Shares of Lakshmi Vilas Bank (LVB) slipped 5 per cent to Rs 19.15 on the BSE in the intra-day trade on Wednesday on concerns Clix Capital’s proposed deal may not materialise after a large section of the bank’s shareholders voted against the reappointment of the top brass.

According to a report by business daily Mint, Clix Capital, which was in advanced talks with LVB for a potential merger, may approach the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) for clarity on the future of the deal after the bank’s shareholders voted out seven board members, including its managing director.
