Net income increased by 31.6% to KZT 334.5bn for 12M 2019 compared to KZT 254.2bn for 12M 2018 mainly due to net interest income growth in 12M 2019. For 12M 2018 the Bank had higher loss from impairment of non-financial assets of KZT 27.3 bn compared to 7.4bn for 12M 2019, and in 2Q 2018 there was a de-recognition of tax loss carry forward of KZT 43.3bn by Kazkommertsbank's (KKB) due to the merger into Halyk Bank. Interest income increased by 4.1% to KZT 710.3bn for 12M 2019 compared to KZT 682.0bn for 12M 2018 mainly as a result of increase in average balances of interest-earning assets by 9.8%. Interest expense for 12M 2019 decreased by 6.4% compared to 12M 2018 mainly due to continuous repricing of retail term deposits following the decrease of deposit interest rate cap by Kazakhstan Deposit Insurance Fund. As a result of increase in net interest income and due to increase in the share of placement of interest-bearing liabilities into interest-earning assets, net interest margin increased to 5.3% p.a. for 12M 2019 compared to 5.1% p.a. in 12M 2018. Cost of risk on loans to customers for 12M 2019 was at 0.7%, more normalized level compared to 0.5% for 12M 2018 which was mainly due to repayment of a large ticket impaired corporate loan and transfer of few problem corporate loans to subsidiary SPVs in 4Q 2018. Fee and commission income* for 12M 2019 increased by 8.8% p.a. vs. 12M 2018 as a result of growing volumes of transactional banking, mainly in payment cards operations, as well as letters of credit and guarantees issued.Prior to the merger, the transfers within legal entities' current accounts in Halyk and KKB were treated as external transfers and relevant fees were applied. After the integration, the transfers between those current accounts are being treated as internal and therefore are free of charge. As a result, fees derived from Bank transfers - settlements decreased in 12M 2019 vs. 12M 2018. The decrease in fees derived from cash operations in 12M 2019 vs. 12M 2018 was mainly due to increased volumes of non-cash transactions. Fee and commission expense increased by 40.1% compared to 12M 2018 mainly due to increased number of transactions of other banks' cards in the acquiring network of the Bank. Operating income increased by 10.8% vs. 12M 2018 mainly due to increase in net interest income. On the back of lower operating expenses and higher operating income for 12M 2019 vs. 12M 2018, the Bank's cost-to-income ratio decreased to 26.0% compared to 31.7% for 12M 2018. * Starting from 1Q 2019 the portion of fees relating to payment card operations, which was previously accounted within cash operations and bank transfers, are represented as fees derived from payment card operations. Figures for 4Q 2018 were recalculated accordingly.

Compared with the YE 2018, loans to customers increased by 6.9% on a gross basis and 7.8% on a net basis. Increase of gross loan portfolio in 2019 was attributable to increase in corporate loans (5.9% on a gross basis), increase in SME loans (9.4% on a gross basis), and increase in retail loans (7.9% on a gross basis). As at the end of 4Q 2019, Stage 3 ratio decreased to 16.0% from 17.9% as at the end of 3Q 2019 mainly as a result of write-off and repayment of previously impaired indebtedness of corporate and retail borrowers. Deposits of legal entities increased by 0.8% and deposits of individuals decreased by 4.3%, compared to YE 2018 mainly due to partial withdrawal of funds by the Bank's customers to finance their ongoing needs and transfer of a part of FX retail deposits into USD-denominated bonds placed at Astana International Exchange. As at 31 December 2019, the share of corporate KZT deposits in total corporate deposits was 49.4% compared to 49.6% as at 30 September 2019, whereas the share of retail KZT deposits in total retail deposits was 43.7% compared to 42.2% as at the end of 3Q 2019. Amounts due to credit institutions increased by 81.7% vs. YE 2018 mainly due to increase in loans and deposits from Kazakhstan banks (including loans under REPO agreements) attracted for placement at higher rates. As at 31 December 2019, 86.2% of the Bank's obligations to financial institutions were represented by loans from Kazakhstan banks (incl. loans under REPO agreements), KazAgro national managing holding, DAMU development fund, Development Bank of Kazakhstan drawn in 2014-2017 within the framework of government programs supporting certain sectors of economy. Debt securities issued decreased by 7.4% vs. YE 2018, mainly due to the early partial prepayment of Bank's USD 750,000,000 Eurobond issue on 1 March 2019, redemption of Bank's KZT 3.5bn subordinated bonds on 26 April 2019 and redemption of Bank's KZT 59.9bn coupon bonds on 14 November 2019.

Net income increased by 31.6% to KZT 334.5bn for 12M 2019 compared to KZT 254.2bn for 12M 2018 mainly due to net interest income growth in 12M 2019. For 12M 2018 the Bank had higher loss from impairment of non-financial assets of KZT 27.3 bn compared to 7.4bn for 12M 2019, and in 2Q 2018 there was a de-recognition of tax loss carry forward of KZT 43.3bn by Kazkommertsbank's (KKB) due to the merger into Halyk Bank. Interest income increased by 4.1% to KZT 710.3bn for 12M 2019 compared to KZT 682.0bn for 12M 2018 mainly as a result of increase in average balances of interest-earning assets by 9.8%. Interest expense for 12M 2019 decreased by 6.4% compared to 12M 2018 mainly due to continuous repricing of retail term deposits following the decrease of deposit interest rate cap by Kazakhstan Deposit Insurance Fund. As a result of increase in net interest income and due to increase in the share of placement of interest-bearing liabilities into interest-earning assets, net interest margin increased to 5.3% p.a. for 12M 2019 compared to 5.1% p.a. in 12M 2018. Cost of risk on loans to customers for 12M 2019 was at 0.7%, more normalized level compared to 0.5% for 12M 2018 which was mainly due to repayment of a large ticket impaired corporate loan and transfer of few problem corporate loans to subsidiary SPVs in 4Q 2018. Fee and commission income* for 12M 2019 increased by 8.8% p.a. vs. 12M 2018 as a result of growing volumes of transactional banking, mainly in payment cards operations, as well as letters of credit and guarantees issued.Prior to the merger, the transfers within legal entities' current accounts in Halyk and KKB were treated as external transfers and relevant fees were applied. After the integration, the transfers between those current accounts are being treated as internal and therefore are free of charge. As a result, fees derived from Bank transfers - settlements decreased in 12M 2019 vs. 12M 2018. The decrease in fees derived from cash operations in 12M 2019 vs. 12M 2018 was mainly due to increased volumes of non-cash transactions. Fee and commission expense increased by 40.1% compared to 12M 2018 mainly due to increased number of transactions of other banks' cards in the acquiring network of the Bank. Operating income increased by 10.8% vs. 12M 2018 mainly due to increase in net interest income. On the back of lower operating expenses and higher operating income for 12M 2019 vs. 12M 2018, the Bank's cost-to-income ratio decreased to 26.0% compared to 31.7% for 12M 2018. * Starting from 1Q 2019 the portion of fees relating to payment card operations, which was previously accounted within cash operations and bank transfers, are represented as fees derived from payment card operations. Figures for 4Q 2018 were recalculated accordingly.

Compared with the YE 2018, loans to customers increased by 6.9% on a gross basis and 7.8% on a net basis. Increase of gross loan portfolio in 2019 was attributable to increase in corporate loans (5.9% on a gross basis), increase in SME loans (9.4% on a gross basis), and increase in retail loans (7.9% on a gross basis). As at the end of 4Q 2019, Stage 3 ratio decreased to 16.0% from 17.9% as at the end of 3Q 2019 mainly as a result of write-off and repayment of previously impaired indebtedness of corporate and retail borrowers.

Debt securities issued decreased by 7.4% vs. YE 2018, mainly due to the early partial prepayment of Bank's USD 750,000,000 Eurobond issue on 1 March 2019, redemption of Bank's KZT 3.5bn subordinated bonds on 26 April 2019 and redemption of Bank's KZT 59.9bn coupon bonds on 14 November 2019.
