Ahli United Bank B.S.C. net profit surges by 6.2% to US$ 570.6 million

Ahli United Bank B.S.C. (AUB) reported a net profit attributable to its equity shareholders of US$ 570.6 million for the year 2016, representing a growth of 6.2% compared to a net profit of US$ 537.2 million in 2015. The net profit in Q4/2016 was US$ 128.5 million as compared to US$ 118.0 million in Q4/2015.

Despite the continuing general weakness in the regional and global economies, the positive operating results of AUB were underpinned by prudent risk taking, effective asset and liability management and judicious cost controls. Net interest income (NII) grew by 1.7% from US$ 814.7 million to US$ 828.2 million. The NII increase was achieved through a prudent re-deployment of funds within a conservative and diversified risk framework. Fees, commissions & other income grew by 9.7% (+ US$ 15.4 million) to US$ 173.3 million. As a result, total operating income grew by 5.2% to reach US$ 1,149.0 million (2015: US$ 1,091.9 million). The intelligent cost spend discipline instilled across all AUB Group units was sustained resulting in an improvement of the cost income ratio to 27.8% (2015: 28.3%).
