VTB Bank announces RAS financial results (standalone) for May and 5M 2021


VTB Bank (PJSC) (hereinafter referred to as the Bank) publishes its standalone key RAS financial results for May and five months of 2021.

Dmitry Pianov, Member of the Management Board, CFO of VTB Bank, noted:

“With a view to enhance the transparency of operations and in order to ensure prompt reporting of financial results of the Bank, we are introducing a new format of public disclosure — standalone key financial results in accordance with Russian accounting standards (RAS), calculated on the basis of accounting and management data.

Today we are publishing key RAS financial results for May and five months of 2021, and will be making such disclosures within five working days after the end of each month.

We treat these results as a harbinger that will help you shape an early understanding of the trends in consolidated IFRS results, considering the fact that under normal circumstances, net profit under IFRS is greater than RAS net profit.

We hope that this new disclosure format is going to be useful for investors and wider analytical community.”
