The company had 63 branches with a loan portfolio outstanding of Rs.137 crore as on September 30, 2013.Performance on key parameters

  • Loan portfolio grew by 69 percent in 2012-13, after a brief period of consolidation post the Andhra
  • Pradesh crisis; most of the growth has happened following the takeover by IntelleCash in September 2012
  • 30+ dpd has declined sharply over the past 12 months and was nearly 1 percent as on April 30, 2013; this follows a sustained period of high delinquencies immediately after the Andhra Pradesh crisis
  • Has relationships with over 10 lenders comprising banks, NBFCs, and financial institutions for funding; also raises funds through securitization
  • Capitalization comfortable for medium-term growth plans; raised Rs.22 crore as capital in September 2013 after the first round of capital infusions by IntelleCash
  • Profitability remains modest, despite improvement. Ability to improve profitability as operations expand into low-income states like Uttar Pradesh, Jharkhand, Odisha, Chhattisgarh, and Madhya Pradesh will be critical
