Riyadh, January 12, 2013
Saudi Hollandi Bank, Saudi Arabia's fourth-largest listed bank, said on Saturday its fourth quarter net profit rose 35.6 per cent compared to the same period last year due to higher operating income.
The lender said in a statement posted on the Saudi bourse's website it made SR313.4 million ($83.6 million) in the last three months of 2012 compared to SR231.2 million in the last quarter of 2011.
Saudi banks have enjoyed successive years of expansionary government budgets, ample liquidity and improving corporate loan demand.
Operating profit for the fourth-quarter grew by 9.2 per cent to SR550 million, Saudi Hollandi said, and income from special commissions increased by 10.5 per cent to 345.1 million.
