On Growth: Compared to the same period last year, revenue increased by 17% to KES 20.9 billion which is the highest in over a decade, driven by strong organic growth as well as strategic investments in new growth areas.
Customer assets increased by 19% to KES 262 billion, with total assets increasing by 12% to KES 445 billion, while customer deposits grew by 7% to KES 282 billion.
This has supported a strong growth in Profit after Tax of 13% and pre-provision Profit of 22% compared to the same period last year and demonstrates the continued resilience of our business and customers.
On Transformation: The bank further improved its efficiency ratio (Cost to Income Ratio) to 42%, demonstrating the ongoing payoffs from previous transformational investments.
Furthermore, we have consistently re-invested the capacity generated by increased efficiencies to support our growth strategy.
Our transformation is focused on the customer, ensuring that their interactions with our channels are seamless.
This has resulted in a significant adoption of our alternative channels, with more than 90% of all transactions now taking place outside the branch.
The Board has recommended an interim dividend of KES0.2 per share in line with our strategy of delivering returns to our shareholders.


The bank further improved its efficiency ratio (Cost to Income Ratio) to 42% is noteworthy
1.69% worth of Dividend will juice Investors

In the first half of 2021, we delivered a strong performance largely driven by growth in interest income particularly in the small and medium enterprises segment as we accelerated our efforts in supporting businesses to recover from the effects of the pandemic.
The performance was also supported by a significant reduction in impairments related to improving macro economic variables.
The outcomes of the first half of 2021 are a validation that our Growth, Transformation and Returns strategy is working and delivering value for our stakeholders.
On Growth: Revenue increased by 6% to KES17.8 billion and customer assets increased by 8% to KES219 billion with total assets at KES398 billion.
On Transformation: The efficiency efforts paid off with operating expenses reducing by 3% resulting into a cost to income ratio of 45%.
On Returns: Return on equity increased to 22%. This was supported by the strong growth in profits, improved efficiency, and well managed capital.
The evolving impact of the pandemic required us to re-visit our strategic priorities, we took decisive actions towards capital and liquidity preservation, supporting our customers through various interventions such as loan moratoriums and restructures, fee waivers for digital transactions, capacity building for SMEs among other Force for Good initiatives.
These decisions are paying off, our customer operations are resilient as we have seen with credit book quality and our franchise is strong
Our business remains very well positioned to help our clients manage through the uncertain times with the improved capital and liquidity levels well placed to help us capture opportunities for growth.
With the improved efficiency levels, the bank will continue re investing in digital transformation in order to improve customer experience.
We would like to thank our customers, our staff and all stakeholders for their support as we continue to navigate the COVID 19 pandemic, whose impact is still unfolding and may remain with us for a long time.
The Board has not recommended an interim dividend.

Customers have resumed payments on 94% of all restructured loans as of June, we had restructured a total of Ksh.62 billion Jeremy Awori , CEO @AbsaKenya @MaudhuiHouse

Company Commentary

Repayment holiday extended to 40+% of total loan accounts

abridged financial statements @AbsaKenya for FY 2020: @MwangoCapital

Net interest income up 2%
Loan loss provisions are up by more than 100%
Normalized Profit After Tax down 23%
Exceptional items [income statement] went up 109%
No dividend

During the period , Impairment costs went up by 115% KES9bn from 4.2Bn in 2019 @AbsaKenya @MaudhuiHouse


The Dividend Miss will disappoint.
Double Digit PE is considerably higher than Peers but I surmise they have been very aggressive on the write down side where they will probably have a cushion this Year unlike their Peers

.@Absabank has posted a Ksh 1.2 Billion Normalized Profit after Tax (PAT) for the half year period ended June 30th 2020. @MaudhuiHouse
ABSA Bank Kenya Plc (NSE: ABSA) announced an 84.8% y/y decline in Profit after Tax (PAT) to KES 0.6Bn.
The performance was primarily attributed to a 228.1% y/y (282.7% q/q) rise in Loan loss provision (LLP) to KES 5.4Bn
The gross non performing loans (NPLs) rose 8.4% y/y (-1.9% q/q) to KES 17.0Bn
a big chunk of the provisioning being undertaken on the performing book, on the back of the economic outlook.
The bank has restructured KES 57.0Bn worth of loans, representing 28.2% of the loan book.
56.0% of the KES 17.0Bn NPL book was attributed to the corporate space, primarily originating from Manufacturing (KES 5.8Bn), Real Estate & Construction (KES 1.5Bn) and Trade (KES 1.4Bn).

Pre provision profit is Shs 16.5 billion 14% growth from 2018.
Normalised Return on Equity (ROE) is 18.4% an improvement from 16.8% in 2018 while normalized cost to
income ratio is 51%

The implementation of the interest rate cap compressed our margins and resulted in a decline in our revenues. Currently, our strategy is to close the income gap by increasing sales volumes in the upper segments, increasing our product penetration in our current client base and increasing our focus on transactional banking deposits, Barclays Kenya MD, Jeremy Awori, said.
To manage costs, we are making sustainable investments in a number of running initiatives designed to create sustainable efficiencies. These initiatives include the automation of our processing centers, investments in alternate channels and the implementation of branch rationalisation programmes, said Awori.

Additionally we have set up an investment Banking Arm


Clearly Barclays is now positioning for Growth and that is evidenced in a 19.987% expansion in Loans and Advances to Customers.
However the 11.636% improvement in Profit before Tax was achieve off the back of a non recurrent exceptional Item which cost 0.788259b in 2013.

FY Dividend Pay Out 0.70 versus 1.00 -30.00%

Barclays Bank Kenya Managing Director Jeremy Awori said Whereas total income rose by 2% to reach 27.9b, operating costs increased by 9% loan impairment charges by 747% and a one off exceptional Restructuring cost of 788m was incurred leading a a 14% decline in profit before Tax compared to the previous Year.

Going Forward we see great opportunities for our Business.


These Results were a Known Known. I expect the One Africa Strategy to pay off via a Network Effect and think its likely Jeremy will adopt a more offensive Stance going forward.

Company Commentary

Underlying Profits excluding One Offs up 11%
Loan Loss Provision 0.5b versus 0.7b last time
Adan Mohamed focus on building a solid and resilient Business


The Headline PAT Decline of 23.8355888% is surely going to catch the Eye. However, look lower down and You will note that They booked an Extraordinary Gain the Previous FY and if You strip that out You get a Positive Number. Barclays Bank have been playing Defence and this is evidenced in the Staff Costs which fell 12.5177% Year on Year. The PE is now 7.798 and the Yield [Including the Interim] is 12.096% which is high and handsome.

Swot Analysis 6 Months to June 2011 versus 6 Months to June 2010
Profit Before Tax 5.345672b versus 4.749438 +13%
EPS 0.67 versus 0.68 -1.47%
Operating Expenses declined by a Billion
Half Year Dividend of 20 cents a share worth 1.29% of Yield.


Last FY Barclays bagged a windfall Gain from the Sale of its Custody Business. Through 2010 the Growth Trajectory [stripping out the Custody Gain] was just shy of 20%. PBT is now running at 13% and EPS at -1.47%. Clearly, the Turbulence seen in the Bond and Foreign Exchange Markets, have exacted a Price on the core underlying Organic Growth Rate. I see Barclays as having had to play Defence this Year and in that context the Results are a Defence Play. At a PE of 10.764 It looks fairly priced and the Interim Dividend is a well timed Sweetener.
