In this regard, it may be noted that the bank's overall capital adequacy ratio is comfortably above regulatory requirements and all efforts are being made to financially strengthen the bank even further."

"We wish to inform you that Yes Bank has, pursuant to invocation of pledge of shares, acquired 60,00,000 equity shares having nominal value of Rs 10 per share, constituting approximately 10.25 percent of the post-issue paid-up share capital of a listed company, namely, SICAL Logistics Limited," Yes Bank said in a BSE filing.
