    REPORT

    Financial results

    The bank posted a loss of DKK 135 million before tax in Q2 2013. Excluding losses and writedowns, the bank's loss amounted to DKK 44 million. The performance was not satisfactory and almost DKK 35 million short of the expected level. The performance was mainly attributable to negative value adjustments. The rising level of interest rates in the latter half of June caused prices on the bank's bond portfolio to decline, as reflected in the bank's interest rate risk. This applied to the bank's bond portfolio as well as to the bond portfolio of its subsidiary Alm. Brand Formue A/S, in which the bank has an ownership interest of 43%. The bank posted an operating loss of DKK 8 million excluding losses and writedowns and value adjustments in Q2 2013, marking an improvement of DKK 18 million compared with Q1 2013. The bank's total impairment writedowns on loans, including credit-related value adjustments, amounted to DKK 91 million in Q2 2013. Losses and writedowns were within the projected range but remain high. In H1 2013, the bank posted a pre-tax loss of DKK 262 million. Excluding losses and writedowns, the bank posted a loss of DKK 79 million, and total impairment writedowns on loans, including credit-related value adjustments, amounted to DKK 183 million. Net interest and fee income Net interest and fee income rose by DKK 22 million to a total of DKK 108 million in Q2 2013 from DKK 86 million in Q1 2013. Interest income and expenses Net interest income rose by DKK 11 million to DKK 65 million in Q2 2013 from DKK 54 million in Q1 2013. The positive trend was driven primarily by a decline of DKK 18 million in interest expenses, of which DKK 14 million was attributable to the partial repayment in March of state-funded hybrid core capital and government guaranteed bonds. The remaining DKK 4 million was related to lower interest expenses for fixed-interest deposits due

    to a declining deposit balance, which is in line with the bank's strategy. Interest income from the bank's bond portfolio declined by DKK 5 million due to a reduction of the average bond portfolio by close to DKK 1 billion from Q1 to Q2. In Q2, the interest margin for the parent company and the banking group was 1.6% and 1.7%, respectively, against 1.2% and 1.3%, respectively, in Q1. The increase was primarily attributable to the DKK 18 million decline in interest expenses. Net interest income was DKK 119 million in H1 2013, against DKK 133 million in the same period of last year. In H1, the interest margin for the parent company and the banking group was 1.4% and 1.5%, respectively, against 1.3% and 1.4% in the H1 2012. Fee income and expenses Net fee income for Q2 2013 was DKK 43 million, marking an increase of DKK 11 million from the DKK 32 million reported in Q1 2013. The increase was attributable to higher brokerage income in Financial Markets, driven by existing customers and a fair increase in the number of new customers. Net fee income rose to DKK 75 million in H1 2013 from DKK 63 million in the same period of last year. Value adjustments The bank posted negative value adjustments of DKK 84 million in Q2. Excluding credit-related value adjustments of DKK 48 million, the bank posted a value adjustment loss of DKK 36 million, compared with a value adjustment gain of DKK 24 million in Q2 2012. The DKK 36 million value adjustment loss was composed of negative interest-related value adjustments of DKK 24 million on bonds, negative equity-related value adjustments of DKK 6 million and negative currency-related value adjustments of DKK 6 million. The negative value adjustments on the bond portfolio were a result of the rising level of interest rates at the end of June 2013.

    In order to increase the transparency of Alm. Brand Bank A/S financial statements, the bank publishes pro rata consolidated figures. The figures are set out in the financial highlights and key ratios above and, unless otherwise indicated, the comments provided in the review below concern pro rata figures. Banking group figures are commented on only when found relevant. To the extent it is deemed relevant, H1 2012 and Q1 2013, respectively, are used as benchmarks. The pro rata figures reflect the bank's proportionate ownership interests in the subsidiaries.

    REPORT In H1 2013, the banks bond portfolio produced a return equal to 1.6% p.a., which was satisfactory compared with the benchmark. In H1 2013, value adjustments, excluding credit-related value adjustments, amounted to a loss of DKK 45 million, against a gain of DKK 34 million in H1 2012. Other operating income Other operating income was DKK 15 million in Q2 2013, against DKK 16 million in Q1 2013. In H1 2013, this item amounted to DKK 31 million, against DKK 22 million in H1 2012. Other operating income primarily consists of leasing activities, and the volume of operating leases has increased. Costs The banks payroll costs and administrative expenses totalled DKK 106 million in Q2 2013, which was largely unchanged from the DKK 102 million reported in Q1 2013. In H1 2013, payroll costs and administrative expenses totalled DKK 209 million, against DKK 248 million in the same period of last year. Total depreciation, amortisation and impairment charges amounted to DKK 21 million in H1 2013, against DKK 14 million in H1 2012. The increase was attributable to the higher level of leasing activity. Other operating expenses Other operating expenses came to DKK 16 million in Q2 2013, against DKK 12 million in Q1 2013. Of the DKK 16 million reported in Q2, DKK 8 million related to the bank's expenses to the Guarantee Fund for Depositors and Investors and DKK 8 million related to costs and value adjustment of properties taken over temporarily. In H1 2013, other operating expenses amounted to DKK 28 million, against DKK 21 million in the same period of last year. Impairment of loans, etc. The banks impairment writedowns on loans amounted to DKK 43 million in Q2 2013, compared with DKK 42 million in Q1 2013. Losses and writedowns remain affected in particular by the tough economic conditions faced by agricultural customers as well as by private customers, who are impacted by a persistently weak housing market. In addition, the bank recognised credit-related value adjustments of DKK 48 million in Q2 2013,

    against DKK 50 million in Q1 2013. Accordingly, total impairment writedowns on loans, including credit-related value adjustments, amounted to DKK 91 million in Q2 2013, against DKK 92 million in Q1 2013. In H1 2013, this item amounted to DKK 183 million, against DKK 166 million in H1 2012. Balance sheet

    Loans and advances The banks loans and advances amounted to DKK 8.3 billion at 30 June 2013, against DKK 8.7 billion at 31 December 2012. Excluding developments in reverse transactions, intra-group transactions and writedowns, this marked a decline in loans and advances of DKK 426 million, of which DKK 260 million was attributable to the bank's discontinued activities. Debt to credit institutions The bank had debt to credit institutions of DKK 2.6 billion at 30 June 2013, against DKK 1.2 billion at 31 December 2012. The increase was attributable to repo contracts entered into. Deposits The bank had deposits of DKK 11.1 billion at 30 June 2013, against DKK 11.3 billion at 31 December 2012. The bank's deposit surplus increased to DKK 2.8 billion at 30 June 2013 from DKK 2.6 billion at 31 December 2012. Liquidity At 30 June 2013, the bank had cash funds of DKK 4.8 billion and excess liquidity of DKK 3.1 billion, equivalent to an excess cover of 190% relative to the statutory requirement. This was an expected decline relative to the excess cover of 256% reported at 31 December 2012. The excess liquidity of DKK 3.1 billion at 30 June 2013 was reduced by DKK 950 million at 1 July in connection with the bank's repayment of the remaining government guaranteed bonds. Capitalisation The banks equity stood at DKK 1.5 billion at 30 June 2013. The capital base totalled DKK 1.9 billion, and the risk-weighted items amounted to DKK 10.2 billion at 30 June 2013. Accordingly, the solvency ratio was 19.0, and the core capital ratio was 17.5. The bank's individual solvency need was calculated at 14.1%, which means that its solvency ratio exceeded the

  • Alm. Brand Bank A/S H1 2013

    Page 6 of 26

    REPORT individual solvency need by 4.9 percentage points. The banking group's equity stood at DKK 1.6 billion at 30 June 2013, and the capital base totalled DKK 2.0 billion. Risk-weighted items in the banking group totalled DKK 10.7 billion at 30 June 2013. Accordingly, the banking group had a solvency ratio of 18.5, and a core capital ratio of 17.1. The banking group's individual solvency need was calculated at 14.2%, which means that its solvency ratio exceeded the individual solvency need by 4.3 percentage points. New capital adequacy rules (CRD IV) New capital adequacy rules adopted by the EU will enter into force on 1 January 2014. The new rules prescribe, among other things, that equity should constitute a greater part of the capital base and that stricter requirements are set for the capital. The rules also scale down the inclusion of supplementary capital and tighten the requirements for hybrid capital. The rules will be phased in from 2014 to 2019. As a result of the new rules, the bank's excess capital adequacy will drop by about DKK 75 million with effect from 1 January 2014. Supervisory diamond

    At 30 June 2013, the bank was in compliance with all five threshold values of the Danish FSA's supervisory diamond as shown in the figure below.

    The changes in the bank's supervisory diamond indicators reflect that loans related to the bank's discontinued activities are developing according to plan. Lending growth remains negative, which had been expected considering the bank's lending strategy of focusing exclusively on private customers. The fall in the bank's excess liquidity was due to the bank's repayment in March 2013 of loans raised through bonds issued under Bank Package II.

    Major events

    Capital injection into the bank and repayment of hybrid core capital On 22 August 2013, Alm. Brand A/S injected DKK 200 million into Alm. Brand Bank A/S as equity. The capital injection will be used to repay an additional DKK 200 million of the remaining state-funded hybrid core capital, which totalled DKK 426 million before repayment. Repayment will take place when permission has been received. Repayment of government guaranteed bonds On 1 July 2013, the bank repaid the remaining DKK 950 million of the original DKK 6 billion bond issue, and the bond issue has now been fully repaid. Reduction of the value of deferred tax assets On 27 June 2013, the Danish parliament adopted a gradual reduction of the corporate tax rate in three steps over the next three years. The tax rate will be scaled down from the current 25% to 22% in 2016. The scale-down to 22% reduced the value of the bank's deferred tax assets by DKK 41 million. This amount was expensed in full in the second quarter. Changes to the Board of Directors At the bank's annual general meeting held on 17 April 2013, Ebbe Castella was elected as a new member of the Board of Directors. Outlook

    The full-year guidance excluding losses and writedowns is lowered by DKK 55 million to a loss of DKK 100 million. The downgrade is primarily based on negative value adjustments on the bank's portfolio of securities but also on the customers' declining borrowing requirements and on the higher than expected operating expenses for properties taken over and higher than expected expenses to the Guarantee Fund for Depositors and Investors. Expectations for the reduction in lending excluding losses and writedowns related to the bank's discontinued activities are maintained at around DKK 0.6 billion in 2013. The bank maintains its guidance for losses and writedowns in 2013 of DKK 300-400 million. The amount of losses and writedowns and credit-related value adjustments is subject to considerable uncertainty and the guidance is based on current economic and market conditions.

    BUSINESS ACTIVITIES Developments in the business areas Private Customers, Leasing and Financial Markets as well as in the bank's discontinued activities for the six months ended 30 June 2013 are reviewed below. Continuing activities

    The continuing activities consist of the business areas Private Customers, Leasing and Financial Markets. Private Customers handles activities related to servicing the bank's new and existing private customers. The business area Leasing is focused on private leasing of passenger and commercial vehicles with related car fleet management for businesses. Financial Markets handles the banks activities related to financial markets and comprises the areas Markets and Asset Management. In H1 2013, the continuing activities produced a loss of DKK 18 million excluding losses and writedowns. The performance was adversely affected by negative value adjustments on the bond portfolio of DKK 36 million. Private Customers This business area saw a fair increase in the number of full-service customers in H1 2013. The increase was driven both by entirely new customers and by existing customers who increased the scope of their business, thereby becoming full-service customers. However, the increase in the number of full-service customers and the gross increase in lending of DKK 200 million were not enough to offset the persistently weak borrowing appetite and the focus on debt reduction among private customers. Despite the weak borrowing appetite among private customers, the bank increased its average earnings per household by more than 3% in the H1 period. Lending to private customers represents the majority of the bank's continuing lending portfolio. This portfolio consists of loans and advances to private customers and is geographically diversified across Denmark. The portfolio includes car loans to private customers. Total loans and advances to private customers declined by DKK 114 million from 31 December 2012 to 30 June 2013. Adjusted for losses and

    writedowns, the decline was DKK 56 million. Among other things, the decline was attributable to conversion of home loans to mortgage loans through the bank's business partner Totalkredit. The portfolio of Totalkredit loans for which the bank acted as intermediary grew by close to 5%, or about DKK 180 million, in the first six months of 2013. At 30 June 2013, the portfolio of Totalkredit loans represented more than DKK 3.9 billion in aggregate. As total lending activities decline due to the winding up of discontinued activities, the bank will focus continuously on aligning the deposit balance in the Private Customer segment. In H1 2013, the bank reduced its deposit balance by more than DKK 200 million. In the first six months of 2013, losses and writedowns amounted to DKK 58 million, equivalent to 2.4% of the average portfolio value. Writedowns on the bank's private customers remain high, reflecting a persistently weak housing market that is still only showing signs of improvement in and around the major cities. Leasing In the first six months of 2013, Alm. Brand Leasing A/S delivered and ordered about 30% more cars than it did in all of 2012. In particular, car leasing and car fleet management for businesses developed favourably in H1 2013. This trend was reflected in a fair increase in the number of new business customers and in a reasonable replacement rate in the existing portfolio. Alm. Brand Leasing was the second largest provider of private car leasing measured in terms of new business in H1 2013. Part of the strategy for Alm. Brand Leasing is to step up direct sales of car leases to private customers, both directly to end customers and through partnerships with car importers. Financial Markets Earnings in Financial Markets were better than expected in H1 2013. Growth was generated primarily by Markets, which experienced a fair increase in the number of new customers. This combined with stronger than expected customer activity to produce higher average earnings per customer.

  • Alm. Brand Bank A/S H1 2013

    Page 8 of 26

    BUSINESS ACTIVITIES In terms of earnings, Asset Management performed marginally better than expected in the H1 period. Most of the mandates under management generated a reasonable performance. In the lending portfolio table, the segment Other loans and advances covers exposures for which

    an investment mandate has also been placed with Markets. These loans form part of the bank's continuing portfolio. Other loans and advances declined by DKK 108 million relative to 31 December 2012. The decline was mainly attributable to the discontinuation of a single exposure.

    Discontinued activities

    The discontinued activities are continuously reduced and relate mainly to loans provided to agricultural and commercial customers and for mortgage deeds. As part of the implementation of a controlled winding up of the individual exposures, the bank intends to grant additional loans as part of its credit defence efforts in relation to its collateral. This means that lending may increase in individual segments, even if a lending segment is being wound up. In H1 2013, the discontinued activities produced a loss of DKK 61 million excluding losses and writedowns. Total loans and advances provided to discontinued activities declined by DKK 386 million to DKK 5,256 million in H1 2013, now representing close to 64% of the bank's overall

    lending portfolio. Adjusted for losses and writedowns, loans and advances were reduced by DKK 260 million, which was in line with the expected level. Agriculture The portfolio increased by DKK 16 million to DKK 971 million in H1 2013. Adjusted for losses and writedowns, the portfolio increased by DKK 60 million because the bank has granted loans for necessary investments and to secure continuing operations, thereby protecting the underlying value to the bank. In H1 2013, losses and writedowns amounted to DKK 44 million, equivalent to 4.6% of the average portfolio value. The level of losses and writedowns reflects the difficult conditions agricultural customers continue to face. In spite of slightly improving market conditions, impairment writedowns continue to

    BUSINESS ACTIVITIES increase on agricultural customers with high debt ratios. Car finance The overall portfolio declined by DKK 60 million to DKK 170 million in H1 2013. No losses or writedowns were recognised on this segment in the first six months of 2013. Commercial lending The portfolio consists of loans for financing of investment properties, loans provided to small businesses and syndicated loans provided to medium-sized Danish businesses. The overall portfolio declined by DKK 84 million to DKK 1,074 million in H1 2013. Adjusted for losses and writedowns, the portfolio declined by DKK 109 million. In H1 2013, losses and writedowns produced an income of DKK 25 million, resulting from writedowns reversed in connection with the partial closing down of an exposure and to the underlying operations of certain commercial customers. Property development projects The portfolio consists of a limited number of property development projects. The bank will only finance the completion of ongoing projects pursuant to existing agreements. At 30 June 2013, almost 90% of lending in this segment related to a single project. The portfolio increased by DKK 21 million in H1 2013. Losses and writedowns amounted to DKK 2 million in H1 2013, corresponding to 0.8% of the average portfolio value. Mortgage deed exposure The bank's overall mortgage deed exposure, comprising mortgage deed financing and mortgage deeds, declined by DKK 279 million to DKK 2,766 million in H1 2013. Mortgage deeds run off naturally as a result of regular payments and redemptions. In H1 2013, the natural run-off on the overall mortgage deed portfolio was approximately 7% p.a. Mortgage deed financing This DKK 66 million portfolio consists of investment exposures secured against mortgage deeds. The portfolio fell by DKK 49 million in H1 2013. The main reason for the decline was that

    the bank closed out a number of investment exposures, in that connection taking over the collateral provided in the form of mortgage deeds. Losses and writedowns amounted to DKK 8 million in H1 2013, corresponding to 8.8% of the average portfolio value. Mortgage deeds This segment comprises the banks own portfolio of private mortgage deeds and commercial mortgage deeds. Private mortgage deeds amounted to DKK 2,012 million, comprising the banks portfolio of mortgage deeds secured primarily against single-family houses, commonhold flats and summer houses. The properties are located throughout Denmark. Commercial mortgage deeds amounted to DKK 688 million and comprise mortgage deeds secured against residential rental property, commercial property for office, trade and industrial use as well as land and mixed residential/ commercial property. The portfolio is marked to market on a current basis using a cash flow-based pricing model, which takes into account factors such as estimated prepayments and credit losses. Individual writedowns are taken on all delinquent mortgages or mortgages known to be showing signs of weakness. The portfolio declined by DKK 230 million in H1 2013. Credit-related value adjustments amounted to DKK 97 million in the reporting period, equivalent to 3.4% of the average portfolio value. Of this amount, DKK 55 million was private mortgage deeds and DKK 42 million was commercial mortgage deeds. The private mortgage deed portfolio was adversely affected by the general economic conditions. The number of private mortgage delinquencies remains high, although the delinquency rate was downtrending in Q2 2013. The bank continues to feel the effects of a weak commercial property letting market and the pressure on rent levels is seen to be mounting. Higher vacancy rates have resulted in revaluations, causing impairment writedowns to increase.

    Other contingent liabilitiesAlm. Brand Bank A/S is taxed jointly with Alm. Brand A/S as administration company. As from 1 July 2012, the bank is therefore jointly and severally liable with the other jointly taxed companies for any obligation to withhold tax on interest, royalties and dividends on behalf of the jointly taxed companies.

    Alm. Brand Bank A/S has entered into operating leases with Alm. Brand Leasing A/S. The residual value of future lease payments under these operating leases totalled DKK 6 million at 30 June 2013.

    Alm. Brand Bank A/S is a member of Bankdata, which operates the bank's key banking systems. Termination of this membership would cause the bank to incur a significant liability which would have to be calculated in accordance with Bankdata's by-laws.

    Being an active financial services group, the group is a party to a number of lawsuits. The cases are reviewed on an ongoing basis, and the necessary provisions are made. Management believes that these cases will not inflict further losses on the group.

    Collateral securityMonetary-policy counterparties with Danmarks Nationalbank can obtain credit only against security through the pledging of approved securities.

    As part of its current operations, the bank provided collateral security to Danmarks Nationalbank at 30 June 2013 in the form of bonds representing a nominal value of DKK 1,448 million (H1 2012: DKK 4,313 million) and loans representing a loan value of DKK 468 million (H1 2012: DKK 0 million).

    As collateral security for positive and negative fair values of derivative financial instruments, respectively, cash in the amount of DKK 0 million was received and cash in the amount of DKK 414 million was paid at 30 June 2013 (H1 2012: DKK 0 million and DKK 464 million).

    NOTE 13 Accounting policies group

    In addition, the interim consolidated financial statements are presented in accordance with additional Danish disclosure requirements for interim financial statements of listed financial companies.

The standard provides a single framework for measuring fair value and provides guidance on how to measure fair value along with disclosure requirements. The implementation did not have any significant effect on the financial results. The accounting policies are otherwise unchanged from the policies applied in the financial statements for 2012.

    The interim financial statements for H1 of 2013 are unaudited.

    The consolidated interim financial statements are prepared in accordance with IAS 34 "Interim Financial Reporting" as adopted by the EU.
