Gulf International Bank B.S.C. Key Developments

Gulf International Bank Reports Consolidated Earnings Results for the Nine Months Ended September 30, 2014

Gulf International Bank reported consolidated earnings results for the nine months ended September 30, 2014. For the period, the company reported net income after tax of $72.7 million compared with $101.5 million in the prior year period. Excluding these exceptional income items, net income was $7.9 million lower than the prior year period due to a $16.1 million year-on-year increase in operating expenses. Net income after tax in the third quarter was $22.5 million, 7% up on the second quarter. Total income at $200.7 million was $10.5 million or 5% lower than the prior year. Excluding the exceptional income referred to above, total income was $10.4 million up on the prior year with a notable 10% year-on-year increase in the strategically important fee and commission income, reflecting success in the cross-sell of non-asset based products and services to the bank's customers. Net interest income at $117 million for the nine months was $2.7 million down on the prior year period. The year-on-year decrease was principally attributable to higher costs associated with balance sheet management initiatives that form part of an on-going programme to minimise the mismatch between the maturities of assets and liabilities.

Gulf International Bank B.S.C. (GIB) Reports Consolidated Earnings Results for the Second Quarter and Six Months Ended June 30, 2014

Gulf International Bank B.S.C. (GIB) reported consolidated earnings results for the second quarter and six months ended June 30, 2014. For the period, the company reported net income after tax of $50.2 million compared to $60.6 million in the prior year period. Total income was $134.4 million was $4.8 million or 4% up on the prior year with year-on-year increases recorded in all income categories with the exception of foreign exchange income and trading income. Net interest income at $76.6 million for the six months was $0.4 million up on the prior year period. The year-on-year increase in net interest income principally reflected further increases in both loan volumes and loan margins as the Bank successfully reorientates its lending activities from transactional-based long term project and structured finance to relationship-based large and mid-cap corporates. The resultant increase in net interest income was partially offset by lower interest received from impaired loans, which were exceptionally high in 2013, and higher costs associated with balance sheet management initiatives. Trading income at $2.4 million compared to a $7.7 million profit in the prior year period. However, the prior year profit included an exceptional $5.9 million fair value gain on a fund investment arising on the fund's recovery of a previously written off investment. For the second quarter, net income after tax was $21.1 million.
