PRESS RELEASE – TECHCOMBANK 2022 GENERAL MEETING OF SHAREHOLDERS
 
Techcombank delivered USD 1 billion+ pre-tax profit, powered by investments in Digital, Data and Talent
 
On 23 April 2022, Vietnam Technological and Commercial Joint Stock Bank (“Techcombank” or the “Bank”) held its 2021 Annual General Meeting of Shareholders (AGM). The shareholders approved all resolutions presented, including the 2022 business plan.
 
2021 saw the COVID-19 pandemic impacting Vietnam’s economy and society to an even larger scale than the year before, as the fourth wave spread across the country. During this challenging period for the nation, the Bank’s role in providing safe and accessible banking services to retail and business customers became more vital than ever before. Thanks to its prior investments in digital technology and infrastructure, the Bank was able to maintain all banking services, even during periods of extended lockdown, while providing safe working environments for employees.
 
To support its customers through the pandemic, Techcombank further expanded its COVID-19 relief program, rescheduling nearly VND 11.8 trillion in loans in 2020-21, and granting VND 540 billion worth of interest reductions and waivers. Thanks to the support of the Bank, many of the customers who were struggling to make repayments managed to exit the program, leading to a rapid decline in outstanding rescheduled loans to VND 1.9 trillion by the end of 2021 (equivalent to 0.5% of total outstanding loans). Techcombank also contributed around VND 400 billion for community support, including donations to the vaccine fund, hospital construction, provision of medical equipment and other forms of direct support to patients and their families.
 
Techcombank’s investments in data and digital technology, coupled with its commitment to delivering the best service possible to customers, enabled Techcombank to achieve another year of robust financial performance in 2021, despite the challenging conditions. In 2021, the Bank generated VND 37.1 trillion in total operating income (TOI), up 35.4% Year-on-Year (YoY), driven by strong growth in both interest income (NII) and service fee income (NFI).
 
Techcombank became the first non-state-owned commercial bank to join Vietnam’s “billion-dollar profit” club in 2021, with a profit before tax (PBT) of VND 23.2 trillion, up 47.1% YoY. With this fifth consecutive year of double-digit growth, the compounded average growth rate (CAGR) of Techcombank’s profits over the 2016-2021 period reached a record level of 50.0%.
 
During 2021, Techcombank grew its total assets by 29.4%, to VND 568.7 trillion, while delivering an industry-leading return on assets (ROA) of 3.7%. The current account and savings account (CASA) ratio reached 50.5% at the end of 2021, setting another record for Vietnam’s banking sector. Techcombank also reported a capital adequacy ratio (CAR) of 15.0%, a non-performing loans ratio (NPL) of 0.7%, and a loan loss coverage ratio (LLC) of 162.9%, reflecting the Bank’s prudent approach to risk-management.
 
2022 Outlook

Shareholders approved the retention of all earnings to fund the investments in Digital, Data and Talent and support the Bank’s growth trajectory, as set out in the 2021-2025 strategy. The 2022 performance targets were also presented during the meeting, confirming that the Bank is well positioned to capitalise on economic recovery as Vietnam emerges from the pandemic.
 
In 2022, PBT is guided to reach VND 27.0 trillion, up 16.2% from 2021. The Bank’s total credit1 is projected to increase 15.0% YoY to VND 446.6 trillion, or higher, in line with the final quota granted by the State Bank of Vietnam. Deposits growth will be managed in accordance with actual credit growth as the Bank pursues optimisation of asset liability management (ALM). Techcombank plans to keep NPL below 1.5%.
 
The Bank reported that it will increase the charter capital to VND 35.2 trillion, an increase of 0.18% in conjunction with the planned issuance of 6.3 million ESOP shares.
 
The shareholders also ratified revisions to the Bank’s Charter and to the organisation and operation of the Board of Director (BOD) in accordance with the new Law No. 3/2022/QH15.
 
Additional details of the Bank’s 2021 performance and 2022 focus can be found on the Bank’s website at 2022 AGM Documents.
