Group adopts a clear stance on Ukraine and Russia

 

 

 

  • Ukraine: material and financial support to employees and their families, continuity of essential banking services for customers, two-thirds of branches open, banking mobile application number 1 in stores.
  • Russia: all new financing to Russian companies stopped since the beginning of the war, as well as all commercial activity in the country.

 

Non-performing risks: low provisioning in Russia (€43m) and Ukraine[1] (€20m)

Conservative provisioning of performing loans:

  • Ukraine: full provisioning of equity risk of €195m (restated in specific items)
  • Russia:  prudent provisioning of performing exposures (€346m)[2]

 

Sharp drop in residual Russian exposures

  • Exposure down -€0.6bn since 31/12/21, -€1.1bn since the start of hostilities.
  • As of 31/03/22, exposure represents:
    • On-shore: €0.7bn
    • Off-shore on-balance sheet: €3.1bn
    • Off-shore off-balance sheet: €0.6bn
  • Almost all maturities have been paid since the beginning of the conflict.

 

Philippe Brassac, Chief Executive Officer of Crédit Agricole S.A.

“Regarding the Russia-Ukraine conflict, the Group chooses cautious provisioning, while the risk on non-performing loans is low.

The first quarter results are solid, with a dynamic activity in all business lines.”

Dominique Lefebvre, Chairman of SAS Rue La Boétie and Chairman of the Crédit Agricole S.A. Board of Directors

“The Group is, yet again, proving the strength and consistency of its model to adjust to various crises. On June 22nd, we will present our medium-term ambitions to address societal transitions.”
