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.
