Stadshypotek’s Interim Report January – June 2018

JANUARY–JUNE 2018 COMPARED WITH JANUARY–JUNE 2017
Stadshypotek’s operating profit increased by 7%, or SEK 406m, to SEK 6,223m (5,817). Net interest income grew by SEK 464m to SEK 6,841m (6,377), mainly due to higher lending volumes to the private ­market in Sweden. Of the net interest income, SEK 465m (409) was attributable to the branch in Norway, SEK 211m (190) to the branch in Finland and SEK 242m (208) to the branch in Denmark. Excluding the branches, net interest income increased by SEK 296m. Net gains/losses on financial transactions decreased to SEK -5m (6).

Expenses increased by SEK 31m to SEK -586m (-555). This increase was mainly attributable to the higher sales compensation paid to the parent company for the services performed by the branch office operations on behalf of Stadshypotek in relation to the administration and sale of mortgage loans. The increase can also be explained by higher costs for, above all, IT development.

Loan losses totalled SEK -14m (2), calculated in accordance with the new reporting standard IFRS 9.
