1. NPA in oil and gas exposures: DBS bank has been plagued by major exposure to weak oiland gas services. The bank had a total of SGD 5.1 billion of exposure in the sector as of 2017 of which it has recognized SGD 3.0 billion as non-performing on a conservative basis. The bank took the step to accelerate the recognition of residual weak oil and gas support service exposures as non-performing to remove uncertainty regarding its asset quality.
