Acquisition Plan of Danamon’s Shares by MUFG

Jakarta, 26 December 2017 - Further to its announcement on 9 November 2017, PT Bank Danamon Indonesia Tbk (“Danamon”) has been informed on 26 December 2017 by its majority shareholder Asia Financial (Indonesia) Pte. Ltd. (“AFI”), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Fullerton Financial Holdings Pte. Ltd. (“FFH”), that The Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ, Ltd. (“MUFG”), the commercial banking entity of Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group, Inc., has entered into conditional share purchase agreements with AFI and other affiliated entities who hold in aggregate 73.8% of the total issued shares of Danamon.

The investment will be executed via a three-step process.

MUFG will initially acquire 19.9% of the total issued shares of Danamon (“Step 1”), based on a price of IDR8323/share. The price for Step 1 was based on a 3Q2017 price-to-book ratio of two, with certain adjustments applied.

Subsequent to the completion of Step 1, MUFG will acquire an additional 20.1% of the total issued shares of Danamon, subject to obtaining regulatory and other relevant approvals (“Step 2”). 

Upon completion of Step 2, MUFG intends to seek the necessary approvals to increase their interest in Danamon beyond 40% of the total issued shares of Danamon (“Step 3”), and this will provide an opportunity for all other existing shareholders of Danamon to either remain as shareholders or receive cash from MUFG.

With the closing of Step 3, MUFG’s final stake in Danamon is expected to be over 73.8% of the total issued shares of Danamon.

The prices for Danamon’s shares in Step 2 and Step 3 will be based on a similar approach as Step 1. There is no certainty whether the prices for Danamon’s shares in Step 2 and Step 3 will be higher, lower or the same as the steps before it. These prices will be disclosed at the appropriate times.

AFI will still remain a significant shareholder through the course of this process, and will continue to be supportive as a shareholder. 

MUFG is one of the world’s largest financial groups and its investment in Danamon will allow Danamon to tap on the financial strength, expertise and network of MUFG to facilitate its growth. 

Please refer to the following announcements for more information on the proposed transaction.

As one of the largest banks in Indonesia, Danamon’s focus is on delivering long term value to all its stakeholders and shareholders. During this period, Danamon remains committed to its strategy and business operations will continue as usual. 

As the proposed transaction is subject to regulatory and shareholders’ approvals and has closing conditions customary for a transaction of this nature, all parties are advised to exercise caution when trading their shares.
