3Q18 Earnings Release

 

The Bank’s 3Q18 net interest income totaled Ps.10.3 billion, 14% or Ps.1.2 billion higher than in 2Q18 and 70% or Ps.4.2 higher YoY.

 

In 3Q18 interest income totaled Ps.16.8 billion, 23% or Ps.3.2 billion higher than in 2Q18 and 90% or Ps.7.9 billion higher than in 3Q17.

 

Income from interest on loans and other financing totaled Ps.12.3 billion, 19% or Ps.2.0 billion higher compared with the previous quarter and 72% or Ps.5.2 billion higher than a year ago.

 

In 3Q18 income from government and private securities increased 39% or Ps.1.3 billion QoQ and 168% or Ps.2.8 billion compared with the same period of last year. 91% of this result is explained by income from government and private securities through other comprehensive income (Central Bank Notes) and the remaining 9% is explained by income of government and private securities at amortized cost. This positive result more than offset the loss sustained by the short dollar position.

 

In 3Q18 Differences in quoted prices of gold and foreign currency decreased Ps.232 million, totaling a Ps.1.2 billion loss, due to the 42% argentine peso depreciation against the US dollar and the Bank’s short dollar position. So far in FY2018 FX losses have been related to:

3Q18 Earnings Release

 

In 3Q18, Banco Macro's effective income tax rate was 30.9%, compared to 28.8% in 2Q18 and 35.6% in 3Q17. The lower effective tax rate is explained by the reduction in statutory tax rates included in the latest tax reform bill approved by Congress (Law 27.430/2017). As of January 2018 statutory tax rate is reduced from 35% to 30% and starting from January 2020 statutory tax rate will be further reduced to 25%.

Solvency

 

Banco Macro continued showing high solvency levels in 3Q18 with an integrated capital (RPC) of Ps.64 billion over a total capital requirement of Ps.19.8 billion. Banco Macro´s excess capital in 3Q18 was 222% or Ps.44.1 billion.

The Bank’s aim is to make the best use of this excess capital.
