Sberbank reports 3Q 2019 financial results under International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS)
 

Moscow, October 31, 2019 - Sberbank (hereafter "the Group") has released its interim condensed IFRS financial statements (hereafter "the Financial Statements") as at and for the 9 months ended 30 September 2019, with report on review by AO PricewaterhouseCoopers Audit. All information is presented net of Denizbank A.S. operations, unless stated otherwise.

 

Alexander Morozov, Deputy Chairman of the Executive Board, CFO, commented: «The Bank earned RUB230 bn net profit from continuing operations in 3Q 2019. Given the effect from the Denizbank sale the Group net profit was RUB156.1 bn. The deal resulted in a 123 bp increase in the CET 1 capital adequacy ratio. This quarter showed a turnaround in the corporate loan portfolio dynamics and substantial acceleration of net fee and commission income. It's also important to note the growth in frequency of usage of Sberbank's digital services through mobile application, thus the engagement increased to 41.4% DAU/MAU. The solid performance in all key strategic areas allows us to confirm our ROE guidance at the targeted level of over 20%."

 

The 3Q 2019 Financial Highlights:

  • The Group net profit from continuing operations was RUB230.8 bn (+6.3% y/y) in 3Q 2019 and RUB702.8 bn in 9M 2019 (+8.0% y/y). The quarterly results were affected by the recognition of loss  from Denizbank sale in the amount of RUB73.3 bn, mostly associated with recycling of the foreign currency translation reserve booked in Equity through the Statement of Profit or Loss, as well as the income tax paid under Russian accounting standards (RAS).

  • The Group earnings per ordinary share (EPS) based on profit from continuing operations came at RUB10.72 per share, up by 6.2% compared to 3Q 2018, while the earnings per ordinary share (EPS) including the effect from Denizbank sale were RUB7.25, down by 31.6% y/y.
  • The Group annualized return on equity (ROE) based on profit from continuing operations was 22.4%, while annualized return on equity (ROE) including the effect from Denizbank sale came at 15.2%.

The Group's total capital under Basel III reached RUB4 273.3 bn as of 30/09/2019, up by 6.7% as compared to previous quarter.

The Group's risk-weighted assets were down by 2.8% to RUB30 791.8 bn during 3Q 2019 mainly due to the Denizbank sale. The Group leverage ratio increased by 150 bp to 13.0% in 3Q 2019.

Starting from 3Q 2019 the Group synchronized calculation methodologies for risk-weighted assets in terms of the credit risk for IFRS capital adequacy ratio (Basel III) with the macro-prudential requirements of the Central Bank of Russia (CBR):

  • CBR's macro-prudential add-ons to risk weights for some segments of assets both for standardized and IRB approaches;
  • introduction of other national risk weights adjustments.

These changes reduced CET 1 capital adequacy ratio by 35 bp.

As a result, both common equity Tier 1 capital adequacy ratio and total capital adequacy ratio increased by 124 bp each to 13.53% and 13.88% correspondingly as of 30/09/2019.
