Inside information, profit warning: Alisa Bank brings down the outlook for 2023 in terms of income development

Alisa Bank Plc Stock Exchange Release, Insider information 24.10.2023 AT 15.10 EEST

Alisa Bank brings down the outlook for 2023 in terms of income development. Due to the unfavorable market situation, the procedures aimed at strengthening the capital structure have not progressed on schedule. Lending has been limited considering the bank’s capital adequacy target. In addition, the growth of the loan portfolio has been limited by prudence in lending related to the weakened economic situation, especially for business customers. Due to the limited development of the loan portfolio, the bank's income will not increase in the second half of the year from the level of the first half, as was estimated in previous outlook.

New outlook for 2023:

In 2023, we aim for profitable growth. We increase the bank's loan portfolio under the conditions of profitability and capital adequacy, taking into account the uncertainty of the financial situation in lending. Our growth is supported by more comprehensive banking services for our customers and our digital services that create differentiation. The general rise in interest rates continues to support the improvement of our profitability.

During the second half of 2023, the bank’s income is estimated to decrease from the level of the first half of 2023. The profit before non-recurring items is estimated to be positive in 2023.

The target for the group's total capital adequacy ratio is 16 percent.

Previous outlook for 2023, that was published in connection with the half year financial report 18.8.2023:

In 2023, we aim for profitable growth.

The result before non-recurring items is estimated to be positive in 2023. The target for the group's total capital adequacy ratio is 16 percent. The aim is to strengthen the company's own capital during the second half of 2023.
