Commenting on the results and financial performance, Prashant Kumar, Managing Director & CEO, YES BANK said, “Over the last few quarters, we have remained focused on executing our profitability improvement roadmap by leveraging our core and key business levers of 

1) retail asset mix optimisation, 

2) our SME and Mid-Market strong value proposition,

3) fully exploiting our Branches as the key fulcrum of our Business, and 

4) leveraging our Digital and Transaction Banking capabilities and partnerships and, lastly 5) fully sweating our Branches as the fulcrum of the business to drive higher cross sell and lower our costs going forward. This is driven alongside a focused Priority Sector Lending (PSL) strategy. 

The early progress of the above has started to reflect through a number of underlying business vectors, which we have reported this quarter. Aside that, Q3FY24 overall was a good quarter for us with deposit growth outpacing advances growth, sequential improvement in CASA ratio and Net Interest Margins. We continued to maintain a healthy Liquidity Coverage Ratio (LCR). The value of Net NPA and net carrying value of Security Receipts (SR) reduced by 30 bps point and our profits saw a ~3.5x fold increase compared to Q3FY23.”
