The Board of Directors of Sundaram Finance Ltd. (SFL) approved the audited standalone and consolidated financial results for the year ended March 31, 2023, at its meeting held on May 26, 2023, in Chennai.

“We have re-established our pre-Covid growth trajectory in FY23 while improving asset quality to our traditional standards. Assets under management grew by 17%, gross stage 3 assets recovered to 1.66% with net stage 3 assets at 0.86%, and profits after tax recorded a 20% growth to Rs. 1,088 crores. Our group companies in asset management, general insurance, and home finance continued to perform strongly. As we look ahead, we remain steadfast in executing our balanced & time-tested approach of measured growth with best-in-class asset quality and consistent profitability,” said Harsha Viji, Executive Vice Chairman.  

Disbursements for FY23 recorded a growth of 58% over FY22 with all asset classes and geographies witnessing significant growth in the full year. With the improvement in economic activity and the viability of our customers, Gross stage 3 assets improved substantially over the corresponding period of last year driven by our focused collection efforts & deep customer relationships. Gross stage 3 assets as on March 31, 2023, stood at 1.66% with a provision cover of 49% as against 2.19% as on March 31, 2022, with a provision cover of 52%. Profit after tax at Rs. 1,088 crores registered an increase of 20% in FY23 as against Rs. 903 crores in FY22. Return on assets at 2.8% improved over FY22 (2.5%) and capital adequacy at 22.8% remains quite comfortable to support planned growth.

“It has been a satisfying year of Growth with Quality and Profitability powered by our people, processes, and technology. We added over 2,500 people to our team, opened 62 branches, and rolled out a number of technology, digital & data-powered offerings aimed at significantly improving the productivity of our staff and enhancing the experience of our customers. Looking ahead, as inflation eases and economic activity continues to gather pace, global factors notwithstanding, we expect growth in the economy to sustain. Team Sundaram is geared up to leverage the foundation laid in FY23 to extend our market share across asset classes & geographies while delivering the Sundaram experience to our customers and other stakeholders,” said Rajiv Lochan, Managing Director.
