Indonesia’s regional development bank, Bank DKI, is said to be targeting an initial public offering (IPO) to raise anywhere between $150 million and $200 million on the local bourses, Bloomberg reported on Friday.
The lender is expected to go public as soon as this year. Currently, they are working with PT BCA Sekuritas and PT CIMB Niaga Sekuritas Indonesia on the potential listing as well as PT Mirae Asset Sekuritas Indonesia and PT Sucor Sekuritas as advisors on the share sale.
Governor of DKI Jakarta Anies Baswedan has been pushing Bank DKI for an IPO since 2019. However, president director of Bank DKI Fidri Arnaldy said the lender is waiting for the right time to hold an IPO, as reported by local media.
