PDIC raises PhP223.1-M in asset sale for Jan-July
The Philippine Deposit Insurance Corporation (PDIC) generated PhP223.1 million from the sale of 533 closed banks’ properties through six public biddings conducted from January to July of this year, enhancing the chances of creditors of closed banks to recover their funds.
Collectively, the public biddings yielded an aggregate premium of PhP57.9 million over the total minimum disposal price of PhP165.2 million.
In its most recent public bidding alone held on July 31 in Makati City, the sale proceeds amounted to PhP113.4 million involving the bulk sale of 438 residential lots owned by the closed Accord Savings Bank, Inc. These residential lots are located in Green Farm Royale Subdivision, Brgy. Pulong Bunga, Silang, Cavite.
Proceeds from the sale of closed banks’ properties are added to the pool of funds of these banks for distribution to creditors and uninsured depositors in accordance with the rules on concurrence and preference of credits.
The expeditious liquidation of assets is one of the strategic directions of the PDIC as liquidator of closed banks. To help ensure that recoveries from closed banks’ assets are maximized, PDIC sells assets via competitive biddings.
