UAE’s FGB posts 6% growth

Dubai / Bloomberg

First Gulf Bank (FGB) PJSC reported a better-than- expected six percent rise in full-year profit as the United Arab Emirates’ third-biggest bank was helped by non-operating income. Net income advanced to 6.01 billion dirhams ($1.64 billion) from 5.66 billion a year earlier, the Abu Dhabi-based lender said in an e-mailed statement on Sunday. The mean estimate of nine analysts was for a profit of 5.74 billion dirhams, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.
