The financial statements of the National Bank of Kuwait
(NBK) showed a 7.6% year-on-year (YoY) increase in profits during the third quarter of 2019.
The profits amounted to KWD 93.08 million ($306.8 million) during Q3-19 when compared to KWD 86.54 million ($285.2 million) in Q3-18, the bank said in a filing to Boursa Kuwait on Thursday.
During the nine-month period of 2019, the bank logged 10.9% YoY higher profit at KWD 302.17 million, compared to KWD 272.4 million in the corresponding period in 2018.
The NBK attributed the profit hike to higher non-interest income, and lower provisions for credit losses and impairment losses.
