Accordingly, Burgan’s Q1’19 financial results include only two months’ (Jan’19 & Feb’19) results of its subsidiaries instead of three months (as included in the prior periods). This change will enable Burgan to accelerate its financial closing process & the required procedures for earliest possible release of the Group’s financial statements to its stakeholders.

• Revenue of KD 50.3mn while maintaining healthy Net Interest Margin of 2.7%
 
• Operating Profit of KD 29.2mn with stable Cost-to-Income Ratio of 41.8%
 
• Net income of KD 19.2mn with low Cost of Credit of 0.7% 
 
• CET1 Ratio of 11.8% and CAR of 17.3%, indicating optimal capital levels 
 
Our Kuwait operations, which is the core engine of the Burgan Bank Group, continues to perform strongly as reflected in the below mentioned key business metrics:
 
• Q1’19 Net Interest Margin of 2.3% (vs Q1’18: 2.3%)

• Q1’19 NPL Ratio of 1.8% (vs Q1’18: 1.7%)
 
These results reflect the stability of the operating business model of Burgan Bank Group despite headwinds in certain markets in the region.
 
Mr. Majed Essa Al Ajeel, Chairman of Burgan Bank Group said: “the Bank’s business model continues to prove its resilience, while maintaining good progress on key initiatives aimed at mitigating risk, improving operating competences and capitalization levels.”
 
'On behalf of the board, I take this opportunity to thank our customers and shareholders for the trust they have in our capabilities and our regulator, the Central Bank of Kuwait, for their support.  I would also like to thank our executive management team for their leadership and the excellent execution of the corporate strategy, and our staff for their continued support and commitment.' concluded Al Ajeel.
