About Issuer 

Muthoot Finance Limited (MFL) stands as the flagship company within The Muthoot Group, a Kerala-based conglomerate engaged in a wide range of business sectors, including financial services, healthcare, education, and hospitality.

Graphical representation of the Company’s Profit Data from (2021-2023) 

Year Total Income Profit AUM 
31-MAR-21 1,05,148.49 37,221.78 634649.24 
31-Mar-22 1,10,323.24 53,093.54 7,05,546.88 
31-Mar-23 1,05,572.12 46,664.26 7,26,198.14 

The company’s operating profit took a hit in Q1 FY2023 because the operating cost ratio increased to 3.5%, up from 3.0% in FY2022 (and 3.3% in FY2021, or 4.3-4.6% during FY2017-FY2020). This increase was mainly due to higher advertising expenses and increased corporate social responsibility (CSR) costs. 

However, the company’s overall earnings remained strong, thanks to consistently low credit costs in the gold loan business (less than 1% over the past decade with an average of 0.5%). Looking ahead, ICRA expects the net profitability to stabilize at 4.0-5.0% over the medium term.
