HÀ NỘI — The State Bank of Việt Nam (SBV) has permitted Sài Gòn-Hà Nội Commercial Joint Stock Bank (SHB) to raise its charter capital to over VNĐ12 trillion (US$527.9 million).
This increase from the current VNĐ11.2 trillion ($492.7 million) was allowed as part of a plan approved at this year’s SHB shareholder meeting.
SHB will take responsibility for implementing the plan, according to the relevant laws and regulations including the stock ownership limit of its shareholders.
After completing procedures to issue shares, the bank is required to submit an application to the SBV to revise the charter capital.

It also planned a dividend payment of 9 per cent while the bad debt rate was less than 3 per cent. — VNS
