yhc9618 Qatar crisis could make MBSB-AFB merger a reality

EXPECTATIONS are running high that shareholders of Asian Finance Bank Bhd will agree to a sale of the Islamic bank to Malaysia Building Society Bhd (MBSB) ahead of a looming June 21 deadline.

According to sources, the crisis currently unfolding in Qatar — a result of Saudi Arabia and other Gulf countries cutting diplomatic ties with it — has put additional pressure on AFB’s largest shareholder, Qatar Islamic Bank (QIB), to sell its 66.67% stake.

The proposed plan involves MBSB buying AFB’s assets and liabilities in a deal that values the latter at a price-to-book value (PBV) of between 1.2 and 1.5 times, one of the sources says.

At this point, just two of AFB’s four Middle East shareholders — QIB and Financial Assets Bahrain WLL (6.67%) — have indicated they want to exit; the other two — RUSD Investment Bank Inc (16.67%) and Tadhamon International Islamic Bank (10%) — want shares in the enlarged banking entity, the source says.

As such, it is expected to be a deal that involves both cash and shares, with shares going to the shareholders that want to stay.

“Now, it’s just a matter of waiting for confirmation [from AFB] on pricing. That’s the only piece of information that’s needed before the parties can make their submissions to Bank Negara Malaysia. They expect to do it before the deadline,” the source tells The Edge.

Bank Negara on Dec 21 last year, gave the green light for MBSB, which is 60%-owned by the Employees Provident Fund (EPF), and AFB to hold merger talks. It allowed them six months to complete negotiations — hence, the June 21 deadline.

A merger of the two would create the country’s second largest standalone Islamic bank with total assets of RM47.81 billion, after Bank Islam Malaysia Bhd (RM53.5 billion).

It was initially expected that submissions would be made to Bank Negara last month, but AFB’s shareholders have been slow in responding on the pricing issue, the source says.

Nonetheless, there seems to be a strong degree of confidence that the MBSB-AFB merger will happen. “Given the crisis, if QIB doesn’t sell, how is it going to work together with the other Middle Eastern shareholders? As it is, they didn’t get along even before. It’s unlikely QIB will want to pump in more capital. And if QIB, as the big shareholder, sells, the others don’t really have a choice. That’s why I think this deal will happen,” an industry source points out.

QIB’s single largest shareholder is the Qatar Investment Authority. Last Monday, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Egypt and the United Arab Emirates cut diplomatic ties with Qatar, citing the latter’s support for Islamist groups as the reason. They have already cut air traffic to the small Gulf Arab state.

QIB had earlier already been unhappy with AFB’s other shareholders because it does have control over AFB despite its large stake, due to certain controversial provisions in a shareholders’ agreement. One of QIB’s frustrations is that it gets only one vote at AFB’s shareholder meetings, the same as each of the other three shareholders.

QIB and two other shareholders currently do not have any board representation at AFB, whereas before, they had as many as four. This is an indication that they are serious about selling their stakes, industry observers say.

After a long period without a CEO, AFB appointed Khalid Mahmood Bhaimia — former head of RHB Islamic Bank — to head the institution effective on March 21. Sources, however, indicate that he is on a short contract.

This is the second ongoing proposed banking merger involving the EPF. AMMB Holdings Bhd and RHB Bank Bhd, in which EPF is a common shareholder, obtained the central bank’s approval two weeks ago to start merger talks.

Non-bank lender MBSB is by far larger than AFB, with assets of RM45.27 billion as at end-2016 compared with AFB’s RM2.54 billion as at end-September last year. The main reason it is keen on acquiring AFB is to obtain the latter’s Islamic banking licence.

MIDF Research, in a report late last year, noted that since Malaysia’s banking sector has been trading below its five-year historical PBV of 1.3 times to 1.5 times, it would be fair for MBSB to pat 1.1 times to 1.2 times AFB’s nine-month book value of RM500.1 million for FY2016, to obtain a full banking licence. This would translate to a price of about RM550 million to RM600 million.

“While the expansion of profits and assets is likely to be immaterial, the proposed merger will benefit MBSB in another way. The full banking licence will enable MBSB to tap into new financial services segments which it cannot offer at the moment [such as trade facilities, collecting current account and savings account deposits, and offering other interbank instruments] to expand the business,” the research house said.

It all boils down to the parties agreeing on pricing now.

kevinobc MBSB seeks BNM nod on AFB merger plans Posted on 20 June 2017 - 10:40am Lee Weng Khuen sunbiz@thesundaily.com Print PETALING JAYA: Malaysia Building Society Bhd (MBSB) has applied to Bank Negara Malaysia (BNM) for approval from the central bank and/or the Finance Ministry for its proposed merger with Asian Finance Bank Bhd (AFB). MBSB had in last December received nod for talks on the merger plan. “Further announcements shall be made upon receipt of the decision from BNM,” MBSB said in a filing with the stock exchange yesterday, without giving any further details of its plans. This is the furthest MBSB has managed to proceed with its merger plans after two failed proposed corporate exercises with Bank Muamalat in 2016 , and a three-way merger with CIMB Group Holdings Bhd and RHB Capital Bhd in 2015. The proposed merger will create the second largest Islamic bank in the country with total assets of around RM48 billion. MBSB aims to become an Islamic financial institution by 2020 through its merger with AFB. The full bank licence will allow MBSB to tap into new financial services segments which it cannot offer at the moment, such as trade facilities, collecting current account savings account (CASA) deposits and offering other interbank instruments to expand its business. AFB, a full-fledged Islamic bank that was incorporated in Nov 28, 2005, has a branch each in Kuala Lumpur and Johor Baru as well as a representative office in Jakarta, Indonesia according to its website. Analysts have expected that the deal would translate into a price of about RM550 million to RM600 million, based on 1.1 to 1.2 times premium of AFB’s nine-month book value of RM500.1 million for FY16. Merger talks have included negotiations with AFB’s Middle East shareholders – namely Qatar Islamic Bank (66.67%), RUSB Investment Bank Inc (16.67%), Tadhamon International Islamic Bank (10%) and Financial Assets Bahrain WLL (6.67%). The Employees Provident Fund (EPF) is the single largest shareholder of MBSB with a 65.28% stake.
