SABB on Tuesday had reported a net loss widening to 6.87 billion riyals ($1.83 billion) in the quarter compared with a loss of 196 million riyals a year earlier, due to an impairment in goodwill worth 7.42 billion riyals.
Dubai's main share index dropped 0.9%, dragged down by a 2.2% fall in Emirates NBD Bank and a 1.7% drop in Emaar Properties.
The Abu Dhabi index edged up 0.1%, helped by a 0.5% rise in the country's largest lender First Abu Dhabi Bank.
Abu Dhabi raised $5 billion through a three-tranche bond offering on Tuesday, the oil-rich Gulf emirate's third foray into the international debt markets this year to prop up its finances after a fall in crude prices.
