According to company’s financial results, net interest income has increased by 11 percent, reaching USD 123 million, mainly as a result of an increase in income from student and personal loans and lower interest expense.

Also, provision for loan losses have decreased by 64 percent from 2011, primarily driven by lower charge-offs as a result of the continued decline in delinquencies. The reserve release for Q1 2012 was USD 226 million, versus a release of USD 271 million in Q1 2011.
