The organisation net interest income in 2009 is $ 6114 million. That is decreased in 2010 at the rate of 6.79%. The reason behind this change is the new adopted FRS which is applied in the current financial year. In 2011, the net interest income of the group has also increased ($ 6555 millions). That is 15.02%. That affects the total income of the organisation in a large extent (7.40%). The organisations group performance is quite good in the recent years. Total income of the DBS has increased in this year (7.98%). Expense of the organisation has reduced in great extent (17.18%). In this year DBS did not provide any goodwill charges but in 2010 organisation provided the good will charges ($ 1018 million). So automatically the expense of the DBS group increase.

2.0. SWOT analysis:2.1. Strengths: The stronghold of DBS is its market share in Singapore and Hong Kong. The products and service offerings of DBS are diversified in nature and will help them in occupying more customers and generating bigger revenues (Krschner, 2008). Global Finance awarded DBS Best Bank in Singapore and Safest bank in Asia. These awards will take the brand image of the company at a higher level earning more customer loyalty. They have expanded their business in 15 countries serving around 4 million customers. In comparison to the other players in the industry the dividend yield provided by DBS is much better. The work force of DBS also contributes to the success of the company. They have around 20000 experienced and skilled professionals working for them in all their branches (Elton et al. 2009).2.2. Weakness: The main weakness of DBS is their low operations in the European and US market. Another main problem being faced by DBS is that the major portion of the revenues is coming from the banking and treasury sector. The other offerings are not being capable to generate the expected revenues (Brealey et al. 2008). 2.3. Opportunity: DBS has a good reputation and brand image in the banking industry. The asset management industry is also growing and the market entry barriers are very low (Bodie et al. 2008). Growth in the rate of retail savings and investments in the Asia pacific region provides a scope for taking their market share to a higher level. Developing neighboring countries like India offer opportunities of expansion and growth to the company.2.4. Threats: The effects of the global economic meltdown are still being faced by many industrial sections lowering the rate of investments (Levy, 2011). Moreover ambiguity in the Asian market and the global financial market will also affect the operations of DBS. The competition in the banking sector is increasing with more European banks entering Asian market and the market space is getting compressed. Liquidity regulations also affect the global banking sector (DeAngelo et al. 2007). 3.0. Porters Five Forces analysis of DBS:3.1. Threats of new entrants (Moderate): Banking sector is growing rapidly and though new banks are not coming up as a threat; other multinational banks are entering the Asian market. Banks like Standard Chartered, Deutsche Bank are growing their business in countries like India, Sri Lanka, Japan, etc. These countries are potential customers for DBS and can help them in growing their business and revenues.3.2. Power of Suppliers (Less): The power of suppliers majorly relies on the government grants and other supports. The power of supplier is negligible in the banking sector and does not influence the operations of DBS on a larger extent. However, the threat of losing employees may be high as other banks offering more remuneration may tempt skilled employees to switch.3.3. Power of Buyers (High): The buyers in the banking sector mainly refer to the consumers and other banks interacting with DBS. The products offered by the banks must be capable of attracting customers. As there are number of competitors available in the market, the buyers have many options to choose from. However, the brand image of DBS will help it in negotiating the power of the consumers (Woelfel, 2009).
3.4. Availability of Substitutes (High):The competition in the banking industry is very high. Apart from the local and regional banks, European multinational banks are also affecting the market of DBS. The products offered and the benefits provided by the competitors should be analyzed by DBS. Banks like Standard Chartered, Deutsche Bank are conquering the market of DBS.
3.5. Competitive Rivalry (High): The banking sector is extremely competitive. DBS should launch new and better products for their customers so that competitors dont think about switching their bank (Wahlen & Brown, 2010). The competition will tend to increase with the growth of the market, DBS cannot control the growth but they can formulate ways to minimize the competition by taking themselves to a higher level. 4.0. Ratio analysis: Ratio analysis is a tool which primarily uses for the measurement of the organisations financial performance. It is actually a quantitative analysis process.
