Earnings per share in 2021 are expected to come to DKK 42 against the most recently announced expectations of DKK 40-41. This is based on the average number of outstanding shares in circulation of 70.7m in 2021. Based on the number of outstanding shares in circulation at the end of 2021 of 67.8m, this corresponds to earnings per share of slightly below DKK 44.

The pre-tax profit is expected to amount to DKK 4,027m and is affected by increasing lending growth, particularly to corporate clients, and extra costs of DKK 165m from recognising as an expense remaining activated costs for a capital market programme, which was finalised in 2021. Loan impairment charges amounted to an income of DKK 218m in 2021.

Expectations of earnings per share of DKK 40-46 in 2022

For 2022, Jyske Bank estimates earnings per share of DKK 40-46, corresponding to a net profit of DKK 2.7bn - 3.1bn. This is based on a continued high level of activity in the Danish economy and resultant increased lending volumes as well as a continued good credit quality. Tight cost management is maintained and an unchanged approach to capital distribution is planned.

Trend in number of outstanding shares

The number of outstanding shares in circulation has since the merger with BRFkredit in 2014 been reduced by 29%, and in the same period cash dividends of approx. DKK 2.5bn have been paid.
