Performance Highlights

The year 2017 was a significant period of change and progress for China Bank, marking a new chapter in our storied history. We achieved good business and financial results as we sustained our growth momentum, successfully completed a stock rights offer to bolster our capacity to pursue further business growth, highlighted by an investment grade credit rating.

In 2017, China Bank generated a record net income of P7.5 billion, up 16% on the back of sustained growth in core and fee-based businesses. Total assets expanded 19% to P751.4 billion. Gross loans grew 16% to P454 billion due to strong demand across all segments, particularly consumer loans, which jumped 25%, and corporate loans, which rose 19%. Stronger focus on credit underwriting standards and disciplined collection efforts led to a milestone reduction in our NPL ratio to 1.4% – lower than industry levels – as non-performing loans (NPL) dropped P900 million or 12.3%. Continued provisioning improved the loan loss coverage ratio to 99% from 91% (consolidated level) and to 175% from 153% (parent bank). Total deposits rose 17% to P635.1 billion, boosted by 24% growth in low-cost funds, resulting to healthy CASA (checking & savings accounts) ratio of 54%, while the loans-to-deposit ratio was steady at 71%.  Total capital funds grew 32% to P84 billion with the P15-billion stock rights offer completed in May 2017. The Bank‘s common equity tier 1 (CET 1) and total capital adequacy ratios stood at 13.47% and 14.22%, respectively, well above the minimum regulatory requirement.
