Shaken by the news that BNI will be acquired, this is what Bank Mayora said

Jakarta, CNBC Indonesia – The management of PT Bank Mayora did not deny, nor did they confirm the news that the bank would be acquired by PT Bank Negara Indonesia Tbk (BBNI).

Bank Mayora Compliance Director Tiolina Tumanggor said the authority to confirm the sentence rests with BNI.

“I have not been able to provide confirmation, BNI should be able to answer this matter,” Tiolina said to CNBC Indonesia, Tuesday (19/10/2021).

He said, Bank Mayora still needs to increase core capital until the end of this year in accordance with the provisions of the Financial Services Authority (OJK), where by the end of this year banks are required to have a core capital of at least Rp 2 trillion.

To note, until the end of June 2021, Bank Mayora’s core capital has only reached Rp 1.2 trillion. So there is still a gap of at least Rp 800 billion to be fulfilled.

Tiolina revealed that the company’s existing shareholders have committed to comply with these provisions by the end of 2021.

“For capital, existing shareholders have standby funds to fulfill this year’s minimum,” he said.

Meanwhile, BNI management through BNI Corporate Secretary Mucharom said that the bank’s acquisition plan is actually in line with future growth plans.

Especially now that BNI’s capital has become more solid, so acquisitions are one of the stages of growth that can be done.

“As a public company, of course, we want to always perform from time to time. One of BNI’s growths is through inorganic growth,” Mucharom told CNBC Indonesia, Tuesday (19/10/2021).

“By taking into account the increasingly solid capital, the company’s performance is getting better, even above what has been projected, so that the company is currently entering a more serious stage regarding the corporate action. [akuisisi],” he added again.

However, he is still reluctant to mention which bank will be acquired because it complies with governance provisions.

“Because all corporate actions must comply with existing governance, it is with a heavy heart that we have not been able to convey the names of targets and partners who will walk with us,” he said.

The official website notes that Bank Mayora has obtained a commercial bank business license in accordance with the Decree of the Minister of Finance of the Republic of Indonesia No. 719/KMK.017/1993 dated July 14, 1993 and became a Foreign Exchange Commercial Bank in 2013 according to the Decree of the Governor of BI No. 15/5/KEP.DPG/2013 dated 7 May 2013.
