Yes Bank’s Roadmap to Recovery

Yes Bank is aiming to expand its loan book and acquire smaller rivals to revive its business, its chief executive said.

The expansion plan of Yes Bank comes after it raised US$1.1 bn last week by selling up to a 10% stake to Carlyle Group and Advent International.

The fundraising marked a rare vote of confidence in Yes Bank, which had to be taken over by the central bank in March 2020 after months of deterioration in its financials and allegations of mismanagement.

Yes Bank is looking to increase its loan book by 15% in the fiscal year ending March 2023 as it sharpens its focus on mortgages, vehicle loans and small and mid-sized business loans, said CEO Prashant Kumar.

The bank may also look at acquisitions, tapping into the fresh capital raised.

Note that Yes Bank share price crashed from its all-time high of Rs 393 in August 2018 to under Rs 11 over the next two years.

The story is a classic example of how a popular stock has turned into a penny stock.

With the latest developments, the downside risk from here seems limited. The upside opportunity to become a multibagger stock for next 10 years could be substantial.
