Barclays swings to £1.9bn loss, investment bank profits tumble
23 February, 2018, 04:56 | Author: Gladys Mathis
Barclays PLC showed its confidence in future earnings on Thursday by restoring its full dividend, despite lacklustre investment banking income, restructuring costs and US tax reforms hitting the bank's 2017 bottom line.
Pre-tax profits when exceptional items were excluded rose 10% to £3.54bn despite earnings at its investment bank plunging to £2.1bn, with Barclays blaming the 22% dive on "weak market conditions".
However, weak market conditions for its corporate and investment bank saw profits in the division tumble to £2.1bn a year ago from £2.7bn in 2016.
Profits growth was driven by positive operating jaws, the difference between the rate of revenue growth and that of cost growth, as operating expenses decreased 5% to £15.5bn even including litigation and conduct charges of £1.2bn. Revenue fell 2% to 21 billion pounds ($29.3 billion).
The British bank reported Thursday a loss on its full-year 2017 profits, due in part to the tax overhaul in the US and a weaker dollar.
Carillion collapsed in January with debts estimated at £1.5bn. PPI provisions were £300m lower year-on-year at £0.7bn, which was unchanged from the third quarter. As a result, it saw costs fall by 5% a year ago.

He said: "We have already started to see some of the benefits of our work in 2017". Barclays London-listed shares climbed 4.4% to 211 pence in trading Thursday.
The charge was one of a number of hefty one-off costs contained in Barclays' latest results. Finally, the group notes that CIB Markets income is running ahead of the prior year comparative for the current year-to-date.
