(MENAFN Press) Finance House PJSC (FH), has kicked-off 2014 on an upbeat note by registering a consolidated net profit of AED 35.51 million for the first quarter of 2014, which is nearly 38% higher than the net profit of AED 25.81 million earned during the first quarter of the previous year.

Net Interest Income earned during Q1 2014 was lower than Q1 2013 due to one-off adjustments in the previous year, primarily on account of recoveries made under rescheduled commercial loans.

Net Loans & Advances including Islamic financing & investing assets grew by a steady 8.6% YOY to reach AED 1.65 billion as of 31 March 2014, compared to AED 1.52 billion at the same time last year.

Commenting on Q1 2014 results, Mohammed Abdulla Alqubaisi, Chairman of Finance House, said: "The excellent results achieved in Q1 are a continuing reflection of a truly resilient business model that has stood the test of time. Our three main business areas, viz. Commercial Finance, Retail Finance & Investments complement each other and are seamlessly integrated to deliver profitable business growth despite changing economic conditions."

Shareholders' Equity as at 31 March 2014 stood at a robust AED 690.3 million compared to AED 641.5 million as of 31 March 2013. This is after setting aside for distribution, a cash dividend of 25% in March 2014, amounting to AED 75.63 million for the year ended 31 December 2013.

Liquid Assets to Total Assets as of 31 March 2014 was circa 36%, reflecting the Company's conscious approach to maintain abundant liquidity at all times. Capital Adequacy as of 31 March 2014 was a robust 24.8%, with ample room for accelerated loan/ asset growth in the foreseeable future.

Earlier this year, FH secured investment grade corporate credit rating of "BBB-"(Long Term) and "A3" (Short Term), both with a "Stable" outlook from Capital Intelligence (CI), an internationally reputed credit rating agency.

"We remain confident that our strategy of continuously seeking and addressing profitable niche segments will enable us to continue generating healthy returns to our shareholders on a sustained basis", concluded Alqubaisi.
