Bharat Financial Inclusion Limited Key Developments

Bharat Financial Evaluating All Options For Stake-Sale

Bharat Financial Inclusion Limited (BSE:533228) is said it is open to complete takeover by a bank or a merger or even a 10% strategic-stake sale to a bank and has engaged a consultant to evaluate the options. IDFC Bank Limited (BSE:539437), IndusInd Bank Limited (BSE:532187) and RBL Bank Limited (BSE:540065) are in talks with the country’s first listed micro lender to this end. Managing Director M R Rao told ET that consultant is evaluating all options including share-swap or all-cash deal. This was the first time that M R Rao has officially spoke on the possibility of a buy-out in no uncertain terms. “A lot of discussions are going on (with these three private banks),” M R Rao said. “We have no bias on any bank. What we are looking at is that which bank would be best suited for the interest of the stakeholders – the customers, shareholders and employees.” M R Rao said. M R Rao said the idea of striking strategic deals with banks came when it was mulling to engage kirana stores to provide cash-in and cash-out facilities to borrowers. “We are open to partnership with banks on the premise that both customers and kirana stores should have bank accounts to run this process. We are open if a bank wants to provide the facility without any stake-sale. We are also happy, if the partner bank wants an 10% equity,” M R Rao said.
