In April 2020, Resurs Bank made an extra credit provision of SEK 75 million due to COVID-19, in accordance with IFRS 9. The Board of Resurs Bank AB has today resolved to dissolve the extra credit provision in its entirety.
Resurs has not noted any negative trend in customer payment patterns and uncertainty regarding the ongoing economic recovery and the trend in unemployment and its associated effects on customers’ solvency have declined significantly, with credit quality instead improving. As such, the Board of Directors has resolved to dissolve the extra credit provision of SEK 75 million in its entirety, which will impact earnings positively for the third quarter of 2021.
