Taiwan's 15 Financial Holding Companies See Combined Profits Surge 10% to NT$148 B. in First 10 Months

2012/11/15
Taipei, Nov. 15, 2012 (CENS)--Taiwan's 15 financial holding companies (FHCs) scored profits of NT$148.44 billion (US$4.95 billion) in the first 10 months, up 10% year-on-year, and such figure is very likely to hit record high for the full year.

Among the 15 FHCs, SinoPac Financial Holding Co. witnessed the highest profit growth of over 90% due to its renminbi (RMB) business. Shin Kong Financial Holding Co. and China Development Financial Holding Co. followed with corresponding growth of 70% and 60%, respectively.

However, Yuanta Financial Holding Co. and Waterland Financial Holding Co. suffered sharp drops of 57% and 40%, respectively, due mainly to the bearish stock market here.

In October Fubon Financial Holding Co. gained after-tax profits of NT$1.92 billion (US$64 million), and NT$24.73 billion (US$824.33 million) in the first 10 months, with earnings per share (EPS) of NT$2.6 (US$0.086), the highest among the 15 FHCs.

In the same period Mega Financial Holding Co. ranked second with after-tax profits of NT$19.217 billion (US$640.57 million) and EPS of NT$1.68 (US$0.056).
