According to Pharos, a lot of banks would need capital increase with the exception of Commerical International Bank (CIB) and QNB Al Ahli.
However some banks have their total equity above the minimum so we could see them use their retained earnings to beef up paid in capital.
Others, whose equity is below the required minimum, could opt for mergers, acquisitions or rights issue, such as EG Bank and Suez Canal Bank.
Furthermore, the report indicates that if the law is approved, the CBE may give banks up to three years to comply and by that time, all banks under our coverage that fall below the require minimum would have already built an adequate capital base from profit retention, except for Suez Canal Bank.
The report indicate that CIB has a paid capital of EGP 14.585bn, and total equity of EGP 38.637, while QNB Al Ahli has a paid capital of EGP 9.795bn, and total equity of EGP 28.805bn, however it could receive support from Qatar National Bank.
