“Despite the unrest experienced in the market for the majority of the second quarter, we are pleased with our achievements and 2Q results”, said Mr. Mark Arnold, President & CEO of Bank of Ayudhya.

“Profitability grew, and we achieved good loan growth. We had an extremely strong take up for our Baht 20 Billion subordinated debenture offering, reflecting investor confidence in the KRUNGSRI Group’s operating fundamentals, stability and potential. After the close of 2Q, the Bank entered into an agreement to sell selected NPLs with a book value of Baht 5.3 Billion.  As the Bank has already fully provided for these loans no gain or loss will be realized on this transaction. It will, however, reduce NPLs down further to Baht 44.4 Billion, a reduction of more than 10% from the 2Q closing balance.”

“What we have achieved year-to-date reflects the roll out of the clear strategy we set out at the start of the year to: Integrate, Optimise and Accelerate, despite the significant market challenges in April and May. The integration of our recently acquired businesses is going well and we continue our efforts in driving synergies and leveraging the full scale and benefits of the whole KRUNGSRI Group for our customers and partners.” Mr. Arnold added.
As of 30 June 2010, the Bank recorded Baht 852 billion in total assets, Baht 619 Billion in loans and Baht 523 Billion in deposits. The Bank has a strong capital base with BIS ratio of 17.7% and tier 1 capital of 12.0%.
