The divergence and gap between banks are quite clear when the charter capital of the leading banks has far exceeded the figure of VND 30,000 billion, in some small banks, the charter capital is only around the legal capital level. These include PGBank (3,000 billion), Saigonbank (3,080 billion), VietCapital Bank (3,171 billion), Kienlongbank (3,236 billion), or Viet A Bank (3,499 billion)...
In 2020, although most banks have the goal of raising capital, according to updated data from the consolidated financial statements for the first quarter of 2020, only 3 banks surveyed adjusted to increase charter capital, including SHB, LienVietPostBank, and MBBank.

Earlier, at the end of January this year, MBBank was also approved by the State Bank to increase its charter capital from VND 23,727 billion to roughly VND 24,500 billion at the request of this bank.
With positive business results in 2019, at the beginning of this year, Viet A Bank was approved by the SBV to increase its charter capital from VND 3,098 billion to nearly VND 5,005 billion in the form of issuing about 150.5 million shares. east exists. The purpose of increasing the capital of Viet A Bank is to meet Basel II standards, accelerate investment in information technology, improve financial capacity to grow scale. In addition, the SBV also approved to increase the charter capital for Nam A Bank from VND 3,890 billion to VND 5,000 billion through three options: Offering to existing shareholders more than 43.9 million shares (accounting for 13, 1% of current charter capital), private offering of 50.3 million shares (15%) and issuing 16.76 million shares (5%) under the employee selection program.
In 2020, NCB also plans to increase its chartered capital by VND 3,000 billion to over VND 7,101 billion, equivalent to an increase of more than 73%. The bank expects to issue 10 million shares to officials and staff and 290 million shares to existing shareholders in the first quarter at VND 10,000 / share.
Meanwhile, at the Annual General Meeting of Shareholders 2020 held on May 23, the representative of VietinBank's leadership proposed a plan to pay cash dividends in 2019 at a rate of 0%, which is to hold return all profits or implement a stock dividend plan to increase equity, meeting business development requirements.
TPBank at the general meeting of shareholders on May 27 also approved the plan to increase capital by 20% to VND 10,200 billion.
Thus, with the plan to issue shares of some banks to raise capital in the coming time, it is expected that the new chart of chartered capital by the end of 2020 will have many changes compared to the present.
