SC Parex banka Reports First Half 2010 Financial Results

The first half of 2010 has presented new challenges for the Parex Bank. The
restructuring process that was prepared by the international financial
consultant Nomura International plc was launched and implemented in a
purposeful way. The Parex Bank has demonstrated responsible and professionally
balanced work during very complicated economic conditions, and these efforts
have ensured that the bank can develop further in the interests of all of its

In the middle of this reporting period, on March 23, the Cabinet of Ministers
approved the restructuring plan for the Parex Bank, and on May 31, it was
submitted to the European Commission for its approval. The plan spoke to the
splitting off of certain Parex Bank assets to create a new bank with a stable
financial foundation so that it might become more successful in attracting
investors and repaying the state's investment as quickly as possible. The
remaining bank, the Parex Bank, will be able to sell its assets on the market
in a longer period of time. Its job is to ensure maximum returns on the
state's investments.

During the first half of 2010, the Parex Bank received permission from the
International Monetary Fund and the Finance and Capital Markets Commission
(FCMC) to increase credit limits for the bank's largest and most loyal
corporate clients. It also concluded an agreement with the European Investment
Bank on EUR 100 million in credit resources so that loans could be issued to
small and medium enterprises. A trade financing agreement has been concluded,
too, with the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD).

On May 5, 2010, the Parex Bank concluded an agreement with the Bank of Latvia
on the premature repayment of a loan of LVL 117.6 million. The decision was
based on an increase in deposits at the Parex Bank, stability in the currency
market for the lats, and the fact that the bank's liquidity indicators
substantially exceeded stated regulations.

The bank's liquidity has improved during the reporting period, exceeding 60% as
of June 30 of this year. Deposit volumes at the bank continued to increase
during the half-year, and data show that total deposits at the end of June
exceeded LVL 1 billion, not including deposits from the State Treasury. Since
the beginning of the year, deposits at the Parex Bank and its group have
increased by LVL 188.5 million and 211.5 million respectively. In terms of
interest on term deposits, the Parex Bank has paid more than LVL 59 million to
the State Treasury since December 2008, doing so in accordance with contractual

On February 12, 2010, Parex repaid EUR 310 million to providers of its
syndicated loans. Because of the improved liquidity of the bank, it itself
could cover most of that sum - EUR 165 million. The remaining EUR 145 million
came from the State Treasury in the form of a term deposit.

The lending portfolio for the bank and the group on June 30, 2010, amounted to
LVL 1.38 and 1.57 billion respectively, with assets of LVL 2.28 and 2.44
billion. Total equity at the end of the reporting period was LVL 124,5 and 100
million respectively. The most important shareholder, the Latvian government,
provided aid to the Parex Bank and ensured additional necessary capital. On
February 23, 2010, the Cabinet of Ministers approved an increase in the bank's
share capital of LVL 31.5 million. The increase occurred on February 26 via
capitalisation of the relevant sum from the deposits that had been made by the
State Treasury.

The bank and the group concluded the first half of this year with total net
losses of LVL 61.7 and 73.0 million respectively, while losses before
provisions, depreciation and taxes amounted to LVL 21.3 and 22.6 million.
Financial results are still being influenced seriously by the provisions that
the bank and group have had to make as a result of a drop in asset value of LVL
47.8 and 54.2 million respectively.

During the reporting period, in comparison to the same period in 2009, the
Parex Bank cut administrative spending by 20% (LVL 5.6 million) -
communications and IT costs by LVL 0.5 million, personnel costs by LVL 4.6
million, etc. Some costs were reduced by outsourcing services. Building
management at the bank's branches, for instance, now costs 80% less, while
spending on office and housekeeping supplies has declined by 22%.
