Vienna (pta033/22.07.2022/18:35) - -

The European Central Bank (ECB) has published today the results of the Comprehensive Assessment of Addiko Group, consisting of an Asset Quality Review (AQR) and a Stress Test. The AQR is a prudential exercise providing a point-in-time assessment of the asset quality as of a particular reference date (31 December 2020 in the case of Addiko Group) and the complementing Stress Test simulates how the capital positions would evolve under a baseline scenario and an adverse scenario over a three-year period. All banks which are directly supervised by the ECB are required to undergo a Comprehensive Assessment.

The Comprehensive Assessment shows no capital shortfall, with Addiko Group remaining above the relevant thresholds used in the AQR and the Stress Test. In detail, the AQR led to a theoretical adjustment of the CET1 ratio of merely 15 bps. This is the result of Addiko Group's prudent risk management and continued focus on asset quality. In the Stress Test on the other hand, Addiko Group's stress testing models resulted in a larger theoretical capital depletion, specifically in the adverse scenario. The higher theoretical capital depletion under stress is mostly the reflection of Addiko's high level of prudency in its risk management approach embedded in the models for credit risk parameters estimation.

The detailed results of Addiko Group's Comprehensive Assessment are available on the European Central Banks's banking supervision website: https://www.bankingsupervision.europa.eu/press/pr/date/2022/html/ssm.pr220722~ 509ec12185.en.html
