VietinBank eyes 29 pct charter capital hike
It is seeking shareholders’ approval, saying the task is urgent since its charter capital has not been increased since 2013.
The lender plans to use the profits of the last three years to pay dividends to shareholders at a rate of 28 shares for every 100 held.
Charter capital is an important criterion for ratings, and an increase in charter capital would allow it to expand lending, the bank said in a statement.

The State Bank of Vietnam holds a 6446 percent stake in the bank, and Japan’s MUFG Bank owns 1937 percent.
VietinBank and the rest of the “big four” state-owned lenders have been seeking to increase their charter capital for years to meet international capital adequacy ratio norms.
