Resources mobilised and managed
Resources mobilised and managed rose by 28% to €6.9 billion in the first half of 2016.
CDP confirms its role as a National Promotional Institution, deploying €3.6 billion (+22% compared with the first half of 2015) in support of enterprises and €2.1 billion (+€2 billion in the first half of 2015) to support international expansion. Resources channelled to public entities amounted to €1.2 billion, a decrease on the first half of 2015 which included two significant operations totalling €1.1 billion.
Despite the persistent uncertainty in the market, CDP recorded a sharp improvement in all components of its performance, and did so without the contribution of non-recurring revenue. This success was attributable in part to the effective management of liquidity, and optimisation of all forms of funding.
Net income for the period rose by €231 million compared with the first half of 2015 to about €1.15 billion, a result achieved with the contribution of non-recurring revenue, which in 2015 had amounted to more than €200 million.
Net interest income totalled about €1.17 billion, +209% compared with €380 million posted in the first half of 2015. This rise was mainly attributable to the management of liquidity and the securities portfolio with a view to supporting profitability while containing the adverse impact of falling interest rates.
The period closed with assets of about €370 billion (+7.2% on the end of 2015). The stock of liquidity reached €173 billion (+2.5%). Total funding amounted to €346 billion (+7.2% on the end of 2015), of which €251 billion in postal funding, broadly unchanged on the end of 2015.
CDP continues to enjoy a sound financial position, with shareholders’ equity of €19.9 billion, up 2.2% on the end of 2015.
