Global Trust Bank (GTB) has doubled its operating profits in the 2QFY01 fueled by higher operating margins. The operating profit margins of the bank improved by 700 basis points due to lower interest cost.

However, profits of the bank actually declined by 20% excluding the provisions for depreciation in the value of investments (The investment portfolio of the bank has been classified in terms of RBI guidelines). Also the decline in other income by 67% led to lower growth in profits.

During the first half ended September 2000 the bank's advances witnessed an increase of 33% and deposits grew by 44%. Its credit/deposit ratio however, declined to 50% (from 55% in 1HFY00). GTB has healthy capital adequacy ratio of 14.1% as on September 2000.

At the current market price of Rs 86 GTB is trading at a P/E multiple of 8 times its 2QFY01 annualised earnings with a Price/Book value ratio of 1.7 times. The business drivers of the bank in future would be its thrust on retail banking, investment banking and e-commerce initiatives.
