BDO to redeem P15B worth of debt notes

By

The country’s largest lender BDO Unibank is set to redeem ahead of maturity P15 billion worth of debt notes qualifying as tier 2 or supplementary capital.

“The early redemption of these tier 2 notes is in line with the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas’ new regulations on bank capital (Basel 3) that will not recognize BDO’s existing unsecured subordinated debt as tier 2 qualifying capital,” the bank told the Philippine Stock Exchange on Wednesday.

BDO is set to redeem on Sept. 27 some P8.5 billion of the tier 2 notes while another series worth P6.5 billion will be retired on Oct. 7 this year. They will all be redeemed at a price equal to the par value plus accrued and unpaid interest.

As of end-June, BDO’s capital adequacy ratios to risk assets also remained above the regulatory minimum at 18.3 percent overall and 15.6 percent for core or tier 1 capital ratio. The bank has long prepared for the implementation of Basel 3 framework with a $1-billion stock rights offering last year that boosted its tier 1 capital base.

In the first semester, BDO posted a record-high net profit of P14.1 billion, more than double the level posted in the same period last year, as unprecedented trading gains complemented growth in interest earnings. With net income for the period already representing more than two-thirds of its P20.4 billion guidance for 2013, the bank is optimistic of hitting its yearend target.
