August 23, 2019 (MLN): Bank of Punjab’s half yearly net income has widened by 4.3% compared to last year as it has been recorded at Rs.4 billion (EPS: Rs.1.52 per share) compared to Rs.3.9 billion (EPS: Rs.4.46 per share) witnessed last year.

A massive leap of Rs.2 billion in net provision and write offs resulted in a mediocre increment in bottom line gains as the bank’s total income (Rs.15 billion) expanded by 35.5% (or Rs.3.9 billion) while the total non-mark-up expenses grew by only 19.2% (or Rs.1.1 billion) to Rs.7 billion.

Moreover, BOP’s tax payments grew by 23% to Rs.2.9 billion, marking a total rise of Rs.552 million.
