RBI: First Quarter Report 2018

- Consolidated profit of EUR 399 mn (up 81% year-on-year) driven by strong positive contribution from risk costs

- Exceptionally high net releases of loan loss provisions led to positive impairment losses on financial assets (risk costs). Despite the positive result, risk costs for 2018 are expected to be around the level of the previous year

- NPL ratio decreased further to 5.4%

- NIM stable at 2.49%, with improvements in Czech Republic and Romania

- IFRS 9 impact on equity of EUR 130 mn; minus 10 bps on CET1 ratio (fully loaded)

- CET1 ratio at 12.8% (fully loaded, incl. YTD results and IFRS 9 impact)

- Disposal of core banking assets in Poland, with expected positive impact of 90 bps on Group CET1 ratio (fully loaded) on closing

We will pursue loan growth with an average yearly percentage increase in the mid-single digit area.
Impairment losses on financial assets (risk costs) in 2018 are expected to be around the 2017 level.
We anticipate that the NPL ratio will further reduce in the medium term.
We aim to achieve a cost/income ratio of below 55 per cent in the medium term.
We target a consolidated return on equity of approximately 11 per cent in the medium term.
We target a CET1 ratio (fully loaded) of around 13 per cent post dividend in the medium term.
Based on this target, we intend to distribute between 20 and 50 per cent (dividend payout ratio) of the consolidated profit.

The targets in this outlook include the impact from IFRS 9 and FINREP; the sale of the core banking operations in Poland is not reflected.
