It was set up at the instance of the Government in 1976 as a joint venture between the Government of Bangladesh and sponsors in the private sector with the objective of working as a finance company within the country and setting up joint venture banks/financial institutions abroad. The Government held 49 per cent shares and the rest 51 per cent were held by the sponsors and general public. In 1983 when the Government allowed banks in the private sector, IFIC was converted into a full-fledged commercial bank. The Government of the People’s Republic of Bangladesh now

This report is prepared as a requirement of MBA program as a part of internship of the Department of Finance, University of Dhaka. The report covered the time period from 21 January, 2007 to 07 March, 2007 of 1 month & 15 days. There are five chapters in the report covering a description of IFIC Bank Ltd. and operational and financial activity. The first chapter deals with the methodology followed in the study and motivation behind the work. Chapter two is devoted to Pallabi branch as I was given placement at this branch as an intern of the bank. Chapter three covers the profile of IFIC Bank Ltd. in two different perspectives: a. Organizational and b. operational. The first section covers IFIC at its organization base describes the departments and their job level also the employee profile. The operational overviews entitles the bank’s different banking operation such as deposit, loans & advances, international business, information technology and introduction of new product.

Chapter four contains the financial statement analysis of the bank. The Balance sheet & the Profit & loss Account of the bank is analyzed to identify the strength and weakness and compare the performance over the years 2002, 2003, 2004 & 2005. Chapter five concludes the report containing findings of the study. The International Finance Investment & Commerce Bank Limited is a full service commercial bank of the Peoples Republic of Bangladesh. For the last two decades there has been a number of reformation in the banking sector of Bangladesh as well as of the global banking system and some new dimensions have evolved to match changes in the world’s flow of economic activity. In terms of mode of service, reducing time & complicated paper work create significant economies of scale for the banking service as a whole. Bangladesh is also trying to reach that standard of service. The competition and other factor for this alleviation are there in the commercial banking sector. The report tries to portray this effort and identify the limitations there on. Motivation IFIC Bank Ltd is serving for a long time, as a commercial bank. From the beginning government and public sponsors comprises its equity structure. The bank has survived the economic crises of the country and demonstrated a sound financial performance. It has also expanded its business outside Bangladesh and is offering almost every newest banking product and service. The bank has a significant share in foreign trade. So I thought as a student of finance IFIC Bank Ltd is the right place to learn more about finance. Objectives of the study

1. To have an insight of day to day banking operation; and 2. To evaluate the financial performance of IFIC Bank Ltd. Approach and Methodology The research methodology followed in this report is in accordance with the objectives, requirement and scope of the study. The study has many limitations because of my inability to collect all the related information. In this report the effort was given to emphasize on an overall performance evaluation of the International Finance Investment & Commerce Bank Limited. The different techniques used in the analysis are 1. Time series analysis is done with last 20 year’s data of deposits.

2. Ratio and Trend analysis to evaluate financial position. For an example, the burden of debts and the company’s ability to repay them can be best evaluated by comparing I) firm’s debt to its assets and II) the interest it must pay for its funds to the interest it earns from its lending operations. 3. Common size analysis for identifying trends in financial statements. The analysis is useful in comparative evaluation, where all income statements items are divided by sales and all balance sheet items are divided by total assets. The common size income statement shows each item as a percentage of sales and common size balance sheet shows each item as a percentage of total assets. 4. Percentage change analysis, where growth rates are calculated for all income statement items and balance sheet accounts. Percentage change analysis helps to identify exclusively, the influence of any individual item. For an example it will identify if the interest expense decreased or increased the reported income. 5.

SWOT analysis, which is a qualitative judgment and represents the Strength, Weakness, and Opportunities and Threats for the company in terms of its financial states, service, client, contribution to the economy, growth and creditworthiness, stated in a brief manner.

In this chapter financial statement of IFIC Bank Ltd. is analyzed in the context of second objective served by such analysis. The techniques used are SWOT analysis, Ratio and trend analysis, Percentage change analysis and Common size analysis. Some of the component of

these techniques can not be covered as nature and criteria of the absence of with specific nature and criteria. Part A: Time Series Analysis

Time series analysis of Deposit (1984-2005) Year 1984 1985 1986 1987 1988 1989 1990 1991 1992 1993 1994 1995 1996 1997 1998 1999 2000 2001 2002 2003 2004 2005

∑Y*∑t = 66398929.08

(∑t)2 = 64009

t =11.5

Ý= 11929.38

Trend equation for time series analysis is, Y = a + bx, where,

Yt 863.4 3172.8 7032.39 14888.32 25493.3 35476.68 46987.5 66275.92 86352.84 116490.3 140222.5 162784.2 192544 218735.2 251902.4 267713.4 281817.8 317100.4 363505.2 395979.4 436264.1 495113.7 ∑Yt = 926716

a = Ý – bt b = (∑yt - ∑y∑t/n)/ ∑t2 - ∑t2/n Now, b = (∑Yt - ∑Y ∑t/n)/∑t2 - (∑t)2/n = (3926716 - (262446.36*253)/22)/ (3795-(2909.5/22)) =1026.067 And, a = Ý – bt = 11929.38 - 1026.067*11.5 =129.6056 So, the trend equation of deposit is, Y = 129.6056 + 1026.067x

Growth Rate (GR) of deposit, = [ n-1√Yn/Y1-1]*100 = 16.8% Acceleration Rate (AR) of deposit, = [ n-1√(Yn/Yn-1)/(Y2/Y1)-1]*100 = 13.46%

Significance: I. II. III.

During the period 1084-2005 deposit increased at an average rate of TK. 1026.067 million per year. Growth rate (GR) indicates during the period of 1984-2005 deposit increased at an average rate of 16.8% per year. Acceleration rate of 13.46% indicating that in future the GR in each successive year will be 113.46% of the previous year’s GR.

Part B: Ratio and trend Analysis


Liquidity Ratios:

Indicate the firm’s ability to payoff its obligation at anytime. The two type of liquidity ratio are, a. The Current Ratio, used for short term obligation. b. The Quick Ratio deals with inventory.

Here current ratio of IFIC is analyzed: 1 0.8 0.6 Current ratio

0.4 0.2 0 2002


Year Current




















(Amount in Taka) Current


(Amount in Taka) Current ratios

Significance: The liquidity ratio across the years has been steady.


Debt management ratios:

The extent to which a firm used debt financing, or financial leverage, has three important implications:

a. By raising funds through debt, stockholders can maintain control of a firm without increasing their investment. b. To provide a margin of safety creditors are concerned of the equity or owner supplied fund. The higher the proportion of total capital provided by stockholders, the less the risk faced by creditors. c. If the firm earn more on investments financed with borrowed funds then it pays in interest, the return on the owner’s capital is magnified or ‘leveraged’ So debt management ratios help to figure out how the capital is structured. There are three kinds of debt management ratios, are: 1. Total debt to Total asset; shows how the firm is financed 2. Times Interest Earned (TIE); shows ability to pay interest 3. EBITDA coverage ratio; shows ability to service debt. Here TIE ratio of IFIC bank ltd. is analyzed: 1.13 1.12 1.11 Tie ratio

Significance: IFIC Bank Ltd. has maintained a steady Times Interest Earned ratio across the years.

Part C: Percentage Change Analysis

Percentage change analysis is a technique where growth rates are calculated for all income statement items and balance sheet accounts. Percentage change analysis helps to identify exclusively, the influence of any individual item. For an example through percentage change analysis one can identify if the borrowings decreased or increased the reported assets and liabilities.
