Sureties & Guarantees business lines lifted revenues 7% yoy in 2Q17, while Leasing expanded by 3% during the same period.

Operating expenses in 2Q17 increased 3% yoy and 1% only excluding the integration of Groupe BPCE payment structures into Natixis.

The provision for credit loss amounted to €14m in 2Q17, down 15% vs. 2Q16 and 33% vs. 1Q17, with the latter period having been temporarily impacted by the migration towards a new recovery system in the Consumer Finance line. In 1H17, the provision for credit loss totaled €35m vs. €29m in 1H16.

Pre-tax profit worked out to €106m in 2Q17 versus €135m in 2Q16. After adjusting for the €31m gain linked to the sale of a building and booked in "Gain or loss on other assets" in 2Q16, pre-tax profit rose 2% yoy in 2Q17.

ROE after tax and excluding IFRIC 21 remained solid at 15.5% in 2Q17 and 14.9% in 1H17.

In addition, on June 26, 2017, Natixis announced the signature of an agreement to acquire 50.04% of the capital of Dalenys (representing 58.09% of its voting rights). This announcement confirms Natixis' strategic ambition to become one of the European leaders in the payments industry, particularly for merchant services. The acquisition of Dalenys strengthens Natixis' range of payment solutions for e-retailers.

The acquisition of Dalenys is part of the creation of the Payment business line at Natixis at the end of 2016, bringing together Natixis Payment Solutions, Natixis Intertitres and S'money, along with the acquisition of Fintech PayPlug, which was finalized in April 2017. It will increase Natixis Payment Solutions' international client base and will pave the way for a rapid European expansion.

Net revenues from Financial Investments contracted 9% yoy in 1H17. The strategy of withdrawing from Corporate Data Solutions activities continues apace, as witnessed by the disposal of Ellisphère in 2Q17, in a deal that generated a €22m gain.

On a constant structure and exchange-rate basis, Coface's sales amounted to €342m in 2Q17 and €687m in 1H17, these levels being relatively unchanged from the year-earlier periods.

In 2Q17, Coface's net revenues advanced 22% on a constant structure and exchange-rate basis (+10% in current terms) and reached €146m. Claims expense was well down, particularly in Asia and North America, with the loss ratio falling to 58.4% in 2Q17 vs. 66.9% in 2Q16.
The cost ratio worked out to 37.1% vs. 30.8% in 2Q16, and reflected the impact of a one-off tax expense in Italy (+1.4pps) in 2Q17.
The combined ratio net of reinsurance eased 2.2pps yoy to 95.5%.

In 1H17, Coface net revenues rose 5% on a constant structure and exchange-rate basis (-4% in current terms) and totaled €276m.
The combined ratio net of reinsurance worked out to 93.7% in 1H17 and included a reduction in the loss ratio to 58.3% (-2.5pps vs. 1H16) , leading to an upgraded guidance for full-year 2017 below 58% (vs. 61% previously).
The cost ratio equated to 35.5% vs. 31.4% in 1H16 (34.4% excluding the public guarantee management business).

Excluding the public guarantee management business - sold on January 1, 2017 - the combined ratio net of reinsurance would have amounted out to 95.2% in 1H16, 1.5pps higher than the 93.7% in 1H17.

Regarding the Fit-to-Win plan, cost savings amounted to €5.4m in 1H17, slightly ahead of objective for the year (€10m).


Appendices

Note on methodology:

The results at 06/30/2017 were examined by the board of directors at their meeting on 08/01/2017.
Figures at 06/30/2017 are presented in accordance with IAS/IFRS accounting standards and IFRS Interpretation Committee (IFRIC) rulings as adopted in the European Union and applicable at this date.


2016 figures are presented pro forma of new intra-pole organizations:

  1. CIB: The 1H16 quarterly series have been restated for the change in CIB organization announced on March 15 2016. The new presentation of businesses within CIB mainly takes into account the creation of a new business line: Global Finance & Investment banking housing all financing businesses (structured & plain vanilla financing), as well as M&A, Equity Capital Markets, and Debt Capital Markets.
  2. SFS: Within Financial services, transfer of the Intertitres activity from Employee savings scheme to the Payments business. Employee savings scheme becomes Employee savings plans. The 2016 series have been restated accordingly to this new organization.

2017 presentation: transfer of short term treasury activities run by Treasury & collateral management department from FIC-T in CIB to Financial Management Division in 04/01/2017 in accordance with the French banking law. To ensure comparability, in this presentation CIB refers to CIB including Treasury & collateral management.

Business line performances using Basel 3 standards:

  • The performances of Natixis business lines are presented using Basel 3 standards. Basel 3 risk-weighted assets are based on CRR-CRD4 rules as published on June 26th, 2013 (including the Danish compromise treatment for qualified entities).
  • Natixis' ROTE is calculated by taking as the numerator net income (group share) excluding DSN interest expenses on preferred shares after tax. Equity capital is average shareholders' equity group share as defined by IFRS, after payout of dividends, excluding average hybrid debt, average intangible assets and average goodwill.
  • Natixis' ROE: results used for calculations are net income (group share), deducting DSN interest expenses on preferred shares after tax. Equity capital is average shareholders' equity group share as defined by IFRS, after payout of dividends, excluding average hybrid debt, and excluding unrealized or deferred gains and losses recognized in equity (OCI).
  • ROE for business lines is calculated based on normative capital to which are added goodwill and intangible assets for the business line. Normative capital allocation to Natixis' business lines is carried out on the basis of 10% of their average Basel 3 risk-weighted assets. Business lines benefit from remuneration of normative capital allocated to them. By convention, the remuneration rate on normative capital is maintained at 3%.

Net book value: calculated by taking shareholders' equity group share, restated for hybrids and capital gains on reclassification of hybrids as equity instruments. Net tangible book value is adjusted for goodwill relating to equity affiliates, restated goodwill and intangible assets as follows:

In €m 06/30/2017
Intangible assets 728

Restated intangible assets 679

Goodwill 3,504
Restatement for Coface minority interest (165)
Restatement for Investment Solutions deferred tax liability & others (491)
Restated goodwill 2,848

Own senior debt fair-value adjustment: calculated using a discounted cash-flow model, contract by contract, including parameters such as swaps curve, and revaluation spread (based on the BPCE reoffer curve). Adoption of IFRS 9 standards, on November 22, 2016, authorizing the early application of provisions relating to own credit risk as of FY2016 closing. All impacts since the beginning of the financial year 2016 are recognized in equity, even those that had impacted the income statement in the interim financial statements for March, June and September 2016.

Leverage ratio: based on delegated act rules, without phase-in except for DTAs on tax-loss carryforwards and with the hypothesis of a roll-out for non-eligible subordinated notes under Basel 3 by eligible notes. Repo transactions with central counterparties are offset in accordance with IAS 32 rules without maturity or currency criteria. Leverage ratio disclosed including the effect of intragroup cancelation - pending ECB authorization.

Exceptional items: figures and comments on this press release are based on Natixis and its businesses' income statements excluding non- operating and/or exceptional items detailed page 3. Natixis and its businesses' income statements including these items are available in the appendix of this press release.
