Seylan Bank made a steady start in 2018 by posting a profit after tax of Rs. 1,053 million in Q1 despite less than ideal market conditions.

Net interest income increased by 17.21% as the volume growth outperformed the impact arising from the narrowing of NIMs. Net fee and commission income witnessed a growth of 14.61% to reach Rs 995 million in 1Q 2018 as compared to Rs. 868 million for the comparative period. Initiatives put in place to harness fee generating business across various customer and market segments such as card related income, trade finance related fee income and fees from guarantees, remittances is progressing rapidly as reflected by the increases shown in fee based income.

Other operating income comprising of gains from trading, gains from financial investments, gains on foreign exchange and other income were reported as a net gain of Rs 366 million compared to net gain of Rs 238 million in 1Q 2017.

Impairment charges for loans and other losses for the period reached Rs 542 million as compared to a charge of Rs 346 million in Q1 2017. Individual impairment charges of Rs 380 million represent provisions specific credit exposures.Total Expenses recorded an increase of 10.46% from 2,705 million in the 1Q of the previous year to Rs. 2,988 million during the period under review. Expenses growth was witnessed by investments made in employees, IT and infrastructure, upgrading and refurbishment of branches etc.

The bank continued to focus on widening the roll-out of lean initiatives, workflow methods and automation across the bank in its pursuit towards rationalising expenditure on key controllable cost lines and inculcating a culture of working smarter across all the functions by the employees.

Loans and advances portfolio of the bank recorded a marginal growth of 3.01% to 289,302 million during the 1Q 2018 amidst rising interest rates. The growth in credit was driven primarily by term loans and overdrafts.

The overall deposit base recorded a marginal growth of 1.24% to 310,904 million by 1Q 2018 and a shift from low cost CASA to term deposits was noted which is partly due to increase in interest rates.
