The Discount Group's Net Income for the first nine months of 2012 totaled NIS 633 million, compared to NIS 628 million for the first nine months of 2011, an increase of 0.8%.  

The Return on Equity attributable to the Bank's Shareholders for the first nine months of 2012 was 7.7%, on an annual basis, compared to 8.2% for the first nine months of 2011.

Main factors affecting the Group's business results for the first nine months of 2012, compared to the first nine months of 2011:

-    A decrease of NIS 116 million in net interest income (3.3%).

-    A decrease of NIS 52 million in expenses for credit losses (9.9%).

-    An increase of NIS 217 million in non-interest income (9.7%), affected mainly by an increase of NIS 183 million in non-interest financing income (181.2%), an increase of NIS 18 million in commissions (0.9%) and an increase of NIS 127 in severance pay fund profits. It should be noted that in the first nine months of 2011, other income included NIS 48 million from the sale of the index-linked notes operation and a receipt of NIS 67 million from an insurance company.

-    A decrease of NIS 48 million in the Bank's share in the operating income of affiliated companies, net of tax effect. This decrease was caused by a provision for impairment of the Bank's investment in the shares of the First International Bank in a net amount of NIS 73 million.
