REUTERS: HDFC Bank Ltd, India’s second-biggest lender by assets, said recently it would raise up to 240 billion Rupees (US$3.75 billion) to fund growth by selling shares to investors, including a preferential issue to its parent HDFC Ltd.


HDFC Bank, the most valuable in the sector with a market capitalisation of more than US$76 billion, said in a statement its board had approved the fundraising plan and shareholders will be asked to vote on the plan on January 19th, the lender added.


As part of the planned fundraising, HDFC Bank will issue up to 85 billion Rupees worth of shares to mortgage lender HDFC Ltd on a preferential basis, while the remainder will be raised via modes including American Depositary Receipts and a share sale in India to institutional investors.

The stock has risen 56 percent this year, compared with a 28 percent gain in the Nifty 50 index. NSEI and a 41.5 percent rise in the banking sector index.
