As this book is a Research Report, conducted and presented for the partial fulfillment of the requirement to qualify as the Research Scholar (PhD Scholar), it is presented in APA style with minor amendment in display only. This is an independent study course work, worth 3 credits, conducted under the supervision of a PhD faculty member of SZABIST, Islamabad. The basic theme of the study was the analysis of the financial performance of the local and foreign controlled commercial banks, registered in Karachi Stock Exchange. Indirectly, this study adopted the form of comparative analysis. As this is, basically, an applied study, less emphasis is given on theoretical literature review and the econometric-related conceptual frameworks. It revolves around 9 independent variables and one dependent variable, i.e. Financial Performance. Financial performance was taken as the net market value minus net book value and its correlation was sought with 9 independent variables. During this step by step study, 33 total tables were added which contained data duly compiled, manipulated, calculated, interpreted and presented in a systematic way to deduce the results. The major drawback of the study is that the findings of the study and its conclusion were left incomplete, intentionally, as the Research Adviser was of the view that this part must be dealt with during the dissertation. Conclusion of the Study Two major conclusions of the study were: Financial performance of the 10 foreign controlled commercial banks (with 51% or more shares in the hands of foreign stockholders/investors) is better than that of the 15 local controlled commercial banks (with less than 51% foreign shares in the hands of the stockholders/investors). Out of eight significant and measurable variables, selected during the course of the study, three independent variables, ‘cash in hand and other treasury banks’, ‘advertisement and publicity expenses’ and ‘profit after taxes’ seems to have significant impact on the financial performance of the foreign controlled commercial banks. Whereas the four independent variables, ‘non-interest expenses’, ‘capital efficiency’, ‘earning per share’ and ‘dividend income disbursed’ have considerable impact on the financial performance of the local controlled commercial banks.
