CEM REPORT, FINANCE | Jaiz Bank has set its revenue target for the first quarter of 2023.

In its projection forecast for Q1 2023, the non-interest bank set N9.780 billion as gross earnings for the period.

The bank also projected a pre-tax profit earning of N1.403 billion and a profit after tax of N1.263 billion for the stipulated period.

Similarly, the company’s total assets reached N325 billion in Q3 2022 compared to N279 billion in the same period of the previous year. 

Jaiz Bank’s financial report for Q3 2022 shows a 20% jump to N925 million, profit before tax was valued at N1.4 billion from N970 million, driven by massive growth in the advertising and marketing bonus and benefits and among others.  

The report shows that income from financing contracts was up from N3.5 billion to N5.7 billion, driven by income from Murabaha transactions and Murabaha profit–corporate in the face of increasing inflation.  

A further breakdown reveals that investment activities increase to reach N2.5 billion, from N2.3 billion recorded last year.

Consequently, the bank pulled in N504 million and N2 billion respectively from trading assets and Sukuk, which led to an increase in the gross income from financing transactions to N8 billion, from N5.9 billion.  

Fees and commission income for the period grew to N365 million in Q3 2022 from N218 million in Q3 2021.

This is as the bank recorded a spike in banking services and net income from its e-business for the period.

However, other operating income saw a low record of N2.9 million compared to N148 million during the period.   

Similarly, operating expenses were up to reach N1.96 billion from N1 billion the previous year.

Staff cost increased to N2.1 billion from N1.98 billion as a result of an increase in Salaries, Pension training, and seminar as well as other expenses.
