OCBC Indonesia also intends to acquire the remaining 1.00% shares of PTBC from the other shareholders.

The deal, which is subject to regulatory approvals, is expected to close in the second or third quarter of next year.

Additionally, PTBC has complementary capabilities in wealth management and auto joint financing that can be leveraged to broaden OCBC Indonesia’s products and services.
