(QE, QNBFS Research)  DHBK seeks nod for its Tier 1 capital notes worth QR2bn – Doha Bank’s (DHBK) board of directors has recommended to the extraordinary general assembly of shareholders to approve the issuance of Tier 1 capital notes amounting to QR2bn. The issuer will either be Doha Bank or a special purpose vehicle wholly owned by the Qatari lender as deemed appropriate by its management. Doha Bank said the issue date will be on or before March 30, 2014 and will be perpetual, but callable only after six years. DHBK’s Chairman Sheikh Fahad bin Mohamed bin Jabor al-Thani said the proposed Tier 1 Capital Notes will enhance the bank’s prospects in achieving its strategic goals and will strengthen its lending capacity in view of the anticipated boom in the Qatari economy in the coming years. In our view, the bond will help improve the Tier I ratio of the bank, and the bank is unlikely to go ahead with the previously announced international GDR option. Furthermore, we expect other medium sized banks to announce their plans of Tier I bonds over the coming months.

The World Bank feels the massive, investment-heavy stimulus program supported by credit expansion had run its course in China, and its policymakers must focus on containing the rapid growth of credit and tighten financial supervision. Meanwhile, the bank expects developing East Asia to expand by 7.1% this year and by 7.2% in 2014, down from its April estimate of 7.8% and 7.6% respectively.
