Guaranty Trust Bank PLC (GTBank) posted an impressive topline as gross revenues advanced by 26.29% in Q3-2020. This was majorly driven by improved interest income and lower interest expenses despite the surge in impairment charges and drop in net fees and commission income.

Notably, net interest income advanced by 9.71% from N172.94bn to N189.74bn buoyed by a 1.80% increase in interest income and a 24.90% reduction in interest expenses.

The surge in impairment charges dragged net interest income

An unsurprising 267.40% surge in loan impairment charges motivated by CBN push on loan to deposit ratios and COVID-19 impacts on the credit quality of businesses reduced Net interest income to 5.53%. Specifically, impairment charges increased from N2.76bn to N10.14bn amid growth in private sector credit among major banks in Nigeria.

In a similar fashion, Net fees and commission income waned by 170.38% to N32.725bn from the N46.50bn recorded in Q3-2019 with major drag coming from lower credit-related fees and commissions, corporate finance fees and e-business income even with the slight increase recorded in account maintenance charges.

Declined cost management effectiveness and tax burden pressured bottom-line

Following the drag on fees and commission income, GTBank’s total operating income only advanced by 3.52% tolled by a 12.85% increase in operating expenses, this leads to a 1.93% drop in profit before tax.
