The bank was able to maintain the ratio of non-performing loans to total loans at 1.1%, a level considered to be the lowest amongst banks in the Middle East and North Africa. Provisions were conservatively managed, as the coverage ratio reached 123%, it said. The total operating income increased to QR5.7 Billion, up by 23.0% compared to the same period last year, as QNB Group succeeded in achieving strong growth across the range of revenue sources.

QNB Group continued to diversify its income sources, with net fees and commissions income increasing by 9.8% to QR659.9 million, while net gain from foreign exchange increased by 55.8% to QR315.1 million. The efficiency ratio (cost to income ratio) stood at 16.4%, compared to 15.8% in June 2011, one of the best ratios among financial institutions in the Middle East and North Africa. The bank attributed its high credit ratings from some of the leading rating agencies to its excellent overall performance. Based on the bank\'s strong capitalization and high credit ratings, QNB was named one of the World s 50 Safest Banks and one of the Safest Banks in the Middle East, according to the latest update published by Global Finance in April 2012. Among its achievements, the bank listed its successful launch of the Euro Medium Term Note Program (EMTN) Program in the international capital markets which amounted to US$1.0 Billion with a five-year maturity at a coupon rate of 3.375%.  (QNA)
