Update on Kookmin Bank's Decision on Capital Injection in PT Bank KB Bukopin Tbk.
On February 16, 2023, KB Financial Group Inc. ("KB Financial Group") updated its previous disclosure made on October 11, 2022 regarding the decision by Kookmin Bank, one of KB Financial Group's wholly-owned subsidiaries, to inject capital into PT Bank KB Bukopin Tbk. ("Bank KB Bukopin"), as follows:
On February 16, 2023, the board of directors of Kookmin Bank passed a new resolution revising the maximum amount of capital injection to be made by Kookmin Bank into Bank Bukopin. Pursuant to this new resolution, if Bank KB Bukopin decides to increase its capital by issuing new shares in pursuit of its swift business normalization and procurement of future growth drivers, then Kookmin Bank would participate in such rights offering by Bank KB Bukopin within the maximum amount of IDR 12,000 billion (equivalent to approximately KRW 1 trillion) (the "Capital Injection"), an increase from IDR 8,436 billion, the originally planned amount of capital injection previously disclosed on KB Financial Group's Form 6-K furnished on October 11, 2022. The original amount was computed based on, among others, Kookmin Bank's ownership in Bank KB Bukopin, while the revised amount also reflects Kookmin Bank's most conservative considerations of several factors relating to the Capital Injection, including the conditions of the Indonesian financial market.
Note: Such amount in KRW is subject to change based on exchange rates.
Currently, however, details of neither Bank KB Bukopin's rights offering (including the number of shares to be issued and the issue price) nor the Capital Injection (including the number of shares to be acquired, the purchase price and the total number of shares to be owned by Kookmin Bank following the Capital Injection) still have been determined, and as such, KB Financial Group plans to make further disclosures at which point such matters have been determined. In addition, the expected date of the acquisition of Bank KB Bukopin's new shares is subject to further discussions with the financial authorities.
The key details of the Capital Injection remain the same as previously disclosed on KB Financial Group's Form 6-K furnished on October 11, 2022, except for Item 1.B and Item 4, as shown below:
