  1. Balance balance && Harmony Harmony While our planet Earth continues to move at the same speed, day after day, year after year; our lives move ever faster. The changing pace of technology, of life, of progress and of our professions affords us increasingly little time to reflect on the important aspects of life - one of which is balance. If you choose to look, there is balance in everything - in nature and nurture, in process and progress. The word "Meezan" means balance and the central element of our logo is also a balanced scale. In fact, balance and moderation in all aspects of life is one of the key teachings of Islam as well. This year, our annual report focuses on the many forms of balance that we see in our world.

  6. Quaid ’S Concept of Islamic Banking“ I shall watch with keenness the work of your Research Organization in evolving banking practices compatible with Islamic ideas of social and economic life. The economic system of the West has created almost insoluble problems for humanity and to many of us it appears that only a miracle can save it from disaster that is now facing the world. It has failed to do justice between man and man to eradicate friction from the international field. On the contrary, it was largely responsible for the two world wars in the last half century. The Western world, in spite of its advantages of mechanization and industrial efficiency is today in a worse mess than ever before in history. The adoption of Western economic theory and practice will not help us in achieving our goal of creating a happy and contended people. We must work our destiny in our own way and present to the world an economic system based on true Islamic concept of equality of manhood and social justice. We will thereby be fulfilling our mission as Muslims and giving to humanity the message of peace which alone can save it and secure the welfare, happiness and prosperity of mankind. " Quaid-e-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah Founder of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan On the occasion of the Opening Ceremony of The State Bank of Pakistan on July 1, 1948.
  7. Balancing Traditional Banking and Technology More often than not , banking is about providing solutions to customers that suit their diverse needs. In today's technology-driven world, there are many customers who prefer modern ways to bank, opting for internet banking and smartphone applications over conventional channels. In their fast-paced lives, writing checks to transfer funds or visiting branches to pay bills is not efficient. For them, Meezan Bank provides an extremely comprehensive Internet Banking service, a phone banking service as well as a very popular and easy-to-use smartphone application. However, there are also a large number of customers who feel more comfortable banking in a more traditional manner, with a relationship manager and a check book. For these customers and for those who are not quite comfortable with internet or smartphone banking, we continue to invest in our vast branch network, now comprising of over 600 branches nationwide. This balance of traditional banking and technology allows us to ensure that our growing customer base is served and their varying needs are catered to - helping us carve our place as Pakistan’s Premier Islamic Bank.
  8. profit & Responsibility - A Delicate Balance As an Islamic Bank, Meezan Bank carries a significant responsibility: to fulfill all the expectations that our customers have, especially with regard to their faith and our compliance with Shariah. At the same time, customers also have a reasonable expectation from the bank to operate profitably, giving them good returns on their investments. To maintain this balance of profit and responsibility, we not only have incredibly talented teams of banking professionals but also a peerless Shariah Board that oversees all the operations of the Bank from a Shariah perspective. With this winning combination, we are able to achieve success on both sides of the balance - turn over an excellent profit, year after year, without compromising on our responsibilities as a bank that is 100% Shariah-compliant. Determining and maintaining this balance between profit and responsibility - and managing to excel in both areas - is a major factor in our success as Pakistan’s Premier Islamic Bank.
  9. Striking the Ideal Work Life Balance In today It's everyday race to win against all competition and in continuously pushing ourselves to our limits, it is all too easy to forget that one of the most important balances in life is that between one's personal and professional life. As the stereotype goes, this applies more to the banking industry than most others. At Meezan Bank, we strive to ensure that our teams are able to achieve this important work-life balance - be it through facilities and perks such as a swimming pool and a fully featured gymnasium at our Head Office as well as farmhouses and beach huts at convenient locations, or by ensuring that people adhere to their working hours and regularly take dedicated time off for their families and loved ones. We understand and appreciate that in order to be properly motivated and efficient, Meezan Bankers need to have time for themselves. To this end, the bank provides the teams with other facilities such as access to discounts and privileges with various brand partners, ensuring that they have ample opportunities to make the most of life. This strategy, in place since the inception of the Bank, has resulted in a healthy team that is dedicated to their work and their customers and has been a key element in ensuring our success as Pakistan’s Premier Islamic Bank.
  10. The Perfect Balance of Relationships A bank caters to all types of customers - from individuals to entrepreneurs, from small businesses to large corporations. It is, however, the bank’s responsibility to ensure that all relationships are given equal importance. In the real world, with variances in business and transactions, it is quite possible that one relationship may be more profitable for the bank than another. This imbalance in the profitability of relationships, however, must not reflect in the bank’s handling of these relationships - and this is the service value that we instill in our people at Meezan Bank. From the junior-most branch staff right up to the bank’s senior management, we understand that each and every customer is equally important to the bank - more so because the bank is equally important to every customer. Striking this perfect balance between different relationships is what makes Meezan Bank special for our customers - and contributes to our success as Pakistan’s Premier Islamic Bank.

  16. Financial Analysis Statement of Financial Position The Bank It's non-performing (NPL) coverage ratio stood at 133% in 2017 - one of the highest in the banking industry in Pakistan. Advance to deposits ratio (ADR) of the bank now stands at 62%. During the year under review, the total assets of the bank grew by 19% to reach Rs 781 billion ($ 7.1 billion) as at December 31, 2017 as compared to Rs 658 billion as at December 31, 2016. The availability of Government of Pakistan (GoP) Ijarah Sukuk to deploy surplus liquidity continues to be a challenge for Islamic Banks. Only one auction of GoP Ijarah Sukuk was held during the year but unfortunately the issue size was small as compared to the demand for such instrument which led to a price war and the cut-off price was significantly lower than the equivalent instruments available to conventional banks . The Investments and Placements under Bai Muajjal increased slightly to Rs 266 billion from Rs 259 billion last year. In 2017, the Bank successfully completed a 6% Right Issue of shares to the existing shareholders at a price of Rs 50 per share (including of Rs 40 as premium per share) approved by the Board which increased the Bank’s equity by Rs 3 billion. The Bank’s Capital Adequacy Ratio (CAR) now stands at 12.89% - well above the minimum mandatory level of 11.28% for the year 2017 and this Right Issue will support the future growth plans of the Bank. The return on average equity on enhanced capital stood at 20.20%. On the liability side, the bank maintained its current and savings accounts (CASA) ratio at 75% despite intense competition for mobilization of low cost deposits in the industry and achieved a growth of 19% to close total deposits at Rs 673 billion. The Bank’s market share amongst the full-fledged dedicated Islamic Banks operating in Pakistan is approximately 58% and 35% for the Islamic Banking industry as a whole including Islamic Banking windows of conventional banks in Pakistan. The financing portfolio of the bank has increased by Rs 109 billion to register growth of 35% during the year and closed at Rs 420 billion. Financing in Corporate segment, SME / Commercial segment and Consumer segment (primarily Car Ijarah and Easy Home) grew by 29%, 53% and 48% respectively. In the corporate segment, major disbursements were made to entities backed by Sovereign Guarantee which carry lower risk weight for CAR purposes. To further enhance its exposure in SME and Commercial segment, the Bank has engaged International Finance Corporation (IFC) to provide advisory and technical services to revamp existing SME financing segment into a more robust SME Banking Model. Statement of Financial Position 35,077 Rupees in Million Equity & Surplus Assets Liabilities 201 6 201 7 The Bank has one of the lowest infection ratio of 1.54% in the Banking industry which bears testimony to the fact that the Bank maintains a high quality financing portfolio. The banking industry average portfolio infection ratio is 9%. However, recognizing some stresses in select sector exposures and prudent banking practices historically adopted by the bank, an additional general provision of Rs 850 million against potential non-performing financing was approved by the board during the year. This increase in General Provision also takes into account the aggressive growth in financing portfolio over the last few years. 30,474 627,293 657,767 746,622 781,699 Islamic Financing and Related Assets (Gross) 2017 3% 2% 1% 2016 1% 25% 1% 1% 4% 14% 12% 1% 7% 7% 17% 4% 3% 8% 5 % 14% 17% 20% 8% Agriculture, food, forestry and fishing Automobile and transportation equipment Cement Chemical and pharmaceuticals Others Individuals Power (electricity), oil, gas and water Services Sugar Textile Wholesale and retail trade Transport, storage and communication 23% 2% Deposits 2017 17% 1% 2016 1% 14% 1% 1% 1% 2% 2% 1% 3% 2% Agriculture, food, forestry and fishing Chemical and pharmaceuticals Construction Individuals Services Textile Transport, storage and communication Wholesale and retail trade Others 3% 2% 3% 3% 69% 24 MEEZAN BANK LIMITED 74%
  17. Profit and Loss Account CASA to Total Deposit Administrative and operating expenses increased to Rs 16 .8 billion from Rs 14.8 billion - an increase of 14% primarily due to increase in staff expenses, rent and costs associated with new branches - an investment which has reaped fruits for the bank, as is evident from the strong growth in deposits and profits over the years. The bank maintained the distinction of being the fastest growing bank in the industry with the branch network of over 600 branches in 159 cities. 70 71 72 2014 2015 68 66 75 75 2016 2017 60 50 40 30 20 10 0 2012 2013 NPL and coverage ratios 10 9 8 140 133% 130 121% 114% 110% 7 118% 116% 120 110 6 5 100 90 5.30% 4 3.60% 3 3.80% 80 3.30% 70 2.14% 2 1 60 1.54% 2012 2013 2014 2015 2016 Profit and Loss 2017 Profit before tax 10.252 2016 Profit after tax 6.313 Profit before tax 8.943 Net spread 20.814 Operating Expense 16.819 Commission 1.320 Coverage Ratio Growth in fee and commission income of 59% over last year stems from growth in trade finance business and other banking channels.The trade finance business handled by the bank, crossed Rs 700 billion milestone and recorded growth of 29% over the preceding year. This growth in trade business is supported by the Bank’s growing network of correspondent banking relationships around the world and better customer experience. Year-wise trend in% 80 NPL Ratio The Bank posted profit after tax of Rs 6.31 billion as compared to Rs 5.56 billion, an increase of 14% over the previous year. Earnings per share increased to Rs 6.13 per share from Rs 5.45 per share on enhanced capital after right issue. Notwithstanding the lower Discount Rate scenario and despite intense competition in the banking industry, the Bank's net spread before provisions increased by 16% from Rs 17.9 billion to Rs 20.8 billion primarily due to rise in financing portfolio and continued focus on maintaining optimal cost of funds through strong relationship management and better customer experience.
