Development Credit Bank (DCB) has raised about Rs 94 crore Tier I capital through a Qualified Institutions Placement issue.
In a press release issued to the BSE, the bank said that its board of directors has also approved a preferential allotment of Rs 100 crore. Post the preferential allotment, the bank’s Tier I capital would increase by approximately Rs 98.75 crore.
As a result of the QIP and preferential issue, the promoters’ shareholding in DCB Bank would come to down to around 19.2 from 23.06 per cent as on end-December 2011.
As on end-December, the bank’s Capital Adequacy Ratio was 13 per cent (of which Tier I was 11.15 per cent). This does not consider the impact of QIP, preferential allotment or the year-to-date profit after tax for > the nine months ended on that date, the release said.
Mr Murali Natarajan, Managing Director and CEO, said the capital raised would be used for executing the growth plans.
