Abu Dhabi Commercial Bank (ADCB), UAE\'s third biggest lender, yesterday reported a fiscal second quarter net profit of Dh1.34 billion, compared to a net loss of Dh531 million in the corresponding period last year. \"The bank\'s second quarter profitability was driven by both interest income and non-interest income. Net interest margins have also improved for the second quarter,\" Deepak Khullar, ADCB\'s chief financial officer, told Gulf News, shortly after the bank announced its second quarter results. \"The costs to income level was held at 34 per cent level for the first half of 2011, which is higher than the 32 per cent for the first half of 2010,\" Khullar added. In its statement, ADCB said it reported a first-half 2011 net profit of Dh1.92 billion compared to a net loss of Dh306 million for the first half of 2010 with its earnings per share up at Dh0.33 compared to Dh0.07 in the corresponding period, a year earlier.

Commenting on the bank\'s results, Ala\'a Eraiqat, ADCB\'s chief executive officer, said: \"Over the first half of the year, we have succeeded in delivering both top and bottom line growth, while maintaining a conservative approach to risk management. We have maintained our disciplined approach to risk management and focused on delivering our strategic objectives to maximise shareholder return and build a stronger, more robust ADCB.\" Including the exposure to Dubai World, the bank\'s non-performing loan (NPL) ratio stood at 11.3 per cent and provision coverage at 40.3 per cent, compared to NPL ratio of 11.1 per cent and provision coverage of 44.1 per cent as of December 31, 2010.
