BDO net income up 12% to ₱23.9 billion in 1H 2022

2022 August – BDO Unibank, Inc. (BDO) grew its net income by 12% year-on-year (YoY) to P23.9 billion in the 1H 2022 on strong results across its core businesses.


Customer loan portfolio went up by 9%, funded by an 11% rise in CASA deposits which now comprise 85% of total deposits.


Non-interest income expanded to P34.3 billion, lifted by the strong expansion in fees and insurance premiums.


Pre-provision operating profit (PPOP) was up to P39.2 billion reflective of the strength of core income sources amid tempered rise in OPEX.


Asset quality sustained its improvement as NPL ratio went down further to 2.39% vs. 2.72% a quarter-ago and 3.12% a year-ago.


The Bank continues to roll out new digital capabilities and self-service technologies across branches to make banking services more accessible, easier to use and operationally efficient. These branch innovations include paperless straight through processing capability, covering 80% of branch transactions, and card less automated teller machine (ATM) transactions using biometrics (fingerprint scan or facial recognition) and QR codes.


The Bank is now also offering its mobile wallet, BDO Pay, to non-BDO account holders. BDO Pay does not require any initial deposit nor maintaining balance, and currently allows fund transfers to other bank accounts without cost. 


BDO’s established business franchise, healthy capital position, and sustainable earnings performance reinforce the Bank’s resilience against prevailing macro headwinds and put it in a good position to capitalize on the country’s structural opportunities for long-term sustainable growth.
