Turkey's Bank Asya Q2 net profit tumbles 81 percent
ISTANBUL Aug 12 (Reuters) - Turkish Islamic lender Bank Asya posted a net profit of 10.6 million lira ($4.9 million) in the second quarter, sliding 81 percent from a year earlier, it said in a statement to the Istanbul stock exchange late on Monday.
It has seen its profits and capital base collapse since it found itself at the centre of a power struggle between Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan and his former ally Fethullah Gulen, the Islamic cleric whose sympathisers founded the bank and who has since become Erdogan's foe.
