2018 Annual Report
Financial performance in 2018 maintained its positive trend, despite a difficult operating environment, Bank ABC Islamic grew its income and profits. Business sentiment was subdued in our core GCC markets as the higher oil price that persisted for much of the year did not result in public sector spending, which has historically been the key driver for economic growth in the region. Even so, total operating income increased by 17.6 % while operating expenses decreased by 17%, resulting in a healthy 25.3% growth in net profit for the year. Illustrating Bank ABC lslamic's robust growth, the balance sheet expanded by 11.9% to US$1.7 billion at the end of 2018, up from US$1.6 billion at the end of the previous year. By the Grace of God, the portfolio proved resilient and there were no credit-related (i.e. FAS 30 stage 3) provisions for the year. Capital base remained extremely strong, as shown by a capital adequacy ratio of 34%, well above the regulatory requirement of 12.5%.

2016 Annual Report
Financial performance for 2016 has built on the good results shown in 2015. The de-risking process initiated in late 2015 for vulnerable sectors in the regional economy allowed us the benefit of reshaping balance sheet with higher yielding and lower risk weighted assets. Total balance sheet footings grew by 21.6% to $1.6 billion at yearend with an actual decrease of 6.7% in Risk Weighted Assets. Total operating income increased by almost 12% while operating expenses were kept flat, resulting in a healthy growth of 16% in Net Profit, despite a very challenging year. Most notably asset churn of $752 million, combined with lead managing Sukuk issues and Islamic Syndications, contributed to boosting fee income while retaining a 20:80 proportion between fee and margin income
