The primary markets have been dry for the last four months due to the economic lockdown following the COVID-19 pandemic. Even as the economy is trying to recover from the lag effect of the pandemic, the capital market activity has already started. One such important issue is the Follow-on Public Offer (FPO) of Yes Bank that opens on 15th July and will remain open till 17th July.

What is follow-on public offer (FPO)?

An FPO is like an IPO, the only difference being that an FPO is by an existing listed company. An IPO is an initial public offer and is used to raise money from the capital markets as well as to list the stock. In the case of an existing listed stock like Yes Bank, the follow-on public offer route is used to raise fresh funds.

What are the highlights of the Yes Bank FPO?

The Yes Bank FPO opens on 15 July and closes on 17 July. Here are some of the key points you need to know about the Yes Bank IPO.

FPO shares listing

Jul 27, 2020

Shares of Yes Bank FPO will be listed on the BSE and the NSE. The FPO intends to raise nearly Rs.15,000 crore to shore up its Tier-1 capital and the number of shares will be based on the final price discovered in the FPO.

The FPO issue will be lead managed by 8 book runners; Axis Bank, BOFA Merrill, Citigroup, HSBC Securities, ICICI Securities, Kotak Mahindra Capital, SBI Capital Markets and Yes Bank. KFIN Technologies (formerly Karvy Computershare Ltd.) will be the registrar to the FPO.

Why is Yes Bank coming out with an FPO?

Yes Bank, it may be recollected, had been put under moratorium in early March 2020 by the RBI due to solvency concerns. However, the RBI intervened and syndicated a rescue of Yes Bank led by SBI along with a consortium of large Indian banks. Currently SBI owns close to 50% of Yes Bank. Out of the FPO issue, SBI also proposes to invest Rs.1760 crore in the offer.

Yes Bank FPO will be raising the funds for 3 reasons. Firstly, the bank needs to shore up its Tier-1 Capital urgently. Secondly, Yes Bank, like most of the other Indian banks, expects the gross NPAs to go up once the EMI moratorium is lifted in August 2020. Lastly, Yes Bank also needs the FPO to create a capital buffer so that it can start building its loan book to participate in the pick-up in the credit cycle.

Understanding the financials of Yes Bank

On a YOY basis, Yes Bank has witnessed a contraction in its assets and revenues due to the crisis that it had to face in March this year. That has also resulted in the bank booking huge losses in FY20. However, now Yes Bank has a major shareholder like SBI, which should give the much needed comfort and stability to the bank.





Total Assets

Rs.257,832 crore

Rs.380,860 crore

Rs.312,450 crore

Total Revenues

Rs.10,335 crore

Rs.14,488 crore

Rs.13,032 crore

Net Profits

Rs.(-16,433) crore

Rs.1,709 crore

Rs.4,233 crore

The challenge for the bank is recoup its business position in the coming quarters, with the major consolation being the unstinted backing of SBI.

How to apply for Yes Bank FPO?

It is always advisable to consult with your broker about the fitment of the FPO to your financial needs.

Why Should You Not Break Your Fixed Deposit?

Fixed deposits are the safest option to save money. The premature withdrawal of a fixed deposit means an early debit of your investment or savings before the maturity period. There are certain reasons why to not break FD before maturity as they lead to calamities like penalties, taxes, and lower rates of interest depending upon the conditions laid by the bank.
