CEO Nguyen Le Quoc Anh believe Techcombank is following its growth path as planned, in order to achieve its strategic short term and long term goals
Business results in the past few years prove the Techcombank’s success in its strategy and direction as well as the strong capability to execute its plans. While it is not the largest bank by size, in 2017, Techcombank was a leading bank in efficiency and sutainability in operation as demonstrated in metrics such as labour productivity, non-interest income ratio, cost to income ratio, ROAA and ROAE. Even in the regional context, the above metrics place Techcombank amongst the market leaders. This is in line with surveys conducted by leading advisory firms, such as McKinsey and Korn Ferry Hay Group, which found that Techcombanks’ corporate strength and human resources efficiency was one of the highest in the banking sector globally.
Mr. Nguyen Xuan Minh, who oversees Techcombank’s investment banking business and is the Chairman of Techcom Securities, adds that “the Vietnamese market is at a critical inflexion point. Techcombank, with a modern technological infrastructure, taking significant measures towards customer centricity, and committed to investing in developing our people and risk and operations excellence platform, has established a leading position in Vietnam. We believe that this position will be reinforced over time along with the development of the economy.”
At the same event, Techcombank also announced plans to organize an extraordinary meeting of shareholders on June 14, 2018, in order to seek approval from shareholders for a plan to supplement its charter capital from the banks’ owners’ equity. The purpose of this capital increase is to offer dividends to shareholders through retained earnings from the latest three years as well as the profit from the sale of treasury shares and the reserves that supplement charter capital, with a resultant charter capital level of VND34,970 billion. Shareholders will receive a stock dividend in a ratio of 1:2 (i.e. for each share held by a shareholder, they will receive two additional shares).
The CEO says “This charter capital increase plan is for the purposes of converting owners’ equity to capital that can be used to support business operation and growth, meeting all prudence and adequacy requirements, boosting risk management while facilitating the Bank’s stable and sustainable development. The share price will be adjusted in accordance with the stock dividend ratio. However, the valuation of the bank will not change. We believe Techcombank is following its growth path as planned, in order to achieve its strategic short term and long term goals”.
