Under housing for all initiative: If your loan amount is less than 6lacs EMI gets reduced by 45% and if it is less than 12lacs than by approx 22%… so that is a substantial number for housing push in affordable market.
This is the key trigger… for many cases this would result in rental=EMI and hence push more people towards buying their won house.

Seems like they are providing Zero % EMI scheme to attract the customers.
Isn’t it true that at the end of the day there must be some earnings?
How do they make money?

It looks like the 0% financing for Consumer durables is the price they pay for Customer acquisition. Once they have the customer they should be able to sell their other loan products like auto, housing, personal loan etc. which might be lucrative. Not bad actually since you would have the profile of the Customer with his spending habits and repayment capacity.

The business model is simple. They take money from the manufacturer/dealer.
If you purchased a TV from a dealer at 40k using Bajaj Finance 0% EMI, you would just be charged a nominal processing fee. The dealer on the other hand would be paying Bajaj an amount ( 1-2k) and still make decent profits (4-6k).
The beauty is that everyone wins in this scheme. Customer feels that he got a great deal, dealer gets his profit share and Bajaj get their due as well.

Sadly these guys are also now issuing equity to raise money. Everyone can’t be Gruh :slight_smile:


(Abhishek Basumallick) #173

All finance companies need to raise money from time to time, specially those who are growing fast. Raising money at high P/B (>8.5) is actually helpful from the companies perspective where they get the raw material (cash) cheaply from the market.

(kanvgarg123) #174

But if PAT growth is equal to or more than loan book growth then why would you need it if the leverage remains the same?
(PAT+Accumulated Earnings-Dividend)*(Leverage) == loan Book
I am assuming ROE to remain same.
Correct me if I am wrong.

(Yogesh Sane) #175

This is surprising as Sanjiv Bajaj recently said they may not need capital until 2018.

They probably grew faster than their estimates so raising capital sooner than estimated.

Please listen to today’s call. Also it will be good if you somebody can throw light on BFL 2.0. It seems, it was discussed in AGM. It is about 15 areas and 7 themes

Some big but honest statements from Rajiv Jain, CEO, Bajaj Finance during concall on 19-Jul, just reveal how significant is the business momentum on the ground that it is taking the management itself by surprise:

“What we are learning is that consumer businesses are very difficult to build but once they are built they reach an inflection point from where they get into a very different orbit. That really is my assessment in hindsight and I must be honest about it.”

“Retail EMI & Ecommerce is the biggest opportunity that we see. It’s now beginning to gain momentum. I foresee that Diwali qtr will be a big qtr for this biz. It will break even in 3rd qtr and as I was saying earlier that once these things breakeven they just hit a very different orbit. So that’s really what we are banking on.”

There were many other statements but listening is more delightful :slight_smile: Go listen.

For an NBFC, it’s better to raise capital when market is offering it to you at high PBV. When you need it, market conditions may not be favorable.

This happened with Yes Bank in 2012-14 period. It needed capital to sustain growth but market conditions did not allow it to raise equity at high PBV. Growth eventually slowed down from 30+ to 10-12%. It finally managed to do a QIP in 2014 and growth rate has been back to 30%.

It’s rival IndusInd Bank on the other hand raised funds on time and 25% growth rate never faltered in 2010-2017 period.

ICICI to offer loans up-to 15lakhs via ATM. Stocks are costly, market is up, loans are on platter. Start of bubble. My 2 cents.

Disc; Not invested

(Abhishek Basumallick) #181

I am not sure at all. ICICI has become much more circumspect about their lending these days. Gone are the Kamath days of mindless lending. I am sure not every customer will get the loan from the ATM. Only qualified ones can apply from loans through an ATM. It is just another channel to reach the target client. Today when a client logs into netbanking, they are offered loans based on their profile, same would be the case here.

What I got from concall, NBFC financing is not an easy business, it took BFIN 10 years to perfect the model of Auto Financing and 4 years for e-Commerce and digital financing.

Also to them there is nothing called Secured and Non-Secured. This kind of confidence can be achieved provided you know, your technological model and internal regulatory model are robust enough to minimize the human factors

Hello Ashu

Just to look at it from a different angle and to add to Abhishek’s point.

Banks give loans to customers if they are credit worthy, that’s the tenet. Servicing a customer is costliest at the branch, cheaper at the ATM and the cheapest on his mobile phone.

Every bank’s intent or rather a utopian goal is to shut down branches and have everything done via phone. This if it actually works out is better for the company as it reduces considerable costs.

Friends I said start of bubble, not a bubble yet. Even in USA they have safeguards, but still housing bubble burst. Problem is easy availability of money.
