Comment by Margus Rink, Chairman of the Management Board of Coop Pank:
“In October, Coop Pank continued to grow the number of customers and business volumes and operated effectively. Although requests for financing products have decreased and deposit growth has slowed down on the market, Coop Pank was able to be effective and increased both loan and deposit portfolios in October. This shows that the domestic Coop Pank continues to be there for local customers and is ready to offer solutions even in more difficult times.
By increasing revenues and keeping operational costs under control, Coop Pank earned a record monthly profit of 2.4 million euros in October. The bank’s return on equity was 22.3% and the cost-income ratio was 46%.
Our shareholders believe in the continuation of our growth story, and at the extraordinary general meeting on November 1st, they confirmed the decision to issue new shares and conduct a public offering of shares to attract additional capital. With the support of additional capital, we will be able to continue to increase the volume of bank’s business, thereby creating conditions for the growth of the value of our shareholders’ investments. Increasing the share capital, the bank wants to be ready for opportunities that open up during a slowdown in economic growth and have a strong capital base when the economy returns to growth.”
