Dubai, October 23, 2013
Abu Dhabi Commercial Bank (ADCB) reported a 47 per cent rise in third-quarter net profit on Wednesday, beating analysts' expectations, because of an increase in net interest income and lower provisions.
The bank posted a net profit of 920 million dirhams ($251 million) in the three months to September 30, up from 626 million dirhams a year ago, it said in a bourse statement.
Seven analysts polled by Reuters had estimated an average third-quarter profit of 772 million dirhams. - Reuters
