Commercial Bank «International Bank of Development»

CJSC AK&M Rating Agency assigned the ‘A’ credit rating with a stable outlook as per the national scale to CJSC CB International Bank of Development (license no. 2704).


The ‘A’ rating indicates that CJSC CB International Bank of Development is a highly reliable borrower. Risk of a delay in meeting liabilities is relatively low, restructuring risk for a loan / part of a loan is minimal.

The rating of CJSC CB International Bank of Development is essentially supported by the good capital adequacy of the Bank, the high margin and operating profitability, the high quality of the credit portfolio.

As of August 1, 2012, the Bank’s equity capital amounted to RUB 1,286,087 thousand including the authorized capital of RUB 870,000 thousand. The share of the Bank’s authorized capital in its equity capital is 67.6%, CAR being 14.2%. The Bank’s capital rose by RUB 198,220 thousand (or 18.2%) since the start of the year. The main driver for the equity capital growth is the Bank’s retained profit.

The Bank’s operating margin, ROA and ROE are high. In H1 2012, the Bank earned a pre-tax profit in the amount of RUB 209.015 thousand. As of July 1, 2012, return on equity and return on assets equaled 19.3% and 2.9%, respectively, both higher than the average values in Russia’s banking sector as of the same date (ROE was 17.7%, ROA was 2.3%).

Class 1 loans account for more than 50% of the Bank’s credit portfolio. The share of doubtful, problem and non-performing loans is approximately 14%. The relative weight of loans in arrears as of July 1, 2012 was 6.9%, which is above the average value in Russia’s banking sector (4.0% as of the same date). The bank has built sufficient provisions for possible loan losses (approximately 9.0% of the total loan portfolio as of July 1, 2012).

The rating of CJSC CB International Bank of Development is restricted by the high relative weight of investments in securities in total assets, the low share of loan interest incomes in the structure of incomes, the plateauing amount of funds placed by enterprises and organizations and their decreasing share in the Bank’s liabilities.

The relative weight of net investments in securities in the Bank’s assets as of July 1, 2012 was 61.8%, net lending receivables being the second largest asset (31.5%). The relative weight of other assets constituting the Bank’s asset portfolio is insignificant. The predominance of investments in securities in the Bank’s assets has been detected since mid-2011, with a conservative approach towards building the portfolio of securities.

The share of loan interest incomes in the Bank’s income structure is low. In the first half year 2012, incomes on the loans granted by the Bank accounted for 12.6% of the Bank’s combined earnings. During this period, income from debt investments (except for notes) accounted for 21.4%, income from the purchase and sale / revaluation of foreign currencies for 42.1%, income from recovery of provisions for possible losses for 16.3% of the Bank’s total incomes.

The amount of funds placed by legal entities in the first half year 2012 failed to rise. For six months, it increased by a mere 0.2% reaching RUB 2,308,392 thousand as of July 1, 2012: The monthly behavior of this indicator lacks stability, the balance sometimes on the rise, sometimes looking down.
