Earnings Report 3Q19

Key Highlights

'The 3Q19 was in line with our expectations. The steady upward trend followed by our customer income, which was mainly influenced increasing fee-based revenues and the excellent performance of some of our subsidiaries, once again drove operating revenues. This performance is particularly remarkable in light of a backdrop characterized by lower than expected inflation, a sharp decrease in nominal and real interest rates and, furthermore, flattened yield curves. Some of these factors, in conjunction with below trend GDP growth, are expected to remain over the rest of 2019 and most of 2020, which definitely poses a hurdle for the banking industry as a whole.

In order to cope with this scenario, we have continued to deploy our main strategic priorities that pursue to increasing efficiency and improving service models through and deep commitment to digital transformation. For that reason, we have undertaken a front-to-back review of processes, which has translated into diverse automation and streamlining initiatives. Also, we keep focused on enhancing customer experience by putting at disposal of our clients a wide array of upgraded remote solutions. We believe this strategy will certainly generate the capabilities we need to face a more constrained economic environment.

I cannot miss the opportunity to talk about the aftermaths of the events occurred in Chile in the last few weeks. By mid- October, we witnessed diverse expressions of Chilean people demonstrating their dissatisfaction with current social welfare policies. During the upheavals, nine of our branches and 89 ATMs suffered severe damages. However, we were able to ensure an adequate level of service to our customers by means of a more intensive use of our digital channels.

We are optimistic that Chilean authorities will be able to cope with this challenge. The current administration has proposed a bundle of measures in order to address most urgent demands. Also, we believe the tradition in terms of, responsible macroeconomic policies, political stability and strong institutions by which Chile has been globally praised should ensure an organized process of discussion on all the social changes the country needs to address in order to keep on promoting economic development'.

Annual GDP growth improved during the 3Q19. According to monthy Imacec figures, the overall output increased 3.3%, well above the 1.9% posted in the previous quarter. This surge was a consequence of higher dynamism in the margin (GDP rose 0.7% on a sequential basis, or 2.9% annualized), and the weak comparison base from a year ago. Regardless of this seemingly positive backdrop, we are aware of the effect that nation-wide demonstrations and civil unrest witnessed during October will have on economic growth over next few months.

Despite the civil unrest, which is expected to be soothed by an array of measures proposed by the administration, such as an increase in the minimal guaranteed pension and monthly income, the freeze in transportation and energy fares and a cabinet reshuffle; it is worth highlighting the resilience shown by the Chilean economy. In fact, while economic growth has slowed down in most of countries, Chile has remained as one of the countries with most solid growth fundamentals. This positive comparison is highly attributable to the Chile's policy framework, which is based on an inflation target regime and flexible exchange rates. Amidst this scenario, the Central Bank has reduced the overnight rate by 125 bp. this year, achieving the lowest level in both nominal and real terms, not only within the region, but also among emerging economies. Additionally, the multilateral weakening in the Chilean peso -produced by lower interest rates- is supporting the domestic demand.

The headline CPI has remained well below the central bank target (3.0%) since late 2016. In September, this indicator fell to 2.1% YoY, while the core measure, which excludes food and energy prices, stood at 2.3% YoY. The non-tradable index, which is more correlated with the evolution of domestic activity, declined to 2.6%. As for the labor market,

(12m% change as of Sep19, in real terms)

the unemployment rate has remained stable this year, standing at 7.0% in September, in a context where real wages continue expanding nearly 2.5% YoY, in line with the rate observed in previous quarters. In this environment, the Central Bank cut the interest rate by 25 bp. in the October meeting, leaving room for further cuts in the future. Therefore, the Central Bank is expected to reduce the reference rate to 1.5% over the next months.

In terms of growth, according to the expectations survey conducted by the Central Bank, the local economy is expected to perform better in 2020. Analysts expect GDP to improve from 2.5% this year to 3.0% in 2020 while forecasting a slight rise in CPI, from 2.7% to 2.9% over the same period. Nonetheless, we are aware about a potential downward bias in these estimates, due to both external risks and the recent events of social unrest occurred in Chile.

Regarding the banking industry, it posted a 7.2% annual real growth in total loans as of Sep19, which outperformed the 12-month advance posted as of Jun19 by ~1.5%. This change was notoriously influenced by the performance of mortgage loans rising 8.0% real, which have been boosted by an increased dynamism in demand -strengthened in the 3Q19, according to the credit survey conducted by the Chilean Central Bank- and the sharp drop in interest rates. To a lesser extent, commercial loans also grew significantly by recording an annual real growth of 7.1%, which positively compares to the figure posted a year ago. On the other hand, consumer loans showed a tepid QoQ decline, from 6.3% to 6.2%, in 12-month real growth.

In regards to net income, the industry posted a bottom line of Ch$2,184.0 Bn., which represented an annual increase of 18.8% when compared to a year earlier. This performance was explained by a YoY increase of Ch$1,350.1 Bn. in operating revenues, which would mainly be concentrated in non-treasury income. This positive change was partly offset by an increase in OpEx (Ch$495.6 Bn.), particularly in administrative expenses, and loan loss provisions (Ch$359.2 Bn.) due to the change in the group-based risk matrix for commercial loans that significantly affected some of our major peers. Lastly, the industry also recorded an increment of Ch$151.7 Bn. in income tax.

In the 3Q19 revenues improved Ch$37.1 Bn. or 8.0% YoY by totalling Ch$501.9 Bn. Certainly, the top line has leveraged on solid customer income growth of Ch$47.9 Bn. or 13.1% YoY, behavior that largely offset a YoY dwindle of Ch$10.8 Bn. in by non-customer income.

Main effects explaining these changes were, as follows:

  • Fee income increasing Ch$30.8 Bn. YoY supported by higher revenues from: (i) insurance brokerage by Ch$18.0 Bn. YoY, mostly explained by the recognition ofup-front fees received from the 15- year joint venture started recently and a YoY growth of 18.7% in written premiums, (ii) transactional services fees growing Ch$10.3 Bn. YoY based on both credits cards (Ch$5.0 Bn.) and ATM fees (Ch$4.8 Bn.), and (iii) higher fees from mutual funds management by Ch$3.2 Bn. YoY given a 14.7% advance in AUM.
  • Higher income from loans by Ch$11.5 Bn. YoY backed by a 8.6% YoY expansion in average loan balances, mainly focused on the retail banking segment. The segment posted a 11.3% YoY hike in average loan balances that encloses a 13.5% YoY growth in residential mortgage loans.
  • Higher revenues of roughly Ch$9.4 Bn. YoY owing to the positive impact of a 7.4% depreciation of Ch$ (as compared to the 0.5% depreciation in the 3Q18) on the USD asset position hedging our exposure toUSD-denominated fee expenses and loan loss allowances.
  • Better net financial income from our subsidiaries climbing Ch$7.0 Bn. in the 3Q19. This advance is mainly attributable to the excellent performance of our securities brokerage subsidiary, supported by higher revenues fromfixed-income brokerage.
  • An increase of Ch$3.9 Bn. or 6.4% YoY in the contribution of DDAs due to both average balances growing 6.9% YoY this quarter and higher foreign interest rates.
  • Higher income from Trading and Structuring by approximately Ch$5.3 Bn. YoY. Whereas our Trading desk benefited from favourable shifts in interest rates and inflation, the Structuring desk settled specific transactions with corporate customers.

The factors mentioned above were partially counterbalanced by:

  • Lower contribution of our UF net asset exposure by Ch$9.3 Bn., as a result of the 0.52% UF increment in the 3Q19, slightly lower than the 0.73% UF increment shown in the 3Q18.
  • A negative YoY impact of Ch$8.1 in Counterparty Value Adjustment (CVA) for derivatives Bn. due to higher probabilities of default (PDs).
  • A YoY decline in other operating income by Ch$7.8 Bn. YoY largely due to the release ofnon-credit related contingency allowances during the 3Q18, pulling the comparison base down.

On a YTD basis, revenues increased from Ch$1367.1 Bn. to Ch$1,484.8 Bn. This change was largely boosted by customer income improving Ch$121.9 Bn. or 11.3% YoY, which in turn was steered by:

  1. higher fee income by Ch$67.2 Bn. YoY from insurance brokerage and transactional services, (ii) income from loans surging Ch$30.0 Bn. YoY based on average balances growing 9.2% YoY, (iii) a YoY growth of Ch$18.6 Bn. (or 10.3%) in the contribution of DDAs to our funding given increased average balances (5.5% YoY) and higher foreign interest rates, (iv) a soared top line of our subsidiaries by Ch$18.6 Bn. mainly concentrated in an outperforming year in the equity and fixed- income businesses of our Securities Brokerage subsidiary, and (v) higher income from Trading, AFS and Structuring of roughly Ch$13.3 Bn. due to the sharp decrease in local interest rates and derivative transactions carried out by some clients conducted in 2019, respectively. All the above allowed us to deal with: (i) higher CVA charges for derivatives by nearly Ch$14.3 Bn. YoY, (ii) the negative inflation effect of Ch$10.2 Bn. given lower UF variation as compared to a year earlier(-34 bp. app.), and (iii) a decline of Ch$2.4 Bn. in FX impact on our USD hedging position owing to lower Ch$ depreciation as compared to a year ago.

Loan loss provisions posted a YoY decrease of Ch$6.6 Bn. (equivalent to 6.9%) by totaling Ch$88.7 Bn. in the 3Q19. The retail banking segment was the main driver for this reduction, decreasing Ch$18.7 Bn. YoY, whereas risk expenses of the wholesale banking segment had an increment of Ch$12.1 Bn. YoY. Overall, due to the low basis for comparison, the annual change in the consolidated amount of loan loss provisions was mainly influenced by non-recurrent expenses that took place in both this quarter and the 3Q18. Altogether, the decrease in loan loss provisions may be summarized, as follows:

  • A net YoY decrease of Ch$31.8 Bn. in loan loss provisions associated with the implementation of new credit risk models, focused on the retail banking segment, in both the 3Q19 and the 3Q18, which posed a high comparison base for this quarter.

This effect was partly counterbalanced by:

An increment of Ch$8.6 Bn. in loan loss provisions as a result of loan

growth (volume and mix effects altogether) that was certainly

concentrated in retail banking, which explained Ch$8.9 Bn. of the

total change. These figures reflect the 8.6% YoY growth in total

average loan balances, principally fostered by an 11.3% YoY rise in

average balances managed by the retail banking segment.

The implementation of a standardized group-based risk matrix for

commercial loans. This was a change required by the regulator and

was concentrated in the retail banking segment (SMEs), with an

impact of Ch$7.7 Bn. in loan loss provisions in the 3Q19. It is worth

mentioning that this effect was substantially below the peers'

average.

A negative FX impact on USD-denominated loan loss allowances by

Ch$6.6 Bn. YoY. This effect relied on the 7.4% depreciation of the

Ch$ in the 3Q19, which significantly outreached the 0.5%

depreciation seen in the 3Q18.

A tepid net credit quality deterioration of Ch$2.3 Bn. explained by: (i)

the wholesale banking segment posting Ch$6.4 Bn. YoY increase

due to a better than expected credit behaviour of a specific customer

in the 3Q18, and (ii) the retail banking segment improving its

recurrent deterioration by Ch$4.1 Bn.

In line with the decrease in loan loss provisions and notwithstanding the loan book expansion, our LLPs to average loans ratio decreased 20 bp. YoY to 1.23% in the 3Q19, which positively compares to the 1.41% reached by the industry.

On a YTD basis, our LLPs increased Ch$25.8 Bn. YoY, mainly due to:

  • A net increase of Ch$35.4 Bn. explained bynon-recurrent factors, such as: (i) lower than expected NPLs in the 4Q18, which caused an increment in LLPs YTD, given the definition of our risk models, (ii) the entry of new lending businesses in the Chilean banking industry in Dec18 and the addition of indebtedness information to our provisioning models, and (iii) the adoption of a standardized group- based risk matrix for commercial loans in the 3Q19.
  • Loan growth (volume and mix effects in conjunction), focused on the retail banking segment, as a consequence of an expansion of 11.0% YoY in average loan balances managed by this segment. This effect resulted in higher loan loss provisions by Ch$23.7 Bn. YoY.

The above was partly offset by a net decrease of Ch$31.8 Bn. in loan loss provisions due to changes in risk models in the 3Q18 and the 3Q19, as explained earlier, which joined to changes in FX explaining Ch$1.6 Bn. YoY.

Based on the aforesaid, the LLPs ratio slightly increased from 1.13% as of Sep18 to 1.15% as of Sep19, which continued to outperform the industry while being below our mid-term levels.

Operating expenses posted a YoY expansion of Ch$10.2 Bn. or 4.8% during the 3Q19. On a QoQ basis, however, the Ch$221.8 Bn. recorded in the 3Q19 positively compares to the Ch$231.7 Bn. posted in the 2Q19, representing a 4.3% sequential decrease.

The main factors explaining the YoY increase in our cost base were:

  • A YoY rise of Ch$7.8 Bn. in depreciations and amortizations mainly explained by a Ch$6.5 Bn. increase due to the adoption of IFRS 16 in Jan2019, under which rental expenses are accounted as an asset in use subject to amortization and depreciation, instead of being accounted as administrative expenses. Adjusting by this effect, depreciations and amortizations would have increased only Ch$1.3 Bn, YoY, mostly explained by upgrades in cybersecurity protocols, internal IT developments and ATM-related expenses.
  • An increase of Ch$1.7 Bn. in administrative expenses, representing an increment of 2.1% when compared to the 3Q19. This behaviour was mainly influenced by: (i) a YoY rise of Ch$5.7 Bn. in external advisory associated with the development of diverse projects that are part of our initiatives of digital transformation and efficiency, (ii) an expansion of Ch$3.5 Bn. in IT and Communication expenses related to software licencing and IT support, and (iii) higher fixed- assets expenses of Ch$1.7 Bn. in the 3Q19, explained by both ATMs maintenance due to the partnership with a local retailer that resulted in a 26% YoY increase in devices in the 3Q19. These effects were partly offset by: (i) the opposite accounting effect mentioned above (IFRS16) for an amount of Ch$6.9 Bn. YoY, and (ii) lower general administrative expenses by Ch$2.9 Bn. YoY.
  • Other operating expenses growing Ch$1.4 Bn. YoY, mainly as a result of higher loan loss allowances on cross border loans of Ch$2.1 Bn., given the higher Ch$ depreciation in the 3Q19 as compared to the 3Q18. This effect took place in conjunction with higher regulatorywrite-offs related to assets received lieu of payment by Ch$1.2 Bn.

All these factors were partly counterbalanced by a Ch$0.9 Bn. YoY decrease in personnel expenses mainly explained by: (i) a YoY decline of Ch$7.1 Bn. in bonuses and incentives due to a high basis for comparison explained by a one-time disbursement of Ch$6.9 Bn. in the 3Q18 related to the end of a collective bargaining process with some of our unions, (ii) higher severance payments (Ch$3.8 Bn. YoY) in the 3Q19, and (iii) an increment in salaries (Ch$2.0 Bn.) explained by the recognition of inflation effect.

Given an expansion in OpEx below the increase in revenues, our efficiency ratio improved from 45.5% in the 3Q18 to 44.2% in the 3Q19, (133 bp. YoY), well below the figure posted by the industry.

On a YTD basis, OpEx amounted to Ch$674.3 Bn., which represents 7.5% YoY increase, explained by: (i) higher depreciations and amortizations by Ch$24.0 Bn. (Ch$3.6 Bn. when adjusting by IFRS16 accounting effect), (ii) personnel expenses rising Ch$18.1 Bn. YoY, mainly as a consequence of an increase in both salaries (inflation effect and benefits related to the collective bargaining process) and severance payments, (iii) an expansion of Ch$5.8 Bn. in administrative expenses (Ch$25.4 Bn. when adjusting by IFRS16), attributable to IT, cybersecurity, external advisory and outsourced services.

Our income before income tax amounted to Ch$193.0 Bn. in the 3Q19, which is equivalent to a strong annual increase of 20.0% when compared to the Ch$160.8 Bn. posted in the 3Q18. Aligned with the trend we have seen over the last quarters, the major contribution to this result came from our Retail Banking segment explaining a 50.9%. The remaining amount was mainly explained by the Wholesale Banking segment representing a 39.0% and, to a lesser degree, our subsidiaries explaining a 12.1%.

The main drivers supporting the performance of each segment were:

(ii) greater income from loans explained by a significant growth in

increased the basis for comparison. These effects were partly

offset by OpEx increasing Ch$9.3 Bn. due to the implementation

of certain commercial projects such as the enlargement of our

ATM network.

Regarding the Wholesale Banking segment, it showed a decline

of Ch$10.2 Bn. YoY in pre-tax income, decreasing from Ch$85.7

Bn. in the 3Q18 to Ch$75.2 Bn. in the 3Q19. The main factor

behind this performance was a YoY increase in loan loss

provisions of Ch$12.0 Bn. as a result of: (i) positive credit

behavior of a specific wholesale customer in the 3Q18, and (ii) a

negative FX impact of a higher Ch$ depreciation in the 3Q19 as

compared to the 3Q18 on the USD asset position allocated to this

segment. This negative effect was partly counterbalanced by

lower OpEx of Ch$1.1 Bn. concentrated in general expenses.

Revenues remained flat in this segment during this quarter. Even

though core revenues posted an increase YoY due to an

expansion in the loan book and DDAs, these positive factors were

offset by lower ALM income and UF exposure contribution

allocated to this segment, which underperformed last year figures.

In the 3Q19, our Subsidiaries recorded an increase of Ch$5.5 Bn.

YoY in income before income tax, equivalent to a rise of 30.8%.

This movement was mainly explained by: (i) a YoY increment in

revenues of our Securities Brokerage subsidiary as a result of the

effect of lower interest rates on its fixed-income portfolio, and (ii)

higher revenues from our Mutual Funds subsidiary given a 14.7%

YoY growth in AUM. These effects were partly offset by lower

pre-tax income from our Investment Banking subsidiary,

explained by business seasonality.

Finally, our Treasury segment recorded a negative pre-tax

income of Ch$3.9 Bn. in the 3Q19, which was Ch$8.2 Bn. below

the figure posted in the 3Q18. The main reason that explained

this decline was a higher charge of CVA for derivatives due to

increased PDs (higher risk premiums) by nearly Ch$8.1 Bn. YoY.

Nonetheless, excluding CVA charges, our Treasury posted a YoY

increase of Ch$2.7 Bn. in revenues from Trading and AFS

management due to a sharp decrease in interest rates.

The loan portfolio amounted to Ch$29,564 Bn. as of September 30, 2019, which denotes a 9.3% annual increase while representing the higher annual expansion this year. On a QoQ the loan book increased 2.5% that is equivalent to a 10.5% increment on an annual basis. The upward trend was undoubtedly steered by a significant boost in mortgage loans and solid growth in commercial loans. When looking at every segment, the dynamics for loan growth are the following:

In the Retail Banking segment total loans amounted to Ch$18,597 Bn., which entails an 11.6% annual growth mainly fostered by:

  • An increase of 11.5% YoY in personal banking loans (including consumer finance). Main driver for this performance has to do with the dynamism shown by residential mortgage loans, which recorded 13.5% annual expansion (4.0% QoQ), due to both long- term interest rates that have continued to drop to unseen lows and a strong demand for housing. The momentum evidenced by mortgage loans is aligned with findings shown by the credit survey conducted by the Central Bank, which supports a solid demand.
    Instead, consumer loans have continued to show a tempered growth by advancing 5.4% YoY to reach Ch$4,501 Bn. as of September 30, 2019. Nevertheless, demand for loans persists as evidenced by the credit survey mentioned above.
  • Loans granted to SMEs keep on growing steadily atdouble-digit rates by posting a 12.0% annual increase supported by record quarterly loan origination of Ch$770 Bn. In our view, the pre- approved program for SMEs has been crucial to maintain this tendency by addressing customers' needs timely.

The Wholesale Banking segment showed positive figures in the 3Q19, recording expansions of 5.6% YoY and 4.0% QoQ.

As in the previous report, the YoY increase was concentrated in

Corporate Banking, mainly as a consequence of:

A solid trend in the Multinational and Infrastructure banking

unit, which continued to grow persistently by reaching total

loan balances of Ch$1,043 Bn. in the 3Q19. Loans granted by

this unit boosted 19.1% YoY and 15.0%.QoQ, figures that

were backed by a quarterly loan origination of approximately

To a lesser extent, other corporate banking units experienced

an upsurge as compared to the growth posted in the prior

quarter. In the 3Q19, the loan book managed by these units

increased 2.3% on both a YoY and a QoQ basis. As of Sep19

these banking units had a loan book of Ch$6,872 Bn.

Similarly, loans granted to Middle Market posted an advance of

9.4% YoY and a significant increment of 4.3% QoQ, given specific

lending operations settled during the quarter. Aligned with the

dynamism shown by SMEs, this banking unit has also evidenced

sustained growth over the last quarters, which has mainly to do

with enhanced value offerings and customer proximity.

As for market share, given the momentum seen in mortgage loans and our funding advantage, we have increased our stake in this lending product from 16.7% in the 3Q19 to 17.2% in the 3Q19. Total market share, instead, decreased from 20.0% to 17.4% in the same period, due to the consolidation of consumer lending operations formerly out of the banking system by nearly Ch$2,500 Bn. in the 4Q18.

Funding Structure

We remain as one of the most competitive banks in terms of cost of funding in Chile during the 3Q19 by posting an average cost of funding of 2.5% as of September 30, 2019 (latest available data). Our leading position in this topic relies on:

  • Amarket-leading presence in both Demand Deposits. As of September 30, 2019 we had a 26.7% market share in terms of DDA balances held by personal banking and SMEs customers, which is more than five percentage points higher than the closest peer. As of the same date, we ranked first in total DDA balances by holding a 22.4%. This market position has been supported by an 11.2% YoY increment in total DDA balances, which amounted to Ch$10,039 Bn. in the 3Q19.
  • The addition of approximately 87,800 new checking account holders to our customer base as of Sep19.
  • A significant presence of retail counterparties in our funding. As of Sep19, 37% of our total funding came from retail lenders, which is a significant advantage when compared to our main competitors.

As for long-term debt, during the 3Q19 we carried out debt placements in the local market and overseas. In the local market we issued approximately Ch$716 Bn. in UF-denominated bonds with tenors ranging from four to twelve years. On the other hand, we issued long- term debt abroad by nearly Ch$124 Bn. with maturities between twelve and 20 years in markets as diverse as Hong Kong, Australia and Peru. All placements in foreign currency were accompanied by hedge accounting structures in order to neutralize the impact of FX and interest rates while swapping the cost of funding to local currency (UF).

Also, during the 3Q19 we placed subordinated bonds by nearly Ch$215 Bn. within the local market (denominated in UF) with tenors ranging from 21 to 23 years. This action was supported by both minor spreads over senior bonds and the possibility of bolstering our capital adequacy at a reasonable cost to take advantage of the phase-in proposed by the regulator for the implementation of Basel III.

Capital Adequacy

Our equity totaled Ch$3,424 Bn. as of Sep19, representing a YoY increment of Ch$200 Bn. or 6.2%, explained by:

  • An increment of approximately Ch$153 Bn. in retained earnings due to the retention of 30% of the net distributable earnings obtained in 2018 well explained in previous Earning Reports.
  • A YoY rise of Ch$86 Bn. or 13.8% in reserves in the 3Q19, explained our practice of retaining the equivalent to the effect of inflation (2018) on our shareholders' equity for 2019 (as agreed in the shareholders' annual meeting held in March 2019).
  • Year-to-dateearnings, net of provisions for minimum dividends, increasing approximately Ch$13 Bn. as compared to the 3Q18.

These factors were partly offset by a decline in other equity accounts of nearly Ch$42 Bn. YoY, given two opposite effects: (i) net loss on derivatives held for cash flow hedge accounting by Ch$53 Bn., as interest rates, particularly in CLF, have shown a sharp decrease over the last months, and (ii) favourable marking-to-market of our AFS portfolio, explaining Ch$11 Bn. YoY due to lower credit spreads.

In terms of capital adequacy, the positive growth evidenced by our loan portfolio has pushed our capital ratios down. For instance, our Tier I Ratio (on RWA) posted a decline of 39 bp. as compared to the 3Q18. In the same period, however, our BIS Ratio improved from 14.1% to 14.2%, mainly as a result of the issuance of subordinated bonds mentioned earlier. This effect explains nearly 70 bp. in terms of capital adequacy. Lastly, all of our capital indicators remained well above the regulatory thresholds.

Summary of differences between Chile GAAP and IFRS

The most significant differences are as follows:

  • Under Chilean GAAP, the merger of Banco de Chile and Citibank Chile was accounted for under thepooling-of-interest method, while under IFRS, and for external financial reporting purposes, the merger of the two banks was accounted for as a business combination in which the
    Bank is the acquirer as required by IFRS 3 "Business Combinations". Under IFRS 3, the Bank recognised all acquired net assets at fair value as determined at the acquisition date, as well as the goodwill resulting from the purchase price consideration in excess of net assets recognised.
  • Allowances for loan losses are calculated based on specific guidelines set by the Chilean Superintendency of Banks based on an expected losses approach. Under IFRS 9 "Financial instruments" allowances for loan losses should be calculated on a discounted basis under the
    "expected credit loss" model that focuses on the risk that an asset will default rather than whether a loss has actually been incurred or not.
  • Assets received in lieu of payments are measured at historical cost or fair value, less cost to sell, if lower, on a portfolio basis andwritten-off if not sold after a certain period in accordance with specific guidelines set by the Chilean Superintendency of Banks. Under IFRS, these assets are deemed non-current assets held-for-sale and their accounting treatment is set by IFRS 5 "Non-current assets held for sale and Discontinued operations". In accordance with IFRS 5 these assets are measured at historical cost or fair value, less cost to sell, if lower. Accordingly, under IFRS these assets are not written off unless impaired.
  • Chilean companies are required to distribute at least 30% of their net income to shareholders unless a majority of shareholders approve the retention of profits. In accordance with Chilean GAAP, the Bank records a minimum dividend allowance based on its distribution policy, which requires distribution of at least 60% of the period net income, as permitted by the Chilean Superintendency of Banks. Under IFRS, only the portion of dividends that is required to be distributed by Chilean Law must be recorded, i.e., 30% as required by Chilean Corporations Law.

Forward - Looking Information

The information contained herein incorporates by reference statements which constitute ''forward-looking statements,'' in that they include statements regarding the intent, belief or current expectations of our directors and officers with respect to our future operating performance. Such statements include any forecasts, projections and descriptions of anticipated cost savings or other synergies. You should be aware that any such forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance and may involve risks and uncertainties, and that actual results may differ from those set forth in the forward-looking statements as a result of various factors (including, without limitations, the actions of competitors, future global economic conditions, market conditions, foreign exchange rates, and operating and financial risks related to managing growth and integrating acquired businesses), many of which are beyond our control. The occurrence of any such factors not currently expected by us would significantly alter the results set forth in these statements.

Factors that could cause actual results to differ materially and adversely include, but are not limited to:

  • changes in general economic, business or political or other conditions in Chile or changes in general economic or business conditions in Latin America;
  • changes in capital markets in general that may affect policies or attitudes toward lending to Chile or Chilean companies;
  • unexpected developments in certain existing litigation;
  • increased costs;
  • unanticipated increases in financing and other costs or the inability to obtain additional debt or equity financing on attractive terms.

Undue reliance should not be placed on such statements, which speak only as of the date that they were made. Our independent public accountants have not examined or compiled the forward-looking statements and, accordingly, do not provide any assurance with respect to such statements. These cautionary statements should be considered in connection with any written or oral forward-looking statements that we may issue in the future. We do not undertake any obligation to release publicly any revisions to such forward-looking statements to reflect later events or circumstances or to reflect the occurrence of unanticipated events.
