DnB Bank 3Q Net Profit Boosted by Volume Growth, Repricing
By Ian Walker
DnB Bank ASA on Thursday reported a 10% rise in third-quarter net profit which was boosted by profitable volume growth and repricing effects, and backed its target for a return on equity above 12%.
Norway's largest lender made a net profit of 7.58 billion Norwegian krone ($714.1 million), compared with NOK6.88 billion a year earlier.
Net interest income rose to NOK12.25 billion from NOK9.77 billion.
DnB's common equity Tier 1 capital ratio--a measure of a bank's financial strength--fell to 18.1% from 19.2% at Sept. 30, 2021 but is up from 18.0% in the second quarter.
