Outside trading hours - Regulated information*
Thursday, December 3, 2015 — KBC notes the announcements made today by the European Banking Authority (EBA) regarding the information of the EU-wide Transparency Exercise 2015 and fulfilment of the EBA Board of Supervisors’ decision.
The Board of Supervisors of the European Banking Authority decided not to carry out an EU-wide stress test in 2015. Instead, to ensure a sufficient and appropriate level of information to market participants, the EBA conducted a Transparency Exercise providing detailed data on EU banks' balance sheets and portfolio.
The information of this 2015 EU-wide Transparency Exercise refers to the reported data as of 31 December 2014 and 30 June 2015. The templates, published on a bank-by-bank basis, are the following:
Collaterals in mortgage loans.
The data collection relies on the standard information reported by the banks to the EBA on a regular basis through the supervisory reporting framework (FINREP, COREP). In addition, the banks were requested to provide information on their Sovereign Exposures and Leverage Ratio.
The detailed results of this exercise for KBC Bank were provided in a disclosure table based on the common format provided by the EBA. For more details on this exercise see the EBA’s website www.eba.europa.eu .
The information is provided only for comparison purposes and should not in any way be directly compared to the bank’s other published information.
