Announcing the results, CEO Uday Kotak said the bank was “hungry” for acquisitions and would look at all inorganic opportunities in the financial sector, including banking.
Responding to a question on whether the bank was interested in IDBI Bank, Kotak said: “It’s not proper for me to talk with reference to any specific bank. I think our template is pretty clear. If we see value in customers and believe we are getting sticky customers at fair value. We will look at all acquisition opportunities.”
