Private sector lender Yes Bank has sold 2.17 % of the stake in Fortis Healthcare, out of over 17 % that it acquired last month.
Yes Bank said it had sold 1.12 crore shares representing 2.17 % stake of Fortis Healthcare in the open market between February 23 and March 15, 2018.
It had on February 16 acquired 17.31 % stake in Fortis Healthcare following invocation of nearly 9 crore pledged shares last month.
“Yes Bank has acquired 8,97,81,906 equity shares having nominal value of ₹ 10 per share of the company pursuant to invocation of pledge on the said equity shares subsequent to default by promoter group companies in the credit facility provided by the bank,” Fortis Healthcare had said.
On February 15, the Supreme Court lifted its stay on sale of shares of Fortis Healthcare pledged with banks by the promoters Singh brothers (Malvinder Mohan Singh and Shivinder Mohan Singh) before August 31, allowing financial institutions, including Axis Bank and Yes Bank, to sell the pledged shares.
Subsequently, the stake of promoter firm Fortis Healthcare Holdings along with promoters (Singh brothers) and other family entities have come down to 5.87 % from 34.43 % earlier.
Shares of Fortis Healthcare were trading 1.25 % lower at 158.20 apiece on BSE.
