AUM Growth: The company has grown its retail AUM in its core CV and Affordable Housing businesses by 49% over the past year from ₹ 5,295 crore in FY23 to ₹ 7,864 crore at the close of FY'24. Consolidated AUM including assets in the legacy businesses, stood at ₹ 8,763 crore.


Asset Quality Improvement: The company has demonstrated significant improvement in asset quality over the last year, with consolidated Gross Stage 3 assets at 4.10% in FY24 vs. 6.77% in FY23. In particular, the standalone Gross Stage 3 assets improved significantly, from 8.06% in March 23 to 4.97% currently, driven by keen focus on CV and SME collections and structural steps taken to sell down non-performing assets in the legacy SME business.


Progress on some key strategic initiatives is detailed here:


Sale of stressed portfolio of SME and monetization of SRs


During the quarter, the company took a decisive step forward in reducing its stressed portfolio by selling a portion of its SME loan portfolio, aggregating to principal outstanding of ₹ 39.5 crore, to Encore Asset Reconstruction Company. The company also transferred a portion of its standard SME portfolio with a principal outstanding of ₹ 143 crore at par through Direct Assignment. In continuation of its efforts to focus on growing its interest-bearing assets, the company monetised its Security Receipts (SR) from a previous asset reconstruction transaction on its legacy CV book, realizing ₹ 96.6 crore.


Equity infusion update


During the quarter, the Board and shareholders approved a fundraise of INR 456.7 crore via preferential allotment of warrants to Brookfield Asset Management through one of its private equity funds ("Brookfield") and Florintree Tecserv LLP ("Florintree"). The company will receive 25% of the warrant subscription amount following customary regulatory approvals, with the remaining 75% being received within subsequent 18 months. Following the fund raise, Brookfield will retain its present shareholding in the Company.


Insurance Corporate agent update


During the quarter, the company received a certificate of registration to act as a Corporate Agent from IRDAI. This will allow the company to cross-sell insurance products to its customers, generating fee income.


Focus of Raising Liquidity


The company has made progress in improving its liquidity position, by raising incremental funding of ~ ₹ 1,845 crore in Q4 FY24. IndoStar maintains healthy liquidity, with cash and cash equivalents including investments in mutual funds and treasury bills of ₹ 940 crore, as on March 31, 2024. As the company accelerates its disbursement engine, it aims to raise a significant amount of debt, bringing its current low debt-to-equity ratio position closer to industry norms.
