Yes Bank plans to raise another Rs. 5,000 crore and has been talking to investment banks for the same. This is in line with Yes Bank’s increased fund raising limit to Rs.15,000 crore from earlier Rs.10,000 crore. Fund could also come from a rights issue or a qualified institutional placement (QIP). The essential idea is to bring new institutional investors into the bank. In March, a clutch of banks led by SBI invested a combined Rs 10,000 crore to keep Yes Bank afloat. SBI now holds 48.2% percent stake in the bank with the majority investment of Rs.6,050 crore. Other investors include ICICI Bank, HDFC, Kotak Mahindra Bank, IDFC First Bank, Bandhan Bank and Federal Bank. This additional fund raising will shore up capital adequacy of Yes Bank, something that was badly needed to enable the bank to start its lending operations once again.
