HCMC – Orient Commercial Joint Stock Bank (OCB) has announced plans to issue nearly 685 million shares to existing shareholders in a bid to boost its charter capital to over VND20 trillion this year.

If successful, the bank’s charter capital would rise from VND13.7 trillion to VND20.55  trillion, according to the documents for its 2023 annual general meeting of shareholders.

OCB looks to increase its total assets by 25% to VND242.152 trillion. The pre-tax profit target for 2023 is VND6 trillion, up 37% compared to 2022, while the non-performing loan ratio is controlled below 3%.

Currently, this bank has VND7.04 trillion in retained earnings, of which VND2.94 trillion is from 2022 and VND4.09 trillion from previous years. It has proposed using these retained sums and other sources from shareholders to spur capital and support its business operations.
