Commenting on the results and financial performance, Mr. Prashant Kumar, MD & CEO, YES BANK said, “Over the last three years, the Bank has significantly progressed on several strategic objectives such as strengthening of Governance and Compliance Standards, bolstering the Balance Sheet through granularity, addressing the asset quality concerns, building up a strong liability franchise and expanding the customer base.

At the same time, with continuous focus on retail, we have continued to expand our footprints with new Branches, increased the employee headcount and stepped-up our investments in technology. Our Retail franchise has now reached a critical scale and is poised for profitable growth. With the current momentum of accelerated growth, the efficiency gains and operating leverage will naturally drive the Bank’s profitability upwards.

In addition to this, in order to further accelerate the profitability expansion, the Bank will be making strategic interventions in the form of calibrated yield enhancement, higher focus on growth in CA and improvement in cross-sell / fee growth on the expanded customer base. Moreover, the significant recoveries and upgrades during the year and particularly Q4 have been utilized for accelerated provisioning to step-up PCR and normalize credit costs over the near term.
