Earning Review: Bank of Khyber suffers at the hands of fall in NII

August 22, 2019 (MLN): The Bank of Khyber has declared net earnings of Rs. 498 million (EPS: Rs. 0.5) for the half year ended June 30, 2019, which is 35.9% lower than the earnings of same period previous year.

The company was primarily led down by fall in net interest income by 11.8%. Decline in fee income by 13.17% and dividend income by 79% just contributed further to the bank’s misery. As a result of these adverse movements, the total income fell by 11%.

On the other hand, the net interest expense grew by merely 3.2%.

Nonetheless, the fall in income tax expense by 71% helped in restricting further decline in net earnings.
