New Delhi: Private lender Yes Bank on Tuesday reported 60% decline in its standalone net profit for June quarter at 45 crore.

The lender had reported net profit of 114 crore in the year-ago period.

Yes Bank's Q1 asset quality remains nearly the same compared to the previous quarter. The bank's gross non-performing assets was at 17.3% of gross advances as against 16.8% in March quarter while the net NPA stood at 4.96% as against 5.03% a quarter ago.

Total provisions for Q1FY21 are at 1,087 crore, including 642 crore of Covid-19-related provisioning.

On a quarterly basis, deposits grew 11% to 1,17,360 crore. "During the quarter, intensified client outreach resulted in win back of mandates and acceleration in customer acquisition," the bank said.

The bank recently raised 15,000 crore through an FPO, after which SBI's stake in it fell to 30% from the earlier 48.21%.

The beleaguered bank's net interest income declined 16.3% to 1,908 crore as compared to 2,281 crore a year ago.

Total income (standalone) for the April-June quarter of 2020-21 fell by 32.8 per cent to 6,106.74 crore, from 9,088.80 crore in same period of 2019-20, Yes Bank said in a regulatory filing.
