For release: 3 November 2016

ANZ NZ delivers another solid full-year result

Australia and New Zealand Banking Group Limited (ANZ) 2016 results were released today, with ANZ New Zealand[1] delivering a cash profit of NZ$1.53 billion, down 9%, and a statutory profit of NZ$1.54 billion, down 13% on the 2015 financial year.

The 2016 financial year includes charges of NZ$178 million associated with specified items [2] announced at the ANZ Group 2016 full year results. Excluding these charges, cash profit was NZ$1.66 billion, down 2%.

Net interest income increased 5% compared with the previous year, primarily reflecting continued lending growth, while interest margins have contracted due to strong lending competition and a customer preference for fixed rate mortgages. The decline in other operating income reflected lower trading income and losses on hedging derivatives.

ANZ New Zealand Chief Executive Officer David Hisco said: “We had a solid year and while our net profit after tax wasn’t as strong as the 2015 financial year, the New Zealand business is performing well and reflects the performance of the economy.
