- Yes Bank's asset quality worsened in the quarter ended June 30 as its bad loans ratios rose sharply on a quarterly basis.
- Analysts said the earnings miss might trigger some correction in the stock in the near term.
- "Yes Bank quarterly numbers are bad. We had expected the bank to report net profit of Rs 170-180 crore and it is very bad compared to expectations. Asset quality has also worsened and Yes bank shares can witness a bout of correction," Avinash Gorakshakar of Joindre Capital told NDTV.
- The bank's net interest income - the difference between interest earned and interest paid - rose 2.78 per cent to Rs 2,280.84 crore in the first quarter of current financial year, from Rs 2,219.14 crore in the year-ago period.
