  5. including loss from impairment of non-financial assets of KZT 31.5bn
  6. including loss from impairment of non-financial assets of KZT 1.2bn

 

 

Net income increased by 53.3% to KZT 251.4bn for 9M 2019 compared to KZT 164.0bn for 9M 2018 mainly due to net interest income growth in 9M 2019. For 9M 2018 the Bank had higher loss from impairment of non-financial assets of KZT 31.5 bn compared to nil for 9M 2019, and in 2Q 2018 there was a de-recognition of tax loss carry forward of KZT 43.3bn by Kazkommertsbank's (KKB)  due to the merger into Halyk Bank.
 

Interest income increased by 5.7% to KZT 531.4bn for 9M 2019 compared to KZT 502.6bn for 9M 2018 mainly as a result of increase in average balances of interest-earning assets by 10.3%. Interest expense for 9M 2019 decreased by 5.7% compared to 9M 2018 mainly due to continuous repricing of retail term deposits following the decrease of deposit interest rate cap by Kazakhstan Deposit Insurance Fund.  As  a result of net interest income growth, Net interest margin increased to 5.2% p.a. for 9M 2019 compared to 4.9% p.a. in 9M 2018, despite the negative effect from accelerated amortisation of discount on the Bank's Eurobonds in the amount of KZT 7.4bn due to its early partial prepayment on 1 March 2019.

 

Cost of risk on loans to customers for 9M 2019 was at 0.6% due to one-off repayments of large ticket problem loans in 2Q 2019, while cost of risk on loans to customers for 3Q 2019 was at a more   normalized level of 0.8%. 

 

Fee and commission income* for 9M 2019 increased by 7.2% p.a. vs. 9M 2018 as a result of growing volumes of transactional banking, mainly in payment cards operations, as well as letters of credit and  guarantees issued.

Prior to the merger, the transfers within legal entities' current accounts in Halyk and KKB were treated as external transfers and relevant fees were applied. After the integration, the transfers between those current accounts are being treated as internal and therefore are free of charge. As a result, fees derived from Bank transfers - settlements decreased in 9M 2019 vs. 9M 2018. The decrease in fees derived from cash operations in 9M 2019 vs. 9M 2018 was mainly due to increased volumes of non-cash transactions. 

 

Fee and commission expense increased by 39.6% compared to 9M 2018 mainly due to increased number of transactions of other banks' cards in the acquiring network of the Bank.

 

Operating income increased by 5.5% vs. 9M 2018 mainly due to increase in net interest income.

 

Operating expenses for 9M 2019 decreased by 27.5% vs. 9M 2018 mainly due to loss from impairment of non-financial assets of KZT 28.5bn in 2Q 2018 and cost optimisation on the back of synergy effect from merger of KKB into the Bank.


On the back of lower operating expenses and higher operating income for 9M 2019 vs. 9M 2018, the Bank's cost-to-income ratio decreased to 23.2% compared to 33.8% for 9M 2018.

 

 

* Starting from 1Q 2019 the portion of fees relating to payment card operations, which was previously accounted within cash operations and bank transfers, are represented as fees derived from payment card operations. Figures for 3Q 2018 were recalculated accordingly.

In 3Q 2019, total assets increased by 0.4% vs. YE 2018 mainly due to increase in loans from Kazakhstan banks under REPO agreements and decreased by 0.7% vs. 2Q 2019 mainly as a result of loans and deposits from Kazakhstan banks (including loans under REPO agreements).  
 
Compared with the 2Q 2019, loans to customers increased by 2.1% on a gross basis and 2.1% on a net basis. Increase of gross loan portfolio in 3Q 2019 was attributable to increase in corporate loans (0.8% on a gross basis), increase in SME loans (4.3% on a gross basis), and increase in retail loans (3.9% on a gross basis).
 
As at the end of 3Q 2019, Stage 3 ratio decreased to 17.9% from 18.6% as at the end of 2Q 2019 mainly as a result of repayments of previously impaired indebtedness of corporate and retail borrowers.
 

Deposits of legal entities and individuals decreased by 3.5% and 6.7%, respectively, compared to YE 2018 mainly due to partial withdrawal of funds by the Bank's customers to finance their ongoing needs, including the repayment of external debt obligations of national companies, and transfer of a part of FX retail deposits into USD-denominated bonds placed at Astana International Exchange. As at 30 September 2019, the share of corporate KZT deposits in total corporate deposits was 49.6% compared to 55.8% as at 30 June 2019, whereas the share of retail KZT deposits in total retail deposits was 42.2% compared to 41.8% as at the end of 2Q 2019.

 

Amounts due to credit institutions decreased by 29.3% vs. 2Q 2019 mainly due to decrease in loans and deposits from Kazakhstan banks (including loans under REPO agreements) attracted for placement at higher rates. As at 30 September 2019, 90.0% of the Bank's obligations to financial institutions were represented by loans from Kazakhstan banks (incl. loans under REPO agreements), KazAgro national managing holding, DAMU development fund, Development Bank of Kazakhstan drawn in 2014-2017 within the framework of government programmes supporting certain sectors of economy.
