The acquired shares amounted to 17.31 percent of the total diluted share capital of the company with a similar amount of voting rights, the filing added.

The shares were acquired by Yes Bank on 16 February, consequent upon invocation of pledge on these shares, it added.

On 15 February, the Supreme Court lifted its stay on sale of shares of Fortis Healthcare pledged with banks by the promoters Singh brothers (Malvinder Mohan Singh and Shivinder Mohan Singh) before 31 August, allowing financial institutions, including Axis Bank and Yes Bank, to sell the pledged shares.

Subsequently, the stake of promoter firm Fortis Healthcare Holdings along with promoters (Singh brothers) and other family entities have come down to 5.87 percent from 34.43 percent earlier.
