NDB Capital Holdings records impressive growth



Ashok Pathirage

The first quarter of 2013 was a highly successful period for NDB Capital Holdings PLC (NCAP) with the company recording Rs. 320 million in revenue compared to Rs. 64 million during the first quarter of 2012, a five-fold growth.

This increased revenue translated to a profit of almost Rs. 297 million at company level for the quarter, an over 6.5 fold growth compared to the Rs. 44 million recorded during the corresponding period of the previous year.

During this quarter, NCAP returned the capital gain of approximately Rs. 6.7 billion it recorded from the sale of direct and indirect stakes held in Aviva NDB Insurance PLC in 2012 to its shareholders by way of a dividend amounting to over Rs. 700 million and a repurchase of company shares amounting to Rs. 5.97 billion. As a result the company saw a 54% reduction of its assets from Rs. 11.7 billion as at the end of 2012 to Rs 5.4 billion as at the end 2013Q1. The company recorded strong growth in performance even without the corresponding return from these funds.

NCAP's net profitability improved significantly driven by the efficient asset allocation policy adopted by the management. As a result, the net profit margin increased to a healthy 93% for the period under review, compared to the 69% in the first quarter of 2012.

Following the trend of NCAP, the group revenue too increased by 3.5 times to Rs. 434 million in 2013Q1 compared to Rs. 121 million made in the corresponding quarter of the past year. Seventy four percent of the group revenue for the period came from fund based activities at company level whereas the rest of the revenue was from its group companies, NDB Investment Bank Limited, NDB Stockbrokers (Pvt) Limited and NDB Wealth Management Limited. The group profitability too increased significantly by over 250% to Rs. 337 million in the quarter under review compared to Rs. 95 million in 2012 Q1.

Chairman, Ashok Pathirage said, "NCAP's leadership position in the investment banking sphere was reiterated during the past quarter when NDB Investment Bank (NDBIB) was recognised as the best investment bank in Sri Lanka by Global Banking and Finance Review."

NCAP is a 99.6% owned subsidiary of National Development Bank PLC (NDB).
