The Board of Directors examined Natixis’s second-quarter 2013 accounts on August 6, 2013.

Economic conditions remained difficult in France and the euro zone during the period, and stock-market indices proved volatile. The Euro Stoxx 50 and the Euro Stoxx Banks declined 0.8% and 1%, respectively, during the second quarter.

The main points of note for Natixis during the second quarter were as follows:

  • Dynamic commercial activity for core businesses, as witnessed by a 4% increase in net revenues vs. 2Q12. In Wholesale Banking, Structured financing new production amounted to a robust €3.6bn during the period. In Investment Solutions, Asset management recorded a €2.4bn net inflow excluding money-market products, buoyed by the US and Asia. In Specialized Financial Services, the various business lines continued to roll out solutions to the Groupe BPCE networks, with the result that Specialized financing revenues advanced 6% vs. 2Q12 without perimeter effect.
  • GAPC’s asset disposal program has gained pace since the start of 2013, and recorded €3.6bn of asset sales in 1H13, including €2.6bn in 2Q13, with limited haircuts.
  • The provision for credit loss (excluding GAPC) stabilized relative to first-quarter 2013.
  • Net income of €267m rose 4% vs. 2Q12, pro forma of the sale of CCIs and the fair-value (FV) adjustment on own senior debt.
  • The Basel 3 CET1 Ratio(1) amounted to 9.7% at June 30, 2013, reflecting continued improvement in financial structure.



Laurent Mignon, Natixis Chief Executive Officer, said: “The sale of the CCIs to the Banques Populaires and Caisses d’Epargne was completed in line with the schedule presented on February 17, 2013 and the ensuing value-creation for Natixis shareholders has been confirmed via the payment of an exceptional distribution of around €2bn on August 19, 2013. During the second quarter, Natixis’s core businesses managed to grow revenues despite tough conditions in France and the euro zone. Natixis also continued to gain market share, particularly so in international markets which represent a source of sizeable leverage in the future.”
