“Eurobank’s financial results for the third quarter of 2021 represent an important milestone for the Bank and for the Greek banking system. Our NPE ratio stands at 7.3%, the first time a Greek bank has reported a ratio of a number over the past 10 years, sending a strong signal to return to financial normalcy.

Having overcome the problems inherited from the past, we are now focusing all our efforts on strengthening and expanding our activities, while supporting the main objectives of Greece’s economic policy: shifting to a model of sustainable growth and inclusive and return to a premium credit rating. Macroeconomic developments support this target setting. The Greek economy is expected to grow by more than 7% this year and maintain a high rate in 2022. However, it is both important and feasible to keep the growth rate well above our euro area peers at a average of almost 4% for the next five years, making the most of available European funds and the possibility of attracting significant foreign and local private capital for investment.

During the third quarter, Eurobank continued to perform well on all fronts, exceeding our expectations. Profit before core provisions increased and core operating profit increased 61% on lower bad debt provisions. Net income amounted to nearly € 300 million over the nine months of the year, supported by the development of our international activities. Loan disbursements of 5.3 billion euros in Greece for the first nine months of 2021 highlight our shift into growth mode and are expected to continue and accelerate. In 2021, we recorded a total collection of nearly 4 billion euros in private sector deposits. Households and businesses have substantial cash reserves that can fuel consumption and future investments.

Eurobank is the first Greek bank to come out of the NPL problem. We are therefore in the best position and determined to make the most of the strong growth of the Greek economy and improve economic conditions in our core markets, helping our clients take advantage of the bull cycle and helping the communities we serve to achieve sustainable and inclusive prosperity. . ”
