Yes Bank Q4 Earnings

One of India’s leading private sector banks, Yes Bank, on March 22, reported a significant decline in net profit of about 45% for the January-March quarter compared to the same period last year.

This sudden drop in profits were due to increased provisions made for bad loans and security receipts. The net profit recorded for the quarter was 2.02 billion Indian rupees ($24.63 million), a drop from 3.67 billion rupees in the corresponding period in the previous year. 

However, the net profit for the quarter ended March 2023, was three times higher when compared to profit numbers for the quarter ended December 2022 on account of a statistical phenomenon called the lower base effect.

Yes Bank share price has had a somewhat mixed performance of late. The Yes Bank share price is down 28% so far in 2023 and up 14% in the past year. The Bank Nifty, meanwhile, has eased 1.3% in 2023 so far and gained 18% in the past year.
