Credit Risks

  • Average asset quality: 

    The asset quality has witnessed some stress over the past few quarters with gross non-performing asset (GNPA)and net non-performing asset (NNPA)increasing to 2.66% and1.59%respectively, as of March 31, 2021. The said ratios deteriorated mainly on account of high slippages in the non-housing loan book and shrinkage in the asset base. However, BHFL managed to restrict asset quality from further deterioration with the reduction in slippages to NPA and maintaining healthy collection efficiency levels as of Sep30, 2021.GNPA and NNPA of the Company stood at 2.69% and 1.53%, respectively as of Sep 30, 2021. The management’s continuous focus is to scale own its corporate loan book which is more vulnerable to the real estate sector risk, contributing~14%of the total AUM. Further, BWR continues to derive comfort from the credit appraisal system, the company’s risk management policies, its focus on reducing exposure through refinance and prepayments, and its demonstrated ability to recover dues from borrowers.  
  • Subdued profitability levels:

    The Company’s profitability levels were impacted due to falling income levels on the back of shrinkage of the loan book, high provisioning due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, and falling NIM due to selling down of high-yielding developer loan portfolio coupled with high credit costs as on Sep30,2021. IBHFL reported PAT of Rs.568.03 Crores (ROA & ROE of 1.25 % & 7.15%, respectively) as of Sep 30,2021 compared to Rs.596Crs (ROA &ROEof1.26%&7.09%, respectively) as of Sep 30,2020. BWR believes that its profitability levels are expected to remain subdued in the current financial year owing to restricted AUM growth along with the high cost of borrowings. The ability of IBHFL to scale up its retail loan book under the new business model and raise funds at competitive rates to improve its profitability levels remains a key monitorable.
