The new authorized capital consists of 4.5 billion common shares and 500 million preferred shares with a par value of P10 each.

The SEC approved an amendment in the bank’s bylaw to reflect this increase in authorized capital. The goal is “to enhance board’s effectiveness in conducting its business and to provide flexibility to the bank for future capital requirements,” East West Bank said in a disclosure to the Philippine Stock Exchange on Wednesday.

Antonio Moncupa, East West vice chair and chief executive officer, had said that the bank’s architectural infrastructure had been designed to be a bigger bank.
