At the banking system level, the first half of 2013 was characterized by a sluggish credit activity.


Consequently, BRD operated in an environment marked by weak demand for loans from both individual and corporate customers, which limited their investments.


The total amount of gross loans granted to clients is of 34.85 RON billion, lower by 1.0% compared to June 30, 2012. Progression was noticed in retail loans (+3.2% vs -1.4% at market level, at end of May, 2013). This positive evolution in loans to individuals has been triggered by growth in housing loans portfolio (especially loans granted in the framework of the “Prima Casa” program), up 31.7% against June 30, 2012. Loans granted to companies (RON 17.59 bn) saw a decrease against June 2012 (-4.8%).


Deposits were, at end of H1 2013, up 0.9% against June 30, 2012, reaching 33.26 RON billion, pushed up by foreign currency deposits.


Consequently the net loans to deposits ratio continued to improve and stands at a level of 91.4%, lower by 6.2 points against June 30, 2012.


The Net Banking Income stands at 1,360 RON million, down by 5% compared to same period last year, mainly due to the decrease in the net interest margin (-8.7%, influenced by negative volume and structure effects).


Cost optimization efforts led to significant reduction in operational expenses: - 8.9 % against the same period of last year. The cost/income ratio stands at 45%, improved by 1.9 points against H1 2012.


The Net Cost of Risk for the 1st half of 2013 saw a positive evolution against June 30, 2012, with a decrease of 7.8%.


The net profit at the end of the first semester was of RON 62 million, up 58% against H1 2012.
