Net profit attributable to common shareholders increased by 21.4% to KZT 107.7bn for 3Q 2021 compared to KZT 88.7bn for 3Q 2020 as a result of the overall business growth across all segments.

 

 

Interest income for 3Q 2021 increased by 27.3% to KZT 229.7bn compared to KZT 180.5bn for 3Q 2020 mainly due to increase in average balances of loans to customers. Interest expense for 3Q 2021 increased by 3.4% to KZT 90.9bn compared to KZT 87.9bn for 3Q 2020 mainly due to the increase of average balance and share of KZT deposits in the amounts due to customers, which was partially offset by the decrease in interest expense on debt securities as a result of a redemption of Bank's high-yielding Eurobonds. Net interest margin increased to 5.3% p.a. for 9M 2021 and to 5.5% p.a. for 3Q 2021 compared to 4.8% p.a. for 9M 2020 and to 4.2% p.a. for 3Q 2020 mainly due to the improved structure of placement of interest-bearing liabilities into interest-earning assets and due to savings on coupon payments as a result of an early redemption of Bank's high-yielding Eurobonds.

 

Cost of risk on loans to customers in 3Q 2021 was at more normalized level of 0.9%.

 

Fee and commission income increased by 11.3% in comparison to 3Q 2020 mainly due to growing volumes of transactional banking, mainly in plastic card operations.

 

Fee and commission expense increased by 12.3% compared to 3Q 2020 mainly due to the increase in payment cards expenses as a result of growing volumes of transactional banking and non-cash transactions, partially offset by the decrease in deposit insurance fees payable to the Kazakhstan Deposit Insurance Fund due to lower rates for the Bank on the back of increase of capital adequacy ratios.

 

Other non-interest income (9) decreased by 58.3% to KZT 8.7bn for 3Q 2021 vs. KZT 21bn for 3Q 2020. In 1Q 2021, the Bank made full prepayment of its outstanding Eurobond issue which resulted in accelerated amortization of discount in the amount of KZT 5 bn being recognized in interest expenses. Additionally, the Bank recognized KZT 14 bn of amortization expenses in 3Q 2021. Moreover, due to the nature of the transaction, the Management of the Bank believes that the accelerated amortization of discount on Bank's Eurobonds relates to non-interest expenses, as in such way it provides more valuable information to the readers of the financial statements and enables them to identify a more consistent basis for comparing the Bank's performance between financial periods. Therefore, in 3Q 2021, the Bank recognized additional KZT 14 bn of amortization expenses in non-interest expenses, and reclassified previously recognized KZT 5 bn of amortization expenses from interest expenses to non-interest expenses. In total, these translates into KZT 19 bn of amortization expenses being recognized in non-interest expenses for 9M 2021..    

 

Net insurance income (10) for 3Q 2021 significantly increased vs. 3Q 2020 as a result of growth of unsecured lending program with a borrower's life insurance bundle.

 

Operating expenses (including loss from impairment of non-financial assets) for 3Q 2021 increased by 27.8% vs. 3Q 2020 mainly due to the indexation of salaries and other employee benefits starting from 1 March, 2021, increase in IT investments and increase in loyalty program bonuses payable to the customers.

 

The Bank's cost-to-income ratio decreased to 25.4% compared to 26.3% for 3Q 2020 due to higher operating income in 3Q 2021.

As at the end of 3Q 2021, total assets increased by 8.6% vs. YE 2020 due to growth in amounts due to customers, which was partially offset by the decrease in debt securities issued.

 

Compared with the end of YE 2020, loans to customers increased by 21.3% on a gross basis and 23.1% on a net basis. Increase of gross loan portfolio in 9M 2021 was attributable to increase in corporate loans by 17.5%, SME and retail loans increased by 16% and 32.2%, respectively.

 

As at the end of 3Q 2021, Stage 3 ratio (11) decreased to 9.8% from 10.4% as at the end of 2Q 2021 due to the growth of Stage 1 loans in the overall loan portfolio, while Stage 3 loans in absolute terms remained almost flat.
