Bank of Ireland limited its underlying 2020 loss to 374 million euros ($452 million) after a return to profitability in the second half, the bank said on Monday, sending its shares more than 5% higher. Ireland's largest bank by assets also announced the closure of one-third of its branches in Ireland, 10 days after NatWest said it would wind down its Irish arm Ulster Bank. An underlying 295 million euros second half profit limited the damage as lending and business income improved, trends Chief Financial Officer Myles O'Grady said continued into 2021, even though Ireland was in a long lockdown again.
DREAM UNLIMITED CORP. (TSX:DRM) announced today that its board of directors has approved the payment of a quarterly cash dividend of $0.070 per Class A Subordinate Voting Share and Class B Common Share payable on March 31, 2021 to shareholders of record on March 15, 2021.
Bank of Ireland's shares rose by 10% on Wednesday as some signs of recovery from the coronavirus crisis outweighed a first-half pre-tax loss of 669 million euros ($790 million). Ireland's largest bank by assets put aside 937 million euros mainly to cover likely losses from 105,000 loan repayment breaks for customers hit by the crisis, making up the bulk of a "prudent" 1.1-1.3 billion euro charge expected during 2020. "We're cautiously optimistic that we're beginning to see green shoots," Chief Financial Officer Myles O'Grady told Reuters by telephone, pointing to a 25% year-on-year jump in Irish mortgage applications in July and a 6% month-on-month rise in business loan volumes.
