The Banko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) announced that the Monetary Board, through MB Board Resolution No. 686 dated 26 April 2012, placed the Export and Industry Bank, Inc. (EIB) under receivership on 26 April 2012.

In placing the EIB under receivership, the Monetary Board invoked Section 30 of Republic Act No. 7653 (The New Central Bank Act) on “account of EIB’s insufficient realizable assets to meet its liabilities and its inability to continue in business without involving probable losses to its depositors or creditors.”
