Fréderic Oudéa, the Group’s Chief Executive Officer, commented:

“In an increasingly complex geopolitical and economic environment, Societe Generale posts, once again, excellent results, with both a very solid commercial performance and profitability. The third quarter is marked by increasing revenues, continued control of operating expenses and a contained cost of risk, while maintaining a prudent provisioning policy. We continue to make good progress on the execution of our strategic initiatives, with several major milestones achieved, notably on the merger of the retail banking networks in France and the finalisation of the partnership between Boursorama and ING. Furthermore, on September 30th, the Board of Directors decided that at the next General Meeting it would propose Slawomir Krupa as Board member to be my successor as Chief Executive Officer of the Group in May 2023. The coming months will enable us to continue to implement the strategic initiatives underway, which would ensure sustainable growth and profitability, while together ensuring an effective and orderly transition.”

Societe Generale’s Board of Directors, which met on November 3rd, 2022 under the chairmanship of Lorenzo Bini Smaghi, examined the Societe Generale Group’s results for Q3 and 9M 2022.

The various restatements enabling the transition from underlying data to published data are presented in the methodology notes (section 10.5).

Net banking income
Net banking income continued to enjoy good momentum despite a more uncertain economic environment, with growth of +2.3% (+3.7%*) in Q3 22 vs. Q3 21.

French Retail Banking was resilient (+0.5% vs. Q3 21). Net banking income showed a healthy momentum on service fees and in private banking.

International Retail Banking & Financial Services’ revenues rose +5.6% (+13.5%*) vs. Q3 21, driven by a very good quarter for ALD and International Retail Banking. The latter saw its activities grow +13.0%* vs. Q3 21. Financial Services’ net banking income was substantially higher (+19.0%* vs. Q3 21) while Insurance net banking income increased by +2.1%* vs. Q3 21.

Global Banking & Investor Solutions continued to enjoy dynamic growth, with revenues up +6.4% (+3.9%*) vs. Q3 21. Global Markets & Investor Services was higher (+11.2%, 5.2%*) than in Q3 21 while Financing & Advisory activities increased by +7.0% (+1.5%*) vs. Q3 21.

In 9M 22, the Group posted robust revenue growth of +10.4% (+10.9%*) vs. 9M 21, with growth in all the businesses.

Operating expenses
In Q3 22, operating expenses totalled EUR 4,233 million on a reported basis and EUR 4,358 million on an underlying basis (restated for transformation costs and the linearisation of IFRIC 21), an increase of +2.0% vs. Q3 21.

In 9M 22, underlying operating expenses were up +5.4% vs. 9M 21 at EUR 13,273 million
(EUR 14,020 million on a reported basis). This rise can be explained primarily by the higher contribution to the Single Resolution Fund (EUR +208 million), the increase in the variable elements of employee remuneration including the Global Employee Share Ownership Plan (EUR +142 million) and currency effects (EUR +165 million). Excluding these variable elements, the increase in other expenses was limited at EUR 164 million vs. 9M 21 (+1.3%).

Overall, underlying gross operating income increased by 2.9% in Q3 22 to EUR 2,470 million and the underlying cost to income ratio, excluding the Single Resolution Fund, decreased to 60.7%.

In 9M 22, underlying gross operating income was substantially higher (+20.0% vs. 9M 21) at
EUR 7,901 million.

Cost of risk

The cost of risk remained contained at 31 basis points in Q3 22, or EUR 456 million. It breaks down into a provision on non-performing loans which remains limited at EUR 154 million (~10 basis points), and an additional provision on performing loans of EUR 302 million (21 basis points).

In 9M 2022, the cost of risk amounted to 29 basis points.

Offshore exposure to Russia was reduced to EUR 2.3 billion of EAD (Exposure At Default) at September 30th, 2022. Exposure at risk on this portfolio is estimated at less than EUR 1 billion. The total associated provisions were EUR 452 million at end-September 2022.

Moreover, at end-September 2022, the Group’s residual exposure in relation to Rosbank amounted to around EUR 0.1 billion, corresponding mainly to guarantees and letters of credit that were recognised under intra-group exposure before the disposal of Rosbank.

The Group’s provisions on performing loans amounted to EUR 3,754 million at end-September, an increase of EUR 399 million in 2022.

The non-performing loans ratio amounted to 2.7%(2) at September 30th, 2022, down ~10 basis points vs. June 30th, 2022. The Group’s gross coverage ratio for doubtful outstandings was stable at 50%(3) at September 30th, 2022.

The cost of risk is still expected to be between 30 and 35 basis points in 2022.

International Retail Banking’s outstanding loans totalled EUR 86.7 billion, up +6.2%* vs. Q3 21. Outstanding deposits were slightly higher (+0.8%*) than in Q3 21, at EUR 80.9 billion.

For the Europe scope, outstanding loans were up +5.9%* vs. end-September 2021 at EUR 62.7 billion, driven by a positive momentum in the Czech Republic (+9.1%*) and in Romania (+8.6%*). Outstanding deposits declined -1.7%* to EUR 54.3 billion. The good momentum in Romania and Western Europe was offset by a slowdown in the Czech Republic notably due to a shift towards financial savings.

In Africa, Mediterranean Basin and French Overseas Territories, outstanding loans confirmed their rebound, with an increase of +7.0%*. Outstanding deposits continued to enjoy a good momentum, up +6.2%*.

In the Insurance business, life insurance outstandings totalled EUR 130 billion at end-September 2022.  The share of unit-linked products in outstandings was still high at 35%, stable vs. September 2021. Gross life insurance savings inflow amounted to EUR 2,573 million in Q3 22 in a highly volatile market. The share of unit-linked products remained high at 39% in Q3 22.

Equipment Finance outstanding loans were slightly higher (+0.5%) than at end-September 2021, at EUR 14.5 billion (excluding factoring).

International Retail Banking’s net banking income totalled EUR 1,260 million in Q3 22, up +13.0%*. International Retail Banking’s net banking income totalled EUR 3,873 million in 9M 22, up +12.6%* vs. 9M 21.

Revenues in Europe climbed +14.5%* vs. Q3 21, due primarily to substantial growth in net interest income (+16.2%* vs. Q3 21), driven by the Czech Republic (+41.1%* vs. Q3 21) and Romania (+20.1%* vs. Q3 21).

The Africa, Mediterranean Basin and French Overseas Territories scope posted revenues up +10.5%* vs. Q3 21 at EUR 485 million, driven by all the entities.

The Insurance business posted net banking income up +2.1%* vs. Q3 21, at EUR 247 million. The Insurance business’ net banking income was 5.1%* higher in 9M 22 than in 9M 21 at EUR 749 million.

Financial Services’ net banking income was substantially higher (+19.0%*) than in Q3 21, at EUR 719 million. This performance is due primarily at ALD level to a good commercial momentum, a strong used car sale result (EUR 3,149 per vehicle in 9M 22), a depreciation adjustment and, to a lesser extent, the transfer to hyperinflation accounting for activities in Turkey. Financial Services’ net banking income totalled EUR 2,131 million in 9M 22, up +35.0%* vs. 9M 21.

Operating expenses
Operating expenses increased by +11.1%*(1) vs. Q3 21 to EUR 1,037 million(1), resulting in a positive jaws effect. The cost to income ratio (after linearisation of the IFRIC 21 charge) stood at 46.6%(1) in Q3 22, lower than in Q3 21 (49.3%(1)). Operating expenses totalled EUR 3,203 million(1) in 9M 22, up +9.3%*(1) vs. 9M 21.

In International Retail Banking, operating expenses were up +6.2%*(1) vs. Q3 21.

In the Insurance business, operating expenses rose +5.7%*(1) vs. Q3 21, with a cost to income ratio (after linearisation of the IFRIC 21 charge) of 38.7%(1).

In Financial Services, operating expenses increased by +26.9%*(1) vs. Q3 21. This rise is due in particular to the recognition in Q3 22 of charges related to the preparation of the acquisition of Leaseplan.

Cost of risk

In Q3 22, the cost of risk was higher at 47 basis points (EUR 150 million), vs. 43 basis points in Q3 21.

On 9M 22, the cost of risk amounted to 56 basis points (EUR 572 million). It was 41 basis points in 9M 21.

Contribution to Group net income

The contribution to Group net income totalled EUR 606 million(1) in Q3 22, up +12.8%*(1) vs. Q3 21. The contribution to Group net income totalled EUR 1,736 million(1) in 9M 22 (+29.4%*(1) vs. 9M 21).

Underlying RONE stood at 23.1% in Q3 22 and 21.7% in 9M 22. Underlying RONE was 18.4% in International Retail Banking and 28.0% in Financial Services and Insurance in Q3 22.

Net banking income

Global Banking & Investor Solutions delivered a very solid performance in Q3, with revenues of
EUR 2,312 million, up +6.4% vs. Q3 21.

Revenues increased substantially in 9M 22, +14.4% vs. 9M 21 (EUR 7,630 million vs. EUR 6,671 million).

In Global Markets & Investor Services, net banking income totalled EUR 1,505 million in Q3 22 (+11.2% vs.  Q3 21). It amounted to EUR 5,212 million in 9M 22, +18.6% vs. 9M 21.

Global Markets turned in a strong performance in Q3 22 (EUR 1,344 million), up +12.1% vs. Q3 21, benefiting from dynamic commercial activity in a still volatile environment. Revenues were higher in 9M 22 (+18.8%) than in 9M 21 at EUR 4,637 million.

The Equity activity delivered a solid performance in Q3 (EUR 806 million, +1.0% vs. Q3 21), driven by a sustained high client demand in both flow activities and investment solutions. Revenues were up +9.6% in 9M 22 vs. 9M 21 at EUR 2,649 million.

Fixed Income & Currency activities posted substantially higher revenues (+34.2% vs. Q3 21) at
EUR 538 million in a volatile rate environment. Revenues increased to EUR 1,988 million in 9M 22 (+33.8% vs. 9M 21).

Securities Services saw its revenues increase +3.9% vs. Q3 21, to EUR 161 million. Revenues were up +17.3% in 9M 22 vs. 9M 21 at EUR 575 million. Securities Services’ assets under custody and assets under administration amounted to EUR 4,275 billion and EUR 598 billion respectively.

The Global Banking & Advisory business, slightly lower (-1.4% vs. Q3 21), continued to capitalise on the good market momentum in Asset Finance and activities related to Natural Resources. These performances were also driven by the strategy focused on Environmental, Social and Governance criteria. The Asset-Backed Products platform also showed good resilience in Q3. In contrast, Investment Banking was negatively impacted by current market conditions and the decline in volumes.

Global Transaction and Payment Services continued to experience very high growth, up +50.0% vs.  Q3 21. It was a record quarter as a result of a very good performance in all activities, particularly Cash Management and Correspondent Banking.

Operating expenses

Operating expenses totalled EUR 1,428 million in Q3 22, -2.0% lower than in Q3 21 on a reported basis, and slightly higher (+2.2%) on an underlying basis. The increase on an underlying basis can be explained primarily by the rise of EUR 64 million in linearised IFRIC 21 charges in Q3.

With a positive jaws effect, the underlying cost to income ratio excluding the contribution to the Single Resolution Fund improved to 63.0%.

Operating expenses were up +6.5% on a reported basis and +5.3% on an underlying basis in
9M 22.

Cost of risk

The cost of risk amounted to 17 basis points (or EUR 80 million) in Q3 22, with cost of risk amounting to EUR 43 million on the Russian offshore portfolio.

The contribution to Group net income was EUR 629 million on a reported basis (+15.6% vs. Q3 21) and EUR 486 million on an underlying basis in Q3 22. It was EUR 1,673 million on a reported basis and EUR 1,816 million on an underlying basis in 9M 22.

Global Banking & Investor Solutions posted an underlying RONE of 12.9% in Q3 22 and 16.1% excluding the contribution to the Single Resolution Fund (vs. 14.6% in Q3 21). The underlying RONE was 16.6% in 9M 22 vs. 14.4% in 9M 21.

The Alternative Performance Measures, notably the notions of net banking income for the pillars, operating expenses, IFRIC 21 adjustment, cost of risk in basis points, ROE, ROTE, RONE, net assets, tangible net assets, and the amounts serving as a basis for the different restatements carried out (in particular the transition from published data to underlying data) are presented in the methodology notes, as are the principles for the presentation of prudential ratios.

 

This document contains forward-looking statements relating to the targets and strategies of the Societe Generale Group.
These forward-looking statements are based on a series of assumptions, both general and specific, in particular the application of accounting principles and methods in accordance with IFRS (International Financial Reporting Standards) as adopted in the European Union, as well as the application of existing prudential regulations.

 

These forward-looking statements have also been developed from scenarios based on a number of economic assumptions in the context of a given competitive and regulatory environment. The Group may be unable to:
-  anticipate all the risks, uncertainties or other factors likely to affect its business and to appraise their potential consequences;
-  evaluate the extent to which the occurrence of a risk or a combination of risks could cause actual results to differ materially from those provided in this document and the related presentation.

 

Therefore, although Societe Generale believes that these statements are based on reasonable assumptions, these forward-looking statements are subject to numerous risks and uncertainties, including matters not yet known to it or its management or not currently considered material, and there can be no assurance that anticipated events will occur or that the objectives set out will actually be achieved. Important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from the results anticipated in the forward-looking statements include, among others, overall trends in general economic activity and in Societe Generale’s markets in particular, regulatory and prudential changes, and the success of Societe Generale’s strategic, operating and financial initiatives.

 

More detailed information on the potential risks that could affect Societe Generale’s financial results can be found in the section “Risk Factors” in our Universal Registration Document filed with the French Autorité des Marchés Financiers (which is available on https://investors.societegenerale.com/en).

 

Investors are advised to take into account factors of uncertainty and risk likely to impact the operations of the Group when considering the information contained in such forward-looking statements. Other than as required by applicable law, Societe Generale does not undertake any obligation to update or revise any forward-looking information or statements. Unless otherwise specified, the sources for the business rankings and market positions are internal.

  1. APPENDIX 2: METHODOLOGY

1 –The financial information presented for the third quarter and the first nine months of 2022 was examined by the Board of Directors on November 3rd, 2022 and has been prepared in accordance with IFRS as adopted in the European Union and applicable at that date. This information has not been audited.

2 - Net banking income

The pillars’ net banking income is defined on page 41 of Societe Generale’s 2022 Universal Registration Document. The terms “Revenues” or “Net Banking Income” are used interchangeably. They provide a normalised measure of each pillar’s net banking income taking into account the normative capital mobilised for its activity.

3 - Operating expenses

Operating expenses correspond to the “Operating Expenses” as presented in note 8.1 to the Group’s consolidated financial statements as at December 31st, 2021 (pages 482 et seq. of Societe Generale’s 2022 Universal Registration Document). The term “costs” is also used to refer to Operating Expenses. The Cost/Income Ratio is defined on page 41 of Societe Generale’s 2022 Universal Registration Document.

4 - IFRIC 21 adjustment

The IFRIC 21 adjustment corrects the result of the charges recognised in the accounts in their entirety when they are due (generating event) so as to recognise only the portion relating to the current quarter, i.e. a quarter of the total. It consists in smoothing the charge recognised accordingly over the financial year in order to provide a more economic idea of the costs actually attributable to the activity over the period analysed.

The contributions to Single Resolution Fund (« SRF ») are part of IFRIC21 adjusted charges, they include contributions to national resolution funds within the EU.


5 – Exceptional items – Transition from accounting data to underlying data

It may be necessary for the Group to present underlying indicators in order to facilitate the understanding of its actual performance. The transition from published data to underlying data is obtained by restating published data for exceptional items and the IFRIC 21 adjustment.

Moreover, the Group restates the revenues and earnings of the French Retail Banking pillar for PEL/CEL provision allocations or write-backs. This adjustment makes it easier to identify the revenues and earnings relating to the pillar’s activity, by excluding the volatile component related to commitments specific to regulated savings.

The reconciliation enabling the transition from published accounting data to underlying data is set out in the table below:

6 - Cost of risk in basis points, coverage ratio for doubtful outstandings

The cost of risk is defined on pages 43 and 663 of Societe Generale’s 2022 Universal Registration Document. This indicator makes it possible to assess the level of risk of each of the pillars as a percentage of balance sheet loan commitments, including operating leases.

The gross coverage ratio for doubtful outstandings is calculated as the ratio of provisions recognised in respect of the credit risk to gross outstandings identified as in default within the meaning of the regulations, without taking account of any guarantees provided. This coverage ratio measures the maximum residual risk associated with outstandings in default (“doubtful”).

7 - ROE, ROTE, RONE

The notions of ROE (Return on Equity) and ROTE (Return on Tangible Equity), as well as their calculation methodology, are specified on page 43 and 44 of Societe Generale’s 2022 Universal Registration Document. This measure makes it possible to assess Societe Generale’s return on equity and return on tangible equity.

RONE (Return on Normative Equity) determines the return on average normative equity allocated to the Group’s businesses, according to the principles presented on page 44 of Societe Generale’s 2022 Universal Registration Document.

Group net income used for the ratio numerator is book Group net income adjusted for “interest net of tax payable on deeply subordinated notes and undated subordinated notes, interest paid to holders of deeply subordinated notes and undated subordinated notes, issue premium amortisations” and “unrealised gains/losses booked under shareholders’ equity, excluding conversion reserves”. For ROTE, income is also restated for goodwill impairment.

Details of the corrections made to book equity in order to calculate ROE and ROTE for the period are given in the table below:

9 - Calculation of Earnings Per Share (EPS)

The EPS published by Societe Generale is calculated according to the rules defined by the IAS 33 standard (see page 45 of Societe Generale’s 2022 Universal Registration Document). The corrections made to Group net income in order to calculate EPS correspond to the restatements carried out for the calculation of ROE and ROTE. As specified on page 45 of Societe Generale’s 2022 Universal Registration Document, the Group also publishes EPS adjusted for the impact of non-economic and exceptional items presented in methodology note No. 5.
The calculation of Earnings Per Share is described in the following table:

10 - The Societe Generale Group’s Common Equity Tier 1 capital is calculated in accordance with applicable CRR2/CRD5 rules. The fully loaded solvency ratios are presented pro forma for current earnings, net of dividends, for the current financial year, unless specified otherwise. When there is reference to phased-in ratios, these do not include the earnings for the current financial year, unless specified otherwise. The leverage ratio is also calculated according to applicable CRR2/CRD5 rules including the phased-in following the same rationale as solvency ratios.


NB (1) The sum of values contained in the tables and analyses may differ slightly from the total reported due to rounding rules.

(2) All the information on the results for the period (notably: press release, downloadable data, presentation slides and supplement) is available on Societe Generale’s website www.societegenerale.com in the “Investor” section.
