MESSAGE FROM THE
CHAIRMAN

"LankaBangla has been developing its strategies for years based on diversification in markets with high growth potential, a customer-centric business model and technology as key elements in order to face the transformation process being experienced in its business segments. Sustaining earnings amidst challenging times and taking result oriented initiatives have helped us to elevate the company performance to the next level."

Dear Stakeholders,

I begin my message with a sense of gratitude and pride about LankaBangla Finance Limited that has grown stronger over the course of time. It is indeed a proud moment for me to present to you the audited financial statements of LankaBangla Finance Limited for the year 2017. On behalf of the Board of Directors and everyone from LankaBangla, I welcome you all to the 21st Annual General Meeting.

Bangladesh economy continued to show a solid performance in 2017. One of the major achievements of the economy has been 7.28% economic growth in FY 2016-17 breaking the six percent cycle that continued for a decade. Major boost of growth has come from the industrial sector followed by the services sector. Though interest rate remained considerably low during most part of the year, in the later part of 2017 interest rates were on an upward trajectory led by scarcity of liquidity in the market. Bangladesh Bank initially continued its accommodative monetary stance for H1FY18, but eventually has adopted a somewhat contractionary monetary policy for H2FY18.

You will be happy to know that LankaBangla Finance Limited reported strong results for the year 2017 with consolidated profit after tax of BDT 1,926 million i.e. BDT 5.97 per share. The Company reported ROA of 2.58% and ROE of 25.66%. Net profit after tax increased 142% compared to the previous year. The standalone net profit after tax increased by 26.19% from the prior year and amounted to BDT 1,353 million. Consolidated total asset has reached to BDT 85,443 million at the end of 2017 from BDT 64,044 million at the end of 2016 showing 33.41% growth yearon-year basis. Our consolidated investment portfolio grew 27.95% and stood at BDT 72,014 million at the end of the year.

In addition to keeping a clear focus on customers and clients, our growth strategy includes growing within a clear risk framework so that we can maintain our balanced, stable and financially strong platform. It means we proactively and thoroughly assess risk and reward so that we can provide sustainable returns to our shareholders over time. During 2017 loans, leases, and advances increased by 29.86%; whereas NPL declined to 2.85% from 3.22% in 2016, which demonstrates our focus on growing the right way.

Capital Adequacy Ratio (CAR) stood at 11.95% on consolidated basis against regulatory requirement of minimum 10.00%. At the beginning of 2018 we have issued Rights share which will have a positive impact on the capital base of the Company. We have taken necessary measures to remain compliant, in line with the regulatory requirements, with regard to forecasted future growth.

To grow our business and to reach out to more customers and cater our services we have expanded our distribution network and opened five new branches in 2017. We will continue to widen our reach through extended branch network by launching five more branches in 2018 at major townships and industrial hubs of the country.

We strongly believe that our most important long-term competitive advantage is our people. Our commitment to attract and retain the most talented people in our industry and beyond is of vital importance to the company and the perennial foundation of our success. I am pleased to report that LankaBangla Finance Limited remains a highly attractive place to work. We work hard to make LankaBangla a place where our people can have long and successful careers. We have a history of investing in our people at every level, in number of training sessions and leadership development programs to our continuous work on talent mobility.

We understand that the success of our company is directly linked to the success of our communities. For us, corporate responsibility is a strategic imperative. We see corporate responsibility as an opportunity to work to advance societal needs. We have continued our support to underprivileged people of the community to ensure their health, shelter and education through LankaBangla Foundation. Through conscience corporate governance and effective business model we have contributed towards a sustainable society.

Taking into account our current capital structure and future business plan, the Board has recommended 7.50% cash dividend and 7.50% stock dividend for the year 2017. We realize that our dividend pay-out ratio is slightly low compared to previous years, but we will reap the benefit of ploughing back more resources in growing the business in the coming days.

ICT division is constantly working towards the development and implementation of new technologies to enable the organization to meet future market demand. The year 2017 was special year for the Company in the arena of technological advancement. Our operational activities were upgraded with integration of advanced IT based solutions namely payment collection through mobile banking, development of automated backup procedure for Mastercard, upgrading virtual environment for enhancing services and completed partial Disaster Recovery Infrastructure.

LankaBangla, through LankaBangla Foundation has extended its support for underprivileged people of the community. In 2017, we have extended support to unprivileged brilliant student to pursue their education, provided financial assistance for education for children of deceased ex-officio of LankaBangla, promoted creativity and cultural development of children through arranging art competition, distributed relief among poor flood victims at Kurigram district, distributed bicycle among female students of Birol Upazila, Dinajpur, organized tree planataion program for protecting environmental and ecological degradation, distributed blankets among the poor people to protect them from cold wave. Also LankaBangla and OCAS jointly distributed relief and arranged medical camp among flood victims of South Sunamganj, Sunamganj.

I take immense pride in informing you that in 2017 LankaBangla Finance Limited received SAFA Best Presented Annual Report 2016, ICAB Best Presented Annual Report Award 2016, ICAB Corporate Governance Award 2016, and ICMAB Best Corporate Award 2016. These awards and recognitions are testament to our continuous effort towards reaching excellence in terms of adoption of best practices and transparency. Our subsidiary company, LankaBangla Securities Limited, has secured 1st position in terms of turnover for 12 consecutive years in Dhaka Stock Exchange and for 13 consecutive years in Chittagong Stock Exchange depicting our consistent strong presence in Bangladesh Capital Market.

We duly acknowledge the contribution of our human resources who have delivered the results by working tirelessly to meet customers’ expectations. On behalf of the Board, as well as personally, I would like to thank them all for their dedication and commitment. I extend my profound gratitude to Bangladesh Bank, Bangladesh Securities and Exchange Commission, Dhaka Stock Exchange Limited, Chittagong Stock Exchange Limited, Registrar of Joint Stock Companies and Firms, National Board of Revenue and all other regulatory authorities for their valuable guidance, support and cooperation.

I am proud of the progress that we have made during the year 2017 and excited about the opportunity for even more progress in the year ahead. We anticipate new challenges in 2018 from political developments, tightened money supply and regulatory matters. Nevertheless, we firmly believe that the diverse challenge of tomorrow opens up new opportunities for further growth and progress. On behalf of the Board of Directors, I pledge that we will continue to add value for the stakeholders through formulation and execution of prudent business strategies and practices whilst ensuring that we contribute towards the achievement of national priorities.

I would like to thank all our shareholders and customers whose commitment is a sign of appreciation and trust. We will do everything within our capacity to ensure that LankaBangla Finance Limited remains an attractive investment and a reliable and future-oriented company that justifies your trust.
