The current promoter of Himalayan Bank Limited (HBL) has initiated an auction process for 21,86,575 units of shares. This auction is exclusively available to existing promoter shareholders and commenced on the 7th of Jestha, 2080.
The auction specifically targets existing promoters, who have the opportunity to submit their bids within a period of 35 days starting from the publication date of the notice, which is also the 7th of Jestha. Shareholders interested in participating in the auction are required to submit their bids at the central office of the bank, situated in Kamaladi, Kathmandu.
In the event that no bids are received from existing founder shareholders within the designated timeframe, the shares will be subsequently auctioned to the general public. This ensures that if the existing promoters do not partake in the auction, the opportunity to acquire the shares will be extended to a broader audience.
The auction process provides a mechanism for existing promoters of Himalayan Bank Limited to potentially increase their ownership stake in the bank. Additionally, it opens up the possibility for new shareholders, including the general public, to invest in the bank and participate in its growth and development.
