“Strong performance during the quarter and for the year ended 31 December 2010 reflect the robust loan growth, the increased efficiency and improved asset quality that translated into the consolidated ROAE (EMI) of 16.2% in Q4 2010, an increase from the same ratio of 13.0% in Q3 2010 and the growth of consolidated EPS to GEL 0.82, up 23.3% q-o-q. The healthy revenue growth combined with cost containment measures resulted in the decline of consolidated Cost / Income Ratio normalized for the non-recurring items to 54.7% in Q4 2010 from 55.6% in Q3 2010, as the Bank kept its Recurring Cost growth in single digits for the full year. On a standalone basis Cost/Income Ratio dropped to 44.0% from 49.0% in Q3 2010. The Bank also benefited from the improved asset quality, lowering the cost of risk to 1.8% annual rate for the quarter.

On the balance sheet side, deposit growth accelerated in Q4 as client deposit growth of 21.3% q-o-q outpaced 13.3% growth of the gross loan book during the quarter. As a result, Interest Expense grew faster (6.3% q-o-q) than Interest Income (3.6% q-o-q), predominantly an effect of increased liquidity in the fourth quarter 2010 that drove the Q4 2010 NIM down to 7.8% from 8.2% in Q3 2010. Net Interest Income still increased by 1.1% q-o-q. The 0.5% decrease of Loan Yield Excluding Provisions to 19.5% during the quarter was mostly a result of the solid growth of the Bank’s net corporate loan book in Georgia, which at 21.9% q-o-q growth outpaced the 7.0% growth of higher yielding Retail net loan book. The strong growth of the deposit base in 2010 brought the Bank’s Net Loans to Client Deposits ratio to 117.8%, down from 131.9% in 2009”, commented Giorgi Chiladze, Deputy Chief Executive Officer, Finance.

Discussion of results

In Q4 2010, RB Revenues increased 11.5% q-o-q (up 21.0% y-o-y) to GEL 46.8 million, driven predominantly by the 15.7% q-o-q and 15.0% y-o-y growth of RB Net Interest Income increased to GEL 33.9 million. RB Interest Income growth rate of 9.5% q-o-q to GEL 59.9 million outpaced the 2.3% q-o-q growth rate of RB Interest Expense to GEL 25.9 million as result of the increase of RB Loan Book during the year and the effect of the deposit rate cuts in 2010. On a quarterly basis, RB Interest Income increased despite Christmas promotion campaigns by competitors entailing interest rate cuts on retail loans. RB Loan Yield Excluding Provisions grew 22.6% in Q3 2010 to 23.4% in Q4 2010. RB Net Non-Interest Income during the quarter increased by 1.9% q-o-q (up 40.2% y-o-y) to GEL 12.9 million, mostly driven by 2.1% q-o-q increase of RB Net Fee and Commission Income to GEL 9.8 million (up 37.3%- y-o-y).

Despite the RB Revenue growth for past three consecutive quarters in 2010, the full year 2010 RB Revenues of GEL 158.8 million fell short by 1.0% of RB Revenues in 2009, due to 7.0% lower 2010 Net Interest Income (GEL 113.2 million) compared to the prior year. RB Net Non-Interest Income grew 18.0% y-o-y to GEL 45.6 million, driven by 25.4% y-o-y growth of Net Fee and Commission income to GEL 35.2 million and 9.0% y-o-y growth of Net Other Non-Interest Income to GEL 1.1 million. Full year 2010 RB Recurring Operating Costs grew by 5.3% y-o-y to GEL 87.1 million, leading to the 8.2% y-o-y decrease of RB Profit Before Provisions to GEL 68.4 million.

Comment:

“Bank of Georgia grew at much faster pace than banking sector in Georgia due to its strong franchise and solid balance sheet. In Georgia, we have achieved 37.1% growth in loans and 60.5% growth in client deposits, which translated into 4.1% market share gain in loans and 3.9% market share gain in client deposits, bringing our market shares at all time record high level of 35.9% in Loans and 32.2% in deposits.

We also achieved positive operating leverage (both consolidated and standalone) for the third consecutive quarter, which serves as a continued evidence that we are successfully implementing our strategy of growth at the right price with strong emphasis on efficiency. Q4 2010 standalone Operating Leverage stood at 31.1% on a year-on-year basis, which improved efficiency both on consolidated and standalone basis, bringing standalone cost income ratio to 44.0% in Q4 2010, translating into the consolidated 16.2% ROAE (EMI) in Q4 2010.

Having successfully executed our strategy for the year, we beat the 2010 Net Income target of GEL 72.3 million announced in November 2009 by 14.7%, posting 2010 Net Income of GEL 82.9 million. Additionally, I am pleased to note that Aldagi BCI, the Bank’s key wholly-owned subsidiary also performed well, delivering strong quarterly and full year results and increasing its contribution to the Bank’s Net Income for the quarter and for the full year.

The expected real GDP growth in 2010 is at 6.5%, and in 2011 we expect the continued growth as we are observing improving economic environment in Georgia. Bank of Georgia is well positioned to capture this growth and to achieve its target of 20% Return on Average Equity in coming years,” commented Irakli Gilauri, Chief Executive Officer.
