Syndicate Bank(Merged) Chairman Speech

Dear Shareholders,

At the outset, I would like to convey that I am indeed humbled to have been given the honour and privilege to chair this prestigious institution and look forward to contributing to its growth.

As we reflect on the year gone by, after a long period of subdued growth the global economy has experienced a broad-based cyclical recovery aided by a rebound in investment and trade. Despite some of the more recent global volatility, driven by protectionist trends and geopolitical tensions, the positive trend is expected to sustain. On the domestic front, India too benefited from this global upward momentum with robust GDP growth, FDI inflows, strong foreign exchange reserves and increased public investment in infrastructure. Corporate India has also started seeing green shoots and recovering from the effects of demonetisation and GST as is evident from improving results.

2017-18 has, however, been a testing & challenging time for the banking sector, largely due to legacy issues. Despite this our global business grew by 6% to `4.96 lakh crore. Profits of many banks eroded due to higher provisions against NPA and stressed assets, mark to market (MTM) losses and reduced profits from treasury operations due to which there was pressure on capital.

As a result, most of the PSBs resorted to measures to strengthen their capital position in the Financial Year 2017-18. Towards this objective, your Bank also raised an amount of `1150.80 crore through QIP and received capital infusion of `2839 crore from the Government of India.

This infusion is however, at best, an interim solution. We need a clear & sustainable strategy that will establish us as India's premier bank in the years to come.

Fortunately, in many ways your bank is well positioned with some unique strengths:

1. We have an extensive and enviable footprint with over 4000 branches nationwide.

2. We have a strong and credible brand with a rich history and legacy

3. We have a committed team of around 35,000 professionals

4. We have a loyal customer base.

5. We have, over the years, built a strong infrastructure and asset base.

Our single biggest challenge, however, is the urgent need to enhance our competitiveness and become a customer-centric organization. With the rapidly accelerating pace of change and the constantly evolving external environment, agility and responsiveness is the new normal. We too need to reinvent ourselves. Speed is of the essence.

To position us to succeed in this new reality, your bank has embarked on an ambitious transformation initiative called "Project Ananya" to radically overhaul our systems and position ourselves for the future.

The four pillars of Project Ananya are:

Business Process Reengineering (BPR),

Digital Banking,

Customers relationship management (CRM),

Human Resource Development.

The most critical of these is building a culture of performance, productivity and accountability while continuing to improve transparency and good governance. This includes leveraging technology, building a strong analytics capability, enhancing skills and becoming a process driven organization – all with our customers at the center.

Simultaneously, we are focused on building the next generation of leaders and we are making significant investments in this area. This is a subject I am personally passionate about and remain committed to implementing. We are at a crucial inflexion point and our response will determine our future. I am confident, we will emerge stronger and regain our past glory as these new initiatives begin to bear fruit.

In closing, I would like to express my sincere appreciation to our diverse Board for their active engagement and contribution to this national endeavor.

I would also like to thank our employees and all our other stakeholders for their dedicated and continued support as we march on to a great future.

Thank you.

Yours sincerely,

Place: Manipal
