Saudi Hollandi Bank, Saudi Arabia's fourth-largest listed bank, said on Saturday its fourth quarter net profit rose 35.6 percent compared to the same period last year due higher operating income.

The lender said in a statement posted on the Saudi bourse's website it made SAR313.4m (US$83.6m) in the last three months of 2012 compared to SAR231.2m in the last quarter of 2011.

Saudi banks have enjoyed successive years of expansionary government budgets, ample liquidity and improving corporate loan demand.

Operating profit for the fourth-quarter grew by 9.2 percent to SAR550m, Saudi Hollandi said, and income from special commissions increased by 10.5 percent to SAR345.1m.

Saudi Hollandi's loans and advances portfolio climbed 20 percent to SAR45.3bn.
