Malaysian lender CIMB Group Holdings Bhd (1023.KU) Tuesday said it has signed an agreement to buy a 60% stake in privately held Bank of Commerce for MYR881 million ($288.4 million) in cash, a deal that will give the Malaysian bank a foothold in the fast-growing Philippine market.

It will buy the stake from San Miguel Corp. (SMC.PH), a diversified Philippine conglomerate and other Bank of Commerce shareholders, CIMB, Malaysia' second largest lender by asset size, said in a statement.

The stake purchase price represents PHP181.25 for every share held in Bank of Commerce, CIMB said.

"As an Asean universal bank, this extension into the Philippines is a very natural one. I believe we are entering this market at the right time, with the right deal and right partner," CIMB Group Chief Executive Nazir Razak said in the statement.
