K&H Bank, the Hungarian unit of Belgium's KBC, had consolidated after-tax profit of HUF 20.5 billion in 2012, up from HUF 600 million in 2011, CEO Hendrik Scheerlinck said at a press conference on Monday. The proportion of non-performing loans in the portfolio fell to 12.0% at the end of December from 12.7% at the end of September, but was up from 10.3% at the end of 2011, Scheerlinck said.
