Barclays Bank Ireland PLC 1
The term ‘Bank’ or ‘BBI’ refers to Barclays Bank Ireland PLC. Unless otherwise stated, the income statement analysis compares the six months ended 30 June
2020 (‘H120) to the corresponding six months of 2019 (‘H119’) and balance sheet analysis as at 30 June 2020 with comparatives relating to 31 December 2019.
The abbreviations ‘€m’ and ‘€bn’ represent millions and thousands of millions of Euros respectively. There are a number of key judgement areas, for example
impairment calculations, which are based on models and which are subject to ongoing adjustment and modifications. Reported numbers reflect best estimates and
judgements at the given point in time.
Relevant terms that are used in this document but are not defined under applicable regulatory guidance or International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) are
explained in the results glossary that can be accessed at https://home.barclays/investor-relations/reports-and-events/annual-reports.
The information in this announcement, which was approved by the Board of Directors on 24 July 2020, does not comprise statutory financial statements within
the meaning of Section 274 of the Companies Act 2014. Statutory financial statements for the year ended 31 December 2019, which contained an unmodified
statutory auditor report under Section 391 of the Companies Act 2014, have been delivered to the Registrar of Companies in accordance with Part 6 of the
Companies Act 2014 and the European Communities (Credit Institutions: Financial Statements) Regulations, 2015 (S.I. 266 of 2015).
The Bank has chosen to prepare and publish this Interim Report and Condensed Financial Statements for the six months ended 30 June 2020 (‘2020 Interim
Report’) in accordance with the requirements for periodic financial information under the Transparency (Directive 2004/109/EC) Regulations 2007, as amended
(‘Transparency Regulations’). The Bank has undertaken to do this to ensure consistency of presentation of this 2020 Interim Report with those interim financial
results published in later years should the relevant requirements under the Transparency Regulations subsequently apply to the Bank.
The Bank cautions readers that no forward-looking statement is a guarantee of future performance and that actual results or other financial condition or
performance measures could differ materially from those contained in the forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements can be identified by the
fact that they do not relate only to historical or current facts. Forward-looking statements sometimes use words such as ‘may’, ‘will’, ‘seek’, ‘continue’, ‘aim’,
‘anticipate’, ‘target’, ‘projected’, ‘expect’, ‘estimate’, ‘intend’, ‘plan’, ‘goal’, ‘believe’, ‘achieve’ or other words of similar meaning.
Forward-looking statements can be made in writing but also may be made verbally by members of the management of the Bank (including, without limitation,
during management presentations to financial analysts) in connection with this document. Examples of forward-looking statements include, among others,
statements or guidance regarding or relating to the Bank’s future financial position, income growth, assets, impairment charges, provisions, business strategy,
capital, leverage and other regulatory ratios, payment of dividends (including dividend payout ratios and expected payment strategies), projected levels of growth
in the banking and financial markets, projected costs or savings, any commitments and targets, estimates of capital expenditures, plans and objectives for future
operations, projected employee numbers, IFRS impacts and other statements that are not historical fact. By their nature, forward-looking statements involve risk
and uncertainty because they relate to future events and circumstances. The forward-looking statements speak only as at the date on which they are made and
such statements may be affected by changes in legislation, the development of standards and interpretations under IFRS, including evolving practices with regard
to the interpretation and application of accounting and regulatory standards, the outcome of current and future legal proceedings and regulatory investigations,
future levels of conduct provisions, the policies and actions of governmental and regulatory authorities, geopolitical risks and the impact of competition. In
addition, factors including (but not limited to) the following may have an effect: capital, leverage and other regulatory rules applicable to past, current and future
periods; Eurozone and global macroeconomic and business conditions; the effects of any volatility in credit markets; market related risks such as changes in
interest rates and foreign exchange rates; effects of changes in valuation of credit market exposures; changes in valuation of issued securities; volatility in capital
markets; changes in credit ratings of the Bank or any securities issued by the Bank; direct and indirect impacts of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic;
instability as a result of the exit by the UK from the European Union and the disruption that may subsequently result in Ireland, the EU and globally; and the
success of future acquisitions, disposals and other strategic transactions. A number of these influences and factors are beyond the Bank’s control. As a result, the
Bank actual financial position, future results, dividend payments, capital, leverage or other regulatory ratios or other financial and non-financial metrics or
performance measures may differ materially from the statements or guidance set forth in the Bank’s forward-looking statements. Additional risks and factors
which may impact the Bank’s future financial condition and performance are identified in the Bank’s 2019 Annual Report and the Bank’s 2020 Interim Report
which are available on Barclays’ website at https://home.barclays/investor-relations/.
Subject to our obligations under the applicable laws and regulations of any relevant jurisdiction, (including, without limitation, Ireland), in relation to disclosure
and ongoing information, we undertake no obligation to update publicly or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future
events or otherwise.
