"Canara Bank board approved raising additional equity capital of up to Rs.2,000 crores through Qualified Institutional Placement (QIP). QIP issue shall be within the overall maximum limit of the Board-approved capital raising plan (FY21) of Rs.5000 Crore Equity Share Capital. Canara Bank CAR as of 1 April 2020 was at 12.96, and CET 1 stands at 8.4%. Whereas the regulatory requirement for CET1 is 7.375%. Current CET 1 is near the regulatory threshold. And ongoing economic slowdown would impact the asset quality of the bank, which will force the bank to take escalated provision. Hence, it was necessary to shore up the capital base. Currently, bank trade at below its book value, and raising capital at a lower valuation will dilute capital."
