Comment by Margus Rink, Chairman of the Management Board of Coop Pank:
"Despite the fact, that February was a shorter month than usual, the number and activity of our new customers increased rapidly. This shows that Coop Pank's customer offer appeals to both private and corporate customer and directs them to switch bank.
We can see that the increase in prices and Euribor has reduced the free money of consumers and companies, and the competition for deposits has grown strongly. Coop Pank has significantly raised deposit interest rates and currently offers up to 3.33% annual interest on local term deposits, in order to reduce the share of foreign deposits and offer the best price for Estonians' money.
Demand for new loans has clearly fallen in today's economic environment. Coop Pank's loan portfolio increased by 12 million euros in February, and home loans made up the largest part of this growth. The quality of Coop Pank's loan portfolio remains very good, and February's loan portfolio provisions were significantly below the long-term average level.
Coop Pank's net profit in February was 2.9 million euros, the return on equity was 24.6% and the cost-income ratio was 43%.”
