The private sector lender would hold the shareholders meeting on August 23 to take a call on the matter, City Union Bank MD and CEO N Kamakodi said here.
".. We are planning (to raise) Rs 500 crore through QIP," he told reporters here, adding, it will be used based on market opportunities.
According to him, the bank's tier-I capital as of June 30, 2017 was at 15.40 per cent and was "adequately capitalised."
Responding to a query, Kamakodi said the approval from the shareholders was valid for a period of one year.
"Since, the approval (of shareholders) is valid for one year, we will raise (funds) when there is a need," he said.
