UPDATE: Cbank revokes licenses from small Samara, Moscow banks

(Adds details in last paragraph)

MOSCOW, Mar 29 (PRIME) -- The Russian central bank has revoked banking licenses from Samara-based ActiveCapital Bank (AC Bank), ranked 117th by assets as of March 1, and Moscow-based LightBank, ranked 425th, the regulator said on Thursday.

AC Bank did not comply with federal banking regulations and the central bankТs regulatory acts, including aimed at prevention of money laundering and terrorism financing, and posed a real threat to interests of creditors and depositors.

In March, AC Bank made a number of transactions aimed at withdrawal of a significant part of assets, which sharply worsened the bankТs financial state and led to a major deficit of liquidity and inability to timely fulfill obligations to clients, the regulator said. The bankТs owners and managers did not take efficient measures to normalize its operations.

LightBank used a highly risky business model connected with lending to individual clients and failed to properly estimate the quality of its loan portfolio. The proper evaluation of lending risks uncovered a significant decrease in shareholdersТ equity of the bank and grounds to take measures to avoid bankruptcy, which created a real threat to interests of creditors and depositors. The bankТs owners and managers failed to take efficient measures to normalize its operations.

Both banks are members of the deposit insurance system, which means that each depositor may receive up to 1.4 million rubles in compensation. Payments to the depositors will start no later than on April 12, the Deposit Insurance Agency (DIA) said.
