International Monetary Fund Announces Earnings Results for the Year Ended April 30, 2015; Provides Earnings Guidance for the Financial Year 2016
Jul 27 15
International Monetary Fund announced earnings results for the year ended April 30, 2015. For the period, the company’s net income, including income from surcharges applied to higher access borrowing from the IMF, is estimated at SDR 1.5 billion ($2.2 billion). Net income of SDR 1.3 billion, which excludes the retained earnings of the gold endowment, will be added to the IMFs precautionary balances which are projected to reach SDR 14.0 billion ($19.8 billion) at end-financial year 2015. The net income position for financial year 2015 was lower than projected a year earlier. This reflected both early repayments by Ireland and Portugal and an adjustment required under the International Accounting Standard 19 stemming mainly from a further fall in the discount rate used in the valuation of pension obligations.
Net income of SDR 0.85 billion ($1.3 billion) is projected for financial year 2016. This projection is sensitive to the timing and amounts of disbursements under approved arrangements included in the projections, possible new arrangements, and the performance of the Funds investment portfolio. The projected net income will allow the IMF to continue to add to its precautionary balances.
