BNP Paribas SA's (BNP.FR) first-quarter net profit rose 22%, boosted by capital gains on some disposals.

Net profit for the period was 1.92 billion euros ($2.15 billion) compared with EUR1.57 billion a year earlier. The sale of 14.3% of SBI Life Insurance Co. (540719.BY)--BNP's Indian joint venture with the State Bank of India--boosted the bottom line, France's largest listed bank by assets said Thursday.

Revenue increased 3.2% on year to EUR11.14 billion.

Analysts had expected a net profit of EUR1.99 billion on revenue of EUR10.74 billion for the period, according to a consensus forecast provided by the bank.

BNP's core Tier 1 capital ratio--a key measure of capital strength-- slipped to 11.7% in March from 11.8% at the end of December.
