The message by the CEO of Lanka Credit and Business Finance Limited.
Mr. K.G. Leelananda
CEO/Executive Director, Lanka Credit and Business Finance Limited
Lanka Credit and Business Finance Limited (“LCBF”) is a well-rooted Licensed Finance Company regulated by Central Bank of Sri Lanka. We initiated our operations with a strong presence in the southern province where we opened our first branch in the iconic Galle town and for the past three years of our existence, we've been rapidly expanding our network.
Followed by a strong revival of a distressed NBFI company in 2018, we were recognized as Sri Lanka's Emerging Finance Company in the year after. In addition, at the Global Economics in the United Kingdom in 2021, we received the coveted award for the Fastest Growing Non-Banking Financial Firm in Sri Lanka.
According to the directives of the Central Bank of Sri Lanka, we are required to list our company on Colombo Stock Exchange. We embarked on this journey to list our company by initiating another important chapter in the successful growth story of LCBF.
We will be listing the shares of LCBF through an offer for subscription of up to 75,000,000 ordinary voting shares, in the first instance and a further 50,000,000 ordinary voting shares at the option of the Board of Directors at Rs. 4/- per share to be listed on the Colombo Stock Exchange.
I kindly invite you to subscribe to our IPO and be a part of our success story while achieving your own financial goals and targets through us.
The message from Managers to the Offer
NDB Investment Bank is proud to advise and guide Lanka Credit and Business Finance Limited ("LCBF") on its Initial Public Offering (IPO) and listing on the Colombo Stock Exchange as the Sole Financial Advisors and Manager s to the Issue.
NDBIB has been part of LCBF's journey since 2018 by acting as the Financial Advisor for Lanka Credit and Business Limited (LCBL) on its acquisition of a distressed finance company which was later revived as LCBF. Since its inception, LCBF has shown exponential growth in multiple dimensions to date and with this IPO would complete the Central Bank's requirements made at the time of acquisition. This historic milestone sets a benchmark as a case study for the revival of many distressed finance companies in Sri Lanka.
We, at NDBIB, wish LCBF on its equity raising via the IPO; another progressive step in the capital markets of Sri Lanka, and we believe that this landmark equity offering will pave the way for rapid expansion and empower LCBF to serve its clientele, diversified communities, and broader society in a distinct way that addresses the interests of its stakeholders and the nation at large.
