S.Korea says to guide banks to retain more profits

December 10, 2009

    SEOUL, Dec 10 (Reuters) – The South Korean government will guide local banks to retain more profits next year, instead of paying dividends to shareholders, to help bolster their capital.
   “In order to prepare for a possible increase in bad loans and to undertake swift restructuring, (banks) need to replenish their capital to a substantial extent,” the government said on Thursday in a joint statement from the economy ministry.
   The government will also come up with measures to control banks’ loan-to-deposit ratio to stabilise their funding structure.
