    AMMB Holdings’s proposed private placement of 300m new shares to increase its capital ratios came as a negative surprise to us. We estimate that the private placement would dilute our projected EPS for AMMB by 4% for FY22F and 8.3% for FY23F. Reiterate Reduce due to the: 1) provision of RM2.83bn for the 1MDB settlement in 4QFY3/21, and 2) EPS dilution from the private placement.
