Askari Bank Limited (AKBL) announced earnings on Thursday for CY18 at PKR 4.4bn (EPS: PKR 3.51/share) depicting a YoY decline of 14% and QoQ decline of 26%.

The bank booked net provisioning expense of PKR 1.5bn during CY18 compared to net reversals of PKR 1.2bn SPLY.

OPEX increased 5% YoY while increasing by a drastic 27% QoQ.
