However, the Bank posted good development in client business and thereby increased its net interest and commission income overall by 10% in a comparison with the year-earlier quarter.

Deducting the negative impact arising from the coronavirus totalling minus €479 million, the Bank would have achieved an operating profit of €202 million.

In spite of the coronavirus effects, the Common Equity Tier 1 ratio at 13.2% remained at a comfortable level and forms a good basis for managing the crisis and the implementation of the Bank’s strategy.

The Bank has made considerable progress on this front.
