Return on Equity stood at 13.73% and Return on Assets at 1.66%. Excluding the impact of the one-off gain from the sale of property in the second quarter and adjustments due to the CREATE Law, net income would have been P26.8 billion for an ROE of 12.05% and ROA of 1.46%.


Total revenues reached P87.5 billion, up 22.1% year-on-year, boosted by the 20.5% growth in net interest income to P61.6 billion on the back of continued loan growth and sustained expansion in average net interest margin for the year by 23 bps to 3.53%.



Non-interest income grew 26.2% to P25.8 billion driven by the one-off gain in asset sale, gains in foreign exchange transactions, and fees from the credit cards business.


Total operating expenses stood at P40.1 billion, up 9.9% compared to the previous year, on higher regulatory, technology, and transaction-related costs. Cost-to-income (“CIR”) ratio was 45.8%. Excluding the impact of the asset sale, CIR was at 48.6%.
