Mestre (Venice), 3 August 2018 – The Board of Directors of Banca IFIS (Fitch BB+, outlook stable) met today under the chairmanship of Sebastien Egon Fürstenberg and approved the interim financial report for the first half of 2018.   

““In the first six months of the year, we were extremely active in each segment, evolving our individual businesses, supporting firms that can now work with more confidence and sustainable business models”, says Giovanni Bossi, Banca IFIS CEO. “The Group has developed new alliances to accelerate the growth of the leasing business, working together with high-standing partners. Always concerning the leasing segment, innovation led us to replace our technological platform as well as improve and streamline all operational processes.

We acquired control of Credifarma—to be consolidated in the second half of 2018—to strengthen our presence in the pharmacy lending sector. In the first six months of the year, we announced the acquisition of the servicer FBS and finalised the acquisition of 100% of CapitalFin. This allows the Group to enter the salary-backed loan business, supporting the NPL segment. Finally, in July we launched a new initiative in the insurance sector. The economic and other benefits of all these activities will start materialising in the second half of 2018.

As for NPLs, in July the Group finalised the acquisition of non-performing loan portfolios with a par value of nearly 600 million Euro. Over the next few months, special emphasis will be placed on providing new debt restructuring solutions to entities that currently hold UTPs, so as to identify the best possible solutions to give new momentum to Italian businesses.

Unfortunately, in the second quarter—concludes Giovanni Bossi—our performance was affected by a series of particularly material events that are unlikely to happen again with the same intensity. I am happy with the results of our ordinary activities in the first six months of 2018, and we confirm our guidance across all businesses for the second half of the year”.



The Banca IFIS Group's results5 for the half quarter of the year can be summarised as follows:

Net banking income  

 
Net banking totalled 278,1 million Euro, +9,8% compared to the first half of 2017 (253,2 million Euro at 30 June 2017). The positive result was largely due to the outstanding performance of the NPL segment—as well as the contribution from the Enterprises segment's Trade Receivables and Leasing areas. The result for the first half of the year was negatively affected by the lower impact of the reversal of the PPA, i.e. the breakdown of the difference between the fair value as measured in the business combination and the carrying amount of the receivables recognised by the former Interbanca Group over time (44,1 million Euro at 30 June 2018, compared to 57,8 million Euro at 30 June 2017, -23,8%) influenced in the recent past by some early payments.

 
Net impairment losses

 
Net impairment losses amounted to -40,0 million Euro, compared to 12,1 million Euro in net reversals in the prior-year period, and essentially referred to loans to customers of the Enterprises segment. This was attributable to two factors: the higher provisions set aside (14 million) on an individually significant position in the first six months of 2018, compared to 26,8 million Euro in reversals in 2017 in the Corporate Banking area. In the first six months of 2018, the Enterprises segment’s cost of credit calculated under IFRS 9 amounted to 138 bps, compared to 31 bps under IAS 39 at 31 December 2017. In the previous year, the Bank had recognised some reversals of impairment losses, excluding which the cost of credit quality would have amounted to 89 bps.

 
Operating Costs

 
Operating costs totalled 144,2 million Euro (119,5 million Euro at 30 June 2017, +20,7%), resulting in a cost/income ratio of 51,8% (49,0% in the prior-year period). Personnel expenses rose to 55,5 million Euro (49,5 million Euro in June 2017, +12,1%), consistently with the addition of new hires (including those of the new subsidiary Capitalfin); at 30 June 2018 Group employees numbered 1.577 (up 173 people). Administrative expenses amounted to 95,1 million Euro, up 36,1% from 69,9 million Euro in the prior-year period. This was the result of the increase reported by the NPL segment, driven by rising judicial debt collection costs as well as the adoption of the new statistical model for estimating the NPL segment's positions undergoing judicial operations in the NPL area. These costs totalled 14,8 million (that impact on legal expenses and registration fees) and had been previously deferred until the issue of the Garnishment Order.
In addition, the period saw an increase in the expenses associated with consulting services related to the adoption of new technological systems and the help provided to the Group's internal employees in the various projects launched during the first half of the year.

Pre-tax profit totalled 93,9 million Euro in the first six months of 2018, compared to 145,9 million Euro in the prior-year period.

At 30 June 2018, the Group net profit for the period totalled 66,2 million Euro, down 36,1% from 103,7 million Euro at 30 June 2017.

As for the contribution of individual segments6  to the operating and financial results at 30 June 2018, here below are the highlights:

  •  The Enterprises segment's net banking income, accounting for 59,3% of the total, amounted to 165,1 million Euro, slightly down from the prior-year period (-3,9%).

            Specifically, Trade Receivables generated 80,3 million Euro in net banking income (78,8 million Euro in the first half of 2017, +1,9%); the segment's turnover rose to 6,1 billion Euro (+8,8% from 30 June 2017), while the number of corporate customers rose to over 5.600. Outstanding trade receivables amounted to 3,4 billion Euro, in line with 31 December 2017. To support the entities that do business with Italy's Public Administration, the Group continued developing the TiAnticipo web portal, through which companies can upload their government-certified invoices and rapidly obtain financing.
            As for Leasing, the merger of IFIS Leasing into Banca IFIS was finalised in May, with the adoption of a new technological platform. The Leasing Area's net banking income totalled 26,2 million Euro, up 7,0% (+1,7 million Euro) compared to 30 June 2017. The increase was driven by net interest income (+0,8 million Euro) as well as commission income (+0,9 million Euro), which benefited from the rise in lending volumes, and the higher number of customers.
            Corporate Banking's net banking income totalled 52,5 million Euro, down 7,2 million Euro compared to 30 June 2017. The decline was largely attributable to the lower positive impact of the breakdown of the difference between the fair value as measured in the business combination and the carrying amount of the receivables recognised by the former subsidiary over time (so-called “reversal PPA”), down 12,3 million Euro from the prior-year period—which was to be expected. In the first half of 2017, Corporate Banking reported 26,8 million Euro in net reversals, largely because of an individually significant reversal of impairment losses on receivables.
             
            Loans to businesses totalled 5.599,7 million Euro at 30 June 2018, +2,5% compared to the restated data at 1 January 2018.

             

  • The NPL Area7 , dedicated to acquiring and converting mostly unsecured non-performing loans into sustainable settlement plans, transferred all its operations to the subsidiary IFIS NPL S.p.A. effective 1 July 2018. With 119,3 million Euro in net banking 79,0 million Euro in 2017, +51,1%) the NPL Area was the Group's fastest-growing segment, thanks to the higher number of court-issued garnishment orders as well as the strong performance in converting existing portfolios. Cash receipts rose from approximately 54 million Euro in the first half of 2017 to nearly 81 million Euro in the first six months of 2018. During the semester, the Group further refined the statistical measurement models for its assets under management: specifically, it adopted a new model for estimating the positions undergoing judicial operations, resulting in an approximately 34,7 million Euro positive impact through profit or loss.

             

            During the period, the Bank continued diversifying its funding sources and making them more flexible. At 30 June 2018, the Group's funding structure was as follows:

                  o   59,4% retail;

                  o   14,0% debt securities;

                  o   12,8% ABS;

                  o   8,9% TLTRO;

                  o  4,9% other.

                         

As for gross non-performing exposures, following the introduction of the category of the so-called POCI – “purchased or originated credit-impaired” financial assets under the new standard IFRS 9, the new write-off policies adopted by the Group, and in accordance with the 5th update to Circular 262 of the Bank of Italy, the presentation of gross non-performing exposures and the relevant impairment losses has changed significantly starting from 1 January 2018. As a result, gross non-performing exposures in the Enterprises segment accounted for 10,5% of total exposures at 30 June 2018, compared to 20,1% at 1 January 2018.

Overall, the gross non-performing loans of the enterprises segment totalled 615,7 million Euro, with 247,6 million Euro in impairment losses and a coverage ratio of 40,2% at 30 June 2018.

Below is the breakdown of net non-performing loans in the Enterprises segment8 (totalling 368,1 billion Euro):

  • net bad loans amounted to 68,0 million Euro, compared to 62,9 million Euro of the restated data at 1 January 2018 (+8,2%); the net bad-loan ratio was 1,2%, unchanged from the restated data at 1January 2018. The coverage ratio stood at 70,1% (71,0% at 1 January 2018);
  • net unlikely to pay totalled 143,7 million Euro, -11,9% from 163,1 million Euro at the data restated at 1 January 2018; the coverage ratio declined to 34,0% from 26,5% at 1 January 2018. The change was mainly attributable to the higher provisions set aside on an individually significant position;
  • Net non-performing past due exposures totalled 156,5 million Euro, compared with 112,0 million Euro at 1 January 2018 (+39,7%). The rise was partly due to the natural increase in past due exposures to Italy's Public Administration as well as to new private-sector past due positions, concentrated on individually significant counterparties. The coverage ratio of net non-performing past due exposures stood at 8,5% (10,6% at 1 January 2018).

At the end of the period, consolidated equity totalled 1.373,1 million Euro, compared to 1.368,7 million Euro at 31 December 2017 (+0,3%).

The consolidated Common Equity Tier 1 (CET1), Tier 1 (T1) and Total Own Funds Ratios of the Banca IFIS Group alone, excluding the effect of the consolidation of the Parent Company La Scogliera9  at 30 June 2018, amounted to 15,13% for both the CET1 and T1 ratios, compared to 15,64% at 31 December 2017, while the consolidated Total Own Funds Ratio amounted to 20,28%, compared to 21,07% at 31 December 2017.

Preferred unsecured senior bond placement
In April 2018, Banca IFIS announced and successfully completed the placement of its first preferred unsecured senior bond issue.

Fitch assigned a “BB+” long-term rating to the bond.

Agreement to acquire FBS S.p.A.

On 15 May 2018, the Group finalised an agreement to acquire control over FBS S.p.A., a company operating in the NPL segment as a servicing specialist (including both master and special services), manager of secured and unsecured NPL portfolios, due diligence advisor, and investor authorised to conduct NPL transactions. The deal was notified to the Bank of Italy and is expected to close by September 2018 with the Group's acquisition of 90% of FBS for 58,5 million Euro.

Significant subsequent events

Acquisition of control of Credifarma S.p.A.
On 2 July 2018, the Group finalised the acquisition of a controlling interest in Credifarma S.p.A., a company specialising in pharmacy lending. The deal was finalised through Banca IFIS's acquisition of the combined 32,5% stake of UniCredit and BNL – BNP Paribas Group as well as the acquisition of part of Federfarma's current interest in the company, amounting to 21,5%. Finally, the lender finalised a capital increase reserved for Banca IFIS to provide Credifarma with a robust financial position for regulatory purposes as well as to pursue future growth plans. The deal requires an overall investment—including the capital increase—of approximately 8,8 million Euro.

Transfer of Banca IFIS's business unit dedicated to Non-Performing Loans
IFIS NPL S.p.A., the joint-stock company into which Banca IFIS spun off its NPL segment, became fully operational on 1 July 2018. The transaction, announced in December 2017, now becomes effective as Banca IFIS's Board of Directors has approved the transfer of the business unit.
IFIS NPL has obtained the authorisation to extend financing and was entered into the register of financial intermediaries pursuant to Article 106 of the Italian Consolidated Law on Banking effective 1 July 2018.

Declaration of the Corporate Accounting Reporting Officer
Pursuant to Article 154 bis, Paragraph 2 of the Consolidated Law on Finance, the Corporate Accounting Reporting Officer, Mariacristina Taormina, declares that the accounting information contained in this press release corresponds to the accounting records, books and entries.

1 Concerning the impact of the first-time adoption of IFRS 9, in the case of the statement of financial position, the comparative information is that at 1 January 2018 to enable comparison on a consistent basis; meanwhile, in the case of the income statement, the comparative information has been re-aggregated to ensure accounting consistency with the corresponding amounts at 30 June 2018.  2 Net impairment losses/reversals on receivables of the NPL segment were reclassified to interest receivable and similar income to present more fairly this particular business and because they represent an integral part of the return on the investment.  3 The reported total own funds ratio refers only to the scope of the Banca IFIS Group, thus excluding the effects of the prudential consolidation in the parent La Scogliera S.p.A. Consolidated own funds, risk-weighted assets and solvency ratios at 30 June 2017 were calculated based on the regulatory principles set out in Directive 2013/36/EU (CRD IV) and Regulation (EU) 575/2013 (CRR) dated 26 June 2013, which were transposed in the Bank of Italy's Circulars no. 285 and 286 of 17 December 2013. Article 19 of the CRR requires to include the unconsolidated holding of the banking Group in prudential consolidation. The CET1 at 30 June 2018 including La Scogliera S.p.A. amounted to 11,11%, compared to 11,66% at 31 December 2017, the Tier 1 capital was 11,85% compares to 12,18% as at 31 December 2017, while the Total Own Funds Ratio totalled 15,43%, compared to 16,15% at 31 December 2017.


4 Net impairment losses/reversals on receivables of the NPL segment were reclassified to interest receivable and similar income to present more fairly this particular business and because they represent an integral part of the return on the investment



5 With reference to the effects of the first-time adoption of IFRS 9, the comparative information in the statement of financial position refers to 1 January 2018 in order to allow for like-for-like comparison, whereas the comparative information in the income statement has been re-aggregated to ensure accounting consistency with the corresponding amounts at 30 June 2018.


   

   
 6 Starting from the first quarter of 2018, Banca IFIS has decided to report three business segments: the Enterprises segment (including all the areas that make up the Group's commercial offering for enterprises, i.e. trade receivables, corporate banking, leasing, and tax receivables); the NPL segment; and the Governance and Services segment. The comparative information has been restated by following the same logic.  7 Net impairment losses on receivables of the NPL segment were reclassified to interest receivable and similar income to present more fairly this particular business and because they represent an integral part of the return on the investment.

 8 Please note that, after the new accounting standard IFRS 9 and the provisions in the 5th update to Circular 262 of the Bank of Italy became effective, the Group restated non-performing loans in accordance with the rules concerning POCI –  Purchased or Originated Credit Impaired – assets as well as its new write-off policy.  9 The reported total own funds ratio refers only to the scope of the Banca IFIS Group, thus excluding the effects of the prudential consolidation in the parent La Scogliera S.p.A. Consolidated own funds, risk-weighted assets and solvency ratios at 30 June 2017 were calculated based on the regulatory principles set out in Directive 2013/36/EU (CRD IV) and Regulation (EU) 575/2013 (CRR) dated 26 June 2013, which were transposed in the Bank of Italy's Circulars no. 285 and 286 of 17 December 2013. Article 19 of the CRR requires to include the unconsolidated holding of the banking Group in prudential consolidation. The CET1 at 30 June 2018 including La Scogliera S.p.A. amounted to 11,11%, compared to 11,66% at 31 December 2017, total own fund tier 1 capital ratio (T1) was 11,85% compared to 12,18% at 31 December 2017 while the Total Own Funds Ratio totalled 15,43%, compared to 16,15% at 31 December 2017.
