BNP Paribas quarterly profit down 14%

The company's profit declined in Q4

France's largest bank by assets, BNP Paribas (PA:BNPP) SA, saw its net profit fall 14% to 1.59bn euros in Q4 2020 from 1.85bn euros in the same period last year.

Analysts polled by FactSet had on average estimated the bank's profit at 1.21bn euros.

The bank said its revenues fell 4.5 per cent to 10.83bn euros in October-December.

Net profit for the full year 2020 fell 13.5% to 7.07bn euros, less significantly than the bank had forecast. Revenue fell slightly by 0.7% to 44.28 billion euros.

The bank's Corporate Institutional Banking (CIB) revenues increased by 6.9% to EUR 3.32 billion in the fourth quarter compared with the same period a year earlier.

The bank's Tier 1 capital adequacy stood at 12.8% at the end of December compared with 12.6% at the end of September.

The bank will pay a dividend of 1.11euros per share to shareholders for 2020. This is the maximum allowed limit according to the European Central Bank (ECB) guidelines, BNP said in a statement. Meanwhile, the bank wants to boost shareholder returns for 2020 through share buybacks or distributions from reserves once the incentive limit restrictions are lifted.
