Birna Einarsdóttir, Chief Executive Officer at Íslandsbanki:

The year has begun well for Íslandsbanki, and earnings are in line with
management's expectations. We see growth in net interest income and in net
fee and commission income. The Bank's loan book has grown by 2 percent
quarter-on-quarter. Its liquidity position is very strong, and the Bank is
therefore well prepared to participate in a wide range of projects. Core
operations remain strong, and efforts to simplify and strengthen the Bank's
product offerings have borne fruit. Wage costs have risen in the wake of
collective bargaining agreements, as they have for other companies, and are
in line with the wage index.

The Bank recently announced the cancellation of borrowing fees for first-time
homebuyers, in an effort to meet the needs of this rapidly growing group. At
the same time, the Bank rolled out a new online credit assessment process
that enables applicants to sign their applications electronically. This is
part of Íslandsbanki's move towards fuller digitisation, in line with our
goal of simplifying the mortgage lending process for our customers and
strengthening the service we provide.

At the beginning of 2016, Íslandsbanki issued a USD 35m bond on favourable
terms, after the outlook on the Bank's S&P credit rating was changed from
stable to positive. The Bank has also been an active issuer of bills and
covered bonds in the domestic market during the period.

This autumn, Íslandsbanki will move its headquarters to the North Tower in
Kópavogur, thereby unifying its operations, which are currently in four
locations. Significant streamlining will therefore take place when the Bank
opens its modern and progressive headquarters.
