On Wednesday, The shares of Yes Bank Limited jumped by 4.3% till 11.30 am and were trading at Rs 14.30. The stock has added approximately 4% in a week. Within the span of a month, the stock has scaled by more than 11%.
Yes Bank Limited is a private sector bank engaged in providing banking services, including corporate and institutional banking, financial markets, investment banking, corporate finance, branch banking, business and transaction banking, and wealth management.
From 2004 to 2015, Yes Bank was considered one of India’s Buzziest banks. This was mainly because of the easy accessibility of loans from the bank. Soon it became the fifth-largest private sector lender.
The problem arose when the sectors to which yes bank extended credit, which included Non-Banking Financial Companies, real estate firms, and the construction sector, went under a crisis.
The debtors failed to repay the amount which resulted in an increase in the Non-Performing Assets (NPAs) of the bank. That is when things started going downhill for the bank. The stock price plummeted from Rs 275 in April 2019 to Rs 47 by the end of December which is a drop of more than 95%.
But there seems to be a ray of hope for the bank after all. In the past year, the bank has made a significant reconstruction in its operations. In addition, a term sheet has been signed for the sale of an identified pool of stressed assets to the ARC.
The financials of the company are also improving. In the first quarter of FY22, The total revenue earned by the lender was Rs 5134 Crores which is an increase of 14% year on year. It also reported a 50% increase in its net profit to Rs 311 Crores up from Rs 207 Crores in the year-ago period.
Their asset quality saw an improvement in the first quarter as their Gross NPA ratio of Yes Bank is at 13.40 per cent in Q1FY23 which stood at 15.6 per cent in Q1FY22.
With all the improvements in its financials, the bank seems to be coming back on track and might have the potential to become a multibagger and climb back to the price levels in which it used to trade a few years ago.
