Interim report 1 January – 30 June 2012 Market leading in new deposits

SBAB Bank’s CEO, Carl-Viggo Östlund, comments: SBAB Bank reported an improved operating profit for the second quarter compared with the year-earlier period. This was the result of continued stable net interest income trend, lower expenses and the fact that the impact on earnings from the market valuation of financial instruments was not as negative as in the first quarter.

Our deposits through savings accounts are breaking records and, for the first five months of the year, we were the market leader in new deposits from households in Sweden, with a market share of 36 percent. This underscores the strength of our strategy of challenging the major banks by broadening our customer offering with straightforward and competitive products. During the quarter, we launched a new mobile site and will shortly challenge banks by featuring funds and also offer retail loans to customers who do not have a mortgage with us.

SBAB Bank is a bank focused on consumers and to further strengthen our focus, we will gradually reduce and streamline our corporate business to enable a sale of that part of the operation.

For many people, purchasing a residence is the largest private financial transaction that they will undertake during their lifetime. On our website, we try to facilitate matters for customers by clearly presenting our funding costs and how we determine our prices. SBAB has a history of believing that what is good for our customers is also good for SBAB Bank – which we live by in the continued advancement of SBAB Bank.
