Commenting on these financial results, Mr. Naveed Khan, Managing Director of ABC Islamic Bank said; financial results for the first nine months of the year are encouraging based on new customer acquisition and balance sheet growth. The growth in operating income has come about from a gradual build-up in asset portfolio, notwithstanding lumpy repayments, accompanied by a healthy increase in fee and commission income. We remain optimistic looking forward.
