Margus Rink, Chairman of the Management Board of Coop Pank, comments the results:

“The most significant result of the last quarter for Coop Pank was crossing the milestone of 100,000 customers. This was one of the five strategic goals we promised investors when we came to the stock market, and we fulfilled it a lot faster than expected. Over the past year, our customer base has grown more than by one third and there are more and more customers who name Coop Pank as their home bank.

The growth of the customer base has led to a significant increase in the volume of domestic deposits and enabled us to reduce the share of more expensive deposits attracted from the
international deposit platform. The increase in the share of demand deposits also contributes to the decrease in financing costs.

The growth of the loan portfolio, which slowed down in the first quarter due to the market cool down, picked up again and showed a good result in the second quarter of the year. This was mainly driven by business loans and home loans. Although competition in the loan market has increased over the year, we see that our positioning allows us to increase our market share. We are also glad to see that, with rapid growth, the quality of our loan portfolio remains at a very high level.

An increase in the number of customers, a decrease in financing costs and an increase in the loan portfolio is improving our performance from month to month. In the second quarter, we earned a decent profit and return on equity (ROE) continued to grow. At the end of the second quarter, Coop Pank was on Tallinn Stock Exchange with more than 18,000 shareholders on the second place.”
