The bank for a changing world

Selected financial data and ratios

Below, we present the selected items of the Consolidated Financial Statements of the Capital Group of BNP Paribas Bank Polska S.A.

The most important event affecting the level of net profit in 2020 and comparability of results with 2019 was the coronavirus pandemic, which started in Poland in March 2020 and radically changed the economic situation of the country and the conditions of activities of the Group and its clients. The factors that had the greatest impact on the Group's financial results were the following:
- reduction of the NBP interest rates implemented by the Monetary Policy Council by decisions of 17 March, 8 April and 28 May 2020 (for the reference rate decrease from 1.5% to 0.1%). These changes resulted in a decrease in market rates and a consequent decrease in the Group's interest income, mitigated to some extent by the adjustment measures taken in the area of pricing policy. Net interest income in 2020 was PLN 108,689 thousand (by 3.4%) lower compared to 2019. In addition, changes in the yield curve had a negative impact on the result on the loan portfolio measured at fair value through profit or loss, i.e. the result on the Group's investment activities;
- disruption of business activities caused by sanitary restrictions introduced in Poland at the end of the first quarter and at the beginning of the fourth quarter of 2020, which negatively affected the economic situation and consequently led to the significant increase of the cost of risk almost due to additional impairment losses resulting from changes in macroeconomic scenarios following COVID-19. The result of impairment losses on financial assets and provisions for contingent liabilities in 2020 was negative and amounted to PLN 601,499 thousand, compared to PLN 441,890 thousand in 2019 (increase by PLN 159,609 thousand, i.e. by 36.1%). The impact of COVID-19 on the cost of risk in 2020 is estimated to PLN 236,498 thousand and is primarily due to the change in macroeconomic scenarios following COVID-19 (forward looking PD and LGD determined based on smoothed macro forecasts) and the Bank's assessment of the expected future impact of current economic conditions on risk parameters for selected customer types
- a significant reduction in activity and changes in the existing habits and behaviour of the Group's customers, which adversely affected the scale of the business and consequently the level of the Group's fee and commission income and trading profit
The factor that mitigated to some extent the negative impact of the coronavirus pandemic on the comparison of the Group's financial results for 2020 to 2019 is the fact that in November 2019 the operational merger between the Bank and the core business of Raiffeisen Bank Polska S.A. ("RBPL", "Core RBPL") was completed. As a result, the results of 2020 were not affected by the negative impact of integration costs.

* Normalised values calculated excluding: integration costs (in 2020: positive value of PLN 15,336 thousand, in 2019 negative value - PLN 414,537 thousand). The impact of integration costs on net profit was estimated using an income tax rate of 19%. In the case of the "costs" category, the amount visible in the financial statements was reduced by the amount of integration costs recorded within general administrative expenses and depreciation. In the case of the "income" category, the income statement figures comprising the result on banking activities were adjusted by the integration costs recorded within other operating expenses. From 2020 onwards, provisions for proceedings relating to CHF mortgage loans are presented as a separate line apart from income, this change has been taken into account for 2019.
