PT Bank Maybank Indonesia Tbk (“Maybank Indonesia or the Bank”) today reported that its net profit after tax and minority interest (PATAMI) reached Rp1.14 trillion for the financial year ended 31 December 2015, a sharp increase of 60.9% from the previous corresponding year. The Bank’s profit before tax also surged 59% from Rp973 billion in December 2014 to Rp1.54 trillion in December 2015. The solid performance was achieved on the back of better Net Interest Margin, strong growth of the Bank’s fee based income, outstanding achievement in Sharia Banking, and disciplined cost management efforts.
Net Interest Income rose 9.4% to Rp6.49 trillion as of 31 December 2015 from Rp5.93 trillion in the previous corresponding year as the Bank’s Net Interest Margin (NIM) improved to 4.84% from 4.76%. Increase in Net Interest Income (NII) was achieved through the Bank’s discipline in loan pricing and active funding management.
The Bank reported 40.8% increase in fee based income to Rp2.73 trillion in December 2015 from Rp1.94 trillion in December 2014. The significant increase in fee based income was mainly driven by the Bank’s bancassurance fees, services as arranger and advisory to its corporate clients, foreign exchange transactions, loan administration, insurance, and other services provided by the Bank.
The Bank's General and Administrative expenses increased by only 6.4%. This was mainly attributed to the continued implementation of the Bank's Strategic Cost Management Program (SCMP) that had been adopted and intensified across the Bank as an effort to improve efficiency and productivity. The Bank’s rigorous cost management efforts during the year has resulted improvement in cost-to-income ratio (CIR) which decreased to 58.2% from 63.4% for the full year 2015.

The Bank’s continuous upgrade on its cash management system, strong financial supply chain solutions, and its (internet based) mobile banking facility Maybank M2U have also greatly contributed to the improved liquidity position.

The Bank’s consolidated NPL level was at 3.67% (gross) and 2.42% (net) as of December 2015 compared to 2.23% (NPL gross) and 1.48% (NPL net) in the previous year.
