Birna Einarsdóttir, CEO:
„Íslandsbanki performed well during the first quarter of 2010 with results in line with budget. The recent Supreme Court ruling on the illegality of certain ISK loans indexed to foreign currencies has introduced an element of uncertainty in the Bank´s operating environment. Íslandsbanki is well prepared to deal with this situation having a solvency ratio of 20.8% - substantially higher than the 16% minimum set by the Financial Supervisory Authority".
