NORD/LB closes first half of the year with profit

  • Thomas Bürkle: “Want to improve the bank’s  profitability, dis-cussing various capitalisation models”

NORD/LB Norddeutsche Landesbank concluded the first half of 2018 with earnings before taxes and restructuring expenses of € 68 million. In the previous year, the corresponding half-year results were characterised by extraordinary income from securities transactions and stood at € 468 million. However, figures from the previous year can only be compared to a limited extent due to the introduction of the new IFRS 9 accounting standard.

“The underlying conditions in which we are operating remain very chal-lenging. Viewed against this background, this is an acceptable result. However, our aspirations are of course much higher. Through our One Bank transformation programme, we are working systematically to im-prove the bank’s profitability”, said Thomas Bürkle, CEO of NORD/LB.

Business Year 2016

As announced in autumn 2016, NORD/LB Norddeutsche Landesbank closed the financial year 2016 with a significant loss. The consolidated loss was € 1,865 million before taxes and € 1,959 million after taxes. The loss was the result of a huge increase in the risk provisioning for ship fi-nancing, especially at subsidiary Bremer Landesbank (BLB). Overall the Group set aside € 2,940 million for ship financing risks in 2016, after € 840 million in the previous year. This was the Bank's reaction to the dramatic deterioration in the global shipping crisis over the course of 2016.

As reading habits have changed a lot these days we enhanced our reporting. The image report is now no longer a part of the Annual Report 2017. Instead we developed a new Annual Review in addition to the Annual Report, where you can get all the information on NORD/LB’s flagship projects, our mindset and our motivation to be our customers’ best bespoke tailors.
