As the recognition of the company’s income is delayed compared to the period of the loans granted, the rapid growth of the loan volumes allows for a faster growth of income in the future. Revenue related to the issuance and management of electronic money grew by 23% in the quarter compared to the same quarter in 2021. Q4 growth outpaced that of 2022 as a whole. This was mainly driven by increased volumes of payment initiation services.
