Speaking about the financial results for the Three months of 2022, Alinma Bank CEO, Mr. Abdullah bin Ali Al-Khalifa, affirmed that the performance was in line with the strong operating foundations of the bank, which continued to take advantage of growth opportunities, especially those related to positive transformations in the kingdom in line with its Vision 2030 initiative. Al-Khalifa pointed out that the positive results were a direct result of the 12.5% increase in total operating income during the Three months of 2022, which was mainly due to increases in net financing and investment income, income from the fair value of investments through income statement, exchange income, and other operating income partly offset by the slight decline in fee income.
Regarding the details of the financial results, Al-Khalifa affirmed that all main banking activities showed positive growth during the period. Total assets increased to SAR 179,518.8 million, compared to SAR 159,951 million in the previous year, an increase of 12.2%. The financing portfolio increased by 10.1% to reach SAR 128,965.1 million as of March 31, 2022, compared to SAR 117,148.9 million in the previous year. As a result, net income from financing and investment increased by 8.7% to SAR 1,309.5 million, compared to SAR 1,204.8 million for the same period in the previous year. Also the customer deposits increased by 6.1% to SAR 128,035.2 million compared to SAR 120,707 million in the previous year. Similarly, the financial indicators reflected a significant improvement during the period, as the coverage ratio of non-performing loans reached 150%, compared to 132.7% for the same period last year.
