On the announcements, Bank AlJazira announced its interim financial results for the period ending March 31 with net profit amounting to SR300.4 million compared to SR279.3 million in the previous quarter.

In an official statement on Tadawul, the bank attributed the increase in the net income to a decrease in total operating expenses by 6 percent. 

“The decrease in total operating expenses is mainly due a decrease in net impairment charge for financing and other financial assets, other general and administrative expenses, salaries and employee-related expenses and other operating expenses against an increase in depreciation and amortization expenses,” the statement said.

Conversely, there has been a slight decrease of 0.2 percent in total operating income, primarily attributed to a reduction in net financing and investment gains. Additionally, the rise in net income was partially tempered by increased zakat charges over the period.
