Corp Bank Q2 income up 21%, net flat

Mangalore-based public sector lender reported a 21 per cent growth in interest income at Rs 3,744 crore for the quarter ended September 30, 2012, up from Rs 3,090 crore during the same period last year.

However, its net profit remained almost flat at Rs 405 crore, compared to Rs 401 crore on a year-on-year (y-o-y) basis.

The bank’s negligible growth in net profit, despite growth in interest income, was mainly due to 27.8 per cent increase in interest paid on deposits, 16 per cent decline in non-interest income and  decline in yield on investments on y-o-y basis, though salaries declined 13 per cent.

Non-interest income in non-core areas fell 55 per cent, from Rs 190 crore in the second quarter of last year to Rs 86 crore for the quarter ended September 30, 2012.

Total restructured assets were Rs 8,866.64 crore as on September 30, 2012; the
