Bahrain - Arabstoday

Gulf Finance House (GFH) has reported net profits of $5.7 million for the period ending June 30, 2012, as compared to $0.7 million for the same period in 2011. In the second quarter (Q2) of this year, the Bank reported a profit of $4.7 million, as compared to a net loss of $11.2 million for the same period in 2011. This was mainly driven by income earned from management fees and restructuring of debt. Total income for the first half of 2012 reached $32.6 million, similar to last year, when the Bank recorded a total income of $32.8 million. Total expenses decreased from $32.1 million to $26.8 million, a 17 per cent reduction compared to the same period last year. Commenting on the announcement, Hisham Alrayes, Acting Chief Executive Officer at GFH said: “The surge in the Bank’s net profits for the first half of this year is a result of the successful restructuring of some of our facilities, and the income earned from the management fees.” “The restructuring was extremely positive for the Bank, as it allowed us a greater degree of financial flexibility as we continue to focus on accelerating our business growth with the aim of returning to long-term profitable growth, as well as significantly bolstering our asset liability profile,” Hisham Alrayes added. “I am extremely confident that, with the continued support of our shareholders, board members, and the Central Bank of Bahrain, Gulf Finance House will see continued operational stability in the short term and sustainable profitability in the long term. I would also like to thank our employees for their commitment and efforts that has led to these positive results, particularly during the restructuring process.” During the past six months, Gulf Finance House successfully restructured the $45 million remaining debt on a syndicated Wakala facility worth $100 million. In addition, the Bank also obtained approval from its Sukuk holders to restructure its outstanding debt amounting to US$110 million. Both debts will mature in 2018 and provide a two-year grace period for the repayment of the principal amounts.   From:Gulftoday
