SBI Proposes 49% Stake In YES Bank

(Repoters Today): Soon after Enforcement Directorate (ED) arrested YES Bank founder Rana Kapoor under money laundering charges, there is slight relief from the bank which is seeing long queues of people trying to withdraw their money.

The crisis-hit bank announced that their customers can now withdraw money from other bank ATMs as well.

However, the limit for withdrawal remains at Rs 50,000 as declared by RBI while imposing a moratorium on the bank. Some customers complained of net banking services not working and also credit cards. The State Bank of India (SBI) on Saturday announced it will take up 49 per cent stake in Yes Bank for Rs 2,450 crore and also said that all the deposits and liabilities of the reconstructed bank will continue in the “same manner”. “Yes Bank has 255-crore shares of Rs 2 per share. SBI will be issued 245 crore shares at a price of Rs 10 per share for Rs 2,450 crore. This will be 49 per cent of the share capital of the reconstructed bank,” SBI said in a statement. “SBI shall not reduce its holding below 26 per cent before completion of three years from the date of infusion of the capital,” it added. The board of directors at the reconstructed Yes Bank will comprise of chief executive and managing director, non-executive chairman and non-executive directors.
