Net profit attributable to common shareholders increased by 19.4% to KZT 96.8bn for 1Q 2021 compared to KZT 81.1bn for 1Q 2020 mainly due to increase in net insurance income, net fee and commission income and decrease in credit loss expense.

 

Interest income for 1Q 2021 increased by 8.0% to KZT 193.6bn compared to KZT 179.3bn for 1Q 2020 mainly due to increase in average balances of loans to customers. Interest expense for 1Q 2021 increased by 14.4% to KZT 86.1bn compared to KZT 75.3bn for 1Q 2020 mainly due to the increase of average balance and share of KZT deposits in the amounts due to customers and due to accelerated amortisation of discount on Bank's Eurobonds in the amount of KZT 5bn due to its full prepayment on 1 March 2021. Net interest margin decreased to 4.7% p.a. for 1Q 2021 compared to 5.3% p.a. for 1Q 2020 mainly due to transfers in placement from high-yielding NBRK notes into low-yielding FX deposit with NBRK following the repayment of SWAP agreement and due to accelerated amortisation of discount on Bank's Eurobonds in the amount of KZT 5bn due to its full prepayment on 1 March 2021.

 

Cost of risk on loans to customers for 1Q 2021 was at 0.4% reflecting normalization of post-COVID performance along with repayments of problem loans. 90-day NPL ratio increased to 4.4% from 4.1% as at the end of 2020 mainly due to migration of previously impaired corporate loans to NPL.

 

Fee and commission income for 1Q 2021 increased by 9.4% vs. 1Q 2020 as a result of growing volumes of transactional banking, mainly in plastic card operations, as well as bank transfers - settlements.

 

The decrease in fee and commission expense Y-o-Y was mainly due to 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, partially offset by the increase in payment cards expenses as a result of increased number of transactions of other banks' cards in the acquiring network of the Bank.

 

Other non-interest income (7) decreased by 38.0% to KZT 21.8bn for 1Q 2021 vs. KZT 35.2bn for 1Q 2020 due to higher net gain from derivative operations and securities in 1Q 2020 affected by the SWAP agreement with NBRK for the amount of USD 912 mln, which was fully repaid in July 2020.

 

Net insurance income (8) for 1Q 2021 significantly increased vs. 1Q 2020 as a result of new unsecured lending program with a borrower's life insurance bundle.

 

Operating expenses (including loss from impairment of non-financial assets) for 1Q 2021 increased by 7.3% vs. 1Q 2020 mainly due to the indexation of salaries and other employee benefits starting from 1 March, 2021.

 

The Bank's cost-to-income ratio increased to 24.4% compared to 23.8% for 1Q 2020 due to higher operating expenses for 1Q 2021
