Commenting on the result, Kennedy Uzoka, the GMD/CEO of UBA Plc, said;“Given the operating environment in 2016, I am very pleased with our profitability; an impressive 32% growth in profit before tax to N91 billion. Nevertheless,The local currency weakness  in a number of our chosen markets, particularly the Naira devaluation in Nigeria, impacted on our cost  of doing business. Nonetheless, we continued to implement our cost management initiatives, which helped to mitigate the inflationary pressure on our operating expenses. Overall, we improved on our cost-to-income ratio, closing the year at 63%, in line with our target.

Whilst we will continue to grow across our operations in Africa, now representing 32% of Group revenue, we will maintain our culture of banking only quality and profitable assets.Also,  As we implement our Customer-first Philosophy, we are approaching 2017 with real optimism, especially as the outlook remains positive in many of our markets and we benefit from our increasingly diverse revenue streams. We reiterate our pledge to delivering excellent service to our customers, as we remain committed to creating superior and sustainable return for our shareholders.”

When the watch is working, the tourbillon is spinning fast in the skull's mouth, faintly visible through the gaps of the cage-shaped teeth made of rose gold, giving people not only a mechanical beauty but also an indescribable feeling. It can be said that it is a kind of awe of death, or it is a shock of immortal imagery. In short, let go of your thinking, on this fast-moving tourbillon, your thoughts have no end.
