AU Small Finance Bank Friday said

has raised tier II capital of Rs 500 crore through non

convertible bonds issued on a private placement basis.

The bank raised the fund from a group of domestic

investors which included mutual funds, banks, insurance

companies and non-banking finance companies.

The base size of the issue was Rs 300 crore and a

green shoe option of Rs 200 crore. The six-and-a-half year

bond offered a coupon of 10.4 per cent, the company said in

a release.

Earlier this year, Temasek Holdings, an investment arm

of Government of Singapore, had committed an equity investment

of Rs 1,000 crore in the bank.

Out of this, Temasek has already invested Rs 475

crore in June 2018 and the remaining amount of Rs 525 crore is

expected to be invested by or before December 2019.

Small finance banks are required to maintain a total

capital adequacy ratio of 15 per cent with a minimum tier 1

CRAR ratio of 7.5 per cent.

As on September 30, AU Bank had a total CRAR of

around 17.8 per cent with a tier 1 CRAR of close to 17.2 per

cent indicating enough cushion for raising tier II capital.
