It is my pleasure to present to you today highlights of theperformance of Ecobank Liberia for the year ended 31st December 2011.Operating EnvironmentThe Liberian economy remained stable despite the challenging prospects for growth in the global economy as the euroentered a perilous new phase. Real GDP is projected to grow at 6.9%. The principal drivers of growth in the economyduring the previous year were the favourable performance of the agricultural sector and the resumption of iron oreexports.Consumer Price Inflation averaged 10.7 percent during the fourth quarter of 2011 from 9.0 at the end of September 2011.Increases in prices of domestic food, imported fuel, and the relatively poor state of the country’s infrastructure are someof the reasons for the rise in the general price level.Within this socio-economic context, there was increased competition in the banking sector as the players introducedseveral e-banking services onto the market, increased the size of branch networks, and reduced rates and service fees.Despite these challenges, Ecobank Liberia again set another record as it won the 2010 Banker of the Year in Liberia,awarded by the Banker Magazine, the leading global banking and finance magazine.“Ecobank Liberia won the2010 Banker of the Year inLiberia, awarded by theBanker Magazine“Ecobank Liberia Annual Report 2011 12

Notes to the Consolidated Financial Statements(All Amounts are expressed in thousands of Liberian dollars)Subsequent accrual of interest is credited to the interest insuspense account until the related loans and advances arebrought current by full settlement of the delinquentprincipal and interest.Interest is taken out of suspense only when it has actuallybeen paid by the debtor. All interests taken out of suspenseare credited to profit & loss of the current year.Interests on loans are returned to the accrual basis onlywhen the doubt about their collectability is removed andwhen the outstanding arrears of interest and principal arereceived.Interest income and expense on all trading assets andliabilities are considered to be incidental to the Bank’strading operations and are presented together with allother charges in the fair value of trading assets andliabilities in net trading income.(c) Fees and commissionsFees and commission income, including account servicingfees, sales commission, placement fees and syndicationfees, are recognized in the period in which the relatedservices are performed or when the related loans aredisbursed.(d) Net trading incomeNet trading income comprises gains less losses related totrading assets and liabilities and includes all realized fairvalue changes, interest, and foreign exchange differences.(e) Lease payments madePayments made under operating leases are recognized inprofit or loss on a straight line basis over the term of thelease.(f) TaxationTaxation comprises current tax alone. Taxation isrecognized in the income statement except to the extentthat it relates to items recognized directly in equity, inwhich case it is recognized in equity.Current taxCurrent tax is the expected tax payable on the taxableincome for the year, using tax rates enacted orsubstantively enacted at the balance sheet date, and anyadjustment to the payable in respect of previous years.(g) Cash and short-term fundsCash and cash equivalents include notes and coins onhand, balances with other Banks, balances held with theCentral Bank of Liberia and highly liquid financial assetswith original maturities of less than three months, whichare subject to insignificant risk of changes in their valueand are used by the Bank in the management of itsshort-term commitments.(h) Loans and advancesLoans and advances are non-derivative financial assetswith fixed or determinable payments that are not quotedin an active market and that the Bank does not intend tosell immediately or in the near term.Loans and advances are stated net of provision for bad anddoubtful items. Recoveries are credited to the profit andloss account when received. Interest income onnon-performing loans are suspended and only recognizedon a cash basis.Credit facilities are classified in the following fivecategories in line with the Prudential Regulations issued bythe Central Bank of Liberia. These classifications determinethe level of provision required against the perceived oranticipated diminution in the assets quality. Seeclassification below:ClassificationProvisionCurrent/non-classified 1%OLEM 5%Sub-standard 20%Doubtful 50%Loss 100%Current/non-classified loans and advancesLoans and Advances are deemed to be performing if thepayments of both principal and interest are up-to-date inaccordance with the agreed terms. An overdraft would beregarded as current if there was regular activity on theaccount with no sign of a hard core of debt developing.OLEM loans and advancesLoans and Advances in this category are currentlyprotected by adequate security, both as to principal andinterest, but they are potentially weak and vulnerable tocredit risk, although not to the point of justifying theEcobank Liberia Annual Report 2011 24


Notes to the Consolidated Financial Statements(All Amounts are expressed in thousands of Liberian dollars)classification” Substandard”. The credit risk may berelatively minor yet constitute an unwarranted risk in thelight of circumstances surrounding a specific case. Theweaknesses, may, if not checked or corrected, weaken theasset or inadequately protect the bank’s credit position atsome future date.Sub-standard loans and advancesNon-performing loans and advances for which the principaland/or the interest remain outstanding for ninety (90)days but less than on hundred and eighty (180) days shallbe classified substandard. Overdrafts and other creditswithout pre-established repayment programs areconsidered Substandard when the advances exceed thecustomer’s borrowing line for ninety (90) consecutive daysbut less than one hundred and eighty (180) days; or theborrowing line has expired for ninety (90) days but lessthan one hundred and eighty (180) days; or interest is dueand unpaid for ninety (90) days but less than one hundredand eighty (180) days and deposits are insufficient to coverthe interest capitalized during the period. The principalbalance outstanding (and not the unpaid amounts) is usedin determining the aggregate amount of past-dueobligations.Doubtful loans and advancesNon-performing loans and advances for which the principaland/or the interest remain outstanding for one hundredand eighty (180) days but less than three hundred andsixty (360) days shall be classified doubtful. Doubtful loansand advances display all the weakness inherent in loansand advances classified as sub-standard but with theadded characteristics that they are not well secured andthe weaknesses make collection or liquidation in full, onthe basis of currently available information, highlyquestionable and improbable. The possibility of loss isextremely high, but because of certain mitigatingcircumstances, which may work to the advantage andstrengthening of the facility, its classification as anestimated loss is postponed until its more defined status isascertained.Loss loans and advancesNon-performing loans and advances for which the principaland/or the interest remain outstanding for three hundredand sixty (360) days or more shall be classified as loss.Loans and advances are classified as loss when they areconsidered uncollectible and of such little value that theircontinuation as recoverable facilities is not defensible. Thisclassification does not imply that the facility has absolutelyno recoverable value, but rather it is not practical ordesirable to defer making full provisions for the facilityeven though partial recover in future may not be entirelyruled out. Loans and advances classified as loss includethose to bankrupt companies and insolvent firms withnegative working capital and cash flow or those tojudgment debtors with no means or foreclosable collateralto settle the debts. Licensed banks should not retain suchfacilities on their books while pursuing long-termrecoveries. Losses should be taken in the period in whichthe surface as uncollectible.(i) Property and equipment(i) Recognition and measurementLand and leasehold improvements comprise mainlybranches and offices. All property, plant and equipmentare stated at historical cost less accumulateddepreciation.Cost includes expenditures that are directly attributableto the acquisition of the asset (costs of bringing theassets to its location and working condition). Purchasesoftware that is integral to the functionality of therelated equipment is capitalized as part of thatequipment.Work in progress represents property underconstruction, or plant and equipment undergoinginstallation, and is not depreciated; upon completion ofconstruction or installation, the attributable cost of eachasset is transferred to the relevant asset category.When parts of an item of property or equipment havedifferent useful lives, they are accounted for as separateitems (major components) of property and equipment.(ii) Subsequent costsSubsequent costs are included in the asset’s carryingamount or are recognized as a separate asset asappropriate, only when it is probable that futureeconomic benefits associated with the items will flow tothe Bank and the cost of the items can be measuredreliably. All other repairs and maintenance are chargedto the income statement during the financial period inwhich they are incurred. Major improvements arecapitalizedEcobank Liberia Annual Report 2011 25


Notes to the Consolidated Financial Statements(All Amounts are expressed in thousands of Liberian dollars)(iii) DepreciationDepreciation of property and equipment is calculated towrite off the cost or valuation over the estimated usefullives of the assets on a straight line basis. Property andequipment are depreciated from the month the asset isbrought into use. The annual rates adopted for thevarious asset categories are as follows:i. Leasehold improvements Over the term of the leasesii. Motor vehicles 25.00%iii. Computers 33.33%iv. Furniture & equipment 20.00%Gains and losses on disposals are determined bycomparing proceeds with the carrying amount of theitem disposed of. These are included in the incomestatement.(j) Provision for loan lossesProvision for loan losses are made having regard to bothspecific and general risks. The specific element of theprovisions relates to those loans that have been individuallyreviewed and specifically identified as non-performing. Thegeneral element of the provision relates to those existinglosses, which although not yet specifically identified, areknown to be inherently present in the bank’s lendingportfolio at the balance sheet date.In determining the level of provisions required,Management considers the Prudential Regulations onassets classification issued by the Central Bank of Liberia(see note h above) and other factors including, but notlimited to domestic economic conditions, the compositionof the loan portfolio and prior loan losses experience.Provisions made during the year (less amounts release andrecoveries of loans previously provided for in part or inwhole) are charged as a separate amount in the profit andloss account. Loans are written-off when the extent of anyloss is confirmed against the related provision.(k) Employee benefits(i) Defined contribution plansThe Bank pays contributions to the National Social Securityand Welfare Corporation (NASSCORP) on a mandatory basis.The Bank has no further payment obligations once thecontributions have been paid. The contributions arerecognized as employee benefit expense when they aredue.(ii) Termination benefitsTermination benefits are payable when employment isterminated by the Bank before the normal retirementdate, or whenever an employee accepts voluntaryredundancy in exchange for these benefits. The Bankrecognizes termination benefits when it is demonstrablycommitted to either: terminating the employment ofcurrent employees according to a detailed formal planwithout possibility of withdrawal; or providingtermination benefits as a result of an offer made toencourage voluntary redundancy.(l) Share capital and reservesShare issue costsIncremental costs directly attributable to the issue of anequity instrument are recognized in profit or loss in theperiod in which the equity instrument is issued.(4) Financial Risk Management(a) Introduction and overviewThe Bank has exposure to the following risks from financialinstruments:• Credit Risk• Liquid risk• Market riskThis note presents information about the Bank’sexposure to each of the above risks.Risk Management FrameworkThe Board of Directors has the overall responsibility for theestablishment and oversight of the Bank’s riskmanagement framework.

This risk arisesprincipally from the bank’s loans and advances to customersand other banks, and investment debt securities. For riskmanagement reporting purposes the bank considers andconsolidates all elements of credit risk exposure (such asindividual obligor default risk, country and sector risk).Management of Credit RiskThe Board of Directors has delegated responsibility for theoversight of credit to its Credit Committee. A separate RiskManagement Department reports to the Board RiskCommittee and is responsible for managing credit risk,which includes:• Establishing the authorization structure for the approvaland renewal of credit facilities. All credit facilities requireapproval by the Bank Credit Committee or the Board ofDirectors as appropriate.• Reviewing and assessing credit risk. The Bank CreditDepartment assesses all credit exposure in excess ofdesignated limits, prior to facilities been committee tocustomers by the business unit/branch concerned.Renewals and reviews of facilities are subject to thesame review process.• Limiting concentration of the exposure to counterpartiesand industries (for loans and advances, and by issuer,credit rating band, market liquidity (for investmentsecurities)• Developing and maintaining the Bank’s riskgrading/classification in order to categorize exposuresaccording to the degree of risk of financial loss faced andto focus management on the attendant risks.
