BVB Group reports 68 pct increase in Q1 net profit

 The Bucharest Stock Exchange (BVB) Group reported a net profit of RON 2.96 million for the first quarter of 2024, by 68 percent or RON 1.2 million higher from the prior year period, amid the upward dynamics started in 2023 after the listing of energy company Hidroelectrica, but also due to ongoing projects, show the consolidated financial results released on Thursday.

BVB Group's consolidated operating profit in Q1 2024 reached RON 2.25 million, up by 132 percent year-on-year, as a direct effect of the revenues achieved in the transactions segment, and also backed by the positive trend of revenues in the post-transaction and register segments.

Consolidated operational revenues increased by 34 percent or RON 4.4 million year-on-year to RON 17.25 million, mainly due to developments in the trading activity, with a direct impact also on the post-transaction business; this had a lasting positive effect on trading and settlement volumes, starting in H2 2023, with the listing of Hidroelectrica.

Consolidated operating expenses were 26 percent up in Q1 2024 to RON 15 million, as a result of the growing inflation, the increase in personnel expenses determined by the enforcement of the Group-wide pay policy, as well as in third-party service expenses and other operational expenses, following the implementation of the projects approved at Group level.

The consolidated net financial income was RON 1.27 million in Q1 2024, up 11 percent compared to Q1 2023, mainly as a result of the Group-wide increase in interest income, while provision expenses from expected credit loss were higher due to the increase in the CDS rate, but also in financial placements and cash assets.
