The plunge in the stock comes even as Yes Bank is reeling under extreme pressure due to exposure to stressed assets. Last week, Yes Capital, led by promoter Rana  Kapoor sold 1.8% shareholding in the Bank. The firm noted that the proceeds will be utilized to prepay balance outstanding Non-Convertible Debentures (NCDs) of YCPL subscribed by various schemes of Franklin Templeton Asset Management. The stressed assets as a percentage of FY19 book value stand at 54% in Yes Bank.

On Thursday, Morgan Credits (MCPL), the promoter firm of Yes Bank, sold Rs 337 crore worth of shares of the lender in a bulk deal. The shares were sold to prepay a certain part of its outstanding dues to Reliance Nippon Life AMC (RNam). The sale of shares intensified the selling pressure on Yes Bank. Rana Kapoor said in a statement: “With the sole intention of reducing debt of the promoter holding company MCPL, owned by my three daughters, it was decided to bring down our family ownership in YES Bank to 7.4%.”
