Haque, Ansarul, Economic Review


There are 11 commercial banks on the list of Karachi Stock Exchange in 1994. Two Banks namely Habib Credit & Exchange and Mehran Bank were merged with Habib Bank Limited and National Bank Limited respectively during the year 1994, while 3 newbanks namely Faysal, Platinum and Prudential Commercial Bank were listed on KSE during current year. The total Paid-up Capital of these Banks is Rs. 4,817.66 million, while free reserves and surplus stood at Rs. 3,684.54 million. General Break-up Value per Rs. 10/-worked out to Rs. 17.65. The respective Break-up Value of shares in descending order were as follows:

Bank of Punjab 29.11 28.51 M.C.B. 21.98 28.28 Bank Al-Habib 17.60 14.04 Soneri Bank 16.72 13.91 Prime Commercial 16.70 13.39 Askari Bank 16.00 12.77 Union Bank 15.62 13.55 Metropolitan Bank 14.98 12.30 Bolan 11.80 11.19 Indus Bank 11.38 10.75 Schon Bank 10.53 -

It will be seen from the above table that almost all the banks have shown an upward trend in their Break-up Value except MCB during the year 1994. The Break-up Value of MCB decreased to Rs.21.98 as compared to Rs.28.28 in 1993 mainly due to increase in its Paid-up capital from Rs.662.52 million to Rs.1117.99 million during the year under review due to issuance of bonus share at the rate of 1:2 in 1993.
