Korea Development Bank, South Korea’s largest state-owned lender, is considering bidding for a stake in Siam City Bank Pcl of Thailand, a person familiar with the matter said.

Korea Development Bank Chief Executive Officer Min Euoo Sung is in Thailand for meetings with relevant officials, the person said, declining to be identified because the talks are preliminary. Local newspaper Chosun Ilbo earlier reported the company’s interest in Thailand’s seventh-biggest lender.

Min, also chairman of parent KDB Financial Group Inc., said in a Nov. 16 interview he plans to buy at least two lenders in Asia this year, without naming potential targets or countries. The executive has said he wants to acquire commercial banks to build KDB’s deposits before an initial public offering scheduled for next year.
