Cargills Bank Limited announced the divesture of 80.34 percent stake controlling interest in Colombo Trust Finance PLC (CTF) to Dialog Axiata PLC. 


Upon obtaining approval from the Monetary Board of the Central Bank of Sri Lanka the transaction was successfully completed on the 12th of September 2017 through a crossing transaction on the Colombo Stock Exchange (CSE) for a consideration of Rs.1,072 million.


Prabhu Mathavan, Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer of Cargills Bank Limited said “The bank’s investment in the finance company was re evaluated and the board of directors recommended a focused effort and energy on core banking activities and endorsed a total exit from its investment in CTF.”


“The proceeds from the divesture of CTF would support to fast track the bank’s growth momentum while strengthening its balance sheet. The bank is optimistic of capitalizing its strengths in the newly evolving digital sphere and, with the confidence that digitalization is the future of the banking industry, has earmarked several exciting initiatives” he said. 


Mathavan further added, “Cargills Bank is investing to serve a wider spectrum of customers through ‘Fin Tech’ to reach out to the unbanked and underbanked fulfilling its core ethos of bringing financial inclusion to all Sri Lankans.”
