Triad Financial is one of the world’s largest financial services companies.
It is also one of its biggest losers.
The company says it has experienced a massive decline in business, and is now “one of the most distressed firms in the world”.
In the past decade, the company’s revenues fell by nearly 10% on a year-on-year basis and its losses nearly tripled to $8.2bn in the year to March 31.
“We were in a bad spot from the beginning,” said Triad’s chairman, Andrew O’Connell.
“We had the lowest operating profit and the lowest net loss in the triad group, and it was clear that things were going to be very difficult.”
Then we were hit by the housing market bubble, and things got worse.
“Triad’s troubles have been well documented.
It was one of only two UK banks to fail, and suffered a total of £12bn in losses during the financial crisis.
In May last year, the bank announced it was seeking to buy back shares to stem losses.
Triad said it was still in talks with the government to secure support for its restructuring plan.
The government has since approved its plan, and has set a deadline of October for the company to complete its restructuring and make its books sounder.
‘It’s all going to collapse’In March, Triad announced that it was closing all its retail banking branch offices in England and Wales, while the majority of its retail branch network would be closed.
Since the crisis, Triads annual net profit has fallen by nearly 30%, to £1.3bn in 2016-17.
But it said that the company had been able to make a net profit of £2.6bn in 2017-18, as it closed retail branches in more than 100 countries.”
We have made substantial progress in reducing costs, but the underlying fundamentals are still very shaky.””
In the last six months, we have seen a dramatic drop in our profitability.
We have made substantial progress in reducing costs, but the underlying fundamentals are still very shaky.”
Triad has been hit by a huge wave of mortgage defaults, and this has caused some significant stress.
“The impact on the financial stability of the triads business is also likely to have been significant.”
‘We’re in a position where we can’t make any more changes’The bank said it had not yet determined whether it could make a profit this financial year, and was likely to be unable to do so in the foreseeable future.
In its most recent quarterly report, Triadic revealed that it had seen a 40% decline in total revenue, and had to borrow more money to pay down debt.
Trippys chief executive, Mike O’Brien, said the bank had not been able “to continue to sustainably grow and grow our businesses without additional capital”.
‘No longer a viable business’He said Triadic had been in “financial trouble for a long time”.
“We have a very challenging financial position that is based on strong performance in the banking business, which has been driven by high operating profit,” he said.
He said it would be “unfair” to reduce the bank’s workforce by 10%, and that the bank was still committed to reducing its costs.
However, Triada said that it would continue to focus on increasing its cash reserves.
“While our cash reserves will decline, our cash balances are not declining, and we are in a very strong position to meet our obligations, in the longer term,” O’Briensaid.
And the company is planning to spend money on “major” capital expenditure.
O’Brien said that Triadic would “continue to take action on capital expenditure to support the future growth of our business”.
Triadic has been given more than £3bn by the government in a bailout package, and said it expects to have to pay back its loans within two years.
