Doha Bank (DHBK) reported a net operating income of QR459.5mn in-line with our estimate of QR451.4mn (variation +1.8%). Total Revenue also came in-line at QR732.9mn vs. our estimate of QR716.4mn (variation of 2.3%). DHBK’s reported net profit of QR333.1mn in 3Q2017 beat our estimate of QR295.4mn on the back lower than expected net provisions and impairments. Bottom-line drop sequentially was due to a decline in net interest income coupled with an increase in provisions & impairments; YoY growth was driven by strong net interest income and fees. DHBK reported net income of QR331.1mn vs. QR351.1mn in 2Q2017, declining by 5.1% QoQ (QR310.6mn in 3Q2016, +7.2% YoY). Net interest income slipped sequentially to QR552.1mn while provisions increased by 3.0% to QR125.8mn (we were expecting provisions of QR155mn). On the other hand, growth in fees (+20.7%) and flat opex prevented a further drop in the bottom-line. Growth in earnings YoY was driven by net interest income (+8.4%) coupled with fees (+17.1%). Provisions increased by 21.3% on a YoY basis. Spreads tightened QoQ vs. expanding in 2Q. Net interest income decreased by 2.1% QoQ (+8.4% YoY) to QR552.1mn. DHBK’s net interest margin contracted by 11bps QoQ (flat YoY) to 2.64%. The tightening of the spread sequentially was due to cost of funds climbing up by 18bps while yield on assets moved up by 3bps. On a YoY basis the NIM was stable as result of yields and cost of funds both growing by ~20bps. Efficiency ratio remained stable QoQ and improved YoY. Opex dipped by 0.6% QoQ (+3.1% YoY) to QR273.4mn, resulting in a stable C/I ratio at 37% vs. 37% in 2Q2017 (39% in 3Q2016). Asset quality came under some pressure. DHBK’s asset quality worsened with the bank’s NPLs gaining by 4.9% QoQ (+8.3% vs. 1Q2017) to QR2.0bn. Moreover, The NPL ratio moved to 3.26% from 3.11% in 2Q2017 (2.99% in 1Q2017). The coverage ratio increased to 121% vs. 112% in 2Q2017 (120% in 4Q2016). Loans remained muted while deposits contracted. Net loans were flat QoQ & YTD at QR59.0bn, while deposits declined by 6.2% QoQ (down 5.7% YTD). Hence, the LDR was lifted to 112% vs. 106% in 2Q2017 (110% in 1Q2017). Capitalization remains at healthy levels. DHBK ended 3Q2017 with a CAR of 16.9% (post rights issue in 2Q) vs. 14.8% in 1Q2017 (15.4% at the end of 2016). Recommendation and valuation: DHBK trades at a P/E and P/TB of 10.0x and 0.8x on our 2017 estimates, respectively. (QNBFS Research, Company financials)  IQCD's bottom-line rises 9.7% QoQ in 3Q2017 coming in-line with our estimate – Industries Qatar's (IQCD) net profit rose 9.7% QoQ (+1.6% YoY) to QR747.81mn in 3Q2017, in line with our estimate of QR733.30mn (variation of +2%). The consensus net income mean estimate was QR804.33mn, primarily because of an outlier estimate. The company's steel revenue came in at QR1,149.29mn in 3Q2017, which represents an increase of 25.3% QoQ (+14.2% YoY). This was higher our estimate of QR963.18mn, a somewhat surprising number given the blockade; we await more details from management but our sense is blockade’s impact was only felt from the month of September, as flagged in our preview note on October 2, 2017. However, as expected, steel margins were impacted by higher iron ore prices; the trading statement also pointed to utility costs as a contributor to the margin compression. Other details remain limited but fertilizer and petchems JV income came in QR567.25mn, below our estimate of QR645.00mn, while selling costs doubled its quarterly run rate to QR17.36mn. The group’s financial position remains solid as cash across the group stands at QR11.4bn after paying 2016’s dividend of QR2.4bn, and periodic debt payments. Total debt stood at QR2.4bn; down QR0.6bn from December 2016-end levels. We retain our Market Perform rating on the stock. (QNBFS Research, Company financials, Gulf-Times.com)  QIIK's bottom line rises 2.7% QoQ in 3Q2017, in-line with our estimate – Qatar International Islamic Bank's (QIIK) net profit rose 2.7% QoQ (+5.2% YoY) to QR234.87mn in 3Q2017 , in line with our estimate of QR221.59mn (variation of +6%). Total income from financing & investing activities increased 9% QoQ and 7.4% YoY in 3Q2017 to QR444.15mn. The bank's total assets stood at QR50.64bn at the end of September 30, 2017, up 10.4% QoQ (+17.5% YoY). Financing assets were QR29.91bn, registering a rise of 4.2% QoQ (+9.8% YTD) at the end of September 30, 2017. Deposits expanded by 15.1% QoQ (+24.5% YTD) to QR33.2bn. In 9M2017, QIIK’s Chief Executive Officer, Abdulbasit Ahmad Al Shaibei said, “total revenues for the third quarter reached QR1.38bn, up 10% on QR1.26bn in 3Q2016. QIIK’s financing portfolio reached QR29.9bn in the third quarter compared to QR26.8bn in the same period last year, the growth rate being 11.5%.” With regard to the major financial indicators, the CEO said, “QIIK’s capital adequacy ratio based on the Basel III requirements reached 17.36%, which proves the strength of the bank’s financial position and the wise policies it pursues, especially in risk management. “The cost to income ratio at 24.4% is one of the best in the banking sector. The credit to deposits ratio at 84.2% reflects the growth of customer

The Bank’s operating income has also rose by 13% during the period compared to the same period in 2016. The performance in total operating income was delivered on the back of core underlying transactions emanating from IBQ’s strong client franchise. Corporate Banking delivered a stellar set of nine month results by advancing its net profit by 27% on 2016 results with retail banking and private banking also generating positive returns, despite the current climate. IBQ’s Managing Director, Omar Bouhadiba said, “This is a credible set of results for IBQ considering the unique challenges we are facing in today’s environment. These results prove yet again that IBQ’s revenue streams are sustainable and strong. The positive momentum is clear.” The Bank’s expenses remain in line with expectations with the cost income ratio showing a 10% reduction from last year, as IBQ continues to relook and reshape its cost structure where appropriate while keeping pace with technology, complying with the highest security standards and safeguarding client’s data and assets. The shape of the balance sheet continues to evolve but the asset quality has remained stable, with the non-performing loan ratio at 1.20%. IBQ’s net interest margin, return on average assets and most operating metrics continued to improve, and the Bank’s return on average equity now stands at a healthy 12.7%, compared to 11.4% last year. (Peninsula Qatar)  IHGS reports net loss of QR0.57mn in 3Q2017 – Islamic Holding Group (IHGS) reported net loss of QR0.57mn in 3Q2017 as compared to net loss of QR0.54mn in 2Q2017.
