Qatar National Bank injects Rp 2.18t into QNB Indonesia

The Qatar National Bank QPSC (QNB Group) as the controlling shareholder of Bank QNB Indonesia has injected Rp 2.18 trillion (US$162.72 million) into the bank as capital paid in advance as well as acting as standby buyer in the rights issue of Bank QNB Indonesia.

The additional capital is the realization of QNB Group’s commitment to maintain the bank’s strong capital structure as well as maintain the bank’s business growth stability, the QNB Group said in a statement.

From the total funds of Rp 2.18 trillion, Rp 2.06 trillion will be used to purchase HMETD offered during a rights issue and the remaining funds will be used for next year’s rights issue.

Funds from the rights issue, after issuance costs, will be used by QNB Indonesia to increase productive assets, particularly in the form of loan disbursements.

With the commencement of the rights issue and additional capital payments from QNB Group, the bank’s capital adequacy ratio (CAR) will be 16 percent, well above the Financial Service Authority’s (OJK) minimum requirement.

On Monday, QNB Indonesia held an extraordinary shareholders meeting at the bank’s head office in Jakarta. The meeting approved Heba Ali Ghaith Al-Tamimi and Stephen Holden as commissioners and Adhiputra Tanoyo as director. The resignation of Grant Eric Lowen as a commissioner was also approved.
