Banca Transilvania Publishes 9M 2023 Results

During 9M 2023, Banca Transilvania recorded NII growth of 20.6% YoY, NFCI increase of 10.5%, a net banking income growth of 27.1%, and a net income to majority of RON 2.2bn, a 37.5% increase YoY. Furthermore, during Q3 2023, the Group recorded an NII increase of 13.5%, NFCI growth of 11.1%, a net banking income increase of 22.5%, and a net income to majority of RON 688.9m, a 14.5% increase YoY.

Starting off with the net interest income, it amounted to RON 3.79bn during 9M 2023, a 20.6% increase YoY, and RON 1.26bn during Q3 2023, a 13.5% growth. This came as a result of an increase in the lending activity to both households and corporate clients, as well as interest rates being higher compared to last year (average 3-month and 6-month ROBOR at app. 7% during 9M 2023). In terms of the net fee and commission income, during 9M 2023, it increased by 10.5% YoY to RON 941.7m, while during Q3, it grew by 11.1% to RON 334.9m. This was supported by the increase in the number of transactions, the number of clients, and the diversification of the operations available to customers. The last component, net trading income, decreased by 5.1% YoY to RON 524.8m during 9M but increased by 12.3% to RON 195.9m during Q3 2023. The 9M decrease came as a result of lower income from interest rate and exchange rate derivatives, which was partially offset by higher income from foreign exchange transactions.

Taken together, this led to a net banking income of RON 5.63bn during 9M 2023, a 27.1% increase YoY, and to RON 1.95bn during Q3, a 22.5% increase. In terms of operating expenses, they grew by 10.4% YoY to RON 2.75bn during 9M 2023, and by 17.5% YoY to RON 1bn during Q3 2023. Breaking this down further, employee expenses grew by 20% YoY both on the 9M and Q3 basis, amounting to RON 1.45bn and RON 471m, respectively. This increase came due to salary increases, benefits granted to employees to support them against the backdrop of inflationary pressures, as well as an expansion in the employee base. In fact, during 9M 2023, the Group recorded a 4.4% higher number of employees. Banca Transilvania also recorded lower impairment (or rather a reversal of impairment) of financial assets not measured at fair value through P&L, which declined by 38.8% to RON 225.8m, also positively influencing the 9M result. During Q3, this number grew slightly, by 2.5% to RON 168.3m.

Due to all of these developments, the net income to majority also grew significantly, increasing by 37.5% YoY to RON 2.2bn during 9M 2023, and by 14.5% YoY to RON 688.9m during Q3 2023.
