CFX profit up 870 percent


CFX Merchant Bank which was only turned around last year made a profit of $1.4 billion in the first half of this year, nearly 10 times what it made in the first half of last year and some $300 million more than the net profit for last year.

Net interest income shot up from $16 million to $1 billion while fees and commissions increased from $218 million to $2 billion.

Operating income improved from $253.8 million to $3.2 billion but profit before taxation was reduced to $2.1 billion following the deduction of operating expenses of $792.2 million up from $108.8 million last year.

The provision for bad debts went up from $50 000 to $118.2 million.

There was a loss from investment securities of $165.1 million.

The bank says it expects to perform better in the current half.
