FEDERAL DEPOSIT INSURANCE CORPORATION

IN RE: Bank of Hawaii, Honolulu, Hawaii

Application to Acquire and Hold Stock in a Foreign Financial Entity

STATEMENT

Pursuant to the provisions of section 18(D of the Federal Deposit Insurance Act and sections 347.4(a) and 303.5(d) of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation's ("FDIC") Rules and Regulations, Bank of Hawaii, Honolulu, Hawaii ("BOH"), a state-chartered nonmember insured bank, has applied for the FDIC's consent to acquire and hold, via its wholly-owned subsidiary Bank of Hawaii International, Inc., all of the issued and outstanding shares of Banque Indosuez Niugini Ltd ("BIN'), a foreign financial entity, which has a wholly-owned subsidiary, Indoniu Finance Company Ltd ("IFC"), both of Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea.

BIN is a commercial bank and its wholly-owned subsidiary, IFC, is a lease finance company. BIN conducts a full range of traditional banking services, including those which are incidental to its international and foreign business, none of which are conducted in the United States.

The Board of Directors ("Board") of the FDIC has fully considered all available facts and information relevant to the application of BOH. Based on the modest level of investment in relation to BOH's capital, BOH's satisfactory condition, and BOH's experience in successfully conducting banking operations on a domestic and international basis, the Board has concluded that the application should be approved, with certain general conditions as set forth in the ORDER. In making its determination, the Board has placed substantial reliance upon representations made by BOH.

THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS
