  • Bank Loans Classified as Substandard or Below: September, 2006

  • Bank loans classified as substandard or below (SBLs)–substandard, doubtful, or presumed loss–totaled KRW8.8 trillion at the end of September, unchanged from end-June. But the ratio of SBLs to total outstanding loans fell to 0.98%, the lowest ratio since the forward-looking criteria were first adopted in 1999. The SBL ratio averaged 1.02% at end-June and 1.22% at end-2005. A surge in new loans, which pushed the total outstanding loans to KRW895.2 from KRW861.3 trillion, was mostly responsible for the drop in SBL ratio.
