KBank presses ahead with Customers Life
Platform of Choice strategy

Mr. Banthoon Lamsam, Chairman of the Board of KBank, said that the Thai economy will likely post steady growth in 2019. Despite sagging demand abroad, domestic spending, buoyed by both public and private investments, may play a more important role in bolstering the Thai economic performance. It is expected the Thai GDP growth will reach 4.3 percent in 2019, which would be lower than the 4.6 percent pace projected for 2018 due to the slowdown in the export sector and tourism caused by the high 2018 base and the protracted US-China trade dispute that may dampen the global trade overall. Major drivers for the Thai economy in 2019 may include steady public infrastructure investment and the scheduled general election that will likely help reinvigorate investment climate overall while Thailands interest rates will be on the upward trend amid lofty household debt. Amid numerous challenges, KBanks 2019 business operations will continue to focus on our Customer Centricity philosophy. With this mantra, we will press ahead with the Customers Life Platform of Choice strategy by using K PLUS, which has the highest number of users of any mobile banking applications in the country, to introduce financial and lifestyle services to meet the needs of individual customers. Our financial and IT capabilities will be enhanced further to allow KBank to be more responsive to every situation and become a data-driven bank, thus paving the way toward being a Bank of Sustainability.

With regard to overall goals for 2019, KBank looks forward to achieving loan growth of 5-7%, which would be consistent with the 2019 economic growth, breaking down into corporate loan growth at 3-5%, SME loan growth at 2-4% and retail loan growth at 9-12%. We also set growth targets for our net interest margin (NIM) at 3.3-3.5%, and non-interest income growth at -5 to -7%. KBanks NPL ratio is projected at 3.3-3.7%. Mr. Banthoon added that KBank continues to operate business, based on being a Bank of Sustainability, and under appropriate risk management and good governance. We are also building a balance in economic, social and environmental dimensions via strategies that will enable us to achieve and create sustainable returns over the long term. Such a sustainable development philosophy has been instilled in all of our operations until it becomes part of our corporate DNA, which has helped create maximum benefit for all stakeholders and promote sustainable growth to Thailand.

EXIM Thailand Finances Gissco's Production
and Export of Metal Casting Machinery

Mrs. Wantana Mongkolsri, Senior Executive Vice President of Export-Import Bank of Thailand (EXIM Thailand), jointly with Mr. Sangop Thanabumrungkul, Managing Director, Gissco Co., Ltd. (Gissco), and Assoc. Prof. Dr. Jessada Wannasin, CEO of Gissco, signed a financial facility agreement worth 5 million baht on November 7, 2018 at EXIM Thailand's Head Office to support Gissco's expansion of production and export of metal casting machinery and equipment using innovative technology for enhanced production efficiency. Among its key clientele are large corporations in automobile and electronics industries, such as Toyota Motor Corporation in Japan, and Hyundai Motor and LG Electronics in South Korea. EXIM Thailand's financial support is in line with its strategy to assist high-potential SMEs in growing their export with emphasis on innovation and production technology development. Gissco is an SME with a success story in translating their R&D into product invention under "GISS" Technology (Gas Induced Semi-Solid Technology) which has won a number of international awards. GISS Technology helps close certain technological gaps for metal casters and parts producers by reducing formation of air bubbles and waste material associated with the die-casting process, resulting in around 20% higher efficiency in die casting, twice longer die life, and significant cost reduction.

"EXIM Thailand strives to support Thai SME exporters, the country's essential economic growth engine, in converting their R&D activities into commercial innovation and utilization while helping to eliminate their financial limitations. This aims to help Thai exporters to compete in high-end markets effectively and sustainably," added Mrs. Wantana.

EXIM Thailand rendered a credit facility of 5 million baht to Gissco Co., Ltd., manufacturer and exporter of machinery and equipment for die casting under its own brand and proprietary "GISS technology," which has earned the company international acclaim. This has been in line with EXIM Thailand's strategy to support high-potential SMEs applying innovative technology to boost their competitiveness in the global markets.
