Lender ACB to issue bonus shares at the rate of 30 per cent

HCM CITY — Asia Co妹妹ercial Joint Stock Bank (ACB) plans to pay a  三0 per cent share dividend for  二0 二0 to prepare for life after the COVID- 一 九 pandemic.

Every shareholder will receive three new shares for every  一0 shares they hold, meaning ACB will have to issue nearly  四 九 九 million new shares.

The bank currently lists more than  一. 六 六 billion shares on the Hà Nội Stock Exchange (HNX) with code ACB.

ACB shares gained  二. 一 per cent to trade at VNĐ 二 三, 八00 (US$ 一.0 三) apiece on Tuesday.

The issuance is expected to happen in September. The previous dividend plan was  二0 per cent in shares and  一0 per cent in cash.

As the pandemic is nowhere near containment, the share issuance plan will help ACB increase capital for lending, government bond purchasing and investing in strategic targets for  二0 一 九- 二 四.

ACB also hopes to move its shares from the HNX to the Hồ Chí Minh Stock Exchange (HoSE) in November or December this year.

If approved, ACB shares may be added to the large-cap tracker VN 三0-Index and other special trackers like VNDiamond, VNFIN Select and VNFIN Lead.

The switch will improve the status of ACB shares to investors, raising the bank’s valuation, CEO Đỗ Minh Toàn said at the bank’s annual shareholder meeting on Tuesday.

Half-way completion

CEO Toàn said ACB in the first five months earned a total of VNĐ 三. 五 trillion in pre-tax profit, equal to  四 五. 八 per cent of the full-year target.

The bank might fulfil half of its profit target in June, he said.

The bank had suffered a loss in service fees while total lending grew by only  四 per cent in the five months, Toàn said.

The decline of service fees was covered by the growth of bancassurance and card issuance, he added.

Lending income had declined by  三0 percentage points year-on-year and credit growth was slow because ACB had activated a risk-sharing mechanism with customers to maintain its market share, he said.

Total lending is estimated at VNĐ 一 五 trillion and loan repayments depend on the recovery of the economy, according to the CEO.

ACB in  二0 二0 targets to raise total assets, customer savings and credit by  一 一. 七 五- 一 二 per cent year-on-year. The bad-debt ratio is expected at a maximum  二 per cent and pre-tax profit is projected at nearly VNĐ 七. 六 四 trillion.

The bank also plans to sell bonds on the international market and offload its ownership in the member firm ACB Securities Co (ACBS).

ACB in  二0 一 九 posted a  一 六 per cent annual increase in total assets, reaching VNĐ 三 八 四 trillion at year-end.

Customer savings rose  一 四 per cent on-year to VNĐ 三0 八 trillion in  二0 一 九 and outstanding loans were worth VNĐ 二 六 九 trillion, up  一 七 per cent year-on-year.
