JAKARTA. The plan of PT Bank Central Asia Tbk (BBCA) or BCA to acquire PT Bank Royal Indonesia is ongoing and will be decided in the company's Annual General Meeting of Shareholders (AGM) on April 11, 2019.
Two sources familiar with this plan said that the discussion regarding Bank Royal's acquisition by BCA is narrowing and estimated to be completed soon. "The acquisition is in accordance with the OJK's policy that expects banking consolidation," the sources told CNBC Indonesia.
According to CNBC Indonesia reports, the corporate action plan has been discussed among Bank Royal employees.
"BCA is a public bank, so it is tied with stock market regulations. In accordance to the regulations, we have to obtain the AGM's approval before the management can provide an official explanation," he said.
BCA's AGM is scheduled on April 11, 2019. The AGM summons and agenda will be delivered by BCA on Wednesday (13/3).
