The said bonus shares distribution is intended to meet the Financial Authority Service Regulation No.67/POJK/05/2016 regarding the business and institutional license of insurance companies. In respect to this regulation, the company plans to increase its issued and paid-up capita along with its shares outstanding by issuing bonus shares, which are taken out of the agio.
