The United Bank for Africa Ghana Limited, a subsidiary of UBA Plc, has announced a profit after tax of $12.72 million (GH˘22.4 million) for 2011, from $5.20 million (GH˘9.2 million) in 2010.
The Nigerian Punch news publication April 4, 2012 cites a statement released by the Bank April 3 saying its profit for the year ended 2011 showed an increase of 143%, on the back of improved risk analysis and prudent operational costs.
“Specifically, UBA Ghana with 26 fully-networked branches and 40 Visa-enabled ATMs spread across Accra, Tema, Kumasi, Takoradi and Aflao, recorded a profit before tax of GH˘30.2 million ($17.653 million) in 2011 against GH˘13.9 million ($7.86 million) in 2010, representing an increase of 143% over the previous year,” the publication quoted the text of the statement.
The Bank’s deposit volume for the period increased to GH˘404.6 million ($228.8 million) from GH˘311.2 million ($176 million) in 2010.
It added that the bank’s improved risk analysis and prudent measures contributed in reducing its non-performing loans from 19% in 2010 to 7.91% in 2011.
