The Swedish Financial Supervisory Authority (the “SFSA”) have decided to issue a public adverse remark and impose a fine of MSEK 35 on Resurs Holding’s subsidiary Resurs Bank. The reason for the SFSA’s decision is the fact that Resurs Bank, from November 2012 to September 2015, calculated and reported the capital adequacy ratio on a different level within the then prevailing group structure than required by applicable rules, as well as the fact that the CET 1 and total capital ratios, as an effect of the then prevailing group structure, did not comply with the relevant capital requirements during this period.
When Resurs Bank discovered the incorrect reporting in September 2015, the SFSA was informed and the error was corrected. The incorrect reporting has not caused any practical or financial consequences neither for the bank, its customers nor its owners. Information on this issue has been available in Resurs Holding’s financial report for the third quarter of 2015 and in the year-end reports of Resurs Holding and Resurs Bank, as well as in the prospectus regarding the listing of Resurs Holding on Nasdaq Stockholm in April 2016.
No provision for any fine has been made in Resurs Holdings or Resurs Bank’s accounts and therefore the fine will be charged to earnings in the third quarter of 2016. The holding entity within Nordic Capital, Cidron Semper Ltd, has undertaken to indemnify Resurs for any fine exceeding MSEK 20, i.e. MSEK 15, by providing an unconditional shareholder’s contribution.
