New Delhi / Chennai, November , 2017: Satin Creditcare Network Limited (“SCNL”) [BSE: 539404; NSE: SATIN, CSE: 30024] the second largest microfinance company in the country, today reported its results for the second quarter ending September 30, 2017. For Q2FY18, on a consolidated basis, the company recorded a 7.5% YoY growth in Gross AUM at Rs. 4,493 Cr. The company recorded a PAT of Rs. 11.3 crore for Q2FY18 on account of lower provisioning charges and lower operating expenses. The results were taken on record at the meeting of the Board of Directors here today.
Speaking on the company’s performance during the quarter, Mr. H P Singh, the Chairman and Managing Director said, “With our consistent focus on improving our business operations and collections we have returned to profitability this quarter. Satin was one of the most impacted MFIs during the demonetization phase with 70% of our portfolio being in geographies impacted due to demonetization. In spite of this, we have 98% collections on our new portfolio. This turnaround not only showcases the true strength of the JLG business model and but also Satin’s commitment to further the agenda of financial inclusion in India.”
Last month, Satin completed its QIP resulting in an improvement in company’s CRAR (Capital to Risk Assets Ratio) to 25.27%, from 20.91% as of Sep 30, 2017. This gives the company ample headroom to capitalize on growth opportunities.
Mr. Singh further added, “Satin sees huge opportunity in the microfinance segment and is well-capitalized for growth. As part of our efforts to diversify geographically, we started operations in Assam during Q1FY18 and in Orissa in Q2FY18. As of Sep 2017, we had 19 branches in Assam and 17 in Orissa and our portfolio in these states is scaling up well. Our MSME portfolio has also scaled up and today stands at Rs. 60 Cr. We are on track to meet our full year guidance.”
