Our Company
Bright Kindle Resources & Investments, Inc. (formerly Bankard, Inc.) (the “Company”) was incorporated in the Philippines on December 4, 1981 as a credit card corporation. On March 21, 1995, the Company listed its shares with the Philippine Stock Exchange, Inc. Prior to December 27, 2013, the Company was a subsidiary of Rizal Commercial Banking Corporation (RCBC). On October 18, 2013, the Board of Directors (BOD) of RCBC approved the sale of its 89.98% collective stake in the Company. In order to consummate the sale, a block sale was made between RCBC and RYM Business Management Corp. (the “Parent Company” or “RYM”) together with other investors. As a result, RYM acquired 81.77% interest in the Company. In view of the change in its ownership and management, the Company has changed the nature of its principal business. In November 2013, the Company’s BOD approved the amendment in the Company’s Articles of Incorporation to change its corporate name to Bright Kindle Resources & Investments, Inc. and primary business purpose to a holding Company. This matter was submitted and approved by the shareholders during the Special Stockholders’ meeting held on December 9, 2013. The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) approved the Company’s Amended Articles of Incorporation on January 30, 2014. Assets and liabilities related to the Company’s credit card servicing operation were transferred to RCBC Bankard Services Corporation (RBSC) and RCBC on December 12, 2013. Effective December 16, 2013, the Company ceased acting as the administrator of RCBC’s credit card business. Consequently, the Company is now engaged in the purchase, exchange, assignment, and holding of investments and any and all properties, including, but not limited to, bonds, debentures, promissory notes, shares of stocks, or other securities without however engaging in the business of an investment company under the Investment Company Act or a finance company or a broker or dealer in securities. The Company’s registered office is located at 16 th Floor, BDO Towers Valero (formerly Citibank Tower), 8741 Paseo de Roxas, Makati City.
