1Q18: A Promising start to New Dimension

Laurent Mignon, Natixis Chief Executive Officer, said: “Natixis delivered good performances in the first quarter of 2018 with a solid growth momentum and improving profitability across all business lines. These results are fully consistent with the ambitions of our New Dimension strategic plan and demonstrate that the businesses we have chosen, well diversified and creating value, allow Natixis to perform well amidst volatile markets. Over the last 9 years, such a choice of sustainable growth across these businesses has made Natixis what it is today: a solid and growing company dedicated to its clients and the broader economy. I would like to personally thank all our clients for their trust and confidence and to whom Natixis will keep bringing solutions to support their projects. I would also like to thank all the teams for their hard work and commitment over the last 9 years – they can be proud of what they’ve achieved. New Dimension is now well embarked and I am convinced that François Riahi, the senior management team and all employees will keep on successfully implementing the plan.

Natixis

Natixis reported net revenues at €2.4bn in 1Q18, up +4% YoY and +8% at constant exchange rate. Net revenues generated by the businesses improved +3% YoY to reach €2.3bn (+8% at constant exchange rate), including significant rises from Asset & Wealth Management (+20% at constant exchange rate), Insurance (+8%) and Coface (+29%).

Expenses came out at €1.8bn in 1Q18, up +2% YoY but flat excluding the SRF contribution (€162m in 1Q18 vs. €128m in 1Q17). This translates into a 2pp positive jaws effect (4pp excluding SRF) and a 190bps YoY improvement in the underlying cost/income ratio(1) at 66.0%. Gross operating income, at €663m, rose +16% YoY at constant exchange rate (+8% current) vs. 1Q17. Foreign exchange rate moves (EUR/USD averaged 1.23 in 1Q18 vs. 1.07 in 1Q17) resulted in a €45m negative impact on Natixis’ GOI in 1Q18.

The cost of risk, at €43m in 1Q18, was significantly down compared to a 1Q17 at €70m. Expressed in basis points of loans outstanding (excluding credit institutions), the businesses’ cost of risk worked out to 19bps in 1Q18. Pre-tax profit rose +13% to €632m in 1Q18 vs. 1Q17.

The 1Q18 tax rate reached ~35% (~41% in 1Q17), the first quarter being impacted by IFRIC 21 and the non-deductibility of the SRF and French systemic risk banking tax contributions. The tax rate guidance for 2018 is maintained at around 30%.

Net income (group share), adjusted for IFRIC 21 and excluding exceptional items, came out at €502m in 1Q18, up +15% YoY. Accounting for exceptional items (-€28m impact net of tax in 1Q18) and IFRIC 21 (-€151m impact in 1Q18), the reported net income (group share) increased +15% YoY at €323m in 1Q18.

Natixis delivered a 15.4% underlying RoTE(1) excluding IFRIC 21 impact and the businesses’ underlying RoE(1) reached 16.9%, up +290bps and +190bps respectively vs. 1Q17.

Net revenues from Wealth management were up +12% YoY.

In Asset management, 1Q18 margins excluding performance fees (€65m in 1Q18 vs. €26m in 1Q17) improved +3.6bps YoY to 31bps overall and rose +2.8bps to 15bps in Europe and +1.5bps to 40bps in North America.

Asset management attracted +€6bn of net inflows overall during the quarter, including +€8.1bn of Retail and Wholesale LT net inflows driven by various high fee strategies (average fee rate >60bps(2)) at Harris Associates, Loomis Sayles, H2O, Dorval and DNCA. On the other hand, this dynamic came together with -€2.1bn of Institutional LT net outflows due to the redemption of 3 institutional mandates for ~€5.4bn of AuM, although at a low fee rate of (6bps average). AuM reached €818bn at end-March 2018, of which €406bn in Europe and €399bn in North America. AuM growth this quarter was driven by the combination of net inflows, a -€8bn negative market effect and a -€11bn FX effect. Average AuM at constant exchange rate increased by +10% YoY in Europe (excl. Life insurance) and +14% YoY in North America. Wealth management AuM reached €31.5bn(3).

AWM delivered a +250bps YoY increase in underlying RoE(1) to 14.0% in 1Q18, experienced a significant positive jaws effect, both at constant (10pp) and current (8pp) exchange rate and an underlying cost/income ratio(1) down -570bps.

Net revenues from Corporate & Investment Banking excluding the CVA/DVA desk at €937m were up +5% at constant exchange rate (flat at current) vs. a strong 1Q17, primarily supported by Global finance (+16%) and M&A (+85%).

Global markets revenues were down -4% YoY at constant exchange rate in 1Q18 vs. a historically high 1Q17. At constant exchange rate, FICT revenues were up +1% YoY (-3% current), driven by Rates offsetting lower client activity in Credit and FX. Despite revenues down -15% YoY at constant exchange rate (-17% current), Equity experienced a sound commercial momentum and new clients acquisition in 1Q18 though the closure of the US and UK cash equity desks following the Natixis/Oddo-BHF partnership announcement notably offsets.

Global finance revenues rose +16% YoY at constant exchange rate in 1Q18 (+7% current), driven by Real assets (+76%) and Energy & natural resources (+13%). New loan production was strong (+25% YoY in 1Q18), especially in US Real estate and Infrastructure. Revenues generated by Investment banking and M&A reached €83m in 1Q18, up +6% YoY at constant exchange rate (+2% current).

Appendices

Note on methodology:

The results at 31/03/2018 were examined by the board of directors at their meeting on 17/05/2018.
Figures at 31/03/2018 are presented in accordance with IAS/IFRS accounting standards and IFRS Interpretation Committee (IFRIC) rulings as adopted in the European Union and applicable at this date.

In view of the new strategic plan New dimension, the 2017 quarterly series have been restated for the following changes in business lines organization and in standards for implementation in 4Q17 as if these changes had occurred on 1st January 2017.

The new businesses organization mainly takes into account:

  • The split of Investment Solutions into two new divisions: Insurance and Asset & Wealth Management(1)
  • Within CIB:
    • Global finance and Investment banking(2) are now two separate business lines
    • Creation of Global Securities & Financing (GSF), a joint-venture between FIC and Equity derivatives. The joint-venture includes Securities Financing Group (SFG, previously in FIC) and Equity Finance (previously in Equity). Revenues of GSF are equally split between Equity & FIC
    • Transfer of short term treasury activities run by Treasury & collateral management department from FIC-T in CIB to Financial Management Division in 04/01/2017 in accordance with the French banking law. To ensure comparability, in this presentation CIB refers to CIB including Treasury & collateral management
  • Within SFS, the Payments division is split out of Financial services and reported separately within the SFS business line
  • The removal of the Financial investments division and its inclusion within the Corporate center

The following changes in standards have been included:

  • Increase in capital allocation to our business lines from 10% to 10.5% of the average Basel 3 risk weighted assets
  • Reduction in normative capital remuneration rate to 2% (compared to 3% previously)

Business line performances using Basel 3 standards:

  • The performances of Natixis business lines are presented using Basel 3 standards. Basel 3 risk-weighted assets are based on CRR-CRD4 rules as published on June 26th, 2013 (including the Danish compromise treatment for qualified entities).
  • Natixis’ RoTE is calculated by taking as the numerator net income (group share) excluding DSN interest expenses on preferred shares after tax. Equity capital is average shareholders’ equity group share as defined by IFRS, after payout of dividends, excluding average hybrid debt, average intangible assets and average goodwill.

–            Natixis’ RoE: Results used for calculations are net income (group share), deducting DSN interest expenses on preferred shares after tax. Equity capital is average shareholders’ equity group share as defined by IFRS, after payout of dividends, excluding average hybrid debt, and excluding unrealized or deferred gains and losses recognized in equity (OCI).

  • RoE for business lines is calculated based on normative capital to which are added goodwill and intangible assets for the business line. Normative capital allocation to Natixis’ business lines is carried out on the basis of 10.5% of their average Basel 3 risk-weighted assets. Business lines benefit from remuneration of normative capital allocated to them. By convention, the remuneration rate on normative capital is maintained at 2%.
  1. Asset management includes Private equity (2) including M&A business

Net book value: calculated by taking shareholders’ equity group share, restated for hybrids and capital gains on reclassification of hybrids as equity instruments. Net tangible book value is adjusted for goodwill relating to equity affiliates, restated goodwill and intangible assets as follows:

In €m 31/03/2018
Intangible assets 729
Restatement for Coface minority interest & others (37)
Restated intangible assets 692

In €m 31/03/2018
Goodwill 3,531
Restatement for Coface minority interests (164)
Restatement for AWM deferred tax liability & others (274)
Restated goodwill 3,093

Own senior debt fair-value adjustment: calculated using a discounted cash-flow model, contract by contract, including parameters such as swap curves and revaluation spread (based on the BPCE reoffer curve). Adoption of IFRS 9 standards, on November 22, 2016, authorizing the early application of provisions relating to own credit risk as of FY2016 closing. All impacts since the beginning of the financial year 2016 are recognized in equity, even those that had impacted the income statement in the interim financial statements for March, June and September 2016

Leverage ratio: based on delegated act rules, without phase-in and with the hypothesis of a roll-out for non-eligible subordinated notes under Basel 3 by eligible notes. Repo transactions with central counterparties are offset in accordance with IAS 32 rules without maturity or currency criteria.
