Revenue increased to RM7.999 billion from RM7.111 billion for the period reviewed.

AMMB's profit after tax and minority interest achieved 12.5 per cent growth to RM1.51 billion, driven by faster non-interest income growth.

The Board has recommended a final dividend of 13.5 sen.

AMMB said its gross loans, including Islamic financing sold to Cagamas, rose 5.7 per cent to RM77.7 billion supported by business and corporate loans growth.

Business loans grew 14.9 per cent to RM15.8 billion from a diversified asset base, while corporate and institutional loans expanded 13.5 per cent to RM14.6 billion in line with the growing share-of-wallet in key segments.
