FINANCIAL REVIEW

A SATISFACTORY RESULT IN A PERIOD WITH MUCH FLUCTUATION The profit for the first half of 2017 was at a level with expectations for the period. The core business showed increased levels of activity for both lending and leasing, and the profit before value adjustments was DKK 282 million. The great shifts in the balance sheet for the period, due to fluctuations in currency rates, had no effect on profit as currency risk is hedged.

EARNINGS AND CAPITAL BASE Net interest income amounted to DKK 340 million for the first half of 2017, which is a decrease of DKK 21 million against the first half of 2016. KommuneKredit has adjusted lending prices throughout the period, to ensure a match with funding costs including derivatives. Thus, the lending margin is kept stable. Both interest income and interest expenses have dropped compared to the same period last year, primarily due to lower exchange rates for USD and GBP.

Administrative expenses rose to DKK 58 million for the first half of 2017 against DKK 54 million for the same period last year. The increase is primarily due to an increase in IT-expenses due to the IT-strategy, which is being implemented across several years. However, the annual administrative expenses continue to remain stable at 0.05 pct. of assets in recent years. Profit for the period before value adjustments decreased to DKK 282 million against DKK 307 million for the same period last year. The development is caused by the decrease in net interest income.

Comprehensive income for the period decreased to DKK 269 million compared to DKK 308 million for the same period last year. Comprehensive income for the period is transferred to equity, which now totals DKK 7,113 million. KommuneKredit’s equity consists in its entirety of retained earnings, meaning that the Common Equity Tier 1 (CET1) capital corresponds to equity. During this period the liquidity resources have been increased to extend the survival horizon beyond 180 days in an extremely stressful liquidity scenario. This has

  INTERIM REPORT 2017

FINANCIAL REVIEW been achieved by increasing the portfolio of secured and liquid securities. The greater portfolio of securities has increased credit risk, which only corresponds partially to a decrease in the value of derivative financial instruments. The increased exposure together with adjusted risk-weighting in accordance with the principles of CRR/ CRD IV has increased the total risk exposure. The result is a capital ratio of 68 pct. against 86 pct. at the end of 2016. KommuneKredit remains highly capitalised with an equity ratio of 3.1 pct. and a strong cash position. LENDING AND LEASE RECEIVABLES Total lending including lease receivables increased by DKK 3 billion to DKK 172 billion in the first half of 2017. Net new lending for the period increased by DKK 5 billion, but is partially equalled by a negative value adjustment of DKK 2 billion on lending. The favourable net new lending is on a level with the first half of 2016 and reflects a continued rising activity in both lending and leasing. The negative value adjustment on lending is due to a slightly higher interest-rate level for Danish interest rates. 26 pct. of gross lending for the period was provided directly to municipalities and regions, while 74 pct. was provided to companies that solve municipal or regional tasks, including water and waste water distribution, the production and distribution of district heating, waste incineration plants with heat utilization etc. FUNDING AND INVESTMENTS Funding – debt to credit institutions and debt securities issued – have increased by DKK 6 billion since year-end 2016. The nominal value of funding has increased by DKK 7 billion, which is partially equalled by a negative value adjustment of DKK 1 billion.

The nominal increase in funding is due to several things including increased lending, the fact that more than half the annual funding target has been met due to advantageous funding terms and a more general wish to improve the cash position. Among other things the first half of the year saw 4 benchmark issues, two in USD and two in EUR. One of these benchmarks was a green bond, which finances more than 100 green lending projects.

ADMINISTRATIVE EXPENSES

The value adjustment on funding is primarily due to a decrease in rates for big funding currencies like USD and GBP. Total investments for the period – receivables from credit institutions as well as the portfolio of securities – have increased by DKK 12 billion to DKK 48 billion. This is primarily due to a nominal increase caused by the fact that the increase in funding more than equals the increase in lending. On the asset side the value of derivative financial instruments has decreased by DKK 10 billion. This is because the currency risk on issuances in foreign currency is fully hedged by derivatives. When currency rates fluctuate, as they have done in the first half of 2017, there are great shifts to the balance sheet but no material effects on profit since currency risk is hedged. EXPECTATIONS FOR 2017 The expectation is still an aggregate net new lending for 2017 of DKK 7 billion and net interest income of approximately DKK 650 million. Profit before value adjustment is still expected to be around DKK 550 million, with an equity ratio of at least 3 pct. depending on the influence of currency rates on assets and liabilities.

For financial instruments with quoted prices in an active market, or for which valuation is based on generally accepted valuation methods with observable market data, there

The applied methods and principles for determining accounting estimates as regards fair value of financial instruments are described in full in the Annual Report for 2016.

In accordance with IFRS 13, financial instruments measured at fair value are to be classified in a fair value hierarchy, ranging from level 1 to 3, depending on how the fair value has been determined and the data on which it is based. Fair value is the value at which a financial asset may be traded between independent counterparties.

Level 3: Unobservable input in which the material input for the valuation is not based on observable input.

Fair value is determined based on the following hierarchy:

There have not been any transfers between the levels in the first half of 2017.

Level 1: Quoted prices in an active market for identical assets or liabilities.

Level 2: Observable input based on quoted prices in an active market for similar assets or liabilities or other valuation methods, in which all material input is based on observable input.

NOTE 4 OFFSETTING The carrying amount of FX-trades is offset, when payments are subject to net settlement. Offsetting constitutes DKK 2,290 million.

KommuneKredit has entered into master netting agreements (ISDA Master Agreement) and related unilateral or bilateral collateral agreements for derivative financial instruments. The received and posted collateral is solely comprised of highly rated bonds.

The value of derivative financial instruments not offset has been limited to the lesser of assets and liabilities, respectively, and is calculated per counterparty. The amount is included in both assets and liabilities.

KommuneKredit has not entered into master netting agreements nor posted or received collateral in relation to lending, lease receivables and debt securities issued. Consequently, these financial instruments have not been included in the table below. The carrying amounts appear from the statement of financial position.

The value of collateral is determined per counterparty and has been limited to the calculated net receivable.
