The bank has been in trouble after its founder and former CEO Rana Kapoor was denied extension by the Reserve Bank of India in 2018 owing to corporate governance issues and under-reporting of bad loans.

In its response to BSE and NSE, Yes Bank said: “The Bank has not received any such communication from RBI or any other the Government or Regulatory authorities or from the SBI and we are unaware of any such decision. The Bank in the usual and ordinary course of its business continues to explore various means of raising capital/funds through issuance of securities to diverse set of investors to meet its business/regulatory requirements, subject to compliance with prescribed procedures and receipt of statutory/ regulatory approvals.”

Yes Bank has been struggling to raise money from markets and investors. Its recent board meeting was inconclusive as they still have not firmed up on who could be the potential investors. It has been close to a year since Ravneet Gill took over as the CEO and they have not yet been able to raise money.

Yes Bank’s net worth is around Rs 250 billion below investment grade book (rated BB and below). Macquarie says total capital needed by Yes Bank would be at least about $2.5 billion to $3 billion over the next 12 to 18 months.  (Agency)
