THE Philippine Deposit Insurance Corporation (PDIC) generated a total of Php 14.2 million from the sale of 31 closed banks’ properties at its public bidding held last May 24, 2018 in Cabanatuan City, Nueva Ecija. The bidding yielded an aggregate premium of Php 1.4 million against the aggregate minimum disposal price of Php 12.8 million. Sold assets consisted of 27 residential lots, three residential lots with improvement and a commercial lot with improvement located in Bataan, Bulacan, Nueva Ecija, and Pangasinan.
Proceeds from the sale of closed banks’ properties are added to the pool of liquid assets of these banks for distribution to creditors and uninsured depositors in accordance with the rules on concurrence and preference of credits.
The expeditious liquidation of assets is one of the strategic directions of PDIC as liquidator of closed banks. To help ensure that recoveries from closed banks’ assets are maximized, PDIC sells assets via competitive biddings and auctions.
Unsold assets from public biddings may be acquired by interested parties via negotiated sale. Interested buyers are encouraged to visit the PDIC website at www.pdic.gov.ph and click the Assets for Disposal section for information on available inventory of assets for sale. Prospective buyers may also communicate with the PDIC Public Assistance Department at (02) 841-4630 to 31 or at e-mail address firstname.lastname@example.org.
