Union Bank of Colombo PLC reported a pre-tax profit of Rs.184.4 million for the first half of 2012, down 10.8 percent from a year earlier, the bank said releasing its interim results for the first half of this year.

Reporting on its performance for the six months ended in 2012, Union Bank of Colombo PLC (UBC) stated that noticeable upturn in performance was seen in several areas. Growth was highlighted in the bank’s core activities, showing a 53.5 percent year on year growth in the bank’s loan book to reach Rs 19.8 billion. Total Deposits of the bank reported a year on year growth of 45 percent to Rs 21.5 billion as at 30th June 2012. During the six months period, gross loans and advances increased by 15.49 percent and the total deposits increased by 11.2 percent.

Interest Income of the bank stood at Rs. 1,507 million with a 57.4 percent growth compared to the previous period. Interest expense showed a 98 percent growth due to the increasing interest rates and the growth in the base. The bank showed a noticeable growth of 65.7 percent in non-interest income for the period. Non-interest expenses of the bank also increased by 38.7 percent mainly due to expansion of the business operation. Considering the stagnated market conditions return from the equity portfolio continued with a negative impact for the second continuous quarter of the year. UBC showed a Net Asset Value of Rs.14.99 per share. The first dividend after the listing of Rs.0.15 per share was also declared during the quarter.

Anil Amarasuriya, Director/ Chief Executive Officer of Union Bank stated that these results were achieved against challenging market conditions. He emphasized that the bank has been building its core competencies to enhance the Bank’s future potential and its ability to emerge as a strong performer in the Industry. He further stated that with the predicted high economic growth rates, the banking and finance sector will contribute positively in driving the country’s way forward and that UBC will stand to gain from this growth in the coming months

Striving to be the preferred bank for the SME sector, Union Bank’s rapid expansion plan saw its branch network increasing to 34 branches by June 2012. Four new branches were opened in Badulla, Ambalangoda, Horana and Chilaw during the year.
