Clydesdale Bank PLC Reports Earnings Results for the Six Months Ended March 31, 2015

Clydesdale Bank PLC reported earnings results for the six months ended March 31, 2015. For the period, the company reported statutory after-tax profit of £114 million against £72 million a year ago. Interest income and similar income of £554 million compared to £566 million a year ago. Net interest income was £390 million compared to £384 million a year ago. Total operating income of £524 million compared to £477 million a year ago. Operating profit before impairment losses of £161 million compared to £137 million a year ago. Profit on ordinary activities before tax of £133 million compared to £87 million a year ago. Profit attributable to equity holders of the parent of £114 million compared to £72 million a year ago. Net cash provided by operating activities of £349 million compared to net cash used in operating activities of £341 million a year ago. Purchase of tangible fixed assets was £8 million compared to £15 million a year ago. Purchase of intangible assets was £3 million compared to £5 million a year ago. Operating profits rose due to a combination of lower impairment losses on credit exposures and an exceptional gain attributable to a capital restructure in December 2014. Net interest income climbed by 1.7% to £390 million as a result of higher income from housing lending and lower term deposit costs. A more pronounced increase was prevented by lower business lending income, which was brought about by subdued demand for business credit and the managed run-off of lower yielding assets.

Clydesdale Bank to Close Eight Branches in Scotland; Plans New Branch Concept in Aberdeen

Clydesdale Bank has announced plans to close eight further branches in Scotland as it continues to overhaul its high-street estate. It said sites in Denny, Kilwinning, Glasgow Springburn, Dundee, Helensburgh, Forres, Dollar and Hamilton will be shutting in the coming months. However, the 28 staff employed across the locations are being offered the chance to be redeployed to nearby branches. Dozens of other staff in England will also be offered the chance to continue employment in alternative locations with 11 sites there also to close while business centres and branches in Gloucester, Lincoln, York and Leicester will share premises. The bank announced last year it was shutting 28 branches but would invest £25 million in overhauling its high-street network. That programme has brought closures in Aberdeen, Auchterarder, Blairgowrie, Bothwell, Bridge of Allan, Bucksburn, Cupar, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Haddington, Kinross, Kirkcaldy and Whitburn. The bank is investing in new branches. A new branch concept in Aberdeen, which brings together commercial, private and retail operations in one location, is being trialed and if successful could be rolled out to other cities.
