  6. including loss from impairment of non-financial assets of KZT 28.5bn
 
 
Net income increased to KZT 89.7bn for 2Q 2019 compared to KZT 24.1bn for 2Q 2018 mainly due to loss from impairment of non-financial assets for KZT 28.5bn in 2Q 2018, as well as Kazkommertsbank's (KKB) de-recognition of tax loss carry forward of KZT 43.3bn in 2Q 2018 due to the merger into Halyk Bank.
 
Interest income increased to KZT 179.9bn for 2Q 2019 compared to KZT 171.0bn for 2Q 2018 mainly as a result of increase in average balances of interest-earning assets. Interest expense decreased slightly by 0.6% compared to 2Q 2018. Net interest margin increased to 5.1% p.a. for 2Q 2019 compared to 5.0% in 1Q 2019 mainly due to increase in share of placement of interest-bearing liabilities into interest-earning assets.
 
Cost of risk on loans to customers for 2Q 2019 was at 0.3% due to one-off repayments of large ticket problem loans. 
 
Fee and commission income* for 2Q 2019 increased by 13.9% p.a. vs. 1Q 2019 as a result of growing volumes of transactional banking, mainly in payment card maintenance, as well as cash operations and bank transfers - settlements.
Prior to the merger, the transfers within legal entities' current accounts in Halyk and KKB were treated as external transfers and relevant fees were applied. After the integration, the transfers between those current accounts are being treated as internal and therefore are free of charge. As a result, fees derived from Bank transfers - settlements decreased in 2Q 2019 vs. 2Q 2018.
 
Fee and commission expense increased by 14.9% compared to 1Q 2019 mainly due to increased number of transactions of other banks' cards in the acquiring network of the Bank.
 
Other non‐interest income increased by 70.8% to KZT 48.7bn for 2Q 2019 vs. KZT 28.5bn for 1Q 2019 mainly due to lower loss from revaluation of swap with NBK, and higher insurance underwriting income as a result of increased number of attracted pension annuities by subsidiary company JSC Halyk Life.
 
Operating expenses for 2Q 2019 decreased by 47.9% vs. 2Q 2018 mainly due to loss from impairment of non-financial assets of KZT 28.5bn in 2Q 2018 and cost optimisation on the back of synergy effect from merger of KKB into the Bank. Operating expenses for 2Q 2019 increased by 9.9% vs. 1Q 2019 mainly due to the indexation of salaries and other employee benefits starting from 1 March, 2019.
 
The Bank's cost-to-income ratio decreased to 22.3% compared to 44.6% for 2Q 2018 on the back of lower operating expenses and higher operating income in 2Q 2019 vs. 2Q 2018. Operating income increased by 4.1% vs. 2Q 2018 mainly due to increase in net interest income.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
* Starting from 1Q 2019 the portion of fees relating to payment card operations, which was previously accounted within cash operations and bank transfers, are represented as fees derived from payment card operations. Figures for 2Q 2018 were recalculated accordingly.

Compared with the 1Q 2019, loans to customers increased by 2.0% on a gross basis and 2.1% on a net basis.
