Expressing his satisfaction on the results, Dr. Fakhro commented that the Bank achieved steady progress despite a slower global economic growth environment. Dr. Fakhro thanked and appreciated the efforts of the Bank’s executive management team and the employees for their dedication.

Commenting on the Bank’s performance and future outlook, Mr. Abdul Razak Abdulla Hassan Al Qassim, Chief Executive Officer & Director said, “The strong growth in income is a result of our emphasis on booking quality assets and diversify the revenue streams by enhancing customer relationship, while efficiently managing the overall balance sheet. Looking ahead, we will continue to focus on new business opportunities and meet the expectations of our customers.”

The Net Interest Income for the six months period in 2012 was BD 31.54 million (US$ 83.88 million) compared to BD 26.84 million (US$ 71.38 million) for the corresponding period of the previous year, a strong growth of 17.5 % which is attributable to growth in earning assets and better balance sheet management.
