Jan Andresoo, Chairman of the Management Board, comments on the results:
‘Undoubtedly, 2020 was a difficult year, and the coronavirus crisis also put Inbank to the test. Nevertheless, we can be satisfied with the results.
The fact that we were able to increase sales by 4% in this difficult year is a good message in itself. The sales financing continued to grow, and green financing emerged strongly as a new segment. We also launched a new generation credit card and app as well as expanded our pay later product range.
In total, our loan portfolio grew by 19%, with a significant contribution from the Polish business unit, whose portfolio grew by 128% or 50 million euros year-on-year. I consider 2020 to be a breakthrough year for the Polish unit, and it seems we have finally found the right strategy and our niche: we are competing in the market there with our products and innovation.
We ended the year with a decent profit of 5.9 million euros, despite the additional provisions we made to cover future loan losses due to the coronavirus crisis.
In addition, the share issue at the end of the year gave us clear feedback that Inbank's business model and team are still attractive to investors. To support future growth, we raised 8 million euros of fresh capital through a share issue, which brought the market value of Inbank's equity to 149 million euros.
I look to the future positively. If 2020 was the year of laying the foundations for international growth, then in 2021 we have a clear goal to enter a new market and continue to innovate in the buy now, pay later segment.’
