Finance Ministry initiates process for finding new SBI chief

NEW DELHI: The finance ministry has initiated the process for finding new chief of the country’s largest lender State Bank of India (SBI) as Arundhati Bhattacharya‘s extended term comes to an end on October 6.

“Department of Financial Services has communicated to Banks Board Bureau the emerging vacancies at the top level of PSU banks which will have to be filled during course of the year,” a senior finance ministry official said.

This also includes chairman and one managing director of the SBI, which alone has market share of more than 20 per cent.

Bhattacharya will complete her four-year term as chairperson of SBI on October 6.

Besides chairman, SBI has four managing directors looking after different departments.

The post assumes significance as the bank has recently merged five associates and the Bharatiya Mahila Bank (BMB) pushing SBI into the league of top 50 banks globally in terms of assets.

State Bank of Bikaner and Jaipur (SBBJ), State Bank of Hyderabad (SBH), State Bank of Mysore (SBM), State Bank of Patiala (SBP) and State Bank of Travancore (SBT), besides BMB, merged with SBI with effect from April 1. The process of integration would at least take a year.

The government had in February approved the merger of these five associate banks with SBI. Later in March, the Cabinet approved merger of BMB as well. SBI first merged State Bank of Saurashtra with itself in 2008. Two years later, State Bank of Indore was merged with it.

For the fourth quarter ended March 2017, the bank reported more than doubling of its net profit on the back of increased lending and reduction in provisioning for bad loans. Net profit of the bank on standalone basis rose to Rs 2,814.82 crore for the March quarter as against Rs 1,263.81 crore in the same period of previous fiscal 2015-16.

For the entire fiscal ended March 2017, the net profit of the bank improved by 5.36 per cent to Rs 10,484 crore as against Rs 9,951 crore in the previous fiscal. With stock prices inching up, SBI has lined up share sale through which it intends to raise Rs 15,000 crore during the current fiscal.

It is in the process of appointing six merchant bankers for managing its proposed share sale. The central government holds 62.22 per cent stake in the bank as of March 2017.

IT worker groups criticise steep hike in Infosys executives compensation

BENGALURU: Two IT employee groups have flayed the steep hike in compensation awarded to top executives of Infosys, terming the move by the software giant as “painful” amid job losses in the industry.

According to the 2017 annual report of Infosys that was published on the company’s website, payouts of at least four Infosys executives have increased+ by over 50 per cent in the previous fiscal year.

“Year-after-year, the IT companies remove and sack professionals and simultaneously hike their top executives’ salaries in the name of fancied compensation based on variable pay and stock incentives,” FITE General Secretary AJ Vinod told PTI. “They are just like the politicians who hike their salaries, without being concerned about people’s problems, including job losses. It is painful,” Vinod said.

The FITE is a forum of IT employees and has presence in nine IT hubs, including Chennai, Pune and Bengaluru.

New Democratic Labour Front (NDLF) Legal Advisor Suresh said that top executives of companies, including Infosys, should understand that the hike they are getting is only possible because of the employees who put in 10 to 12 hours work.

According to Infosys’ annual report, Presidents Rajesh Murthy, Sandeep Dadlani, Mohit Joshi and Deputy Chief Operating Officer Ravi Kumar received a total compensation of over Rs 14 crore. The hike was in the form of performance- based stock incentives.

“When you give 10 or 20 per cent hike to top executives, it drains out lot of money from the purses of the companies, which compels them to take the measure of sacking professionals,” the FITE said.

Tata Power misses 4th-quarter profit estimates as costs rise

REUTERS – Tata Power Co Ltd on Friday reported a fourth-quarter adjusted profit that missed analysts’ estimates, as lower recovery on the cost of fuel at one of its major power plants and higher fuel costs hurt margins.

On an adjusted basis, excluding a one-time charge, the company posted an increase in consolidated net profit to 3.89 billion rupees for the quarter ended March 2017.

Analysts on average had expected a consolidated profit of 4.26 billion rupees, according to Thomson Reuters data.

The charge is related to a write-off of a major part of the company’s investments in the equity shares of Tata Teleservices Ltd (TTSL), in which Tata Power holds an interest.

Including the charge, Tata Power posted a consolidated net loss for the quarter of 2.47 billion rupees ($38.1 million).

Tata Power had made a provision of 6.51 billion rupees that came from Tata Teleservices‘ share buy-back from Japan‘s NTT DoCoMo, after an arbitration award in favour of DoCoMo, Tata Power said in an exchange filing.

The Delhi high court last month had approved the settlement of a dispute between Tata Sons and NTT DoCoMo, allowing the Indian firm to buy out the Japanese firm’s stake in the telecoms joint venture.

Tata Power said consolidated revenue from its power business dipped 12 percent to 59.75 billion rupees in the March quarter.

Shares of the Mumbai-based power company closed up 0.5 percent on the National Stock Exchange.

Trump bump to Trump slump: dollar posts worst week in 10 months

* Political tumult in Washington weighs on greenback

* Dollar index poised for weekly loss of 1.6 pct

* Euro hits 6-month high

* Graphic: World FX rates in 2017 http://tmsnrt.rs/2egbfVh

By Jemima Kelly

LONDON, May 19 (Reuters) – The dollar was on track to record its worst week against a basket of currencies since July on Friday, having given up almost all the gains made since Donald Trump, now surrounded by political worries, was elected U.S. president last year.

The dollar index, which measures the greenback against a basket of six major rivals including a heavily weighted euro, has fallen around 1.8 percent this week. On Wednesday it hit its lowest since Nov. 9, the day of the U.S. election results, and traded close to that level on Friday.

Uproar over Trump’s firing of James Comey as FBI director and allegations, repeatedly denied, of links between the president’s team and Russia, have pressured the dollar.

The U.S. currency has also suffered from a resurgent euro, which has gained more than 2 percent this week – on track for its best performance since June – and rose 0.7 percent on Friday to hit a six-month high of $1.11745.

That resurgence, said analysts, was a result of a renewed focus on a possible winding back of the European Central Bank‘s expansive monetary stimulus programme, with data pointing to a robust recovery in the euro zone.

“Now that the French election is out of the way, political risk has fallen in Europe, and markets are refocusing on monetary policy, where the focus is on imminent tightening from the ECB,” said Commerzbank currency strategist Thu Lan Nguyen, in Frankfurt.

Analysts the dollar was also being pressured by fears that Trump’s travails could delay or derail promised fiscal stimulus measures.

“The market is fearful now that the cuts in regulation, the tax incentives, etc., just won’t be forthcoming because the administration will be so busy fire-fighting scandals, it won’t be able to push through any of its promises,” said Rabobank currency strategist Jane Foley, in London.

Foley added that worries over Trump had also coincided with a run of weaker U.S. data that has seen a slight pull-back of expectations that the Federal Reserve will hike interest rates next month, which had also pressured the dollar.

Against the safe-haven yen, the dollar edged down 0.1 percent to 111.35 and was on track for its first week of falls in five, with risk appetite having fallen across markets this week.
