ICICI Bank to buy minority stake in Kisan Rural Finance

  • ICICI Bank will acquire a 9.9% stake in non-banking finance company Kisan Rural Finance Ltd for Rs 17.82 crore ($2.5 million) in cash, the private-sector lender said.
  • The lender will buy about 14.9 million shares of Kisan Rural at Rs 12 apiece, it said in a stock-exchange filing.
  • However, the acquisition could help the bank meet the regulatory requirement of priority-sector lending target of 40%.
  • In January, it tied up with NBFC Small Business FinCredit to jointly provide loans worth up to Rs 1 crore to SMEs.
