Recent performance

Like the rest of the banking sector, the last few years have been sublime for JSBL. Courtesy of still being relatively young, JS Bank has outpaced the top line and bottom line growth of most of the industry participants in the past half decade. Much of that can also be associated with the ‘JS’ brand name backing this decade-old bank.

In the past five years, JS Bank’s earned interest (mark-up/ return) has grown at a compound annual growth rate of 36 percent – from Rs3.3 billion in CY10 to Rs15.3 billion in the recently concluded CY15. Despite steep growth, JSBL makes only a tiny fraction of the overall industry. For reference, the total interest earned by the country’s banking sector was Rs982 billion in CY15.[4] Rs15.3 billion in –  the recently concluded

In the past year that saw considerable monetary policy easing – declining discount rates and banking spreads – JSBL produced upbeat results. Earned interest grew 38 percent year-on-year for the bank compared to an industry-wide growth of less than seven percent.

Over the past few years, the growth in interest earned has outpaced that in interest expensed. This has been true for the industry as a whole. For JSBL, the five-year CAGR in interest expensed clocked in at 34 percent – two percentage points lower than the earned interest. In CY15, the bank paid out Rs9.7 billion in interest to customers – 34.2 percent more than a year before. In the same period, the industry expensed out Rs486 billion in interest payouts.

Net mark-up or interest income has rallied phenomenally for JSBL – five fold since CY10 – at a CAGR of 40 percent. In CY15, the metric grew 45 percent year-on-year to Rs5.6 billion.[5] CAGR of 40 percent – JSBL The industry, in comparison, experienced a 20 percent rise in interest income in the period as per SBP’s data.

Share price and outlook

SBL stock was much more volatile compared to the benchmark index last year, but both ended up flattish. The banking industry heavyweights (like HBL, MCB and UBL) and consequently the overall sector finished deep in the red last year. JSBL currently trades at around Rs7 a share – rallying from under-Rs2 at the beginning of 2012. The stock outperformed the market in 2012 and 2014.

Despite declining banking spreads, profitability has been strong for banks in Pakistan. Interest income has gone up steadily and PIB investments have soared rapidly. Such a trend in expected to continue for the banking sector with the sector’s bottom-line having more room to grow.[6] The stock –  Outperformed. JSBL
