Bremer Landesbank expects a significantly negative annual result due to high value adjustments in its portfolio of shipping loans


Bremen, 2 June 2016: As a result of the persistently difficult market conditions in the area of ship financing, the management board of Bremer Landesbank Kreditanstalt Oldenburg - Girozentrale - ("Bremer Landesbank") expects on the basis of a forecast as of 2 June 2016 that, as per 30 June 2016, the bank has to undertake in its portfolio of shipping loans in this form so far unplanned value adjustments which, for the bank as a whole, will amount to in total approximately EUR 400 million. For the entire financial year 2016, Bremer Landesbank expects so far unplanned value adjustments in its portfolio of shipping loans in the amount of a high three-digit million figure. Hereby, Bremer Landesbank reacts to its changed assessment of the market for ship financing which Bremer Landesbank does not expect to significantly recover in the mid-term.

Bremer Landesbank currently estimates that the need for unanticipated high value adjustments will, in its consolidated financial statements according to IFRS as of 31 December 2016, likely result in an annual loss in the amount of a mid three-digit million figure. Bremer Landesbank currently has – as shown in its individual annual accounts as of 31 December 2015 – capital and profit reserves, which count as equity, in the amount of in total EUR 1.078 billion, and a fund for general banking risks pursuant to § 340g HGB in the amount of EUR 589 million, both of which would, as of now, be available to absorb the expected annual loss. Measures to strengthen Bremer Landesbank's equity have been initiated.
