Commercial High Court issues interim order to HNB stopping EGM

Commercial High Court issues interim order to HNB stopping EGM

Friday, 21 October 2016 00:01

The Commercial High Court yesterday issued an Interim Order to Hatton National Bank (HNB) and its key shareholders preventing them from holding an Extraordinary General Meeting (EGM), which was scheduled for next week, until a court decision is made on the bank proceeding with a share issuance of $ 50 million to the Asian Development Bank (ADB).

The interim order was given when the petitioner Stassen Exports appeared before Colombo Commercial High Court Judge Shiran Gunaratne. Nihal Fernando PC along with Attorneys-at-Law Romali Tudawe, Harshula Seneviratne and Rajindra Jayasinghe, instructed by Attorney-at-Law Upendra Gunasekera, appeared on behalf of the petitioner.

The Interim Order, pending the final determination of the application by the respondents, prevents the Extraordinary General Meeting of HNB scheduled for 26 Wednesday 2016 or any time thereafter for the purpose of obtaining the approval of shareholders to issue shares to the Asian Development Bank (ADB) by way of a private placement, in consideration of the proposal made by ADB to make an equity investment in HNB, in any manner whatsoever, according to the determination.

The HNB board in September approved the issuance of shares for $ 50 million to the ADB by way of a private placement, making the development lender a strategic investor.

“The proceeds of the issue of shares by private placement as aforementioned will be utilised for the purpose of strengthening the capital base/balance sheet of the bank and supporting the overall business growth of the bank,” the bank said in a stock exchange filing at the time.

The private placement of up to 9.9% of the shareholding is subject to shareholder and regulatory approval. The shares will be offered at the average price at which the shares were traded during the 30-market-day period preceding the date of the EGM at Rs. 220 if the average price is more than Rs. 220, and Rs. 190 if the average price is less than Rs. 190.

In March HNB entered into an agreement with ADB to raise $ 100 million by way of a seven-year senior debt, HNB said in a press release. It was earmarked as the largest transaction of ADB with a local bank and the raised funds were to have been deployed towards infrastructure development projects, with special emphasis on renewable energy, power and irrigation.
