Yes Bank posted a 33.3% growth in net profit at Rs235 crore for the second quarter on the back of a healthy growth in its non-interest income
Private sector lender Yes Bank posted a 33.3% growth in net profit at Rs235 crore for the second quarter on the back of a healthy growth in its non-interest income, which offset a marginal dip in net interest margin. The Mumbai-headquartered bank's net profit for the July-September of last fiscal was Rs176.3 crore. The bank's non-interest income grew 63.4% to Rs214 crore while the more important net interest income component was up 23.1% to Rs385.6 crore.
Deputy chief financial officer Jaideep Iyer said the bank closed good deals on its debt capital markets practice and overall financial advisory fees in the reporting quarter which helped growth, contributing to the spike in the non-interest income during the quarter. However, income from the distribution vertical was "flat and stable", he said without giving absolute numbers. The net interest margin dipped to 2.9% during the quarter from the 3% observed in the year ago period while sequentially, it showed an improvement of 10 basis points, he said.
Its net non-performing assets ratio improved to 0.04% as on 30 September 2011.
However, Iyer said in the next couple of months, the bank will launch auto and commercial vehicle finance products to drive up its retail segment, which accounts for only 14.9% of the book.
Additionally, it will also be introducing home loans as an add-on for customers to complete its product bouquet but will not acquire assets aggressively, he said.
Overall capital adequacy stood at 16% as on 30 September 2011 but the core tier-I capital slipped to 9.4%. However, the bank, which already has an enabling resolution from shareholders to raise capital, will not be raising any capital this fiscal because of poor market conditions, Iyer said.
But it is looking to raise Rs300 crore through an issue for its tier-II capital needs this quarter, he said.
In the early afternoon, Yes Bank was trading at around Rs281.70 per share on the Bombay Stock Exchange, 1.09% down from the previous close.
