Priit Põldoja, Chairman of the Management Board, comments on the results:
‘During the third quarter, Inbank continued to improve financial performance with strong income growth and continued sales growth. Inbank’s total quarterly income reached a record of 15.6 million euros, growing 24% year-on-year.
Since Q4 2021, when interest rates started to rise in Poland, Inbank has had to navigate a challenging environment. Our funding cost has increased by 3% during the last 24 months. At the same time, we have been able to reprice our portfolio by 2%, which has put pressure on our margins. However, we have been able to deliver record sales in all markets during these challenging times and kept our credit costs under control. As a result, Inbank profits are on the rise again with Q3 profit reaching 2.9 million euros. Quarterly ROE improved to 10.6%.
During the last quarter, our wholly owned subsidiary Inbank Rent started to offer innovative subscription services in Estonia. In September we signed a cooperation agreement with Apple premium reseller iDeal to launch a subscription service for Apple products. We expect the co-operation with Apple and other electronics retailers to roll out to all our markets during the rest of the year and in 2024.
Inbank’s business model is built on winning in the marketplace through building better products and services for our partners and customers. This strategy has been tested over the last 2 years in the higher interest rate environment. While focused on the profitability of our underlying business model, we have continued to invest in our capabilities to build a future proof international organization while continuing to be focused on our strategy of building a European embedded finance platform. ’
