Canara Bank’s ₹2,000 crore QIP
Canara Bank had received shareholders' nod in its annual general meeting, held in August, for raising up to ₹2,000 crore by way of QIP.
A QIP is when a listed company can issue its equity shares to a select group of qualified institutional buyers (QIBs). It undercuts most of the red tape that’s found in other methods of raising funds through equity shares.
"A meeting of the sub-committee of the board-Capital Planning Process of the board of directors of the bank is scheduled to be held on Thursday, December 10, 2020, to consider and determine the issue price for the equity shares as well as the number of shares to be allotted to qualified institutional buyers, pursuant to the QIP," the bank said.
