BBTN Bank Only Apr24 Results

  • BBTN's net profit reached Rp984bn (+5% yoy) in 4M24, supported by a 27% yoy decline in provisions offsetting the 9% decline in PPOP caused by a 614bps increase in CIR to 61.2%.
  • The 4M24 net profit forms 26% of the consensus FY24F, i.e., inline (4M23 at 27%).

  • CIR was higher at 61% in 4M24 (vs. 55% in 4M23) caused by 17% higher opex, mainly from higher salary expenses.
