1 Research and Statistics Department Monetary Authority of Macao Since December 2006, the Monetary Authority of Macao has conducted the Credit Card Survey (CCS) on a regular basis in view of the growing popularity of the electronic payment in the SAR. The first batch of CCS statistics was subsequently released to the public in May Starting from this issue of the Macao Monetary Research Bulletin, a report on Macao s latest credit card statistics will be published on a semi-annual basis. The regular dissemination of the CCS Report aims to facilitate a better understanding of the credit card activity and analyses of the consumption behaviours of Macao residents and tourists. It also helps monitor risks of the unsecured bank credit to individuals. 1. Composition of Credit in Circulation The total number of credit cards in circulation reached 319,835 at the end of June 2007, up 3.42% from three months ago or 5.59% from half a year earlier. By currency, Pataca (MOP) cards were the dominant type. The number of MOP cards was 249,142 at end-june 2007, accounting for 77.90% of the total number of cards in circulation. Meanwhile, the numbers of Hong Kong Dollar (HKD) cards, Renminbi (RMB) cards and other foreign currency (OFC) cards were 63,710, 6,980 and three respectively (Chart 1)

2 RMB cards recorded the fastest growth in the second quarter of 2007 (Table 1). Their number advanced 4.80% during the period. The numbers of MOP cards and HKD cards also gained 3.90% and 1.47% in respective order. The number of OFC cards, on the other hand, stayed at a meagre level of three. As illustrated in Table 1, similar growth patterns were observed in the first quarter of In the first six months of 2007, the numbers of RMB, MOP and HKD cards surged 9.89%, 6.37% and 2.22% respectively.

4 2. Financial Analysis of Credit Card Lending The financial status of credit card lending by banks in Macao is depicted in Table 2. At the end of the second quarter of 2007, credit card credit limit granted by banks in Macao reached MOP5.58 billion, 3.43% up on end-march Meanwhile, credit card receivables (including purchases and cash advances) amounted to MOP million, representing a 5.05% increase over three months ago. An utilisation rate of 15.04% was thus registered, while the rate at the end of the preceding quarter was marginally lower at 14.80%. In the second quarter of 2007, the credit card turnover totalled MOP1.14 billion, up 0.25% over last quarter. The cash advance turnover, which indicates financial stress of cardholders, occupied 9.30% of the total credit card turnover, slightly higher than the 8.44% registered in the previous quarter. On the other hand, credit card repayments slid 4.38% from the previous quarter to MOP1.16 billion. For the first half of 2007, the credit card turnover, cash advance turnover and credit card repayments grew 6.77%, 17.17% and 10.51% respectively, compared with the second half of The rollover amount, which represents borrowing by cardholders and a significant source of interest income for banks from credit card lending, reached MOP million at the end of the second quarter of The rollover amount made up 43.99% of credit card receivables, equivalent to a decrease of 2.19 percentage points over a quarter ago. At the end of the second quarter, the delinquent amount totaled MOP3.11 million. The delinquency ratio dropped further to 0.37%, in the sense that about 0.37% of credit card loans were granted to cardholders who did not meet their minimum repayment for 90 days or more. Decrease in delinquency ratio was generally observed in most credit institutions, showing an improvement in credit card lending quality

6 final consumption expenditure ratio slid by 0.98 percentage points to 13.84%, attributed to the 6.30% gain in household final consumption expenditure and a mild 0.70% decrease in the credit card turnover.

The local merchant turnover, including purchases with local and foreign credit cards, amounted to MOP6.04 billion in the second quarter of 2007, up 0.49% quarter-to-quarter. Meanwhile, the average turnover per merchant surged quarter-to-quarter by 3.70% to MOP1.33 million in the second quarter of For the first six months of 2007, the local merchant turnover and average turnover per merchant grew 20.62% and 19.64% respectively compared with the second half of

Meanwhile, the credit limit granted and credit card repayments grew at a steady pace. The financial status of credit card lending witnessed some improvement as shown in lower delinquency and rollover ratios
