Meezan Bank, the country’s largest Islamic bank, posted earnings of Rs86.02 billion for calendar year 2023, up nearly 91% from the profit-after-tax Rs45.14 billion in the same period of the preceding year.

According to a notice sent to the Pakistan Stock Exchange (PSX) on Thursday, earnings per share clocked in at Rs47.66 for the year, as compared to Rs25.1 in 2022, on a consolidated basis.

The Board of Directors also announced a final cash dividend for year 2023 at Rs8 per share i.e. 80%. This is in addition to interim dividend already paid at Rs12 per share i.e. 120%.

The increase in profit was led by a sharp 86% year-on-year spike in profit/return earned on Islamic financing and related assets, investments and placements.

The net profit/return rose from Rs121.82 billion in 2022 to Rs226.49 billion in 2023, a robust increase of nearly 86%. Meezan’s profit margin in CY23 stood at 52.4%, similar to the previous year.
