NBU has not received documents to agree acquisition of significant stake in Prominvestbank
The National Bank of Ukraine (NBU) has not yet received a package of documents to agree on the acquisition of significant participation in Prominvestbank (Kyiv), the press service of the NBU has told Interfax-Ukraine.
The regulator's press service said in April 2017 two citizens of Ukraine applied for the approval of acquisition of direct significant participation in Prominvestbank. On July 28, 2017 the committee on supervision and regulation of banks' activities, oversight of payment systems at the National Bank of Ukraine decided to refuse Maksym Mykytas and Pavlo Fuks the acquisition of a significant stake in Prominvestbank.
"We draw attention to the fact that the acquisition of significant participation in the bank without the approval of the National Bank is not allowed. The central bank has the right to apply measures of influence to persons who directly or indirectly purchased significant participation in the bank without agreement with the regulator, namely: impose a fine of up to 10% of the nominal value of the acquired shares of the bank and/or temporarily prohibit voting rights. In addition, the NBU has the right to apply measures of influence to the bank in case if the ownership structure of the bank becomes non-transparent as a result of such an uncoordinated acquisition. In particular, the bank could be declared problematic," the press service noted.
As reported, the AMC is mulling allowing MP Mykytas purchase of a 25% stake in Prominvestbank.
