Career @ ICICI Bank, India
ICICI Bank was originally promoted in 1994 by ICICI Limited, an Indian financial
institution, and was its wholly-owned subsidiary. ICICI's shareholding in ICICI
Bank was reduced to 46% through a public offering of shares in India in fiscal
1998, an equity offering in the form of ADRs listed on the NYSE in fiscal 2000,
ICICI Bank's acquisition of Bank of Madura Limited in an all-stock amalgamation
in fiscal 2001, and secondary market sales by ICICI to institutional investors
in fiscal 2001 and fiscal 2002. ICICI was formed in 1955 at the initiative of
the World Bank, the Government of India and representatives of Indian industry.
The principal objective was to create a development financial institution for
providing medium-term and long-term project financing to Indian businesses.
In the 1990s, ICICI transformed its business from a development financial
institution offering only project finance to a diversified financial services
group offering a wide variety of products and services, both directly and
through a number of subsidiaries and affiliates like ICICI Bank. In 1999, ICICI
become the first Indian company and the first bank or financial institution from
non-Japan Asia to be listed on the NYSE.
