Samer Tamimi, Acting Chief Executive Offi­cer, commented, “We have seen another period of good financial and operating performance in Q 2017 with the Bank reporting an underlying Net Profit of AED 50 million. With the transformation strategy nearing completion since it started in H 2015, non-core assets now represent two per cent of the loan base. The benefits of branch rationalisation have resulted in operating expenses being robustly managed recording nine per cent reduction against prior year. These positive results provide further tangible evidence that our revised strategy is appropriate given the economic environment.”
