent 5.9% of the gross loan book as of Q3 2010. Strong credit and deposit growth once again underlines strong recovery of the Georgian economy, which showed remarkable real GDP growth rate of 8.4% y-o-y in Q2 2010 and 6.6% y-o-y in the first half of 2010.

We continue to be firmly committed to working on our priorities going forward. We have moved our SME business from Corporate to Retail to take advantage of our retail infrastructure in order to penetrate this market segment currently dominated by our competitors. We continue targeting the Georgian mass-affluent retail segment through the already well-established sub-brand Solo and intend to further expand our wealth management business internationally. As the close-to-zero percent growth environment in the developed countries is likely to persist for some time, we will continue attracting more deposits internationally through our wealth management offices in Tel Aviv and London and open more offices elsewhere.

We are strongly positioned to benefit the most from the growing demand for retail and corporate credit in Georgia and we are keeping our unrelenting focus on our asset quality and efficiency as we embark upon the growth in 2011 and beyond,” commented Irakli Gilauri, Chief Executive Officer.
