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%. NII witnessed strong growth during the year but net provisioning expenses and lackluster capital gains depressed earnings. Higher OPEX was the primary contributor to the bank’s QoQ downturn in earnings. The bank announced a dividend of PKR 1.00/share for the year.
