KARACHI: The Board of Directors of Bank AL Habib Limited (the Bank) announced the Bank’s financial results for the half year ended 30 June 2021. The Bank posted profit after taxation of Rs 9.04 billion i.e. an increase of 25.10 percent compared to corresponding period last year.

The Bank’s profit before tax was recorded at Rs 14.34 billion, highlighting a growth of 18.51 percent as compared to corresponding period last year, driven by markup income as well as fees and commission income translating into an EPS of Rs 8.13 per share as against Rs 6.50 per share for the corresponding period last year.

Net markup income increased to Rs 27.40 billion, reflecting the Bank’s success in maintaining sustainable growth. Despite the challenging conditions and free online offerings during the pandemic Covid-19, the Bank managed to significantly increase its fee and commission income by 42.70 percent as compared to the first half of 2020.

Total Assets reached to Rs 1.85 trillion, an increase of 21.59 percent as compared to 31 December 2020. Net loans and advances grew by 18.23 percent to reach Rs 603.26 billion whilst the investments increased by 28.59 percent to reach Rs 983.66 billion, leading to overall growth in the total assets. Due to the Bank’s sound risk management practices and prudent financing strategy, the NPL ratio was recorded at 1.07 percent. The Bank achieved a coverage ratio of 189.43 percent which reflects the prudent approach adopted towards non-performing loans.

Deposits of the Bank increased 11.30 percent bringing the total deposits to Rs 1.22 trillion as on 30 June 2021. Gross Advances to deposit ratio stood at 50.31 percent.

The Bank continued with its strategy for outreach expansion, adding significant number of branches every year. The Bank’s branch network has now reached 939 branches / sub branches & 2 booths having coverage in 376 cities in Pakistan, 3 foreign branches (one each in Bahrain, Malaysia, Seychelles) and 4 representative offices (one each in Dubai, Istanbul, Beijing, Nairobi) outside Pakistan. In line with the Bank’s vision to provide convenience to customers, the Bank is operating a network of over1094 ATMs across Pakistan.

Pakistan Credit rating Agency (PACRA) has upgraded the Bank’s long term entity rating from AA+ (Double A plus) to AAA (triple A) while maintaining the short term entity ratings at A1+ (A One plus). The long term credit rating (AAA) denotes the highest credit quality with the lowest expectation of credit risk, and indicates exceptionally strong capacity for timely payment of financial commitments.

The ratings of our unsecured, subordinated Term Finance Certificates (TFCs) have also been upgraded from AA (Double A) to AA+(Double A plus) for TFC-2018 and from AA- (Double A minus) to AA (Double A) for TFC-2017 (perpetual). These ratings denote a very low expectation of credit risk emanating from a very strong capacity for timely payment of financial commitments.–PR
