GTB: Acquisition target?

Feb 19, 2002

Despite challenging business environment, private sector banks in general reported a strong rise in interest income, which boosted their profit growth. Global Trust Bank, on the other hand, maintained its dismal performance in the third quarter of FY02. A 14% drop in income from operations is reflective of loss of confidence in the bank.

The bank is facing stiff competition in the lending business and its relatively higher cost of borrowings has led to a steep decline in operating margins over the quarters. During the first nine months of FY02, GTB posted operating loss of Rs 531 m (excluding other income). Its interest income from advances fell by 17% and income from investments too was lower by 5%. These two revenue streams, which account for about 98% of total interest income witnessed a decline of 12%.

A sharp rise in other income however, enabled the bank to report profits in the first nine months of FY02. Other income contributed 23% to total income from 14% in the comparable previous period. During the period the bank provided higher amount for bad loans resulting in four fold rise in provision figure. This contributed to the 71% drop in net profits.
