Ikano Bank: Ikano Bank AB (publ) Interim Report 2018-06

We are building for the future
"2018 began with growth in most markets. The work to ensure long-term
profitable growth and customer benefit continued, with related costs
negatively affecting our result for the period. The result for 2018
was also positively affected by a portfolio sale. We work with
improving our cost efficiency and profitability, while at the same
time building new ways to strengthen our future competitiveness.
Concluding, I note that we have good customer offerings, business
volume has increased and we see potential to grow in all our markets.
With that as a base, we build for the future."

Håkan Nyberg, MD
