DETERMINATION OF FINANCIAL CAPACITY TO MAKE CAPITAL CONTRIBUTION TO THE ESTABLISHMENT OF A COMMERCIAL BANK FOR AN ORGANIZATION WHICH IS NOT A CREDIT INSTITUTION
(Issued in conjunction with the Circular No. 40/2011/TT-NHNN)

SOCIALIST REPUBLIC OF VIETNAM
Independence – Freedom – Happiness
-----------------------------

DETERMINATION OF FINANCIAL CAPACITY

To: The State Bank of Vietnam

Method of determining the financial capacity for making capital contribution to the establishment of a commercial bank of an organization which is not a credit institution

A- Formula for the financial capacity to make capital contribution to commercial bank of a shareholder which is not a credit institution:

1.1. General formula:

1.2. Specific formula

A = E – LI (1) and

LI = LA – LD (2) In which:

+ A: Financial capacity to make capital contribution to the establishment of commercial bank of the organization

+ E: Equity

+ LI: Long-term investment financed by equity

+ LD: Long-term debt used to invest in Long-term assets

+ LA: Long-term assets

* If A >= The capital contributed to the commercial bank as committed by the organization, the organization has sufficient financial capacity in capital contribution to the establishment of the commercial bank.

* If A < the="" capital="" contributed="" to="" the="" commercial="" bank="" as="" committed="" by="" the="" organization,="" the="" organization="" does="" not="" has="" sufficient="" financial="" capacity="" in="" capital="" contribution="" to="" the="" commercial="">

B- Example:

In accordance with the Project, Company X shall contribute VND 100 billion to establish commercial bank Y. The analysis of the capital source for Company X to contribute capital to the establishment of Commercial bank Y basing on the balance sheet as of 31/7/2007 as follows:

Total

2,623.32

Apply the formula (1) and (2) to determine the financial capacity of Company X in contributing capital to the establishment of commercial bank Y, we have:

Long-term investment financed by Equity (LI)

Equity (E)

Long-term assets (LA)

1,530.90 billion VND

Equity

1,900 billion VND

Long-term debt invested in Long-term assets (LD)*

147.70 billion VND

 

 

LI = LA-LD

1,383.2 billion VND

E

1,900 billion VND

A = E-LI

 

 

516.8 billion VND

Comparing A (516,8 billion VND) with the capital contributed to commercial bank Y as committed by Company X (100 billion VND), it can be seen that Company X has sufficient financial capacity to contribute capital to the establishment of Commercial bank Y (516,8 billion VND > 100 billion VND).

Note:

* If the Notes to financial statements of the organization has no clear notes to the item long term Liabilities used for investment in long term assets (fixed assets, long-term financial investment…), it is necessary to ask a written note to that item.
