Margus Rink, Chairman of the Management Board of Coop Pank, comments the results:

“Of the first quarter results, the rapid growth of domestic deposits deserves the most attention. In the first quarter of the year, volume of Coop Pank's deposits increased by 91 million euros, of which domestic deposits accounted for more than two thirds, more precisely 65 million euros. Of this, 44 million came from business customers and 21 million from private customers. In addition, we took advantage of the favorable interest rate environment on the international deposit-raising platform Raisin and raised an additional EUR 25 million, reckon with that in the second quarter higher-term term deposits will end on the same platform and we are not planning to extend them.

Growth of the bank's business volumes is also accompanied by better performance indicators for investors. Coop Pank's net profit was almost twice as high as a year ago. Cost / income ratio decreased to 58%, cost of financing decreased to 0.8% and return on equity increased to 11.5%.

To support further growth strategy, the bank issued subordinated bonds in March. This was the first series in 20 million euros subordinated bonds programme of Coop Pank. Initial issue volume of 8 million euros was oversubscribed 6.2 times, which confirms investors' trust and confidence in the bank's growth plans. We decided to increase the volume to 10 million euros and to give preference to our customers and shareholders in the distribution of the bonds, to whom we distributed two thirds of the total volume of the bonds.”
