CS’s befor-tax profit reached CZK 295 mil. in 2000 and operating profit CZK 6.23 bil. Total assets rose to CZK 442.4 bil. from CZK 361.5 bil. in 1999. However, these CAS figures have only minor relevance as most fundamental valuations and market forecasts are based on consolidated IAS figures. CS should release consolidated IAS 2000 results on March 22.
