BEIJING, April 3 (Xinhua) -- Shanghai Pudong Development (SPD) Bank said its 2016 net profit climbed 4.93 percent from a year earlier to 53.1 billion yuan (about 7.7 billion U.S. dollars).
Revenue rose 9.72 percent year on year to 160.79 billion yuan last year, according to the bank's annual report.

The bank posted 16.12 percent increase in total assets, which amounted to 5.86 trillion yuan at the end of 2016.
