Jan Andresoo, Chairman of the Management Board, comments on the results:
“ Without a doubt, 2020 has been a difficult year, and the coronavirus crisis has also put Inbank to the test. Nevertheless, we can be satisfied with the results.
The fact that we were able to increase our sales by 4% during this difficult year is a good message in itself. Sales financing continued to grow and green financing emerged as a new segment. We also launched a next-generation credit card and app and expanded our line of payment products later.
In total, our loan portfolio grew by 19%, with a significant contribution from the Polish business unit, whose portfolio grew by 128% or 50 million euros over one year. I see 2020 as a breakthrough year for the Polish unit, and it seems that we have finally found the right strategy and our niche: we are competing in the market with our products and our innovation.
We ended the year with a decent profit of 5.9 million euros, despite the additional provisions we have made to cover future loan losses due to the coronavirus crisis.
In addition, the year-end share issuance made it clear to us that Inbank’s business model and team are still attractive to investors. To support future growth, we raised € 8 million in new capital through a share issue, which brought the market value of Inbank’s equity to € 149 million.
I look to the future positively. If 2020 was the year in which the foundations for international growth were laid, then in 2021 we have a clear goal: to enter a new market and continue to innovate in the buy now, pay later segment. ”
