DNB Group: Basis swap impact in third quarter 2013
In the third quarter of 2013, the DNB Group will record a negative effect of basis swaps connected to funding of NOK 223 million.
For the full year 2012 and the first half of 2013, there were negative effects of basis swaps of approximately NOK 1687 million and NOK 321 million, respectively. Basis swaps are derivative contracts entered into in connection with long-term funding in international capital markets where the relevant currency is converted to Norwegian kroner. These swaps are hedging instruments, and over the lifetime of the derivatives the mark-to-market adjustments will have zero effect. Over time, the accounting effects will thus be reversed.
