Commenting on the performance Mr. Manoj Viswanathan, MD & CEO said, "Our Q1 FY22 performance was strong, considering that we had to deal with a severe second wave of Covid. We recorded an AUM growth of 18.5% y-o-y and a sequential growth in PAT of 12.2%. Wave 2 of Covid had a bigger impact on health, while livelihoods and incomes were broadly protected. Industries were allowed to function by maintaining strict Covid protocols. Construction work and industrial units were operational and in-fact exports reached a historical high during Q1. Increasing vaccination is seen as a strong counter to fatalities and this has led to the positive momentum in businesses. At HomeFirst, 99% of our employees are vaccinated with at-least one dose.

We expect the upward trend to continue as the overall opportunity remains large; supported by low interest rates and muted house prices, driving strong business growth. Also, people realized the importance of home ownership in the past 18 months, more than ever before. Affordable Housing Finance sector remains one of the most resilient segments, validated through better collection efficiencies compared to other segments. Besides, the inherent resilience of this sector, our focus on the salaried segment in industrialized and urbanized states helped us stay on course through these difficult times.

Digital adoption has also accelerated during Covid times. Usage of the customer app for various activities has increased. 67% of our customers are registered on our app as on Jun'21 compared to 48% in Jun'20. Payments received via the app have gone up by 135% in the same period.

Our collection efficiency improved in June to 97.6% (April & May at 94.7% & 94.0% respectively). Bounce rates improved in July'21 to 16.1% (Q1 FY22 - 18.3%, Q4 FY21 - 17.3%). Our Gross Stage 3 inched up marginally by 10 bps to 1.9% and restructuring under the RBI framework during the quarter was just 60 bps.

Q1 Disbursement at INR 305 Crs is at a commendable run-rate of 67.4% vis--vis Q4 FY21 levels (y-o-y growth of 476.9%). This is further enhanced by the fact that this growth is broad based across all our markets.

On Direct Assignment (DA), we have completed a transaction worth INR 118 Crs during this quarter. Like in the past, company continues to explore these transactions which will help optimize the capital usage, bring down leverage, improve cost of funds as well as balance the existing liquidity position of the company.

We remain committed to our strong tech-led operating model in the housing finance space and continue to invest in building a trusted brand that delivers superior service to customers with industry leading turnaround times."
