Slawomir Krupa, the Group’s Chief Executive Officer, commented:“This quarter was marked by a good commercial performance in most businesses, limited increase in operating expenses and a low cost of risk. Global Banking and Investor Solutions notably posted stable revenues compared to a high level last year, and International Retail Banking maintained a solid performance. The Group’s net result was penalized by the negative effect of short-term hedges on net interest income in French retail, the impact of which peaked in Q3 23. It also includes, as announced during our Capital Markets Day, exceptional accounting items, with no impact on the capital ratio, or on shareholder distribution. Finally, in line with previous quarters, the balance sheet is very solid with a CET 1 ratio of 13.3%, up 20 basis points, and a robust liquidity profile.”

Societe Generale’s Board of Directors, which met on 2 November 2023 under the chairmanship of Lorenzo Bini Smaghi, examined the Societe Generale Group’s results for Q3 23 and for the first nine months of 2023.

Net banking income 

Net banking income decreased in Q3 23 by -6.2% (-9.2%*) vs. Q3 22 largely due to the decline in the net interest income in French Retail, Private Banking and Insurance, and to negative revenue in the Corporate Centre (in particular, impacts from the unwinding of hedges on TLTRO operations and other volatile items).

Revenues recorded by French Retail, Private Banking and Insurance decreased by -16.4% vs. Q3 22 owing to the decline in the net interest income which continues to be impacted by short-term hedges that were taken until 2022. Insurance’s revenues climbed by +11% vs. Q3 22.

Global Banking & Investor Solutions recorded lower revenues, down by a slight -0.4% in Q3 23 vs. a very good Q3 22, thanks to sustained level of activity. Global Markets & Investor Services posted solid revenues compared with a strong reference point in Q3 22 (-1.7%), driven by robust commercial activity in equity derivatives and a good performance in fixed income activities. Financing & Advisory activities posted a robust performance, with increased revenues in the asset finance platform. The securitisation and natural resources finance activities also turned in a solid performance. Investment banking activities rebounded during the quarter, particularly in the acquisition finance segment and for primary bond market activities. Global Transaction & Payment Services’ activities continued to grow on back of high interest rates.

International Retail, Mobility and Leasing Services’ revenues climbed by +12.0% (-0.8%*) vs. Q3 22, in particular following the integration of LeasePlan by ALD.

Corporate Centre recorded revenues of EUR -231m in Q3 23 which included around EUR -63 million euros due to the unwinding of hedges on TLTRO operations, in addition to impacts from the change in fair value of the swaps used for the replacement of equity stakes in subsidiaries.

Over 9M 23, net banking income decreased by -6.8% vs. 9M 22.

Operating expenses 

In Q3 23, operating expenses came to EUR 4,360 million, up by +6.8% vs. Q3 22.

They include around EUR 230 million for the integration of LeasePlan’s activities in ALD excluding transformation charges, and EUR 145 million in transformation costs. At constant perimeter, operating expenses are increasing by less than +1% vs. Q3 22.

Over 9M 23, operating expenses totalled EUR 13,858 million, up by +2.4% vs. 9M 22.

They include EUR 339 million for the integration of LeasePlan’s activities in ALD, excluding transformation charges and EUR 627 million in transformation costs.

The cost-to-income ratio came to 72.4% in 9M 23 (68.9% excluding the contribution to the Single Resolution Fund.

Cost of risk

The cost of risk for Q3 23 was moderate at 21 basis points, i.e., EUR 316 million. It breaks down into a provision on non-performing loans of EUR 419 million (28 basis points) and a reversal of provision on performing loans for EUR -103 million (around -7 basis points). The Group now estimates that the cost of risk for FY 2023 will be lower than 20 basis points.

At end-September 2023, the Group’s provisions on performing loans amounted to EUR 3,612 million.

The non-performing loans ratio amounted to 2.9%5 at 30 September 2023. The gross coverage ratio on stood at 46%6 at 30 September 2023 (80% after taking into account guarantees and collateral).

At 30 September 2023, the Group sharply reduced its offshore exposure to Russia to around EUR 1.0 billion of EAD (Exposure at Default) compared with EUR 1.6 billion at 30 June 2023 (-38%). The maximum risk exposure on this portfolio is estimated at around EUR 0.3 billion before provision. Total provisions stands at EUR 0.2 billion. The onshore residual exposure is very limited at around EUR 15 million and relates to the integration of LeasePlan activities in Russia.

Group net income

Group net income stood at EUR 295 million in Q3 23, i.e., a Return on Tangible Equity (ROTE) of 3.8%.

It was negatively impacted by EUR -610m of exceptional items, which include on the one hand, the goodwill impairment of the African, Mediterranean basin and Overseas activities and Equipment Finance activities for a total of around EUR -340 million, and on the other hand, the booking of a provision for Deferred Tax Assets of around EUR -270 million.

Group net income for 9M 23 came to EUR 2,063 million, i.e., a reported ROTE of 5.0%; and of 6.5% excluding the contribution to the Single Resolution Fund contribution.

9.    APPENDIX 2: METHODOLOGY

1 –The financial information presented for the third quarter and nine months 2023 was examined by the Board of Directors on November 2nd, 2023 and has been prepared in accordance with IFRS as adopted in the European Union and applicable at that date. This information has not been audited

2 - Net banking income

The pillars’ net banking income is defined on page 41 of Societe Generale’s 2023 Universal Registration Document. The terms “Revenues” or “Net Banking Income” are used interchangeably. They provide a normalised measure of each pillar’s net banking income taking into account the normative capital mobilised for its activity.

3 - Operating expenses

Operating expenses correspond to the “Operating Expenses” as presented in notes 5 and 8.2 to the Group’s consolidated financial statements as at December 31st, 2022. The term “costs” is also used to refer to Operating Expenses. The Cost/Income Ratio is defined on page 41 of Societe Generale’s 2023 Universal Registration Document.

4 - Cost of risk in basis points, coverage ratio for doubtful outstandings

The cost of risk is defined on pages 42 and 691 of Societe Generale’s 2023 Universal Registration Document. This indicator makes it possible to assess the level of risk of each of the pillars as a percentage of balance sheet loan commitments, including operating leases.

In EURm   Q3 23 Q3 22 9M 23 9M 22
French Retail, Private Banking and Insurance Net Cost Of Risk 144 196 342 264

Gross loan Outstandings 596,350 580,663 583,512 575,893
Cost of Risk in bp 21 31 15 29

The gross coverage ratio for doubtful outstandings is calculated as the ratio of provisions recognised in respect of the credit risk to gross outstandings identified as in default within the meaning of the regulations, without taking account of any guarantees provided. This coverage ratio measures the maximum residual risk associated with outstandings in default (“doubtful”).

5 - ROE, ROTE, RONE

The notions of ROE (Return on Equity) and ROTE (Return on Tangible Equity), as well as their calculation methodology, are specified on page 43 of Societe Generale’s 2023 Universal Registration Document. This measure makes it possible to assess Societe Generale’s return on equity and return on tangible equity.RONE (Return on Normative Equity) determines the return on average normative equity allocated to the Group’s businesses, according to the principles presented on page 43 of Societe Generale’s 2023 Universal Registration Document.

Group net income used for the ratio numerator is book Group net income adjusted for “interest net of tax payable on deeply subordinated notes and undated subordinated notes, interest paid to holders of deeply subordinated notes and undated subordinated notes, issue premium amortisations” and “unrealised gains/losses booked under shareholders’ equity, excluding conversion reserves” (see methodology note No. 9). For ROTE, income is also restated for goodwill impairment.

Details of the corrections made to book equity in order to calculate ROE and ROTE for the period are given in the table below:

8 - The Societe Generale Group’s Common Equity Tier 1 capital is calculated in accordance with applicable CRR2/CRD5 rules. The fully loaded solvency ratios are presented pro forma for current earnings, net of dividends, for the current financial year, unless specified otherwise. When there is reference to phased-in ratios, these do not include the earnings for the current financial year, unless specified otherwise. The leverage ratio is also calculated according to applicable CRR2/CRD5 rules including the phased-in following the same rationale as solvency ratios.

209 – Funded balance sheet, loan to deposit ratio

The funded balance sheet is based on the Group financial statements. It is obtained in two steps:

  • A first step aiming at reclassifying the items of the financial statements into aggregates allowing for a more economic reading of the balance sheet. Main reclassifications:

Insurance: grouping of the accounting items related to insurance within a single aggregate in both assets and liabilities.Customer loans: include outstanding loans with customers (net of provisions and write-downs, including net lease financing outstanding and transactions at fair value through profit and loss); excludes financial assets reclassified under loans and receivables in accordance with the conditions stipulated by IFRS 9 (these positions have been reclassified in their original lines).Wholesale funding: Includes interbank liabilities and debt securities issued. Financing transactions have been allocated to medium/long-term resources and short-term resources based on the maturity of outstanding, more or less than one year.Reclassification under customer deposits of the share of issues placed by French Retail Banking networks (recorded in medium/long-term financing), and certain transactions carried out with counterparties equivalent to customer deposits (previously included in short term financing).Deduction from customer deposits and reintegration into short-term financing of certain transactions equivalent to market resources.

  • A second step aiming at excluding the contribution of insurance subsidiaries, and netting derivatives, repurchase agreements, securities borrowing/lending, accruals and “due to central banks”.

The Group loan/deposit ratio is determined as the division of the customer loans by customer deposits as presented in the funded balance sheet.

NB (1) The sum of values contained in the tables and analyses may differ slightly from the total reported due to rounding rules.

(2) All the information on the results for the period (notably: press release, downloadable data, presentation slides and supplement) is available on Societe Generale’s website www.societegenerale.com in the “Investor” section.
