Victor Davydik, Acting Chairman of the Executive Board:
«The first half of 2016 demonstrates continuing stagnation in real sector and consumption associated with remaining geopolitical risks and fluctuations in energy prices. At the same time signs of stabilization and possible economic growth in the end of current year and next year become more evident. LOCKO-Bank as an active participant of the economic system demonstrates continuing financial effectiveness as well and always improves its business processes and develops innovative approaches in servicing clients. In 2016 Bank again entered the secured consumer lending market, substantially increased the retail loan portfolio without change of NPL levels and also offered innovative services for legal entities – instant remote opening of current accounts, accelerated issuance of bank guarantees on the entire territory of the Russian Federation. All this provided high profitability of the Bank's activities.
It should be noted that on Annual General Meeting of Shareholders held on 30 June 2016 it was approved the payment of dividends in the total amount of more than RUB 669 mln representing 25.0% of net profit for 2015. As a result, efficiency of shareholders’ investments in equity is estimated on the level of 24.0% from the nominal value of 1 share, which demonstrates the quality of the Bank's business development in general.
With the stabilization of economic situation in 2016-2017 we will continue active development of the key business segments offering new services and products to customers, while maintaining a sufficient level of all major standards and positive financial result".
