"The proceeds will be solely utilised to prepay substantial portion of outstanding non-convertible debentures (NCDs) of MCPL subscribed by various schemes of Reliance Nippon Life Asset Management Company (RNAM)," the company said in a regulatory filing.

"The board of directors of Yes Bank would like to state that the financial position of the bank is sound and stable, its operating performance continues to be robust and its growth plans stay firmly on track," it added.

Shares of Yes Bank on Thursday plummeted nearly 16 percent after a Moody's report said the Altico default may be credit negative for banks given their significant exposure to the real estate sector.
