Among the buzzing stocks today is Punjab National Bank.
Punjab National Bank’s (PNB) board of directors has approved capital raising of upto Rs 60 bn via bonds.
The bank will raise this capital through issuance of Basel III additional Tier-1 (AT-1) bonds or Tier-II bonds or a combination of both in one or more tranches.
PNB has been from time to time raising AT-1 (Basel III compliant) capital bonds. It maybe recalled that the bank had last year set out to raise capital to the tune of Rs 140 bn from the market.
In May this year, PNB had raised Rs 18 bn via a Qualified Institutional Placement (QIP) by selling 530 m shares on a private placement basis to investors like LIC, BNP Paribas and Societe Generale.
Given that AT-1 bonds carry lot of risk, the market regulator had earlier stipulated that the banks’ deemed residual maturity of AT-1 bonds (Basel III compliant) should be valued as 100-year debt from 1 April 2021.
However, the regulator had relaxed this norm following opposition from the finance ministry. It has now said that the maturity of AT-1 bonds would be 10 years until 31 March 2022.

Zomato Shuts Down Nutraceutical Business
After shutting down its grocery delivery service, online food delivery firm Zomato has pulled the plug on another business – nutraceuticals.
The company has decided to shut it at a time when the government is trying to get stricter about private label norms for marketplace businesses in the country.
While the company confirmed the development, it declined to share further details.
Nutraceuticals are defined as any food-related product which provides medical or health benefits. This could range from food to beverages or even tablets with a claim of prevention or cure of chronic diseases.
Citing a huge opportunity, Zomato had made a plunge in the segment and named Gaurav Gupta, Chief Operating Officer as the head of this division for five years.
The company also shut down its grocery business given the gaps in order fulfillment, poor customer experience, and increasing competition from rivals.
It said that its investment in Grofers will generate better outcomes than its in-house grocery effort.
How this pans out remains to be seen. Meanwhile, stay tuned for more updates from this space.
