Mr. Samit Ghosh, MD & CEO, Ujjivan Small Finance Bank said, “We have taken significant provision in this quarter based on the collection trends in the quarter. We have ensured 100% provision of the hard core NPAs of the November, December & January loan portfolio amounting to ₹ 150 crore. We have fully dedicated teams engaged on recovery at branches in affected states to optimize overdue collections. In addition we have set up specialized collection teams focussed on over dues over 90 days. This is yielding good results as shown with overall reduction in PAR in the quarter. We will continue monitoring the trend in the next quarters and ensure adequate provisioning for the balance NPAs.

Further the collection efficiency for the new business from January is back to normal which stands at 99.76%. On the business front, we have seen normalcy returning in terms of disbursements across states with disbursement crossing a monthly average of pre-demonetization level. Growth will kick-in from this quarter onwards for overall business.

On the SFB Branch roll out plans, we are on track with 52 branches already rolled out till now and there is a good interest from both existing MFI customers and open markets customers in terms of deposit generation”

Commenting on the performance of the company Ms. Sudha Suresh, MD & CEO Ujjivan Financial Services said, “Our Cost to income in absolute amount is in line with the expectation, however the ratio in percentage terms is higher due to the low base impact of flat loan book and reversal of interest income due to NPA. We expect cost to income ratio to consistently come down during the year.

As we await the schedule bank status, we are confident to raise deposits enabling our funding cost to come down by around 150 bps.

Our CAR is positioned comfortably at 19.83%. We expect this ratio to improve further with the run-down of the grandfathered bank loans. We expect a repayment of around 65-70% of these loans during this financial year”
