During the quarter ended 31st December, 2016, the Company has reported Net Loss of Rs.16 Crores as against Profit After Tax (PAT) of Rs.67 Crores during the corresponding quarter last year.

Operations

During this quarter, the Company’s customer base has crossed 4.5 million customers. The Company currently has a network of 1181 offices and Total Assets Under Management (AUM) of Rs.45711 Crores as on 31st December, 2016, as against Rs.40282 Crores as on 31st December, 2015, a growth of 14%. Mahindra Finance for the nine months period ended 31st December, 2016, has disbursed (value of assets financed) Rs.23283 Crores as against Rs.19896 Crores, registering a growth of 17% over the same period previous year.

The Company follows prudential norms for income recognition, asset classification and provisioning for Non-Performing Assets (NPAs) as prescribed by Reserve Bank of India (RBI) for NBFCs and has also been making provision on an accelerated basis. The cumulative provision over the prescribed RBI norms is at Rs.809 Crores.

Consequent upon withdrawal of the legal tender status of the existing Rs.500 and Rs.1000 denomination currency notes by the Government Of India, RBI has permitted to defer the downgrade of an account by 90 days which was standard as of 1st November, 2016, but would have become NPA for any reason during this period. Accordingly, the Company has deferred the classification of 32456 borrower accounts as sub-standard assets which were standard assets as on 1st November, 2016 involving a provision of Rs.153 Crores (including income de-recognition).

The rural and semi-urban economy is majorly cash driven. The liquidity crunch in F17 Q3 has impacted business and recoveries which has led to a temporary increase in over dues. But, with good crop yields and liquidity situation normalising, we expect the situation to improve and customers to regularise their account in the forthcoming quarters
