Expressing his happiness on the Q2 FY23 result of the Bank, Shri Mahabaleshwara M.S., Managing Director & CEO of the Bank, said, “Our all-time high Q2FY23 result represents the tipping point of the Bank’s reinvigorated trajectory. Our disciplined execution and aggressive digitalisation, combined with our commitment to superior customer experience, is fortifying Karnataka Bank’s reputation for delivering sustained profitable growth.  The milestone of reaching Rs 411.47 crore of net profit earned during the quarter is the highest-ever quarterly profit earned by the Bank. Similarly, Rs 525.52 crores of half-yearly net profit is also a new high. In just six months of the current year, we have already surpassed the last year’s total annual net profit of Rs 507.99 crores. The significant jump in net profit is mainly because of improved earnings, improved asset quality, healthy growth of advances, cost containment, and efficiency enhancement, among others. It is also noteworthy that our core fundamentals across all key performance parameters, such as NIM, PCR, ROI, ROA, and CASA Ratio, among others, have improved materially, signifying the arrival of a ‘New KBL’ as envisaged in our Transformation Journey ‘KBL-VIKAAS’. I am sure that as we cross our 100th year next year, the Bank will continue to create new benchmarks of performance with its ever-growing customer base, user-friendly digital products and committed employees”.
