IIFL Finance Ltd Q1 FY23 Results
IIFL Finance Q1FY23 Results update
IIFL Finance Q1FY23 profits at Rs. 330 Crore, up 24% y-o-y.
For the quarter ended June 30, 2022, the Company reported Total comprehensive income (TCI) of Rs. 332 Cr up 33% y-o-y and net profit after tax of Rs. 330 Cr up 24% y-o-y. Pre-provision operating profit (PPOP) was Rs. 674 Cr. Loan growth in core products was robust – Gold loans and Home loans AUM grew by 29% and 26% y-o-y respectively. Microfinance and Business loans grew by 43% and 7% y-o-y respectively. The non-core (primarily Construction & real estate finance) portfolio shrank by 15% y-o-y. The Company has been on an aggressive expansion spree, adding over 200 branches and about 2,000 manpower. For many loan products, the first quarter of the financial year is seasonally slack, we expect the growth pace to accelerate. While Q1 was impacted by higher provisions for microfinance and other loans, intense competitive pressure on gold yield seems to be easing and demand for home and business loans is seeing positive traction.

Mr. Nirmal Jain, Managing Director, IIFL Finance Ltd., remarked on the financial results: “FY23 has begun well. Credit demand for retail loan products is picking up. Hike in interest rate till now, has not had any significant impact on credit demand or performance. India’s macro economy has been responding positively to the interventions by government and central bank. While good monsoon and downward trend in the commodity prices, augur well for the Indian economy, risk factors for growth continue to be inflation leading to interest rate hikes and adverse global geo- political developments. We are excited about ADIA’s equity investment to bolster our housing finance business. Our long- term strategy of expansion of physical network and attaining digital domain depth remain on track. We are optimistic about outlook for the NBFC sector and the company’s robust competitive position in the sector.”
