Komerční Banka is the third largest bank by assets in the Czech Republic, with a share of over 16%. Formerly a corporate-oriented bank, the bank has developed into a universal bank servicing more than 1.3 mil retail clients through nearly 400 branches. Following hefty loan losses and a government-orchestrated bailout at the end of the 1990s, 60% of the bank was sold to France's Societe Generale in 2001.
Since the takeover, Komerční Banka's net profit has increased fivefold and the bank's ROE has exceeded 20%. The bank is well capitalised (with a capital adequacy ratio at nearly 15%) and funded (with loans to deposits at only 78%) and has been lending cautiously since its privatisation (non-performing loans accounted for only 5.8% of the total at the end of 2012).
