CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

1.1             BACKGROUND OF STUDY

            Recapitalization is the most recent trend haunting the financial sector of the Nigerian economy. It was introduced in the form of an official order by the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) and was issued to banks to consolidate their capital bases to the tune of a minimum of N 25 billion to be raised by each bank before 31st December 2005 thus causing many banks incapable of raising such fund to merge with other bank (Johnson, P.F.)

          Recapitalization involves a fundamental change in the ownership position of shareholders. Through a large stock offering or merger into another bank or withdrawal of shares to reduce shareholders’ equity, a bank in difficulties is recapitalized. Liquidation represents a final recapitalization of a bank.

          Aside that the minimum capital requirement fixed by CBN seemed very impressive for majority of the banks that had been meddling with quite meager capital bases, the banks also consider time space allowed within which to meet the requirement as too short, though the order was seen to have come at a bad time due to the economic condition, the existing atmosphere of inflation and reduction in general savings and investments. Even the so called first generational banks that had more solid capital base found it difficult to meet the requirement of the recapitalization policy.

1.2              STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM

1.     What are the structural implications of financial distress and bank failure?

2.     What are the causes of financial distress for commercial banks?

           This research work tends to cover mainly the financial distress in commercial banks and how it leads to bank failure. For the purpose of this study, attention will be on First Bank Nigeria Plc, how stable a bank can be to overcome financial distress.

1.6               LIMITATIONS OF THE STUDY

One limitation is the inability of some top managers of banks to reveal or tender data or information useful for the issues of financial distress

   It is important to note here that the system of government inherited from the colonial masters has cropped into the operational set of Nigerian banking system, which has denied the release of vital information needed for this study is also a major limitation.

  The lack of figures to measure specifically the performance of bank is another limitation to this work.
