Nordea Bank AB: Final Results

Del

COPENHAGEN, Denmark, Jan. 25, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --

Paris Stock Exchange : XHFT

Fourth Quarter and Full Year Results 2017

CEO Casper von Koskull's comments on the results:

"In 2017, volumes and margins were relatively stable, and business momentum was solid overall. At the end of 2017, we were negatively impacted by a very low activity level on capital markets. The planned de-risking of the bank, with reduced exposure to Russia, Shipping, Offshore & Oil Services, also reduced income levels.

After years of intense investments, things are happening now and we are entering the next stage on our transformation journey. We have built up our capabilities within compliance and risk management functions. Our digital investments result in an increased roll out frequency of improved products and services to our customers. The core banking platform replacement is proceeding in line with budget and will lead to lower operational risks and improved customer satisfaction. Costs are being reduced as part of improved cost efficiency structures throughout the organisation.

Capital generation in 2017 remains strong and we increased the Common Equity Tier 1 ratio by 110 bps to a record-high 19.5%. The Board proposes a dividend per share of EUR 0.68, compared to EUR 0.65 in 2016. This is in line with Nordea's dividend and capital policy.

We are not satisfied with the development in profit during the latter part of 2017. For 2018 we are confident that net profit will grow, and we expect to see slightly higher revenues, lower costs and a stable credit quality. Nordea today stands much more robust and resilient and I am thus confident that we stand prepared to handle both the risks and challenges, and capitalise on future opportunities in our home markets."
