SBI Q1 results: Net profit grows 2.8 times to record Rs 16,884 crore, exceeds Street estimates
State Bank of India (SBI) — the country's largest lender — on Friday reported a record standalone net profit of Rs 16,884.3 crore for the April-June period, beating analysts' estimates, driven by a rise in net interest income, healthy loan growth and lower provisions. The state-run bank had registered a net profit of Rs 6,068.1 crore for the corresponding quarter a year ago.
Its net interest income (NII) — or the difference between interest earned and interest paid — came in at Rs 38,905 crore for the first quarter of the current financial year, as against Rs 31,195.9 crore for the year-ago period, according to a regulatory filing.
According to Zee Business research, SBI was estimated to report a quarterly standalone net profit of Rs 15,680 crore and net interest income of Rs 40,600 crore.
