SCIC to sell Maritime Bank’s shares second time

The State Capital Investment Corporation (SCIC) will put up more than 2.4 million shares of Maritime Bank for a public auction on the Hà Nội Stock Exchange on March 28.
 
The initial price of each share will be VNĐ12,400 (US$0.54).
 
Interested investors must register to buy the whole lot.
 
This is the second attempt by SCIC to offload Maritime Bank’s shares since its failure in November 2015.
 
Experts, however, have predicted that this auction too would fail due to overpricing since Maritime Bank’s shares are being traded at some VNĐ7,000-VNĐ8,000 per share on the Over-The-Counter (OTC) market.
 
In addition to this, the share offering accounts for only 0.3 per cent of the bank’s charter capital, which is quite less to participate in the bank’s management.
 
Earlier, Việt Nam Posts and Telecommunications Group (VNPT) had announced the third auction of more than 71 million shares of Maritime Bank, equivalent to 6.09 per cent of its capital, at a minimum price of VNĐ11,900 per share.
 
Its two previous auctions, in March 2017 and January 2018, failed to draw investors.
 
Maritime Bank, founded in 1991 in the northern port city of Hải Phòng, had an initial charter capital of VNĐ40 billion. It was relocated to Hà Nội in 2005 and acquired Mekong Development Commercial Joint Stock Bank in 2015, lifting its charter capital to VNĐ11.75 trillion, with total assets of some VNĐ104 trillion.
 
The lender is one of the most aggressive commercial banks to sell bad debts to Việt Nam Asset Management Company, with a total value of almost VNĐ10 trillion by the end of 2015.
 
Prices of Maritime Bank’s shares on the OTC market has doubled in the past one year, from VNĐ4,000 per share to VNĐ8,000, owing to active divestment plans by stakeholders. — VNS
