Development Bank of the Philippines Key Developments

Development Bank of the Philippines Announces Earnings Results for the Year 2015; Provides Earnings Guidance for the Year 2016

Development Bank of the Philippines announced earnings results for the year 2015. For the year, the bank said it raked in PHP 4.7 billion in net income, up from PHP 4.6 billion it made in 2014, despite difficult market conditions. Its revenues likewise consistently increased up by PHP 1.9 billion in 2015 to breach the PHP 21.5 billion mark driven by the expansion of interest on loans from its core lending business. For 2016, the bank is looking to further expand its net income from the slightly higher profits seen in 2015, which was driven by the continued expansion of its main businesses.

Development Bank of the Philippines Seeks Sale Of Al-Amanah Islamic

Development Bank of the Philippines is seeking sale of Al-Amanah Islamic Investment Bank of The Philippines. Development Bank of the Philippines has expressed its plans to privatize the Islamic bank, but this has not been carried out since. "We are approving its balance sheet, but the target really is to attract foreign equity partners or to privatize it in other words. That's the direction," Isidro A. Sobrecarey, Chairman of Al- Amanah Bank, said in a recent interview. Isidro A. Sobrecarey said that while the DBP can opt to carry out the sale of Al-Amanah Bank by themselves, having an Islamic banking regime in place would "attract more prospective investors." When asked about the plans of the central bank on Al-Amanah Bank, Amando M. Tetangco, Jr., Governor of Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas, said that they found it best to leave it to the Legislative to decide how the government will go about the planned sale, as well as on how the state will accommodate Islamic-based banking activities.
