SME, Wholesale and Consumer Mortgage Loans Portfolio, rose 10%, 11%, and 21%, respectively; Cost to Income Ratio improved to 48.8%
Jakarta, 1 March 2017. PT Bank Danamon Indonesia, Tbk. (“Danamon”) today announced its full year 2016 financial results.
In 2015, Danamon laid the foundation for the transformation of Danamon and Adira Finance. This has brought positive results in terms of productivity and financial performance.
The Bank’s focus on several important initiatives in 2016 has shown its benefits and was reflected in the net profit growth. These initiatives included the implementation of the sales and distribution network, enhancements in the Bank’s digital channels, and overall improvement in service quality. Danamon will continue the program this year with the objective to provide better customer service quality and overall banking experience.
2016 performance reflects improved efficiency
Danamon recorded a net profit before taxes (NPBT) of IDR 4.5 trillion in 2016, which is a 39% growth as compared to a year earlier. This is due to growth in non-interest income, discipline in operating expense management, and improvement in cost of credit.
While most of Danamon’s businesses showed growth, Micro Banking remained under pressure. Excluding Micro Banking, Danamon’s NPBT would have improved to IDR 5.2 trillion. The management is executing its strategy to turn-around the business, including network rationalization, collection focus, and efficiency improvement.
Danamon booked an improved cost-to-income ratio of 48.8% in 2016 as compared to 52.0% in the previous year, as operating costs decreased by 4% to IDR 8.6 trillion. Cost of credit was recorded at IDR 4.4 trillion, which was a 12% improvement compared to a year ago.
Danamon’s net profit after taxes (NPAT) grew 12% to IDR 2.7 trillion.
Growth in SME, Wholesale and Consumer Mortgage loans
Danamon recorded double digit growth in the Small Medium Enterprises (SME), Wholesale segments and Consumer Mortgage. Wholesale Banking portfolio, consisting of Corporate, Commercial banking, and Financial Institutions, grew 11% to 37.4 trillion. Portfolio of the SME Banking segment increased 10% to IDR 24.7 trillion. At the same time, Consumer Mortgage grew 21% to IDR 4.4 trillion.
Overall loan portfolio and Trade Finance declined by 2% to IDR 127.3 trillion in 2016 from IDR 129.5 trillion at the end of 2015. Micro Banking loans, through Danamon Simpan Pinjam (DSP), declined 30% to IDR 10.2 trillion due to competition and weaker demand. Adira Finance booked a 5% year-on-year decrease in loans to IDR 44.4 trillion at the end of 2016. However, productivity improved towards the end of the year, with Adira Finance loans rising 2% in the fourth quarter. In contrast, industry’s sales of new motorcycle and commercial cars declined by 8% and 29%, respectively*.
Improved CASA ratio
In line with management’s Loan to Funding Ratio (LFR) target of 90-92%, the Bank reduced its need for funding. Third party funds declined, as Danamon let go of its higher-priced Time Deposits. As compared to 2015, third party funds decreased by 10% from IDR 117 trillion to IDR 105 trillion in 2016. However, Current and Savings Accounts (CASA) ratio favorably increased from 43% in 2015 to 46% at the end of 2016. CASA balances decreased by 3% to IDR 48.5 trillion, while Time Deposits decreased by 15% to IDR 56.9 trillion.
Healthy loan-to-funding ratio and capital
Danamon’s regulatory loan-to-total funding ratio (LFR) stood at 91.0% compared to 87.5% a year ago. Danamon’s LFR remained below Bank Indonesia’s threshold. Despite tighter liquidity in the overall banking system, Danamon managed to maintain its LFR at the targeted level.
Danamon’s consolidated capital adequacy ratio (CAR) stood at 20.9%, while bank-only CAR was at 22.3%.
Fee-based income grew 7% year-on-year
Danamon generated IDR 2.0 trillion in fee income, a 7% growth compared to 2015. The growth in fee-based income was supported by Adira Insurance, which grew by 1% to IDR 908 billion, cash management, which grew by 11% to IDR 325 billion, and bancassurance, which grew by 13% to IDR 281 billion.
Improvement in asset quality
In 2016, Danamon improved its asset quality through prudent enforcement of risk assessment procedures, disciplined collection and recovery of debts. Total non-performing loans decreased by 4% to IDR 3.7 trillion. Cost of credit ratio also improved to 3.5% from 3.8% in 2015. At the same time, restructured loans declined 9% to IDR 3.5 trillion. Gross non-performing loans ratio stood at 3.1%, which remained below the regulatory limit of 5%. The Bank expects asset quality to improve further this year.
