Commercial Bank of Ceylon PLC announced earnings results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2016. For the quarter, the company increased its group net profit 28.7% to LKR 3.26 billion during the quarter ended March 31, 2016 from a year ago, the interim results showed. This translated into an earnings per share of LKR 3.72 from LKR 2.90.

But the growth in the loan book was seen slowing down. The net interest income rose 12.1% year-on-year to LKR 8.17 billion amid slowing demand for credit but the bank maintained its net interest margin at 3.62% despite the rising interest rates were seen compressing the margins in the country's banking sector.
