Lloyds Bank plc Q3 2021 Interim Management Statement

·23-min read

LONDON, Oct. 28, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --

REVIEW OF PERFORMANCE

Income statement

In the nine months to 30 September 2021, the Group recorded a profit before tax of £5,103 million compared to £620 million in the same period in 2020, representing an increase of £4,483 million largely reflecting the improved economic outlook for the UK in the first nine months of 2021 compared to the deterioration assumed in 2020. Profit after tax was £4,962 million.

Total income decreased by £162 million, or 1 per cent, to £11,072 million in the nine months to 30 September 2021 compared to £11,234 million in the first nine months of 2020; there was a decrease of £77 million in net interest income and a decrease of £85 million in other income.

Net interest income was down £77 million, or 1 per cent, to £8,249 million in the first nine months of 2021 compared to £8,326 million in the first nine months of 2020. The net interest margin reduced slightly reflecting the lower rate environment and change in asset mix. Average interest-earning assets increased driven by growth in the open mortgage book and the impact of government supported loan schemes, partially offset by lower balances in credit cards and motor finance, the effects of the continued optimisation of the Corporate and Institutional book within Commercial Banking and the repayment of revolving credit facilities provided to support Commercial Banking clients during the pandemic.

Other income was £85 million lower at £2,823 million in the nine months to 30 September 2021 compared to £2,908 million in the same period last year. Net fee and commission income was £156 million higher, with increases in card and other transaction-based income, reflecting improved levels of customer activity following the easing of restrictions relating to the pandemic, and increased activity with commercial banking customers driving higher fees. However, other operating income decreased by £246 million due to lower levels of operating lease rental income as a result of the reduced Lex Autolease vehicle fleet size and reduced gains on the disposal of financial assets at fair value through other comprehensive income.

Total operating expenses increased by £93 million to £6,760 million in the first nine months of 2021 compared to £6,667 million in the first nine months of 2020, due to an increase in regulatory provision charges. There was a decrease of £95 million in operating costs reflecting a reduction in depreciation of tangible fixed assets, due to the reduced Lex Autolease vehicle fleet size; gains on disposal of operating lease assets, accounted for within operating expenses, were higher but partially offset by higher restructuring costs, primarily technology research and development costs and severance, as well as higher regulatory programme costs. Staff costs were 4 per cent higher at £2,792 million in the first nine months of 2021 compared to £2,691 million in the first nine months of 2020, reflecting higher charges for variable remuneration and an increase in severance costs.

The charge in respect of regulatory provisions was £188 million higher at £413 million and related to pre-existing programmes. With respect to HBOS Reading, year to date £190 million has been recognised in relation to redress and operational costs. As previously indicated, further significant charges could be required in future quarters, although it is not possible to reliably estimate the potential impact or timings at this stage.

Impairment in the first nine months of the year was a net credit of £791 million, compared to a net charge of £3,947 million in the first nine months of 2020, largely reflecting the improved UK macroeconomic outlook. Credit performance remains strong, with sustained low levels of new to arrears.

The ECL allowance in respect of loans and advances to customers was £4,371 million, a coverage ratio of 0.9 per cent. Observed credit performance remained robust in the period, with the flow of assets into arrears, defaults and write-offs remaining at low levels. The Group has retained the judgemental overlays applied at year end and has continued to offset modelled releases not deemed reflective of underlying risk. The Group's £400 million central overlay has been maintained.

REVIEW OF PERFORMANCE (continued)

The Group recognised a tax expense of £141 million in the period compared to a credit of £307 million in the first nine months of 2020. In March 2021, the UK Government announced its intention to increase the rate of corporation tax from 19 per cent to 25 per cent with effect from 1 April 2023 and this was substantively enacted on 24 May 2021. As a result of this change in tax rate, the Group has recognised a £1,189 million deferred tax credit in the income statement and a £167 million debit within other comprehensive income, increasing the Group's net deferred tax asset by £1,022 million.

Balance sheet

Total assets were £3,179 million higher at £603,118 million at 30 September 2021 compared to £599,939 million at 31 December 2020. Loans and advances to customers decreased by £198 million, to £479,943 million at 30 September 2021 compared to £480,141 million at 31 December 2020. Excluding reverse repurchase agreements, loans and advances to customers, net of impairment allowances, were £7,178 million higher as an increase in the open mortgage book was only partially offset by reductions in the closed mortgage book, motor finance and larger corporate lending; however customer reverse repurchase agreement balances decreased by £7,376 million compared to 31 December 2020. Derivative assets were £2,123 million lower at £6,218 million compared to £8,341 million at 31 December 2020, reflecting reduced volumes and movements in interest and exchange rates over the first nine months of 2021.

Total liabilities were £2,062 million higher at £560,883 million compared to £558,821 million at 31 December 2020. Customer deposits increased by £24,883 million, or 6 per cent, to £459,452 million compared to £434,569 million at 31 December 2020, as a result of growth in retail current and savings accounts and commercial deposits. This increase was partly offset by reductions in deposits from banks, which were £15,238 million lower at £9,759 million, and debt securities in issue, which were £3,932 million lower at £55,361 million, both reflecting the reduced need for wholesale funding following the further growth in customer deposits, and in derivative liabilities which were £3,588 million lower as a result of both reduced volumes and rate movements.

Shareholders' equity increased by £2,767 million to £37,872 million; profit for the period was partly offset by movements in the cash flow hedging reserve and ordinary dividends paid of £1,000 million.

Capital

The Group's Common equity tier 1 (CET1) capital ratio has increased from 15.5 per cent at 31 December 2020 to 16.0 per cent1 at 30 September 2021, primarily as a result of profit for the period and a reduction in risk-weighted assets, partially offset by the foreseeable dividend accrual, a reduction in IFRS 9 transitional relief and pension contributions. The tier 1 capital ratio reduced from 19.8 per cent at 31 December 2020 to 19.0 per cent1 at 30 September 2021 and the total capital ratio reduced from 23.5 per cent at 31 December 2020 to 22.3 per cent1 at 30 September 2021, largely reflecting the annual reduction in transitional limits applied to legacy tier 1 and tier 2 capital instruments in addition to the derecognition of called AT1 and tier 2 instruments, offset in part by the issuance of new AT1 and tier 2 instruments, the increase in CET1 capital and the reduction in risk-weighted assets.

Risk-weighted assets reduced by £4.2 billion to £166.7 billion at 30 September 2021 compared to £170.9 billion at 31 December 2020, primarily driven by continued optimisation activity undertaken in Commercial Banking, partially offset by limited credit migration and balance sheet growth.

The Group's UK leverage ratio of 5.2 per cent1 at 30 September 2021 has reduced from 5.5 per cent at 31 December 2020.

1 Incorporating profits for the quarter that remain subject to formal verification in accordance with the Capital Requirements Regulation.

This document contains certain forward looking statements within the meaning of Section 21E of the US Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, and section 27A of the US Securities Act of 1933, as amended, with respect to the business, strategy, plans and/or results of Lloyds Bank plc together with its subsidiaries (the Lloyds Bank Group) and its current goals and expectations. Statements that are not historical or current facts, including statements about Lloyds Bank Group's or its directors' and/or management's beliefs and expectations, are forward looking statements. Words such as, without limitation, 'believes', 'achieves', 'anticipates', 'estimates', 'expects', 'targets', 'should', 'intends', 'aims', 'projects', 'plans', 'potential', 'will', 'would', 'could', 'considered', 'likely', 'may', 'seek', 'estimate', 'probability', 'goal', 'objective', 'deliver', 'endeavour', 'prospects', 'optimistic' and similar expressions or variations on these expressions are intended to identify forward looking statements. These statements concern or may affect future matters, including but not limited to: projections or expectations of Lloyds Bank Group's future financial position, including profit attributable to shareholders, provisions, economic profit, dividends, capital structure, portfolios, net interest margin, capital ratios, liquidity, risk-weighted assets (RWAs), expenditures or any other financial items or ratios; litigation, regulatory and governmental investigations; Lloyds Bank Group's future financial performance; the level and extent of future impairments and write-downs; Lloyds Bank Group's ESG targets and/or commitments; statements of plans, objectives or goals of Lloyds Bank Group's or its management and other statements that are not historical fact; expectations about the impact of COVID-19; and statements of assumptions underlying such statements. By their nature, forward looking statements involve risk and uncertainty because they relate to events and depend upon circumstances that will or may occur in the future. Factors that could cause actual business, strategy, plans and/or results (including but not limited to the payment of dividends) to differ materially from forward looking statements include, but are not limited to: general economic and business conditions in the UK and internationally; market related risks, trends and developments; fluctuations in interest rates, inflation, exchange rates, stock markets and currencies; volatility in credit markets; any impact of the transition from IBORs to alternative reference rates; the ability to access sufficient sources of capital, liquidity and funding when required; changes to the Lloyds Bank Group's or Lloyds Banking Group plc's credit ratings; the ability to derive cost savings and other benefits including, but without limitation, as a result of any acquisitions, disposals and other strategic transactions; potential changes in dividend policy; the ability to achieve strategic objectives; management and monitoring of conduct risk; exposure to counterparty risk; credit rating risk; instability in the global financial markets, including within the Eurozone, and as a result of uncertainty surrounding the exit by the UK from the European Union (EU) and the effects of the EU-UK Trade and Cooperation Agreement; political instability including as a result of any UK general election and any further possible referendum on Scottish independence; technological changes and risks to the security of IT and operational infrastructure, systems, data and information resulting from increased threat of cyber and other attacks; natural pandemic (including but not limited to the COVID-19 pandemic) and other disasters; inadequate or failed internal or external processes or systems; acts of hostility or terrorism and responses to those acts, or other such events; geopolitical unpredictability; risks relating to sustainability and climate change (and achieving climate change ambitions), including the Lloyds Bank Group's or Lloyds Banking Group plc's ability along with the government and other stakeholders to measure, manage and mitigate the impacts of climate change effectively; changes in laws, regulations, practices and accounting standards or taxation; changes to regulatory capital or liquidity requirements and similar contingencies; the policies and actions of governmental or regulatory authorities or courts together with any resulting impact on the future structure of the Lloyds Bank Group; projected employee numbers and key person risk; the impact of competitive conditions; and exposure to legal, regulatory or competition proceedings, investigations or complaints. A number of these influences and factors are beyond Lloyds Bank Group's control. Please refer to the latest Annual Report on Form 20-F filed by Lloyds Bank plc with the US Securities and Exchange Commission (the SEC), which is available on the SEC's website at www.sec.gov, for a discussion of certain factors and risks. Lloyds Bank plc may also make or disclose written and/or oral forward-looking statements in other written materials and in oral statements made by the directors, officers or employees of Lloyds Bank plc to third parties, including financial analysts. Except as required by any applicable law or regulation, the forward-looking statements contained in this document are made as of today's date, and the Lloyds Bank Group expressly disclaims any obligation or undertaking to release publicly any updates or revisions to any forward looking statements contained in this document whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise. The information, statements and opinions contained in this document do not constitute a public offer under any applicable law or an offer to sell any securities or financial instruments or any advice or recommendation with respect to such securities or financial instruments.
