Yes Bank shares rise 2 pc on decision to seek extension for Rana Kapoor

New Delhi: Shares of Yes Bank rose by nearly 2 per cent Wednesday, a day after the company board decided to seek at least a three-month extension from RBI for its MD and CEO Rana Kapoor beyond January 31, 2019.

The stock gained 1.73 per cent to end at Rs 223.65 on BSE. During the day, it surged 4.41 per cent to Rs 229.55.

On NSE, shares of the company rose by 1.82 per cent to close at Rs 223.70.

In terms of equity volume, 38.26 lakh shares of the company were traded on BSE and over 6 crore shares changed hands on NSE during the day.

Yes Bank shares closed nearly 3 per cent lower Tuesday.

The RBI had last week curtailed the three-year term that the board had sought for Kapoor, also one of the promoters of the bank, to January 31, 2019, and asked the bank to find a replacement.

In a regulatory filing, the bank said Kapoor has been in his position since the inception in 2004 and finding a suitable successor is a "time consuming challenge".
