“Our income for the first half of the year is affected by the payment of last year’s dividend to our subsidiary SIH, which was half this year compared to 2020,” Determined by the Chairman and CEO of the Bank Peter David. Without this impact, according to David, revenue would have increased by 4% compared to the first half of 2020 to reach 7.53 million euros.
Compared to last year, the bank also made a much higher provision amounting to 1.5 million euros, while in the corresponding period last year it was only 53,000 euros. According to David, the bank is conservative in terms of management and is preparing for worse times by creating provisions.
