Pre-Provision Operating Profit amounted to ₱80.6 billion, with revenue growth continuing to outpace cost growth.

Non-Performing Loan (NPL) ratio remained stable at 1.99% despite the higher interest rate environment, while NPL coverage improved to 176%. The Bank continues to set aside provisions in line with its conservative credit and provisioning policies.

Common Equity increased to ₱494.3 billion given continued profitable operations. Book Value Per Share (BVPS) increased 13% to ₱93.83.
