Prague, 28 July 2022 – MONETA Money Bank (“MONETA”) today announced its unaudited financial results for the first half of 2022. Net profit increased by 100.7 per cent year-on-year to CZK 2.9 billion, representing a Return on Tangible Equity of 22.6 per cent. Strong profitability in the first half was largely supported by the interest rate environment, favourable Cost of Risk and stable operating expenses.

Net interest income grew significantly by 18.2 per cent year-on-year due to higher market rates. Net fee and commission income performed strongly and increased by 6.7 per cent due to higher third-party commission income and a higher volume of transactions. Overall, total operating income reached CZK 6.1 billion, up 13.1 per cent against the same period last year. Total operating costs were stable and in fact slightly decreased by 1.9 per cent year-on- year to CZK 2.8 billion. This reflects continued cost discipline across all of MONETA’s businesses in the face of inflationary pressures. Operating expenses were further supported by the one-off reimbursement of terminated

PRESS RELEASE

acquisition costs in the amount of CZK 113 million. Operating expenses adjusted for the acquisition charges and reimbursement were up by 2 per cent year-on-year, mainly in the personnel and administrative cost categories.

MONETA’s Cost of Risk significantly improved compared to the first half of last year, recording a net provision release of CZK 250 million, or positive 0.19 per cent of the average net loan portfolio. This was mainly driven by upgrades or repayments of non-performing loan exposures in the amount of CZK 1.6 billion. The result was also supported by successful NPL disposals generating a pre-tax gain of CZK 160 million, as well as consistently good repayment discipline.

MONETA reported a strong capital position with regulatory capital of CZK 29.3 billion. The capital adequacy ratio stood at 16.8 per cent, which was 1.7 per cent above the management target of 15.1 per cent. MONETA maintained excess capital of CZK 5.2 billion, including CZK 2.3 billion of accruals for future dividend payments. The strong capital position offers a solid basis for further growth of the business and future dividend distributions.

MONETA won a record 12 awards in the annual Financial Academy’s Zlata koruna (Golden Crown) awards, including four gold and six silver awards. Smart Banka mobile application won one gold and two silver awards, the online mortgage offering took the gold award for Innovation of the Year and a further two golds were awarded for the Building savings proposition and the Konto FOR Business (Konto PRO podnikání) current account proposition.

MONETA and Komerční banka (KB) signed an agreement to share their ATM networks across the Czech Republic. This will increase the availability of cash services for clients of both banks and contribute to sustainability as ATM locations are optimised and resources saved regarding the operation and servicing of ATMs. In a joint statement, MONETA and KB invited other banks to join the initiative in order to make the national network of ATMs more efficient and more environmentally friendly. Several banks expressed interest in participating. The initiative will see a significant expansion of available machines by adding KB’s 863 ATM to MONETA’s own network.

MONETA currently has 558 ATMs, of which 186 machines provide deposit functions. For MONETA and KB, the sharing of selected banking infrastructure will have a positive impact, reducing energy consumption and other costs associated with the operation of separate ATM networks, and reducing the carbon footprint of both banking networks.

MONETA’s environment, social and governance – ESG – practices were recognised with the receipt of a first ESG rating from FTSE Russell, with a rating of three points out of a maximum five points in the FTSE4Good Emerging Index. Companies need to meet a variety of ESG criteria for inclusion in the FTSE4Good indices, which are designed to measure the performance of investable companies that demonstrate strong and transparent ESG practices.

MONETA made progress towards its goal of reducing its 2016 carbon footprint by 90 per cent by 2026. The latest report on MONETA’s carbon footprint reported that in 2021 it had decreased by 76.3 per cent since 2016.

Loan portfolio quality

The quality of MONETA’s loan portfolio improved during the period under review. The NPL portfolio stood at CZK 3.8 billion after decreasing by CZK 2.5 billion during the last twelve months. The ratio of non-performing loans (NPL) decreased year-on-year from 2.5 per cent to 1.4 per cent. The improved NPL ratio resulted from successful disposals of NPLs nominal value of CZK 0.5 billion, a good portfolio performance and continued good payment discipline of previously downgraded exposures. Overall coverage through loan loss provisions of the loan book decreased from 2.5 per cent at the end of the first half 2021 to 1.9 per cent at the end of the first half 2022.

PROFITABILITY AND RETURN ON CAPITAL

  • Reported total operating expenses of CZK 2.8 billion, lower by 1.9 per cent year-on-year, supported by one-time reimbursement of CZK 113 million costs related to terminated acquisition of Air Bank Group.

  • Pre-impairmentprofit reached CZK 3.3 billion, up 29.9 per cent.
  • Total Cost of Risk lowered significantly to positive 0.19 per cent, amounting to a net release of CZK 250 million, which was driven mainly by released provisioning related to NPL disposals and upgrades of NPLs, which were regularly repaid.
  • Income tax stable at CZK 673 million with effective tax rate at 19 per cent.
  • Net profit of CZK 2.9 billion, up 100.7 per cent year-on-year, resulting from the above-mentioned drivers.
  • Return on Tangible Equity doubled year-on-year to 22.6 per cent.

BALANCE SHEET AND CLIENT BASE

Overall balance sheet of CZK 367.1 billion, up 16 per cent year-on-year due to expanding deposit base and earnings retention. Compared to 1H 2021 the size of the balance sheet was positively impacted by a campaign on savings accounts which was launched in the fourth quarter of 2021.
