MEBL Announces Plans to Establish Exchange Company with Rs1bn Paid-up Capital

Exchange Company

Meezan Bank Limited (PSX: MEBL) Board of Directors has approved the establishment of an Exchange Company with an initial paid-up capital of up to Rs1 billion, as revealed in the bank’s PSX filing today.

The board’s decision is contingent on approval/clearance by the State Bank of Pakistan (SBP) and fulfillment of other regulatory compliance prerequisites.

The Bank will own this Exchange Company as a 100% owned subsidiary.

MEBL has disclosed this information as per Sections 96 and 131 of the Securities Act, 2015, and Clause 5.6.1 of the Rule Book of the PSX.

It’s worth noting that the SBP has decided, due to regulatory concerns in the Exchange Companies (ECs), to consolidate and transform various types of ECs into a single category with a well-defined mandate.

Moreover, the central bank mandates prominent banks engaged in foreign exchange business to establish wholly-owned ECs to meet the legitimate foreign exchange needs of the general public.

This development directly responds to the regulatory requirements set by the central bank.
