Statement on Tinkoff Bank's RAS Financial Highlights for January - December 2019
Moscow, Russia - 04 February 2020. TCS Group Holding PLC (LI: TCS, MOEX: TCSG) (the "Group"), Russia's leading provider of online financial and lifestyle services via its Tinkoff ecosystem, today announces Tinkoff Bank's unaudited RAS financial highlights for January - December 2019.
For the twelve months of 2019, net income stood at RUB 27.5bn versus RUB 17bn in January-December 2018, which is attributed to growth of net interest income, stable cost of funding, good quality of the loan portfolio and growth of revenue from new business lines.
It should be noted that the RAS net income figure is not a reliable indicator of IFRS net income for the same period. There is a very low correlation between financial results under the two reporting standards as a result of significant accounting differences. Therefore, RAS figures should not be used as the basis for conclusions on forthcoming IFRS results.
The gross loan portfolio amounted to RUB 371bn representing an increase of 50% y-o-y. The net loan portfolio amounted to RUB 318bn having increased by 54% y-o-y and constituted 57% of total assets (53% at year-end 2018).
Retail customer accounts stood at RUB 349bn. Tinkoff Bank continued to retain substantial liquidity: the CBR N2 ratio stood at 77% (minimum requirement: 15%), and the CBR N3 ratio was 146% (minimum requirement: 50%). Retail customer accounts constituted 74% of total liabilities.
Total assets increased by 43% y-o-y to RUB 554bn.
As of 1 January 2020, total capital including retained profits (based on Form 123) amounted to RUB 99.8bn. The CBR N1 capital adequacy ratio was 12.12%. Core Capital Adequacy Ratio (N1.1) was 9.48% and Main Capital Adequacy Ratio (N1.2) was 11.74%.
Note on RAS results
Please note that the figures in this press release are calculated in accordance with Tinkoff Bank's internal methodology which is available at:
RAS results are not a reliable indicator of IFRS results due to significant accounting differences that make a direct read-across from RAS to IFRS results impossible. The main differences between RAS and IFRS are:
- Consolidated results under IFRS include a number of additional items and results of its subsidiaries
- Accrual of expenses under IFRS
- Timing differences in accounting for restructured loans ('instalments') and loans going through courts
- The effect from the revaluation of currency derivative instruments
- The effect of deferred income tax.
