    Banks face charter capital difficulties


    State-owned banks are finding it more difficult to increase charter capital, especially when they still have to pay dividends instead of keeping the money for this purpose. It is estimated that the State budget will get an additional nearly VND6.1 trillion (US$268.7 million) from the dividend payout of three State-owned banks VietinBank, Vietcombank and BIDV by the end of October this year. VietinBank on September 19 announced it will pay cash dividend to shareholders for 2016. The payment rate will be 7 per cent, meaning that for each share, shareholders will receive VND700 on one share holding. At this rate, the bank will pay dividend worth VND2.6 trillion for 3.72 billion shares held by the stakeholders. Of the total dividend, State capital representative State Bank of Vietnam, which holds 64.46 per cent of VietinBank's charter capital as of June 30, 2017, will receive VND1.68 trillion. Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ, VietinBank's strategic investor, will get VND514 billion, thanks to its ownership of 19.73 per cent of VietinBank's charter cap- ital. Previously, Vietcombank's board of directors also approved to make an 8 per cent div- idend payout on October 16. The bank will pay shareholders VND800 per share. With nearly 3.6 billion shares listed on the HCM Stock Exchange, the value of the dividend payout will reach nearly VND2.9 trillion. SBV is also the largest shareholder of Vietcombank, owning more than 2.77 billion

    shares, or 77.1 per cent of the bank's charter capital. The second-largest shareholder is Japanese Mizuho Bank Ltd, which owns nearly 540 million shares, or 15 per cent of the bank, while other shareholders own total 7.89 per cent of the bank's capital. Thus, the State will receive more than VND2.2 trillion from Vietcombank once the bank com- pletes its dividend payout while Mizuho Bank Ltd will collect VND431.7 billion. With these dividend payout plans, the three banks will contribute nearly VND6.1 tril- lion to the State budget this year.
