Shareholders' equity at the end of the first half stood at Dh 4,462 million, 4% above the balance for the corresponding period of 2014 after payment of 2014 dividends.

Net interest income increased by 22% compared to the corresponding period of 2014, which translated into a 17% increase in the net operating income to reach Dh 316 million in 2015 compared to Dh 269 million in the same period of 2014.

Impairment charge on financial assets for the first quarter of 2015 increased by Dh 13 million from Dh 36 million in 2014 to Dh 49 million in 2015.

All the above led to the 16% increase in net profit for the first half of 2015 reaching Dh 176 million, against Dh 152 million for the same period of 2014. As a result, earnings per share for the period were up by 12% and reached 8.3 fils compared to 7.4 fils in 2014.
