Central 1 reports 2022 third quarter financial results

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Nov. 24, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Central 1 Credit Union (‘Central 1’ or ‘the organization’) reported a profit of $1.3 million for the third quarter (Q3) ended September 30, 2022.

“We continue to support our members and clients through the effects of a slowing global economy and resulting consumer behaviours,” said Sheila Vokey, Central 1’s President and CEO.

“While our year-to-date results have been challenged by unrealized losses driven by increasing market yields in the Canadian fixed income market, our third quarter shows signs of improvement as interest margin strengthened which resulted in overall profitability for the quarter. Meanwhile, we continue as planned with our investments to enhance and modernize our products and services enabling our clients to deliver valuable financial services to Canadians.”

Q3 2022 Consolidated Results Compared to Q2 2022:

  • Profit of $1.3 million, compared to loss of $26.2 million
  • Interest margin of $21.5 million, up $2.2 million from $19.3 million
  • Net financial income of $7.8 million, compared to net financial expense of $25.3 million

Q3 2022 Consolidated Results Compared to Q3 2021:

  • Profit of $1.3 million, down $11.5 million from $12.8 million
  • Interest margin of $21.5 million, up $6.0 million from $15.5 million
  • Net financial income of $7.8 million, down $11.7 million from $19.5 million
  • Assets of $12.6 billion, down 4.8 per cent from $13.2 billion


Treasury’s third quarter profit was $2.5 million, up $20.3 million from a loss of $17.8 million in the second quarter, driven by a smaller decrease in the mark-to-market value of financial instruments during the quarter and included a $2.2 million increase in interest margin.

The third quarter profit decreased $12.0 million from the same quarter last year. The credit spreads widened as seen in most of 2022 reflecting the expected economic slowdown as a result of rising interest rates, persistent high inflation and geopolitical uncertainty. The market yields continued its upward trend but at a slower speed in the third quarter leading to a further decrease of $12.0 million of mark-to-market value of the Treasury portfolios.

The third quarter interest margin was up $6.0 million from the same period in 2021 as floating rate assets are repriced along with the interest rate increases. Strong loan growth by our members has resulted in continued withdrawal of their deposits at Central 1 which has resulted in a gradual decline of $1.1 billion in Treasury’s deposits from December 31, 2021.

Payments & Digital Banking Platforms and Experiences

Payments & Digital Banking Platforms and Experiences (DBPX) reported a loss of $3.7 million in the third quarter of 2022. This loss was largely in line with the same quarter last year and $2.8 million lower than the prior quarter. Investments in strategic initiatives which included the Payments Modernization and Forge 2.0 initiatives continued in the third quarter and are consistent with Central 1’s strategic priorities.
