State-owned Bank Rakyat Indonesia (BRI), the nation’s most profitable lender, announced on Tuesday a plan to distribute Rp 20.6 trillion (US$ 1.5 billion) in dividends to its shareholders.The dividends are equal to 60 percent of the bank’s profits of Rp 34.4 trillion, higher than last year’s dividend payout ratio of 50 percent. This means that the value of the dividend of each share will be Rp 168.1, 27.2 percent higher than last year’s dividend of Rp 132.2 per share.BRI, the biggest state bank by market value, also recorded a 6.1 percent yoy increase in earnings per share (EPS) in 2019 of Rp 279 compared with the 2018 EPS of Rp 263. BRI president director Soenarso said on Tuesday that the government, which holds a 56.75 percent stake in BRI, would receive a total of Rp 11.7 trillion of the dividend.“The remaining 40 percent of our profits will be used as retained earnings,” he said during a press briefing after the annual general shareholders’ meeting in Jakarta.BRI’s profits of Rp 34.4 trillion were the lowest in two years as lending growth slowed and the bank recorded a significant rise in bad loans last year, against the backdrop of the global and domestic economic slowdown.Lending grew 8.44 percent yoy in 2019 to Rp 908.88 trillion versus 14 percent yoy in 2018. Net interest income grew 5.2 percent to Rp 81.7 trillion in 2019, slower than the 6.35 percent in 2018. Bad loans as indicated by the non-performing loans (NPL) ratio rose to 2.8 percent last year from 2.27 percent in 2018.

Chaniago.It also appointed University of Indonesia (UI) rector and renowned economist Ari Kuncoro as the bank’s deputy president commissioner, who will also act as an independent commissioner, replacing Wahyu Kuncoro.The bank also made changes to its board of directors as it appointed Wisto Prihadi as the bank’s compliance director. The position was previously held by Azizatun Azhimah.SOE Minister Erick Thohir said last week that the ministry would shake up three state banks during their respective shareholders’ meetings that will take place this week, namely BRI, Bank Mandiri and Bank Negara Indonesia (BNI).”It’s normal as long as we can see someone who has great expertise,” Erick said, brushing off concerns about an “overhaul” of state enterprises.Bank Mandiri’s shareholders’ meeting will take place today (Wednesday) and BNI’s on Thursday.Read also: Erick Thohir to shake up executives at state lendersShares in BRI, traded under the code BBRI, closed at Rp 4,400 apiece on Tuesday, down 1.57 percent from the previous trading day. The stocks have risen 12.5 percent in the past year, easily outperforming the broader benchmark Jakarta Composite Index’s (JCI) 9 percent drop.Topics :

Trail Blazers, Grizzlies advance to NBA play-in game; Suns, Spurs see playoff dreams dashed LOS ANGELES — Eric Bledsoe had a buoyant stride in the hallways of Staples Center, looking like he had a great deal lifted from his shoulders.Another great deal is headed to his bank account.The former Clipper will be in Milwaukee for four more seasons after this one, after signing a $70 million extension on Friday. Bucks coach Mike Budenholzer said he usually likes going to work every day with Bledsoe – but even for a typically energized player, Friday might have been a little more bouncy.“He’s mostly like that every day,” he said. “He might’ve had a couple extra smiles in there.” Trail Blazers beat Grizzlies in play-in, earn first-round series with the Lakers Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error “Just look at every single year how he’s been able to evolve as a player, obviously his physique has evolved, his mental approach has evolved and the franchise has evolved from his first year,” he said. “It is all going in the right direction. I think it’s greatly appreciated to see someone that gives their all to the game and I think when you do that, the game automatically gives back to you.”James himself had one of his best seasons in the sixth year of his career, winning the first of his four NBA MVP awards (28.4 ppg, 7.6 rpg, 7.2 apg) and leading the Cavaliers to 66 regular-season wins.Many speculate that Antetokounmpo is poised to claim the unofficial title as the league’s best player, which James has held for much of his career. James implied that if the Greek Freak has the same mindset he had at the same age, that day might soon be at hand.“I went to the Finals at 22, so I was thinking about being the best ever,” James said. “But I was thinking about how can I elevate this franchise, take it places that they hadn’t seen before. … But I wanted to continue to elevate that franchise every single day with not only my play on the floor but also my leadership off the floor and how I conducted myself as a young man.” Lakers practice early hoping to answer all questions LeBron James, to whom Antetokounmpo is often compared, said he’s been impressed by how the young Bucks star has raised his game to meet the moment.Related Articles Lakers, Clippers schedules set for first round of NBA playoffs How athletes protesting the national anthem has evolved over 17 years AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREUCLA alum Kenny Clark signs four-year contract extension with PackersHow does a dynasty begin? Does it start with an imagination-sparking playoff run? Raising a championship trophy?It might just start on a Friday in March, when Milwaukee made a handful of inspired moves: Besides re-signing Bledsoe (15.7 ppg, 5.5 apg, 4.6 rpg), the Bucks also reportedly will sign Pau Gasol, the 38-year-old center who was bought out by the San Antonio Spurs earlier in the day. All signs point to Milwaukee trying to secure the future, both this season and beyond, to build something special around franchise star Giannis Antetokounmpo.At 24, the Greek Freak is the apparent front-runner to win MVP this season, and his numbers (27 ppg, 12.6 rpg, 5.9 apg) as well as Milwaukee’s NBA-best record entering Friday night, justify that case. While Lakers coach Luke Walton said he’s seen more of James Harden, who is also in the running to go back-to-back for the award, Antetokounmpo’s unique abilities at 6-foot-11 jumped off the screen as he studied film on Thursday.“He plays the right way,” Walton said. “He can get to the rim and get his own shot anytime he wants, and he has the green light to do that. And he still makes the appropriate passes when they’re available. So I really respect that about his game.”Fueled by an innovative system installed by Budenholzer in his first season, the Bucks have both the best offensive rating (113.3) and the best defensive rating (104.0) in the league. They’ve gotten 3-point shooting not only from first-time All-Star Khris Middleton but from the frontcourt in former Lakers center Brook Lopez (36 percent from deep).
