ODDO : The rerating no longer depends only on the ECB

>Positive decisions but in line with expectations - The ECB's decisions are broadly in line with expectations as regards the banking sector:Lower deposit rates, consistent with forecasts, with a tiering system to limit the impact of the switch from -0.40% to -0.50% but not much more.Improvement in the terms of the TLTRO, with an extension from 2 to 3 years.But the drop in rates could lead investors to fear further pressure on margins.The sector has...

Commerzbank : Initiating coverage: Buy Tier 2, Reduce Senior; A certain sense for Commerz

Commerzbank : Durably inadequate profitability

>Growth in business not reflected in revenues - The Q2 results once again show that growth in business at the retail Germany division is still not feeding through to higher revenues. Since end-2016, volumes (measured by the EaD) have increased by 23% (RWA +20%), while revenues are stable excluding exceptional items. For the "corporates" division, business was down Q2/Q2, particularly in the Mittelstand segment, which is one of the development areas. Unsurprisingly, re...

Commerzbank : The benefits of the doubts: Stable credit opinion and market recommendations maintained

Commerzbank (CMZB) has reported some albeit limited improvement in its big challenge to enhance profitability metrics in executing its ‘Commerzbank 4.0’ strategy. Arguably headwinds from low interest rates (expected to continue), frontloading IT investments and customer acquisition costs are not helping, but the benign economic environment does. In addition, profitability improvement essentially derived from CMZB’s retail segment owing to higher lending volume and the transfer of...

Commerzbank - AGM 22 May 2019

General: On 17 March 2019, Commerzbank and Deutsche Bank published that they had agreed to start discussions with an open outcome on a potential merger. However, on 25 April 2019, the Management Boards of both Commerzbank and Deutsche Bank announced that a combination would not have created sufficient benefits to offset the additional execution risks, restructuring costs and capital requirements associated with such a large-scale integration. As a result, the two banks decided to discontinue discussions. Agenda: We have no concerns over this year's agenda.

Etude de l'AG du 03/05/2017

Item 2: At the end of 2016, Commerzbank reported a fully-loaded CET 1 ratio of 12.3% (up from 12% in 2015) above the minimum 7-8% level typically required of systematically important financial institutions (SIFIs). This was largely due to increases in profitability. The EBA stress test in 2016 revealed that the CET 1 ratio would decline to 7.42% (on a fully-loaded basis) under the 2018 adverse case scenario, making Commerzbank one of five European SIFIs with CET 1 ratios that would fall below 8% (Deutsche Bank, Société Générale, Barclays, and UniCredit). In this regard, we welcome the bank’s d...
