indostar capital: IndoStar Capital Finance third quarter results: profit plunges 40% to Rs 15 crore

New Delhi: IndoStar Capital Finance on Saturday reported a 40% drop in net profit to Rs 15 crore in the quarter ended December 2021 as it set aside a substantial amount for provisions and write-offs. The non-banking finance company had recorded a net profit of Rs 24.2 crore in the corresponding quarter of the previous financial year.

Total operating income increased by 4% to Rs 163.8 crore in the October to December quarter of FY22 from Rs 156.8 crore in the third quarter of FY21, IndoStar Capital said in a statement.

For the quarter, the company set aside Rs 42.7 crore for provisions and accelerated write-offs compared to Rs 46.2 crore set aside for the prior year quarter.

The AUM stands at Rs 9,236 crore, up 8% from the previous quarter, despite a gradual reduction in the corporate loan portfolio, which the company plans to reduce further. The company aims to be a 100% retail business, he added.

In line with its retailization strategy, the retail share is now 82%, compared to 75% last year.

Despite a cyclical slowdown in commercial vehicles and in the introduction of BS-VI, the segment remains profitable, underlining the quality of the commercial franchise.

Our internal focus coupled with a gradual upgrade and accelerating economy positions us well to capitalize on the huge post-pandemic opportunity.”
