§ 16.  Definitions used with regard to loan classes

 (1) Low risk denotes a loan regarding which there are no known circumstances that could cause a non-performance of a payment obligation resulting from the loan agreement.

 (2) Moderate risk denotes a loan regarding which there are evident circumstances that may deteriorate the customer’s solvency and may cause a non-performance of a payment obligation resulting from the loan agreement (e.g. increase of risk in the field of activities of the customer, deterioration of the customer’s financial ratios).

 (3) Average risk denotes a loan where the borrower has a deteriorated solvency rate, where incidental solvency problems have become evident and where the credit institution has justified grounds for an opinion that a full repayment of the loan according to the terms and conditions of the loan agreement is unlikely.

 (4) High risk denotes a loan where the borrower has a significantly deteriorated solvency rate, where the customer has ongoing solvency problems and where a full repayment of the loan according to the terms and conditions of the loan agreement or a full elimination of the loan from the collateral is unlikely.
