IDFC First Bank had further said that Mr. Vaidyanathan will be selling share worth about Rs 35 crore on Friday so that he can repay the residual ESOP loan completely that he had taken to exercise his ESOP shares so as to release his pledged shares.
As per IDFC Bank's statement in a regulatory filing, “He had made it clear with this sale that he will have NIL ESOP loan so that he will not be needing to sell any more of his shares in the coming future. He properly explained that the IDFC bank is performing very well on all the counts. The bank is currently having a great performance on all the parameters, and he is definitely looking forward to continuing to build the bank to great heights with the highest degree of corporate governance going on as well.”
