Bank Audi SAE, operating in Egypt, recorded a 58% yearly growth in its net profits to EGP 286.78M (equivalent to $32.31M). This was triggered by the 18.64% and 21.93% y-o-y increases in net interest income and net income from fees and commissions to EGP 889.96M (equivalent to $100.22M) and EGP 85.26M (equivalent to $9.6M), respectively.
