UniCredit Bank Czech Republic and Slovakia achieved excellent business results in the first half of 2016. Consolidated net profit grew by 11.9% yoy to CZK 3.5 billion

Comments of Jiří Kunert, CEO and Chairman of the Board of Directors of UniCredit Bank Czech Republic and Slovakia:
"Despite the increased costs to the Resolution Fund and the Deposit Insurance Fund, we have achieved a twelve percent growth in consolidated net profit. This major increase in net profit was due to both the steadily increasing volumes of retail and corporate loans as well as the return on the international transaction – acquisition of Visa Europe, where our bank had a shareholding. We manage to successfully implement the set strategy across all segments and we are creating a strong position for further growth on both markets. UniCredit Bank enjoys high levels of trust among its clients, in the times when banks all around Europe are under pressure from increasing regulation, maintaining profitability or events such as Brexit."
