Press Release :: ING Bank

Logo ING BankThe merger between ING Vysya Bank (Vysya) and Kotak Mahindra Bank (Kotak) has today been completed. The combined entity has a strengthened position as one of India's leading privately held banks, with a wider geographical spread and enhanced expertise across customer segments and product categories.

ING will continue to service its Indian clients outside of India and will support its global clients operating in India through the larger combined platform. ING and Kotak have also established an active dialogue with respect to additional areas of cooperation across a broad range of products.

Vysya and Kotak announced their intention to merge their respective businesses on 20 November 2014. On 31 March 2015 the Reserve Bank of India has approved this transaction with effect from 1 April 2015.

ING was the largest shareholder in Vysya with a shareholding at the time of announcement of the merger of 42.7%. Under the terms of the transaction as announced on 20 November 2014, shareholders of Vysya will receive 0.725 shares in Kotak for each Vysya share. ING will hold a stake of 6.5 % in the combined company, which will operate under the Kotak brand. ING's holding in the combined company will be subject to a 1 year lock-up period from the closing of the transaction.

Based on Vysya's book value as per 31 December 2014, the gain on this transaction will be approximately EUR 450 million. The majority of this will be reflected in the net profit of the second quarter of 2015. The increase in net profit compared to the earlier announced EUR 150 million net profit is a result of the increase in the share price of Kotak since the date the transaction was announced, as well as positive currency impact.

As of 1 April, the legal entity ING Vysya Bank Ltd has ceased to exist. Vysya was established over 80 years ago, offering retail, private and wholesale banking products. In 1999 ING Bank's predecessor Bank Bruxelles Lambert acquired an equity stake in Vysya which ING increased in 2002 to around the level of the 42.7% shareholding which ING still held at the time of the announcement of the merger with Kotak. In 2002, ING also formed an Insurance joint-venture with Vysya, in which ING sold its interest in 2013.
