New Delhi, Oct 13 (PTI) Public sector lender Dena Bank today said it has raised Rs 401.26 crore by issuing equity shares through qualified institutional placement (QIP) route.

The Issue Committee of the board of directors of the bank at the meeting held today approved the closure of the QIP today (October 13, 2017).

It approved the “issue price of Rs 29.30 per equity share, with a discount of 5 per cent or Rs 1.54 per equity share…for an aggregate value of Rs 401.26 crore, to be allotted to eligible qualified institutional buyers (QIBs) in the QIP,” the bank said in a regulatory filing.
