From Kestrel

Loans and advances (net) declined by 1.1% yy to KES 113.0bn. On a YTD basis, the decline stood at 7.9%.
Customer deposits increased by 17.6% yy to KES 224.5bn. On a YTD basis, the customer deposits growth stood at 20.3%. This is especially notable given that StanCharts cost of customer deposits remain unchanged for the period at 3.0%.
StanCharts loan to deposit ratio now stands at 50.4%, one of the lowest across the banking sector. We continue to believe that StanChart will accelerate lending going forward, and especially from a NIM perspective, this would be a positive.
Operating expenses (inclusive of loan loss provisions) increased by 20.7% yy to KES 8.5bn, above our expectations of KES 7.6bn, largely on account of increased provisions (CoR as at 1H17 stood at 2.8%). The cost to income ratio increased to 63.0% from 48.4% in 1H16.
Excluding provisions, operating expenses were largely in line with estimates. Notably, staff costs increased by 8.2% yy to KES 3.3bn. Cost to income ratio excluding provisions stood 44.8%. As per our conversations with management, the staff costs have largely been driven by shared services staff (who had been rationalized towards the end of 2016) working as consultants to transfer shared services operations to StanChart Chennai. We expect staff costs to come down significantly in 3Q17 onwards as the shared services consultants now complete their projects.
Of particular interest is the trend in loan loss provisions, which increased by 68.5% yy to KES 2.3bn from 1.4bn in 1H16. Gross NPLs stood at KES 16.9bn. As a result, the banks coverage ratio (excluding interest expenses) rose considerably to 40.1% from 33.3% at the end of 1Q17. This is the highest level of coverage StanChart has reported since at least 2013.
StanChart Bank currently trades at a trailing PE of 11.0 and a PB of 1.8. Subsequently, the dividend yield currently stands at 7.9%. RoAE at the end of 1H17 stood at 16.2%, driven largely by the increase in provisions.


Plenty of Dry Powder in my opinion.

Standard Chartered Bank published their 1H16 financial results this morning, EPS was up 32.6% yy to KES 14.97 and PBT increased 6.49% yy to KES 7.0bn. Net interest margins increased yy from 13.6% to 19.6%. Net interest income grew 13.8% yy to KES 10.0bn, this was mainly attributed to increase in yields by 8.9% yy as the loan book decreased by 7.29% yy to KES 114.3bn from KES 123.3bn in 1H15. The cost to income ratio decreased to 48.4% from 54.1% the previous year, this was on account of higher total operating income of 18.9% yy to KES 45.5bn, though this decreased by 42.9% ytd. The companys foreign exchange income increased by 48.8% yy. Gross NPLs almost doubled to KES 15.4bn (1.8x yy) from KES 8.3bn, however, there was a marginal decrease qq. Given the results that Stan Chart has recorded in 1H16, we expect full year results to be positive, as we do not expect a sharp increase in loan provisions in 2H16, similar to that recorded in 2H15. Furthermore, we understand the group is actively seeking to work out previous non performing loans and we expect to see the benefits of this in 2H16. The companys Board of Directors have announced an interim dividend per share of KES 6.00. kestrel Research

Final Dividend of 12.50 [Interim of 4.50 already paid] 17.00

The profit drop was due to three factors, StanChart chief executive Lamin Manjang noted in a statement.

The profit drop was due to three factors: an increase in the non performing loans portfolio, the financial impact of the restructuring from the updated group strategy and a one off net capital gain in 2014 relating to the disposal of a property, StanChart chief executive Lamin Manjang noted in a statement.

The banks non performing loans grew by 37 per cent to Sh14.1 billion, forcing the lender to set aside an additional Sh3.5 billion as provisions for the bad debt.

The provisions, which are accounted for as a deductible expense in profit and loss statement, rose to Sh4.8 billion from Sh1.3 billion in 2014.

The banks management is optimistic of bouncing back this year stating that it had a stronger balance and is in a more liquid position


I think This Set of Earnings is case of putting everything into it Kitchen sink and all.
I expect a much stronger FY 2016 especially because I think Stan Chart have seriously benefited from the flight to quality

From Commentary

Consumer Banking revenue growing by 45 per cent while Wholesale Banking revenue grew by 55 per cent.
The Banks cost income ratio has decreased to 38 per cent in the first half of 2012 compared to 48 per cent in the same period in 2011.
On the outlook for the rest of the year, Etemesi said, both the businesses enter the second half with good momentum, but we remain vigilant about the global outlook and the uncertainties within the political and economic environment in Kenya. Therefore we will continue to look for opportunities and take advantage of these to build and grow our business. The Bank is in great shape, has good momentum, and is superbly positioned for the future.

You will recall that our financial results for the first half of 2011 were significantly impacted by the sharp rise in interest rates which resulted in the revaluation of our trading book and thereby causing mark to market unrealised losses in the bond trading portfolio and derivatives. At the time we had predicted that as the said instruments matured, the losses would unwind and be recognised as gains in our profit and loss. This has largely happened as anticipated. Further, we entered the year with a well positioned trading book that allowed us to recognise significant realised gains. It is against this backdrop that we are announcing a great set of results.

Cost Income ratio of 37.7% down from 48.1% in 2011
Positive Jaws of 33% (the difference between revenue growth and cost growth)
Return on equity of 39% up from 28% in 2011.
In 2012, the cross sell ratio improved to 3.31 up from 2.67 in 2011


These were simply outstanding Results. The Comparison was flattered a Little because in H1 2011 StanChart took a Big Mark on their Bond Portfolio. I think they have a Lock on some key Break Through Clients like Tullow Oil which is what is lifting Wholesale Banking. These are noteworthy Results and Richard Etemesis Comments have the Final Word.

The Bank is in great shape, has good momentum, and is superbly positioned for the future.

At the H1 Stage PAT was running 11.937% behind the Previous H1 2010 Stage. At FY PAT is 8.567% that represents a Noteworthy Swing. Standard Chartered have evidently cut their GOK Bond Position by 52.126% but increased their Net Loan Book by 59.268%. I thought these Results considerably more than respectable.

Bonds hit StanChart Kenyas H1 profit Reuters

Standard Chartered Bank of Kenya posted a 14.6 percent fall in first-half profit, as operating costs rose and a jump in interest rates devalued its bond portfolio, it said on Wednesday.

Standard Chartered have marked their bond portfolio to market. This is something many of its peers avoided I thought the results were more than respectable, said Aly Khan Satchu, an independent analyst.

The bank said it was positive about the second half outlook as it unwinds corrosive trading positions in the bond market and increases lending to customers.

The overall financial results for the first half were significantly impacted by the sharp rise in interest rates, which resulted in the revaluation of our trading book, Chief Executive Richard Etemesi said in a statement.

The revaluation caused a mark to market unrealised loss in the banks bond trading portfolio and derivatives, leading to the drop in profit to 3.5 billion shillings ($37.8 million) from 4.1 billion shillings in the year earlier period.

During the period under review, the bank cut its investment in government securities by 39.6 percent to 31.5 billion shillings.

The bank has apparently repositioned its lending towards customers and the underlying organic growth metrics indicate a more forward posture, Satchu said.
