Solid H118 lending volumes stabilising earnings

Update | Financials | 13 Aug 2018

UmweltBank’s (UBK) lending activity in H118 illustrates the considerable demand for green construction financing amid high residential demand in Germany. Moreover, the impact of recent regulatory changes in the renewable energy segment so far seems to be less pronounced than initially expected. A successful placement of the junior green bond, which is currently underway, would equip the bank with a capital base allowing it to leverage these favourable trends and further grow its loan portfolio. UBK shares continue to trade at a P/BV of 1.2x in 2018e, which looks low relative to the bank’s ROE (which we forecast at 11.8% in FY18).

Well-established German sustainable bank

Initiation | Financials | 16 May 2018

UmweltBank (UBK) is a play on Germany’s ongoing transition towards a low-carbon, resource-efficient economy. The bank’s long-term asset and earnings growth should continue to be driven by regulatory and public support of green construction and renewable energy (RE) projects. In this context, UBK intends to raise new subordinated debt to strengthen its capital base. UBK is one of the most profitable listed banks in the German-speaking region due to its low cost base and high credit quality. UBK’s shares trade at a P/BV 2018e of 1.2x, which looks low relative to its above-average ROE (we expect 11.5% in FY18).
