UTRECHT, Netherlands, Jan. 11, 2005 (PRIMEZONE) -- Rabobank Group clearly underwent a period of strong growth in 2004. During his New Year's speech, Mr H. (Bert) Heemskerk, chairman of the Executive Board, said he expects an increase in the financial results for 2004 of "approximately twelve percent". "I am satisfied with the outcome, it is a commendable result. I am particularly pleased by the fact that there was good performance across the entire breadth of the group."Heemskerk: "The local member banks have realised excellent growth despite a lacklustre economy and all the activities relating to consolidation aimed at improving the service provided to customers. The Wholesale division likewise achieved good results both nationally and internationally. Our country banking activities particularly grew at a strong pace. The subsidiary companies including Interpolis, De Lage Landen, Robeco, FGH, Rabo Real Estate, Gilde, Schretlen, Stroeve and Alex all performed extremely well. As a group we can be proud of our accomplishments," says the chairman of the Executive Board. "Our achievements have also not gone unnoticed in the market. Rabobank's own 'Jochem de Bruin' portrays us as we are: the underdog that has risen to become a leading bank that still remains nearby and involved in society."
