A Brief History

CB Bank Limited formerly known as Muslim Commercial Bank Limited is one of

the leading banks of Pakistan. The bank came into being on July 9, 1947 under the flag of Adamjee Group. It was established with a view to provide banking facilities to the business community, especially the Muslim community, of the Indian Subcontinent. After the partition, the bank moved its operations to Dhaka, East Pakistan, from where it commenced business on August 1948. In 1956, the

bank transferred its registered office to Karachi, West Pakistan. In 1974 the bank was nationalized and remained so till 1991. MCB became the first bank of Pakistan to be privatized (de-nationalized) in 1991. The bank was purchased by a consortium of local corporations led by the Nishat Group. At that time Nishat was one of the leading and most diversified business groups of the country with strong presence in most important business sectors including textile, cement and insurance. In 2005-06, the official name, i.e. Muslim Commercial Bank Limited was officially dropped in favor of MCB Bank Limited, as the bank was facing resistance due to the word Muslim specially from Western Countries to avail license. In 2008 the head office of MCB was shifted from Karachi to Lahore in a newly constructed building, namely MCB House located at Shara-e-Ghous-ul-Azam, commonly known as Jail Road. Shortly after this move the Nishat Group became the majority stake holder of the bank. In May 2008 Malaysian bank, Maybank and MCB signed an agreement, whereby Maybank acquired up to 20% of the ordinary shares in MCB from Nishat Group. The acquisition was in-line with Maybanks strategy, as Malaysias financial services leader in the region, to build its presence in key growth markets across the region. It also paves the way for MCB, one of Pakistans premier financial services groups, to engage Maybank as its exclusive foreign strategic partner. Maybank initially acquired from Nishat Group 94,241,527 ordinary shares of MCB, representing a 15% stake in the Bank, for a cash price of PKR470 per share. The total consideration paid was approximately US$686 million. The purchase price represented an 11.4% premium to MCBs closing share price of PKR 422 on May 2, 2008, and a premium of 12.9% to the average closing share price for MCB over the 30 trading days immediately preceding the date of this announcement. Based on MCBs December 31, 2007 audited book value, the purchase price represents an implied price to book value multiple of 5.13x, a price to 2007 earnings multiple of 18.0x and a price to 2008 earnings multiple of 15.2x. In July 2008 Maybank exercised its right to increase its stake to 20%.

The stake in MCB allows Maybank the right to appoint two Directors to represent its interest on the Board of MCB. One of these Directors was to be appointed immediately and the second Director will be appointed upon completion of the term of the existing Board, scheduled to be on March 27, 2009.

Return on average equity(ROE):

It measures a firm efficiency at generating profits from every unit of shareholder's equity. It shows how well a company uses investment funds to generate earning growth. ROE = Net income after tax / Average shareholders equity

High ROE yields no immediate benefit, since stock prices are most strongly determined by earning per share (EPS).


50% 45% 40% 35% 30% 25% 20% 15% 10% 5% 0% 2010 2009 2008 2007 2006 25% 27% 31% 38% 45%

From above bar chart, it reveals MCB ROE is decreasing every year from 2006 to 2010. In 2006, ROE was 45% while next year 2007, it decreased 7 % to year 2006. This sharp decrease was caused y increased shareholders equity, which was 40,844 million 36% more than shareholders equity of year 2007, which was Rs 55,120 million. As in ROE two major components / variables influence 1- Net income after tax 2- Average shareholders equity Increase in net income after tax (PAT) made ROE high if shareholders equity is constant or lesser increase than PAT and vice versa. From year 2007 to 2010, profit after tax was relatively constant, while shareholders equity rose consecutively. This imbalance increase caused the lower ROE, from year 2006 to year 2010.


Earning per share ratio:

It refers the earning returned on the initial investment amount. Investors , sometimes focuses on EPS of any company, if they intend to buy its stocks. EPS is one of parameter of profitability. EPS = Profit after tax/Shares outstanding


25.00 20.00 15.00 10.00 5.00 2010 2009 2008 2007 2006 22.60 22.42 22.25 22.09 17.67

MCBs EPS has maintained its growth every year, from year 2006 to year 2009, which has increased 77% in last five years. In year 2006, EPS was reported to Rs 12.91, which was increased 36.09% and 25.72% in 2006 and 2007 respectively. Next two years, 2008 and 2009, EPS was reported 22.25 and 22.42 respectively. In last two years no significant increase has been noted. No substantial growth has been reported in EPS, for the year 2010. Two major variables of EPS ratio are: Net income / Profit after tax (PAT) Shares outstanding Increase in PAT, while other things are relatively constant, EPS will increase and vice versa. In year 2006, PAT increased from Rs. 8,922 millions to Rs. 12, 142 millions, with the growth of 36.09%. Banks shares outstanding also increased from 4.255 millions to 5,463 millions shares.

Bank issued 15% bonus shares in the end of year 2006. This issuance increased shares outstanding from 5,463 million to 6,283 millions. Therefore, EPS for 2007 was reported Rs. 22.09 the growth of 25.72%. Banks PAT for year 2007 was reported Rs 15,266 millions, Rs 3,124 millions more than Rs. 12,142 millions of year 2006. No significant change was observed in the EPS of year 2008. PAT and shares outstanding remained relatively unchanged, because there was no bonus shares were issued in the end of year 2007.

Advances to Deposit ratio

This ratio indicates how much percentage of deposits which are the borrowing of the bank is lending as advances. Advances generate funds which are the prime source of any bank or financial institute income. It is very important parameter to measure the soundness of the bank. If lending rate is increased to any significant level, the borrowing will decline resulting in death of liquidity which is again inflationary. ADR = Gross advances / Gross deposits

Advances to Deposit Ratio

90% 80% 70% 60% 50% 40% 30% 20% 10% 0% 83% 73% 60% 79% 80%






MCB has maintained ADR in last five years. ADR declined nominally in 2006 from 82.03% to 80.34%. In year 2007, advances to deposits ratio further decreased and was reported 78.64. In year 2008, ADR showed positive change and reported 82.64%, the highest in last five years. In year 2009, it again observed decline of 9.27% and was reported 73.37%. Major decline in ADR was reported in year 2010, when ADR was reported 60%.

ADR has two main components: 1. 2. Advances Deposits

Increase in advances while deposits remain unchanged or change less than advances then ADR will increase and vice versa. Due to high M2 growth owing to an expansionary fiscal policy by State bank of Pakistan but during 2008 banks faced liquidity constraints due to high cash reserve requirement (CRR) and statutory liquidity requirement (SLR) along with extra


ordinary cash outflow from the system. This forced smaller banks to borrow at high rates and big banks were obligated to further increase their return on deposits to fetch fresh funds. MCB has the industry deposits share of 8.50% which is maintained for last five years. The dissection of the deposit mix depicts that MCB had a benefit of low cost deposits which reduced its interest expense.

MCB deposits in last five years are:
