KBC books €15 mln profit in Hungary in Q4
Belgium-based KBC Bank booked a net income of €15 mln at its Hungarian unit in Q4 last year. This measure was a year-on-year drop of 6%, while net interest income fell by 7% to €63 mln and net revenue from commissions and fees dropped by 29% to €41 mln, an earnings report published today reveals.
According to the earnings report, impairment narrowed to €13 mln from €43 mln in the base period. The company’s insurance businesses generated a revenue of €14 mln from premiums in the general segment and a further €4 mln in the life segment. Both measures remained unchanged from the same period a year earlier.
KBC noted that the business in Hungary had a €139 mln loss in Q3 as it booked a provision for compensation it expected to pay under borrowers' relief legislation approved in the summer.
