The Ukrainian banking system remains remarkably resilient amidst the
prevailing complex conditions in the country. The aggregate adequacy ratio of
domestic banks stood at 23.7% at the end of the first half, well above the
minimum permissible threshold of 10%. Among these financial institutions, The
Family Bank, categorized as a small-scale financial entity, exhibited the
highest capital adequacy ratio. Conversely, the state-owned UkrEximBank
recorded the lowest capital adequacy ratio of 7.8% as of July 1, signaling the
imperative need for the bank’s recapitalization.
Notably, while official publications of banks’ financial indicators for
the first half are still pending, based on proprietary capital data, Raiffeisen
Bank achieved a calculated net profit of UAH 3.7bn for January-June,
translating to 6.0 kopecks per share. Presently, the trend indicates a gradual
decline in the profitability of Raiffeisen Bank, with Q1 profit at UAH 2.1bn
and Q2 profit at UAH 1.6bn. In the previous week, Raiffeisen Bank (BAVL) shares
experienced a 7.1% decrease, settling at 26 kopecks per share. Meanwhile,
CentEnergo (CEEN) shares suffered even greater losses, plummeting by 20% to a
price of 4.57 UAH per share.
Shifting to the Warsaw Stock Exchange, shares of Agroton (AGT) witnessed
a decline of 7.7%, falling to PLN 2.88. Agroton lost control of its land bank
in the Lugansk region due to occupation. Before the full-scale russian
invasion, Agroton’s land bank encompassed approximately 110,000 hectares in the
Lugansk and Kharkiv regions.
