VÚB: Mid-year profits up 45 percent

THE VÚB group closed the first half of this year with a consolidated net profit of Sk1.9 billion (€48.7 million) according to International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS), which represents a 45-percent growth year-on-year, SITA news agency wrote.

The group ascribed the net profit growth to an increase in operating revenues, which increased by 12 percent year-on-year to Sk5.3 billion (€136 million). Operating revenues were chiefly comprised of net interest revenues of Sk3.4 billion (€87 million) and net fees and provision of Sk1.2 billion (€31 million).

The total assets increased by 9 percent to Sk217 billion (€5.57 billion).

The group includes the VÚB bank, VÚB Asset Management, VÚB Factoring, VÚB Leasing, VÚB Generali (a pension savings management company), Consumer Finance Holding, and Recovery.
