PR Newswire/euro adhoc/
EANS-Adhoc: Österreichische Volksbanken-Aktiengesellschaft expects negative
result in single entity accounts for 2012 / no interest payments on
supplementary capital until 2015 (for the year 2014)
ad-hoc disclosure transmitted by euro adhoc with the aim of a Europe-wide distribution. The issuer is solely responsible for the content of this announcement. 
The board of directors of Österreichische Volksbanken-Aktiengesellschaft (VBAG)
announces that the single entity result (according to local GAAP) for the
business year 2012 will be negative within a clearly double-digit million euro
Due to different accounting rules between the single entity accounts (local
GAAP) and the consolidated group accounts (IFRS), the latter will show a
triple-digit million euro profit. Mainly responsible for the difference between
the single entity result (local GAAP) and the IFRS result is the different
accounting treatment and timely realization of the capital reduction on the
participation capital issue 2008. Contrary to the single entity result, the
participation capital issue 2008 is treated as a liability in the IFRS
consolidated group accounts. The capital reduction on this instrument is
therefore realized in the IFRS consolidated profit and loss statement as per
September 28, 2012. In the single entity accounts the capital reduction was
realized retroactively as per December 31, 2012. 
Due to the expected difficult economic environment and the resulting deductions
on the run-down portfolio, interest payments on supplementary capital
(Ergänzungskapital) should not be expected for the years 2013 and 2014.
