Is Government Planning to exit IDBI Bank

IDBI disinvestment
by Nikita Bhoota 23/06/2021

The department of investment and public asset management (DIPAM) in the finance ministry on Tuesday floated a Request For Proposal (RFP), inviting transaction and legal advisers for strategic disinvestment of IDBI Bank. Once these advisers are appointed, the department would promptly invite expressions of interest (EoIs) for purchase of the stakes on offer and this would likely be by September, as per the media reports. 

How much stake will Government Exit?
As per the plan, the government will exit the bank either by divesting its entire 45.48% stake worth about Rs 19,000 crore at the current market price or a minimum of 26% stake required to transfer management control and promoter Life Insurance Corporation will offer to sell a portion of its 49.24% stake with an intent to surrender management control.

The government diluted its stake in IDBI Bank in January 2019 in favour of LIC, which then became the promoter in the bank with 51% stake. Under a special dispensation, the Insurance Regulatory and Development Authority has allowed LIC to hold 51%, against the norm of 15%. The insurer will, however, have to cut its stake to 15% in due course.

Financial Performance FY21
After a gap of 5 years, the bank was back in the race with a net profit of Rs 1,359 crore for FY21. Following improvement in asset quality, the bank exited the prompt corrective action (PCA) framework on March 10. It can resume corporate lending which was stopped after it came under PCA.

Stock Performance:
IDBI Bank share price has risen 44% to Rs 38.60 as of June 22, 2021 on the BSE, compared lowest closing price in January 2021.

Government Disinvestment Target:
Of the Rs 1.75-lakh-crore disinvestment target for FY22, the government has budgeted Rs 1 lakh crore from disinvestment of government stake in public sector financial institutions and banks such as LIC (IPO) and IDBI Bank strategic sale.
