2.3 Core Operations

Banks act as payment agents by conducting checking or current accounts for customers, paying cheques drawn by customers on the bank, and collecting cheques deposited to customer& current accounts. Banks also enable customer payments via other payment methods such as telegraphic & mail transfers, POS, and ATM etc.. Banks borrow money by accepting funds deposited on current accounts, by accepting term deposits, and by issuing debt securities such as banknotes and bonds. Banks lend money by making advances to customers on current accounts, by making installment loans, and by investing in marketable debt securities and other forms of money lending.

Banks provide almost all payment services, and a bank account is considered indispensable by most businesses, individuals and governments. Non-banks that provide payment services such as remittance companies are not normally considered an adequate substitute for having a bank account. Banks borrow most funds from households and non-financial businesses, and lend most funds to households and non-financial businesses, but non-bank lenders provide a significant and in many cases adequate substitute for bank loans, and money market funds, cash management trusts and other non-bank financial institutions in many cases provide an adequate substitute to banks for lending savings to.

Like other commercial banks SIBL also provides all the services mentioned above.

Annual Report

This report would be very helpful and handy for potential investors and policy makers. This report also explained different accounting policies. But the report lacks about the in- depth analysis of financial position. In addition to that, it does not discuss about the industry performance. Moreover, the report does not tell me about the trend of financial performance. In addition to that, emphasis is given on that information that creates positive impression about the company and presents the information in their own way.

Financial Statement Analysis of SOCIAL ISLAMI BANK LTD.

The purpose of this chapter is to discover financial Statement analysis of SOCIAL ISLAMI BANK LTD. Limited so that management and the public can identify the most critical problems inside the Bank and develop ways to deal with those problems. Banks today are under great pressure to meet the objectives of their shareholders, employees, depositors and borrowing customers, while somehow keeping government regulators satisfied that the banks policies, loans, and investments are sound. I have separated 10 significant ratios into three broad categories after analyzing some important findings from Income statement and balance sheet of last five years of the bank. The ratios are as follow: A. Profitability Ratios 1. Return on Assets (ROA) 2. Return of Equity (ROE) 3. Net Interest Margin (NIM) 4. Price/Earnings Ratio (P/E Ratio) 5. Earnings Per Share (EPS) 6. Book Value Per Share 7. Loan deposit Ratio 8. Payout Ratio 9. Dividend Yield Ratio B. Liquidity Ratio 1. Current ratio 2. Inventory turnover ratio 3. Gross Profit ratio 4. Net Loan to Total Assets C. Debt Utilization Ratio 1. Debt to Total Assets 2. 2. Times Interest Earned Ratio (TIE) Apart from the above mentioned ratio analysis, I have conducted the following analysis: 1. Cash Flow Statement Analysis;

2. Stockholders Equity Statement Analysis;

Income Statement & Balance Sheet Total Income

Total income of SIBL has been on increase for last five years except in 2008. The following figure shows the total income of SIBL in past five years. The trend is quite clear. Total income increases significantly from 2008 to 2012. Total Income (in million)

8000 7000 6000 5000 4000 3000 2000 1000 0







Profit Trend
The nominal value of profit is increasing each year. From Tk.628 million in the year 2008, the figure has now grown to Tk. 1193 million in the year 2012. But the growth in last 5 years in profit is not very high. The rate as the figure indicates has settled for a stable position.

Income Expenditure Comparison

The percent of expense to the income has remained steady over the years. It was lowest in 2008 and then it increases 3% each year in 2008 and 2012.

Deposit and advance comparison

The advance and deposit ratio has been increased over the years. From 75.7% in 2008, it reached almost 82% in 2012. So the bank is getting more aggressive as it is getting older.

Liquidity ratio measures the SOCIAL ISLAMI BANK LTD.s short-mn ability to pay its maturing obligations. Two most important liquidity ratios, current ratio and net loan to total assets, are discussed in this section.

Current Ratio: The current ratio is the ratio of total current asset to total current liabilities of the bank. This ratio is also helpful in evaluating working capital position because working capital is the excess of current assets over current liabilities. The figure, depicted on the next page, shows the current ratio of the bank over the past five years:

The above figure shows that the current ratio of the bank was increasing from the year 2008 till 2012. After 2012, current ratio started to decline and the year 2012 saw the lowest current ratio for the bank. So it can be said that the liquidity position of the bank is relatively weak. Net Loan to Total Assets: Another way of measuring liquidity for financial institution is to measure the net loan to total assets. It will help to measure amount the bank disburse in the form of loans and advances from the assets. The ratios of net loan to total assets are represented by the following figure.

2013 2012 2011 2010 2009 2008 2007 2006 2005 2009 2008 59% 2010 62% 2011 59% 71%



As the above figure suggests the Net loan to total assets ratio has increased notably in last two years. Again it can be observed that the liquidity position of the bank is relatively weak.

Cash Flow Statement Analysis

In the previous chapter, I have analyzed the ratio that is mostly related to income statement and balance sheet. In this section, I will discuss cash flow statement that is the single most important element of survival. Creditors examine the cash flow statement carefully because they are concerned about being paid. A good starting point of the analysis of the cash flow statement is to find net cash provided by operating activities. In case of SIBL, net cash flow from operating activities show an increasing trend except in the year 2012 when it dramatically went down to negative figure. The following figure shows the trend of net cash flow from operating profits over the past five years:

Stockholders Equity Statement Analysis

Several ratios use stockholders equity related amounts to evaluate a companys profitability and long-term solvency. The following three ratios are discussed and illustrated in this regard: Rate of Return on Common Stock Equity: A widely used ratio that measures profitability from the common stockholders view point is rate of return on common stock equity. This ratio shows how many dollar of net income were earned for each dollar invested by the owners of the bank. The following figure shows the trend of rate of return on common stock equity of the bank over the past five year:

The figure represented above shows that the trend is not very much fluctuating. It has been stable over past five years. In 2012, the return was 22.74% compared to the previous years 20.89%. Capital Adequacy Ratio: Capital adequacy focuses on the total position of ba nks capital and protects the depositors from the potential shocks of losses that the bank might incur. Banks in Bangladesh have to maintain a minimum Capital Adequacy Ratio (CAR) of not less than 9.00 percent of risk-weighted assets. The figure,

represented on the next page, shows the capital adequacy ratio of the bank over the last five years:

2013 2012 2011 2010 2009 2008 2007 2006 2005 9% 2010 2009 2008 11% 2011 2012 11% 11% 9%

The above figure shows that SOCIAL ISLAMI BANK LTD. is not well capitalized by local standards with a total CAR of 9.43% in 2012. There was a sharp decline in the rate from the year 2011 when CAR was 11 .00%. The bank is not in a position to absorb major financial risks (like credit risk, market risk, foreign exchange risk, interest rate risk etc.). Debt Equity Ratio= Year Debt equity ratio
Long term debts Shareholders fund

2001 9.31%

2012 6.05%

Debt equity ratio is on lower trend. So there is still scope for arranging long-term loans for further expansion of the business provided profitable activities can be carried on. 3. Though Cash & Balance with other bank is increased by 27% & 47% respectively, borrowing from bank, financial institution also increased by 195%. That means banks liquidity was not sufficient to meet the obligations.

Capital Adequacy Ratio:

It is a measure of a banks capital. This ratio is used to pro tect depositors and promote the stability and efficiency of financial systems around the world. Capital adequacy ratio is the ratio which determines the banks capacity to meet the time liabilities and

other risks such as credit risk, operational risk, etc. it is also known as Capital to Risk Weighted Assets Ratio (CRAR). Capital adequacy Ratio=
Tier 1 capital Tier 2 capital 100 Risk weighted asset

TIER 1 CAPITAL - 1. Equity Capital. 2. Disclosed Reserves.

TIER 2 CAPITALS - 1. Undisclosed Reserves. 2. General Loss reserves. 3. Subordinate Term Debts.

Year 2008 2009 2010 2011 2012

Total Capital 3237.87 4711.47 6519.14 9124.62 19190.79

Risk Weighted Asset 32055.71 35940.79 48562.76 105986.2 156148.6

Car 10.10% 13.11% 13.42% 8.61% 12.29%

2013 2012 2011 2010 2009 2008 2007 2006 2005 10.10% 2010 2009 2008 13.11% 2012 2011 13.42% Car Year 8.61% 12.29%

Here, we view Capital Adequacy ratio of SIBL was in a good position in 2012 comparing with 2011. That means SIBL has good capacity to meet the time liabilities and other risks.

Loan deposit Ratio:

For banks, it is how much they have coming in (deposits) vs. how much they have going out (loans). The more money the bank has loaned out generates more interest income provided the loans are to secure borrowers. Deposits are obligations (debts) the bank has to the depositors. So, a healthy bank has lots of secure loans generating lots of income (interest) to cover depositors accounts. Loan deposit ratio= Year 2008 2009 2010 2011 2012

Loan 100 Deposit

Loan & advance 32709.68 36475.74 50665.07 65129.29 92003.56 Deposit 40350.87 47961.22 60187.89 76834.13 102471.83 Advance deposit ratio 81.06% 76.05% 84.18% 84.77% 89.78%

Dividend Yield Ratio

This ratio is important for those investors who are interested in the dividend income. As the shareholder purchases the shares in the open market, his yield (rate of return) is not equal to the dividend declared by the company. Dividend yield ratio= Year 2008 2009 2010 2011 2012
Dividend per equity share 100 Market Pr ice

Dividend per equity share 5 5.5 5.2 5.5 9.5

Market Price 76.05 149.4 101.43 64.63 191.6

Dividend yield ratio 6.57% 3.68% 5.13% 8.51% 4.96%

2013 2012 2011 2010 2009 2008 2007 2006 2005 6.57% 2010 2009 2008 3.68% 2012 2011 5.13% Dividend yield ratio Year 8.51% 4.96%

Here we view a fluctuation in the dividend yield ratio. It was 6.57%, 3.68%, 5.13%, 8.51% and 4.%% lathe year of 2008,2009,2010,2011 and 2012. Payout Ratio: It is important to some investors that the payout be sufficiently high to provide a good yield on the stock of SOCIAL ISLAMI BANK LTD. Limited. The figure of the next page shows the trend of the payout ratio of the bank over the past five years:

Pay out ratio 50.00% 45.00% 40.00% 35.00% 30.00% 25.00% 20.00% 15.00% 10.00% 5.00% 0.00% 2007



28.30% 22.22% 16.39%

Pay out ratio







The above figure shows that payout ratio declined in 2010 to 22.22% from 45.45% in 2009 while in 2008 it was as low as 16.39%. A payout ratio of 22.22% means that the bank paid out 22.22% of the EPS in the form of dividend. So SOCIAL ISLAMI BANK LTD. is retaining and reinvesting 77.78% of the earnings for future growth.

Non interest cost to total Interest income


I have some points to focus which will help the bank to improve the efficiency as well as the quality of work. The points are as follows: As SIBL is a service providing organization, it should introduce new and dynamic services to serve the people and capture the target market. Management should set proper planning for its operations of each and every work for the whole bank as well as all branches of SIBL. It must avoid the duplication of work through better communication. It also tries to avoid duplication in any case through accuracy and efficiency. Top management must ensure the proper implication of IT. Still the bank is not fully computerized. Manual registers are used in some cases. So immediately management should take proper step. SIBL pays very less interest than other banks. So, if they found higher interest rate offering by other private banks of Bangladesh then they will lose customers. However, the income of the business is still heavily dependent upon its share on the retail market. The retail sector is very price sensitive.

I have to try my best to reach a firm and concrete a conclusion very confident way. I believe that my realization will be in harmony with most of the banking thinkers. Now a day banking sector is more competitive. To achieve a proper reward about performance, it is essential to satisfy its customer by providing them different valuable and dynamic services. Because a satisfied customer will talk to others about the services those he/she is very justifiable enjoying and a satisfied customers statement is more effective than a thousand of commercial advertisement. People depend on the people is the mode of human civilization. Therefore, the importance to satisfy customer is increasing day by day in the private commercial sector especially in the private banks. As all the activities those are required to provide valuable services to its customers to make them satisfy, are related with the fund management system, SIBL is so much careful about its fund management system. SIBL always gives its highest attention in monitoring and managing the bank fund, which is consists of fund, capital, reserve, deposit, loan and advance. At present SIBL is successful in effectively and efficiently managing these vital issues. In spite of that, in order to keep its success continue and reach at the pinnacle of success it, its managers, board of directors and employee must have the comprehensive and clear idea about the reserve, fund, loan, capital, deposit and liquidity regarding the smooth control of bank and continue its vital operation toward countrys economic development.
