Seylan Bank said yesterday it has recorded an impressive first half performance with a profit after tax of Rs. 1.02 billion for the six months ended 30 June 2012.

Profit before VAT and income tax rose to Rs. 2.01 billion, as opposed to Rs. 832 million (before the exceptional VRS costs), a 142% growth over the corresponding period last year.

The bank’s strong performance was driven by growth in its core banking operations despite raising interest rates and controlled credit growth.

Net interest income increased by 15% to Rs. 4,276 million in 1H 2012, arising from selective growth in quality advances and effective management of margins.

The bank’s portfolio grew by 18% (annualised) in the six months of the year.

Non-interest income increased from Rs. 1,171 million to Rs. 1,237 million in 1H 2012. The main contributor to this was the growth in foreign exchange income which increased by 20% over the corresponding period last year.

During the six months under review the bank focussed considerably on controlling its overhead costs. The efforts on improving cost efficiencies have resulted in the improvement of the cost to income ratio to 67%, a reduction of 6% from December 2011.

The bank grew its deposit base by Rs. 10.3 billion despite a fiercely competitive environment and due to sustained and effective recovery strategies was able to reduce the NPA ratio (net of IIS) from 14.2% to 12.3%

General Manager/CEO Kapila Ariyaratne stated: “These results prove beyond doubt that the business expansion strategies backed by improvement in operational processes and focus on customer service and risk management are beginning to yield desired results, and now provides us an excellent platform to achieve sustained growth and improved profitability.”

During 1H 2012 the bank opened seven new branches/convenient centres and relocated three branches to more customer friendly locations. As at 30 June 2012, the bank network comprised of 138 branches/convenient centres and 139 ATMs.

Preparing for future growth, the bank has planned a debenture issue via a private placement for early October 2012. The bank intends to invest on identified key areas which are in line with the bank’s future growth strategies including new product development, branch expansion, service quality improvement, staff training and development and IT infrastructure.

Seylan Bank Chairman Mohan Pieris PC stated: “We are focused on achieving our Strategic Plan, which we formulated in the latter part of last year. We have also taken steps to improve our capital and governance structure for future growth strategies that have been planned.”

As a result of the strong half-yearly profits posted, earnings per share was at Rs. 6.04 (annualised), while return (profit before tax) on assets and return of equity was at 1.90% and 11.50% respectively.

Correct, it is encouraging to entire banking sector with semi annual operational results of SEYB. If they can maintain better performance in the next half of the financial year in line with their short term & long term vision...SEYB will be more competitive in the capital market...
