Raiffeisen International: Semi-Annual Report 2005

RBI: CET 1 ratio at approximately 10 per cent
Vienna, 28 January 2015. As at 31.12.2014, the common equity tier 1 ratio (fully loaded) stands
at approximately 10 per cent for Raiffeisen Bank International AG (RBI). The total capital ratio
(transitional) stands at over 15 per cent. Thus, RBI comfortably fulfills all regulatory capital
requirements. The Management Board of RBI emphasizes that no capital increase is planned.
In order to extend the capital buffer, a reduction of risk-weighted assets (RWA) of at least 20 per
cent is planned. In doing so, RBI will actively embark on a course which concentrates on
strategically relevant and sustainably profitable business areas.
The 2014 profit after tax for the Russia segment will be significantly over EUR 300 million. The
reduction in RWA will also affect the RBI Group’s Russian exposure. Although higher provisioning
costs are expected, RBI also anticipates a positive result in Russia in 2015. Despite speculation, RBI
emphasizes that there are no discussions taking place on the sale of its Russian subsidiary.
RBI will announce the planned measures together with its preliminary unaudited full year figures for
2014 on 9 February 2015.
