Total Revenues for the nine-month period declined by 6.0% to P71.6 billion. Net Interest Income was lower by 5.6% to P51.2 billion, as NIM contracted by 21 bps from 3.51% to 3.31% brought about by a decline in yields across loan portfolios and treasury assets.

While Non-Interest Income was down by 7.0% to P20.5 billion on lower trading income, this was cushioned by a 27.2% increase in fee income, reflecting the strong recovery across all business lines.

Total Operating Expenses as of September 30, 2021, reached P36.5 billion, up 3.5% driven by higher technology costs as the bank continues to invest in digitalization. The cost-to-Income Ratio stood at 50.95%.

The bank booked Provisions of P10.3 billion, lower by 49.9% than the P20.5 billion booked over the same period last year. NPL ratio declined from 2.98% to 2.73%, with NPL Coverage ratio increasing from 100.45% to 130.72%.
