Sealed bids will be accepted by the PDIC Real and Other Properties Acquired (ROPA) Disposal Committee from direct buyers only between 9 a.m. and 1:45 p.. at the venue. Bids will be opened at 2 p.m.

Bidders are advised to physically inspect the properties they are interested to buy, examine and verify the titles and other evidence of ownership, and determine any unpaid taxes, fees, charges and/or expenses before submitting their bids. Bidders are likewise required to bring proper identification documents (ID) with photo and to register at least one hour prior to the deadline for submission of bids.
PDIC said it reserves the right to withdraw without prior notice any or all of the properties offered for sale any time before the deadline for submission of bids.
PDIC, as liquidator of closed banks, holds various asset disposal initiatives such as biddings, auctions and negotiated sale. Proceeds from the sale of closed banks’ properties are added to the pool of liquid assets of these banks for distribution to uninsured depositors and other creditors in accordance with the rules on concurrence and preference of credits.
The disposal of these assets increases the chances of recovery of uninsured depositors and creditors of their trapped funds. (PR)
