Commenting on the Bank’s performance, H.E. Eissa Al Suwaidi, Chairman of ADCB said: “I am pleased to report that the Bank has announced another successful set of results, in line with the UAE’s continued growth and economic development against a backdrop of a struggling global economy.  ADCB’s positive financial results in the first half of the year, demonstrates the Bank’s commitment to its strategic pillars which resulted in providing shareholders with real value.”
Ala’a Eraiqat, member of the Board and Chief Executive Officer, commented on the results: “Over the first half of the year, we have succeeded in delivering both top and bottom line growth, whilst maintaining a conservative approach to risk management.  This was reflected in the increased portfolio impairment provisions of AED 275 mn for the first half of the year, taking the net portfolio impairment allowance to AED 1,918 mn as at 30 June 2011, 1.44% of the credit risk weighted assets.  We have maintained our disciplined approach to risk management and focused on delivering our strategic objectives to maximize shareholder return and build a stronger, more robust ADCB.
In the second quarter of 2011, in line with our UAE centric growth strategy, ADCB agreed to sell its stake in RHB Capital Berhad in Malaysia to focus on operations in the UAE.  The sale of ADCB’s stake in RHB contributed significantly to our profitability for the quarter and more importantly resulted in improvement of the Bank’s capital adequacy and liquidity levels.  As a consequence of our improved capital position, Standard & Poor’s increased the Bank’s rating to A/A-1 in June 2011.”
The Bank also today announced that it would convene an EGM of shareholders and approach all relevant regulatory authorities, to request permission to buy back up to 10% of its capital.
