Chairman's Review
Dear Valued Shareholders,

I am delighted to welcome you all to the 25th Annual


General Meeting (AGM) of your Company, IDLC
Finance Limited. IDLC has successfully completed 24
years of uninterrupted operations and I thank you for
reposing so much trust and confidence in the Board
and Management Team within this highly competitive
financial services industry.

As the leasing industry is facing tremendous competi-


tion and challenges we believe that continued
diversification and increasing the fee based activities
are the only ways to survive, grow, be sustainable and
become the best performing and most innovative
financial solutions provider in the country while
maintaining high quality growth of shareholders’
wealth. Taking this into consideration, IDLC, in 2009,
continued to concentrate more on diversified
investments. Accordingly, the Company’s diversified
operations, specially the capital market operation,
posted a substantial growth during the year under
review.

The Bangladesh capital market, is in no way mature,


and has a lot of potential to develop and grow. In
order to realize such potential, we shall coordinate
our forces and hope that our merchant banking and
securities brokerage operation will continue to
contribute substantially to our profitability and
growth in the forthcoming years.

Review of Business
Environment
GLOBAL ECONOMY

The acute phase of financial crisis has passed and a


global economic recovery is under way. The recovery is
off to a stronger start than anticipated earlier but is
proceeding at different speeds in the various regions.
As per International Monetary Fund’s (IMF) statistics
World output grew by -0.8% in 2009 compared to 3.0%
in 2008. During 2009 advanced economies saw a
growth of -3.2% compared to 0.5% in 2008 while
Emerging and developing economies and developing
Asia saw a growth of 2.1% and 6.5%, respectively,
compared to 6.1% and 7.9% growth in 2008. Following
the biggest global downturn in recent history,
economic growth solidified and broadened to
advanced economies in the second half of 2009.
Confidence rebounded strongly on both the financial
and real fronts as extraordinary policy support
forestalled another great depression. Monetary and
Fiscal policies have provided major stimulus in
response to the deep downturn. Meanwhile, public
support of the financial sector has been crucial in
breaking the negative feedback loop between the
financial and real sectors.

As projected by IMF, output in the advanced econo-


mies is now expected to expand by 2 percent in 2010,
following a sharp decline in output in 2009. The
recovery in advanced economies is still expected to be
weak by historical standards, with real output
remaining below its pre-crisis level until late 2011.

the reports of the other auditors.

financial statements, drawn up on the consideration of the separate audit reports of the subsidiary as at 31 Decem-
ber 2009, prepared in accordance with Bangladesh Accounting Standards (BAS) and Bangladesh Financial Report-

od to write down the cost of intangible assets to their residual values over their estimated useful
