The Board of Directors of Parent Company Banco di Desio e della Brianza S.p.A., which met on 13 March 2014, approved the consolidated financial statements and the draft individual financial statements as at 31 December 2013. The Board resolved to convene the Ordinary and Extraordinary Shareholders’ Meeting in first call on 29 April 2014, 11:30 am, at the Desio offices, and 30 April 2014, at the same time and in the same place, in second call.

Consolidated balance sheet data
Total customer assets under management increased at the end of the year to Euro 18.5 billion, with an overall 2.4% increase of Euro 0.4 million compared to the previous year, attributable to direct deposits (+6.5%), whilst indirect deposits recorded a limited decrease of 0.3%.
Indirect deposits, accounting for around Euro 10.7 billion of total assets, recorded a decrease of less than Euro 0.1 billion (-0.3%) over the twelve month period, attributable to the 2% decline in deposits from institutional customers compared to the previous year’s figure. “Ordinary” customer deposits, on the other hand, rose to about Euro 7.5 billion, corresponding to a 0.4% increase attributable to performance in the assets under management segment (+4.4%), partially counter-balanced by a decline in administered assets (-2.9%).
Despite the slowdown in recourse to credit at system level, the value of loans to ordinary customers as at 31 December 2013 reached around Euro 6.8 billion, exceeding the previous year’s figure by more than Euro 0.2 billion (+3.4%).Vice versa, at year end loans to institutional customers, represented by repo transactions, totalled about Euro 0.1 billion, down Euro 0.2 billion compared to the end of 2012.
The Group’s lending activities therefore resulted in a total for net loans to customers of around Euro 7 billion (+0.1%).
The Group's total financial assets at year end were Euro 1.6 billion, up about Euro 0.4 billion on the total recorded at the end of the previous year (+37.9%), while the net interbank position is in debt for approximately Euro 0.2 billion, in line with the balance at the end of the previous year.
The Group's strong capital solidity is confirmed by the Shareholders’ equity pertaining to the Parent Bank which, including profit for the period, totals Euro 818.7 million as at 31 December 2013 (Euro 821.2 million at the end of 2012), by the regulatory capital of Euro 823.3 million (Euro 827.7 million at the end of 2012) and in the consolidated capital ratios calculated in accordance with the supervisory regulations in force, which show Tier1 and Core Tier1 at 11.8% (previously 12.1%) and a Total capital ratio of13% (previously 13.4%).
On 1 January 2014 the new harmonised regulations for banks and investment companies under the terms of the CRR and the European Directive CRD IV of 26 June 2013, which transpose the standards defined by the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision (the Basel 3 framework) to EU regulations. The Basel Committee’s aim was to improve banking system continuity by - amongst other things - pursuing the objective of raising the quality of regulatory capital to increase banks’ capacity to absorb losses. In particular, the new regulations strengthen the importance of ordinary shares in the composition of own funds and extend and harmonise the list of items to be deducted and prudential adjustments.
An assessment of the Group’s capital adequacy in accordance with the new criteria shows that the ratio between common equity and weighted assets is 12.14%.
Consolidated income statement data
The year closed with a net loss pertaining to the Parent Bank of Euro 5 million, affected by the heavier impact of adjustments to loans (which rose from Euro 89.5 million to Euro 136.9 million), allocations to the employees’ solidarity fund of Euro 16.8 million following implementation of the Group Business Plan 2013-2015 and the loss of Euro 9.2 million recorded by the Swiss subsidiary Credito Privato Commerciale S.A. (in liquidation).
The breakdown and performance of the main reclassified Income Statement items are summarised as follows:
The revenue items related to operations recorded an increase of 4.5% compared with the previous year, rising to Euro 366.8 million, with an increase of Euro 15.7 million. The increase is mainly attributable to the net profits/(losses) on trading, hedging and disposal/repurchase of receivables, financial assets/liabilities at fair value through profit or loss for Euro 10.3 million (+33.4%), net commissions for Euro 7.4 million (+7.0%) and other operating income/expenses for Euro 3.2 million (+23.1%), of which Euro 1.3 million capital gains on disposal of the property of the subsidiary Brianfid-Lux S.A. (in liquidation). Also recording an increase were profit from investments in associates for Euro 0.7 million, associated with the share of profit of Chiara Assicurazioni S.p.A., which became an associate during the year, and dividends and similar revenues for Euro 0.1 million. Vice versa net interest income, which at Euro 194.3 million recorded a decrease of about Euro 6 million, equal to 3% of the previous year’s figure.
Operating charges, which include personnel expenses, other administrative expenses and net adjustments to property, plant and equipment and intangible assets, overall show a balance of approximately Euro 211.5 million, with a 4.5% drop of about Euro 12.2 million compared to the previous year. The recovery is largely attributable to personnel expenses which, net of one-off expenses among the total use of funds in implementation of the Group Business Plan 2013-2015 amounting to Euro 16.8 million and reclassified to profits/(losses) after taxes from non-recurring operations, decreased by Euro 9.1 million (-6.4%). The other two cost items also show a decrease, respectively other administrative expenses by Euro 1.4 million (-2.1%) and net adjustments to property, plant and equipment and intangible assets by Euro 1.6 million (-14.9%).
The operating margin at the end of the period consequently amounted to Euro 155.3 million which, compared to the Euro 127.4 million of the previous year, shows a 21.9% growth..
Operating profit (loss) after tax
The weight of the net adjustments for impairment of loans equal to Euro 136.9 million, with higher adjustments for Euro 47.4 million compared to 2012, the net allocations to provisions for risks and charges of Euro 10.9 million, up Euro 7.4 million on the comparison period, losses on disposal or repurchase of loans for Euro 1.4 million, the net adjustments for impairment of financial assets available for sale of Euro 0.6 million, net adjustments for impairment of other financial transactions of Euro 1.7 million and taxes on income from continuing operations of Euro 10.3 million, down Euro 6.3 million, result in a loss after taxes from continuing operations of Euro 6.5 million, compared to the profit of Euro 14.9 million recorded in the previous year (-143.9%).
Profit from non-recurring operations after tax
The profit from non-recurring operations after tax of Euro 1.6 million comprises the capital gains realised from the price adjustment following disposal by the Parent Bank at the end of 2012 of its remaining 30% investment in the former associate Chiara Vita S.p.A. for Euro 7.2 million, the gain realised on disposal - again by the Parent Bank - of the controlling interest in Chiara Assicurazioni S.p.A. (from 66.66% to 32.66%) for Euro 4.6 million, together with the positive effects on the income statement from the change in consolidation method for that company, which became an associate, for about Euro 1.3 million. In addition, the impact of estimated one-off expenses was recorded against the total use of funds in implementation of the Group Business Plan 2013-2015, which amounted to Euro 16.8 million before taxes, and the contribution of taxes on profit from non-recurring operations for a total of Euro 5.3 million, composed of the tax effect on these one-off expenses, on capital gains realised as referred to above and as a result of tax redemption pursuant to Italian Law Decree 185/2008 (for the subsidiary Banco Desio Lazio S.p.A.) and goodwill included in the book value of the investment in FIDES S.p.A. and recognised to the consolidated financial statements of the Group for about Euro 0.9 million.
Parent Company Profit (Loss) for the period
The sum of the operating loss after tax from continuing operations, the profit from non-recurring operations after tax and the loss pertaining to minority interests of Euro 0.1 million, results in 2013 closing with a loss pertaining to the Parent Bank of Euro 5 million, compared to a profit of Euro 20.2 million recorded in the previous year.
In this difficult and persisting negative economic and financial scenario, once again in 2013 the Group has managed to keep the structure of its distribution network unchanged. The network comprises 185 branches, of which 164 Banco di Desio e della Brianza S.p.A. and 21 the subsidiary Banco Desio Lazio S.p.A.
As at 31 December 2013, the Group had a workforce of 1,760 employees, with a decrease of 78, 4.2% less than the end of the previous year, mainly attributable to the exit from the Group of Chiara Assicurazioni S.p.A. and the fact that the subsidiaries Credito Privato Commerciale S.A. and Brianfid-Lux S.A. are in liquidation.
