Corpbank needs to write off almost two thirds of its assets due to major failings in the way it was run, an audit commissioned by the central bank found, making a rescue of the lender increasingly unlikely. The central bank ordered the international audit after Corpbank, Bulgaria's fourth-largest lender, was hit by a run on deposits in June that triggered the country's worst financial crisis since the late 1990s. The audit found Corpbank needed to write off 4.2 billion levs ($2.7 billion) on total assets of 6.7 billion levs, adding that only 13 percent of Corpbank's loans were properly backed by collateral. The majority of the companies to which Corpbank lent money had little or no business activities or employees, and lent the money on to third parties, the audit said.

Corpbank needs to write off almost two thirds of its assets due to major failings in the way it was run, an audit commissioned by the central bank found, making a rescue of the lender increasingly unlikely. The central bank ordered the international audit after Corpbank, Bulgaria's fourth-largest lender, was hit by a run on deposits in June that triggered the country's worst financial crisis since the late 1990s. The audit found Corpbank needed to write off 4.2 billion levs ($2.7 billion) on total assets of 6.7 billion levs, adding that only 13 percent of Corpbank's loans were properly backed by collateral. The majority of the companies to which Corpbank lent money had little or no business activities or employees, and lent the money on to third parties, the audit said.

A woman walks in an OCBC bank office at Sakura tower in Yangon October 1, 2014. Myanmar has granted nine foreign banks, including three Japanese lenders and Australia's ANZ, coveted licences to operate on a limited basis, the government's biggest move to date to bring in much needed foreign capital to a fast growing economy. The core banking units of Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group, Sumitomo Mitsui Financial Group and Mizuho Financial Group all gained licences - underscoring Japan's growing investment and influence in a country that is home to big projects such as the Thilawa economic zone near Yangon. Also making the cut were the Industrial and Commercial Bank of China Ltd, Singapore's Oversea-Chinese Banking Corp and United Overseas Bank, Thailand's Bangkok Bank and Malaysia's biggest lender Malayan Banking Berhard (maybank).
