The issue here is Capital and apparently it looks like NSSF and the Treasury are set to pony up.

The bank attributed the loss to heavy provisions and loan impairment charge which increased by Sh3.2 billion over the period.
The banks non performing loan portfolio is said to have skyrocketed in the final quarter of 2015.
NBK acting managing director Wilfred Musau said the reduction in profits resulted from heavy bad debt provisions and higher interest expenses.
Increasing provisions is a prudent practice in accounting. We have further put elaborate steps in place to manage the recovery of this position, Ms Musau said.


Well we knew this was coming.

(a) THAT subject to receipt of requisite regulatory approvals, the sum of Kenya Shillings one hundred and forty million (KShs 140,000,000) being part of the amount standing to the credit of revenue reserves be capitalised and accordingly that such sum be set free for distribution amongst the shareholders of existing ordinary shares in the capital of the Company in the share register as at 27th March 2015, to be allocated on or about 27th April 2015, on the condition that, the same be not paid in cash but applied in paying up in full at par twenty eight million (28,000,000) of the unissued ordinary shares of KShs 5.00 each in the authorized share capital of the company, and that such twenty eight million (28,000,000) shares credited as fully paid up be accordingly allotted to such shareholders in the proportion of one (1) of such new share for every ten (10) of existing issued and paid up two hundred and eighty million (280,000,000) shares then held by such shareholders respectively (fraction of a share to be disregarded), and that, the shares so distributed shall be treated for all purposes as an increase of the nominal amount of the capital of the Company held by each such shareholder and not as income and further that such shares shall rank pari passu for all purposes with the existing shares in the capital of the Company, and the directors be and are hereby authorised and directed to give effect to this resolution and (b) THAT should any of the said twenty eight million (28,000,000) bonus shares not be issued by reason of fractions of a share being disregarded the same be retained as unallocated in the Companys reserves .

The bank spent Sh1.1 billion to retrench 190 employees as part of its plans to cut its operating expenses which still increased 12.2 per cent to Sh7.5 billion.

National Bank reported FY 2014 Earnings where the net profit declined to Sh870.7 million compared to Sh1.1 billion in 2013. The Profit suppression was characterised by the CEO Munir Ahmed

We have supplemented that with the voluntary retirement for 190 staff where we paid 1.1 billion shillings.

We are changing the wheels of a moving car, Ahmed said to Reuters


I am still struggling to understand how EPS has risen when profit after Tax is down.
However if you strip out the effect of the 1.1b retrenchment charge it was a commendable performance
FY Earnings through 31st December 2013 versus 31st December 2012
FY EPS earnings per share rose to 2.32 shillings versus 1.52 shillings in 2012 +52.63%
FY dividend per share was raised to 0.33 shillings from 0.20 shillings +65%

Commentary via Reuters

National Bank of Kenya posted a 57 percent jump in pretax profit to 1.81 billion shillings ($20.88 million) last year and its plans to raise capital from shareholders are on track, it said on Wednesday.
Munir Ahmed, the bank's managing director, told an investor briefing the bank plans to add seven new branches, to appoint 1,400 agents across the country and to launch new cash points as well as Internet and mobile phone-based banking.
We are increasing our capital by way of a rights issue (by) 10 to 13 billion shillings. he told an investor briefing.
The bank said its provisions for bad debts dropped to 288 million shillings during the year from 726 million shillings.
During the year under review, National ventured into new business segments like bancassurance, investment and corporate banking, Ahmed said.
