Private sector lender Karnataka Bank reported a fall in its net profit by 46% to Rs 1,060.8 million in the first quarter ended June 2021 (Q1FY22), mainly on account of decreased treasury income.

Commenting on the Q1 results of the Bank, Mahabaleshwara M. S., Managing Director & CEO of the Bank, said, "The reduction in net profit on year on year basis is mainly on account of decline in treasury gains, which is dependent on the yield movements. Compared to the sequential previous quarter (Q4 of FY21) the advances have shown marginal increase and is expected to consolidate further during the second quarter of the current year. Hence, the core business is expected to do well going forward, besides further improving the asset quality.

The bank's gross non-performing assets (NPAs) rose to 4.82% in June 2021 from 4.64% a year-ago. Sequentially, GNPAs fell from 4.91% in March 2021. Its provisions fell to Rs 3,680.8 million in Q1FY22 from Rs 5,090.7 million in Q1FY21. The provisions rose marginally at Rs 3,418.3 million in Q4FY21.
