BCA to merge Rabobank Indonesia with BCA Syariah following acquisition

first_imgShe went on to say that the merger would increase the Islamic banking entity’s core capital without mentioning the figure.She said Rabobank’s core capital stood at Rp 384 billion, while BCA Syariah’s core capital stood at Rp 2.31 trillion as of 2019 after it injected Rp 1 trillion in capital in September of last year.BCA Syariah’s assets, meanwhile, stood at Rp 8.63 trillion in 2019 or up by 22.23 percent from the previous year.Given that BCA is aiming to grow the business, Vera said the bank had yet to have any intention to list BCA Syariah on the Indonesia Stock Exchange (IDX).In the meantime, Vera said BCA would focus on broader digital bank development and was testing the product on its own employees.“The launch will still be on schedule, October or November of this year,” she said, adding that it would target mainly millennial customers.BCA developed the digital bank after successfully acquiring Bank Royal in November 2019 for Rp 1.01 trillion.Following the acquisition, BCA injected Rp 1 trillion in capital into Bank Royal, making its issued and paid-up capital jump to Rp 1.29 trillion each from Rp 287.2 billion and boosting it to become a BUKU II bank category with a core capital of Rp 1 trillion to Rp 5 trillion.The plan was also in line with the digital banking trend during the pandemic, as it saw a 35-percent increase in digital banking transactions to Rp 5.1 billion as of the first half of this year.Jasa Utama Capital analyst Chris Apriliony lauded BCA’s plan to merge Rabobank with its Islamic bank subsidiary because of the huge potential from the large number of Muslims in Indonesia.“The merge would also impact the bank positively as it could significantly reduce operational cost in the long run,” he said.BCA’s shares, listed under the code BBCA at the IDX, have lost 3.37 percent of their value since the beginning of the year. As of 11 a.m. on Monday, the shares dipped slightly by 0.54 percent to Rp 32,300 apiece. Topics : Publicly listed Bank Central Asia (BCA) plans to merge newly acquired Rabobank Indonesia with its sharia financing arm BCA Syariah in 2021 to capture bigger opportunities in sharia-compliant financial products and services in Indonesia.BCA finance director Vera Eve Lim said on Aug. 28 that the bank expected to go forward with the merger in 2021 should the acquisition process go smoothly.“We’re currently focusing on completing Rabobank’s acquisition process with the Financial Services Authority [OJK], and once we finish, we’ll go forward with the merger,” she said during a virtual press briefing. BCA acquired all 3.72 million shares of the local arm of Dutch lender Rabobank from its five shareholders in December 2019, including its parent company Cooperatieve Rabobank UA.The country’s biggest privately owned bank by assets would buy Rabobank Indonesia’s shares for a total of US$20.5 million and one-time adjusted book value on closing.Vera went on to say that the merger between Rabobank and BCA’s sharia-compliant entity was aimed at grabbing the potential that Islamic banking presents in Indonesia.“I think there’s always an opportunity in the sharia market, especially in the commercial and small and medium enterprises [SME] segment,” she said, adding that the bank would continue BCA Syariah’s focus on SMEs and the retail segment.last_img read more

MBB : SAFE HOUSE: Syracuse completes perfect season at Carrier Dome behind dominant defense

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Comments Published on March 3, 2012 at 12:00 pmcenter_img Syracuse’s defensive game plan entering its contest with No. 19 Louisville focused specifically on two players.The Orange knew it needed to stop Peyton Siva from penetrating the 2-3 zone and keep Kyle Kuric from catching fire to knock off the Cardinals. If SU lost Saturday, it wouldn’t be because one of those two carried Louisville to the win.‘We really keyed in on their players,’ SU guard Scoop Jardine said. ‘We talked a lot that we weren’t going to let Kyle Kuric beat us or let Peyton Siva drive. We were going to have to let somebody else beat us.’No. 2 SU (30-1, 17-1 Big East) executed that game plan to near perfection in a 58-49 win over No. 19 Louisville (22-9, 10-8 Big East) in front of 33,205 fans at the Carrier Dome on Saturday. The second-largest crowd in the country this year watched the Orange defense suffocate the Cardinals’ attack. Kuric only scored eight points and went 1-of-7 from beyond the arc while Siva finished with four points and six turnovers.Louisville shot just 33.9 percent from the field and went a putrid 2-of-23 from deep. And offensively, Syracuse caught fire just before halftime and continued to shoot well the rest of the game to seal the victory.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textWith the win, SU finished the year undefeated in the Carrier Dome for just the second time in school history and tied the Big East record for most conference wins with 17.‘This group has had an unbelievable year,’ SU head coach Jim Boeheim said. ‘To win 17 in this league is a tremendous accomplishment for these players.’Louisville’s offense started the game hot, building a 15-9 lead as the Orange stumbled through the opening minutes. But after a goaltending call on Fab Melo with 11:46 left in the first half, Syracuse’s defense buckled down.The Cardinals scored just four points and made only one more field goal before halftime. And then, SU’s offense finally showed up.The Orange closed the half on a 17-4 run that included a smaller 12-0 stretch as guards Dion Waiters and Brandon Triche sparked the Syracuse offense. Waiters scored six of those 12 unanswered points and added an assist. Triche set up James Southerland for a 3 and a pair of free throws, and he also dropped in a layup.But Boeheim said the key to that run was defense.‘Our defense got better,’ he said. ‘We got some steals. We started to score a little bit. We made a couple shots. I think that kind of got us going.’Syracuse used the big run to take a 26-19 lead into halftime. Then Triche came out of the break on fire, scoring eight straight points after halftime to extend SU’s lead to 34-19.‘It opened up their defense more,’ Triche said. ‘They had to play me on the wing. We spread them out a little bit more.’While Triche set the tone for the second half offensively, Southerland did the same on the defensive end. When Louisville center Gorgui Dieng caught a pass in the paint heading toward the rim, the Orange forward met Dieng in midair and rejected his dunk attempt.Louisville only converted three field goals in the opening five minutes of the second half against the dominant SU defense.‘It’s about making guys uncomfortable,’ Jardine said. ‘They’re going to get good looks because they’re a good basketball team. They run some great sets. But when you make guys uncomfortable and run them off their spots, that’s what our defense does.’SU built its lead up to as many as 19 thanks to that stifling defense and an 11-of-20 shooting performance in the second half. And when the Cardinals eventually went on a run and cut the margin down to 10, the Orange defense once again rose to the challenge.Louisville made just two field goals in the next three minutes while Syracuse extended the lead back to 14 points. And with just a minute left to play at that point, the game was well in hand.‘Our defense was good,’ Boeheim said. ‘We didn’t really let them get many open shots, and then when they got some open shots, they just didn’t make them. Sometimes that happens.’[email protected]last_img read more

Can the Dodgers let the Diamondbacks run through their sprinklers instead?

first_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error We praise McCain’s resume, which shows he went to war to preserve the Dodgers’ right to party hearty with respect and dignity.So this is how the Dodgers repay the favor?Yes, and with plenty of interest, apparently mostly from the Arizona media, swimming in their own cesspool of ignorance.The Dbacks’ feelings were hurt. They asked the Dodgers not to do any celebrating on the field. They did it anyway.Listen, you put a swimming pool in your backyard and don’t expect neighbors to scale the fence?Be glad Dodgers players weren’t dropping their pants and relieving themselves in Lake Gibson.Why weren’t the Dbacks upset by the fact Dodgers pitchers hit five of their players, including star attraction Paul Goldschmidt, in the last two games of the series?Arizona officials should have been there acting as the lifeguards for this pool of tears if they were going to be this oversensitive.They can call this “tired” and “disrespectful” and “classless.” But that’s ignoring the fact that their former pitcher, Ian Kennedy, once threw at the heads of Yasiel Puig and Zack Greinke in a mid-June game at Dodger Stadium.After all this, the Dodgers should be thanking the hypersensitive Dbacks for that happening. It’s not a coincidence these Dodgers turned their season upside down after that, erasing a huge deficit and winning games at a ridiculous rate after that incident.“That dust-up against Arizona, you hated seeing it, but the next day, you saw real relationships developing in our clubhouse,” Dodgers GM Ned Colletti was saying while drying bubbly out of his eyes in the visiting clubhouse Thursday afternoon.“We learned a lot about each other that day. Maybe our team wasn’t as tight then, but they got the point.”Here’s the point: Next time you Dbacks win the NL West at Dodger Stadium, go ahead and climb up to the Hollywood sign and rearrange the letters. Turn over a cart of Dodger Dogs. Pants Tommy Lasorda.The Dodgers grounds crew might even let you run through the sprinklers if you’re being cool about it. Diamondbacks fans can go cry in it.Dodgers fans can continue to pour it all over themselves in celebration.Put it in a shot glass for Arizona senior senator, former presidential candidate and American war hero John McCain. He’s apparently willing to take the bullet for sending out a tweet calling the Dodgers a “no-class act” and “a bunch of overpaid, immature, arrogant spoiled brats” because a group of them dodged security, ran out of the clubhouse and dove into the Chase Field right-field swimming pool after clinching the NL West title Thursday afternoon.Maybe McCain has a Twitter account attached to his video poker phone app and sent that by mistake?McCain’s divine Diamondbacks took a dive in the division race, having once had the lead for the first couple of months before cannonballing out of contention.center_img Heard about the newest cocktail they’re serving at Arizona bars this weekend?It’s the Bloody Dodger.Korbel, with a splash of chlorine.With Hanley Ramirez’s bat to stir it up.last_img read more
