CIBC profit beats estimates on capital markets, fewer provisions than expected


TORONTO, Aug 27 (Reuters) - Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce CM.TO beat analyst estimates for third-quarter profit on Thursday, following most rivals in receiving a boost from its capital markets business and taking fewer provisions than expected.

Adjusted net income fell to C$1.24 billion ($943.1 million), or C$2.71 a share, in the three months through July, from C$1.4 billion, or C$3.10 per share, a year earlier. Analysts had expected C$2.15 a share on average, according to Refinitiv data.

Provisions for credit losses (PCL) climbed to C$525 million from C$291 million a year earlier, although they were down from C$1.4 billion in the previous quarter. Estimates had called for PCL of C$715.7 million.
