Bosowa seeks to annul Bank Bukopin private placement plan, sues OJK

first_img“The OJK has shamed us by stripping our right to vote despite acknowledging full well that we still hold a stake in Bank Bukopin,” he told The Jakarta Post over the phone, claiming that the company had been notified it was unable to vote when the meeting had started.“Given the circumstances, we plan on going to court to annul the decision made in the meeting, as the votes did not reached the 75 percent minimum threshold.”He also refused the private placement plan as Bank Bukopin already has enough capital to support its liquidity.The bank held an extraordinary general shareholders meeting on Tuesday seeking its shareholders’ consent to conduct a private placement. A majority of the shareholders agreed to the plan as it was aimed at further strengthening the bank’s capital structure and solve liquidity issues. Indonesian conglomerate PT Bosowa Corporindo plans to annul publicly listed Bank Bukopin’s private placement plan, claiming that the Financial Services Authority (OJK) has stripped its right to vote.The company also filed a lawsuit against the OJK at the Central Jakarta District Court on Monday, accusing the agency of violating the law by instructing Bank Bukopin to conduct a private placement.Bosowa president director Rudyanto said on Tuesday that the company’s representatives walked out of a shareholders’ meeting held to approve the placement plan after it was announced that Bosowa did not have the right to vote. The publicly listed bank was injected with a total of Rp 838.93 billion (US$57.25 million) in fresh funds following a rights issue in July, which brought the bank’s capital adequacy ratio (CAR) to 14 percent from 12.59 percent in June.It also gave the bank a new controlling shareholder, South Korea’s KB Kookmin Bank, whose stake rose to 33.9 percent from 22 percent. Existing controlling shareholder Bosowa also remained as Bank Bukopin’s controlling shareholder as it maintained its ownership at 23.4 percent.Despite the fact that Bosowa holds the second-largest stake in the bank, the OJK instructed state-owned Bank Rakyat Indonesia (BRI), which provides technical assistance for Bukopin to solve its liquidity problems, to vote in favor of the private placement on behalf of Bosowa.The decision came after the OJK sent a letter to Bosowa in June, warning it to not obstruct new investors from injecting funds into Bank Bukopin in an effort to solve the bank’s liquidity problems.Bank Bukopin’s liquidity issues and its shareholder commotion surfaced after customers in June were seen lining up for hours just to withdraw or transfer money at the bank’s branches. The bank was limiting daily withdrawals and requiring customers seeking to make withdrawals of more than Rp 10 million to contact the bank two days prior.Bank Bukopin later issued a statement, explaining that the withdrawal limits at several branches were “situational” and it would still allow customers to make transactions.The measure was taken as the bank’s consolidated short-term liquidity coverage, known as liquidity coverage ratio (LCR), stood at 112.03 percent in the first quarter, while its consolidated long-term liquidity coverage, known as the net stable funding rate (NSFR), stood at 100.31 percent. Both figures were nearing the OJK’s minimum threshold of 100 percent.Bank Bukopin president director Rivan A. Purwantono, however, declined to comment on the commotion on Tuesday, saying that the OJK deemed Bosowa had failed to fulfil its commitments as controlling shareholder.“In such a case, the OJK would punish the controlling shareholder by revoking its right to vote during a general shareholders’ meeting,” he said, adding that Bosowa would remain the bank’s shareholder regardless of the sanction.center_img Topics :last_img read more

Fonte backs Bertrand for England

first_img Press Association The on-loan Chelsea full-back blasted his first Saints goal as Ronald Koeman’s men saw off QPR 2-1 at St Mary’s on Saturday. Bertrand has two England caps and a Champions League winners’ medal, but his season-long switch to Southampton is his ninth loan stint away from Chelsea. Captain Fonte believes Southampton can now help 25-year-old Bertrand force his way back into Roy Hodgson’s England plans. “I’ve been telling him a lot he needs to get forward, that he needs to start scoring goals to get in the England squad,” said Fonte. “He has the ability for that. He’s a great player and he’s been great for us so far. “He came and he gelled very well. Also, we want to keep pushing him so he can be better and better. “He’s a player with a great pedigree. “I think he’s enjoying it here: we gave him a lot of confidence, a lot of self-belief. “He’s matured now, he’s a little bit older and everything’s getting together for him. “I just hope he can keep pushing on, and I hope he can get in the England squad.” Southampton manager Koeman won 78 caps for Holland as a defender packing a goal threat, and he can see a kindred attacking spirit in Bertrand. The former Ajax and Barcelona defender said Bertrand now needs regular football to reach his potential. “We spoke about the possibilities after (Luke) Shaw went to United because we needed a player in that position,” said Koeman. “If you are a Chelsea player that means you have good quality but he missed playing regular games. “I like him as a player because he’s an offensive left full-back. “He has shown his qualities from the first day, but I expected this kind of quality. “All he needed was to play every weekend, and now he’s doing that it makes him stronger and more confident.” Ryan Bertrand can develop the goal threat to break back into the England squad, according to Southampton team-mate Jose Fonte. last_img read more

GFSCA retain Masters crown with crushing win over Regal

first_imgBy Frederick HalleyDEFENDING champions Guyana Softball Cricket Association(GFSCA) made it two in a row with a crushing nine-wicket victory over archrivals Regal All Stars Masters when the seventh edition of the Guyana Softball Cup climaxed at the Demerara Cricket Club (DCC) ground last evening.Set a moderate 102 for victory after restricting Regal for 101 for nine in their allotted 20 overs, GFSCA rushed to their target in 12.3 overs with opener Yunis Usuf unbeaten with an attractive 61, decorated with six fours and two sixes. Regal’s lone wicket was that of Ravi Lutchman who was bowled for five in the fourth over.Thereafter, it was the Usuf show as he singlehandedly took his team to victory and the coveted $600,000 first prize. Usuf shared an unbeaten stand of 76 with veteran Ramesh Narine (12) as the GFSCA players and supporters celebrated yet another victory over Regal after also defeating them in New York earlier this year.Earlier, Regal innings started disastrously after they were asked to take first strike, losing the wickets of the in-form Mahase Chunilall ((0), bowled by Clyde Canterbury and then Mahendra Hardyal (0), run out at the non-striker’s end without facing a delivery.Things got even worse when David Harper and skipper Mahendra Arjune ended up in the same crease as the former became the second run out victim with just four runs on the board in the second over.Arjune and Eon Abel (18) tried desperately to repair the innings, adding 45 for the fourth wicket before Abel departed. Thereafter, wickets fell at regular intervals as GFSCA kept a tight rein on the proceedings.Arjune eventually went, stumped for a top score of 30, the ball richocheting off the wicketkeeper’s foot unto the stumps. Raymond Harper (15) and Eric Thomas (11) had starts but failed to build on them as Regal were restricted to 101 for 9, a total that proved inadequate at the end.The game was marred by an injury to Regals’ David Harper, who was trying to retrieve a ball from the boundary and injured his shoulder and had to be taken to the hospital for treatment.Karibee girls started the day’s action by winning from Trophy Stall Angels by 12 runs, while Blairmont made it a double for Berbice by inflicting a crushing 88-run win over Georgetown Cricket Club in the Under-13 final, the first of its kind since the commencement of the tournament seven years ago.last_img read more

Shafer publicly introduces new coordinators, assistants from past jobs at Northern Illinois, Western Michigan

first_imgScott Shafer reached into his coaching past to build his new staff at Syracuse. The Orange’s new head coach hired coaches who share his football values and philosophies, but also on-field systems and schemes.Shafer introduced the bulk of his staff at a press conference Monday in the Iocolano-Petty Football Wing of Manley Field House. He hired George McDonald as his offensive coordinator and Chuck Bullough as his defensive coordinator. Shafer also named DeAndre Smith as his running backs coach, Tim Lester his quarterbacks coach and Clark Lea his linebackers coach.“It’s great to get the band back together with people that have the same philosophical view on how you develop a young man through this great sport,” Shafer said.McDonald worked with Shafer at Northern Illinois and Western Michigan. McDonald was hired as Arkansas’ wide receivers coach in December after spending two seasons at Miami (Fla.) in the same role, but left the Razorbacks only a few weeks later to join Shafer.“I’ve been chasing this dream for a long time. I’m very excited to be here,” McDonald said. “This has been my dream, to be an offensive coordinator.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textFormer Syracuse offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett left the Orange early this month to join Doug Marrone and the Buffalo Bills, but his system will remain in place. McDonald and Hackett worked together at Stanford and developed a philosophy together on how to learn offense.McDonald said Hackett was in town last night to visit his family, and they had a chance to speak. But McDonald said they’ve always spoken about once a month.While he’ll have a new-look offense with the Orange, McDonald said Hackett brought the assistants here for a reason.“There’s really good wide receivers here, maybe some that nobody knows about. There’s really good quarterbacks here, maybe some that nobody knows about,” McDonald said. “I think this is exciting to me because you actually get to come in on the ground floor and develop a quarterback, develop a receiver.”McDonald said he’ll keep the up-tempo offensive approach, but will also build an offense that’s physical.McDonald also brings a strong recruiting background to Syracuse. With his coaching at Miami, he knows the coveted South Florida area well, a place where the Orange has recruited in the past. McDonald was also named a top-25 recruiter by, and Miami’s Class of 2012 was ranked eighth nationally by spent the last two seasons as a defensive assistant with the Cleveland Browns. He was the linebackers coach at UCLA from 2006-2008 and the Bruins’ defensive coordinator in 2009 and 2010.The Bruins’ defense struggled in 2010, giving up an average of 30 points per game in UCLA’s 4-8 season. Rick Neuheisel fired Bullough after the season, and told reporters he wanted the Bruins to use a 3-4 scheme, not Bullough’s 4-3.Bullough was also the linebackers coach at Western Michigan in 2005, when Shafer was the Broncos’ defensive coordinator. He said his defensive scheme will look a lot like the one Shafer has run for the last four seasons.“It’ll be very familiar. We’re both 4-3. We both have the third-down package, it’s going to look very familiar,” Bullough said. “ … It’ll look the same, but there will be little things in there obviously.”Lester, Syracuse’s new quarterbacks coach, spent the last five seasons as the head coach at Division-III Elmhurst College in Illinois. Lester was the quarterbacks coach at Western Michigan in 2005 and 2006.He said Monday he hasn’t seen much of the quarterbacks already on the roster, but is planning on calling Hackett to get more information about them.One of Lester’s first tasks will be to develop the Orange’s next starting quarterback, with Ryan Nassib graduating after a record-breaking season.“Playing a first-time starter is not easy, but it can be done. It can be done successfully. You see it in the NFL, you see it in college,” Lester said. “I’m excited to get to work with those guys physically and mentally as soon as we get done with recruiting.”Shafer and his new coaches have been on the road recruiting, which will wrap up with signing day Feb. 6. They’ll get to know their players better after that, and perhaps most importantly, learn the Atlantic Coast Conference.“Obviously, going into the ACC, we’re going to have our work cut out for us,” Bullough said, “but we’re going to be ready for that.” Comments Published on January 22, 2013 at 2:00 am Contact Chris: | @chris_iseman Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more
