Ashirvad microfinance securitises Micro Finance Portfolio


Came across this article here that mentions an IPO for Asirvad Micro Finance subsidiary of Mannappuram. Can veterans of VP throw some light on how this would impact shareholders of Manappuram itself? Asirvad has been recently doing well and an IPO would mean dilution of stake for Manappuram - OR would this be something like a de-merger and shareholders of Manappuram would receive additional shares of Asirvad?


Well, I have heard that Mr. Nandkumar is unwilling to exit gold loan biz which is a kind of cash cow. There are many who wanted to buy it though. Sentiment towards well run MFIs is improving after Indusind’s acquisition of Bharat Financial and now HDFC’s financial interest in Bandhan. It seems that he would like to monetise MFI biz at some point of time and focus on Gold, Vehicle and housing. In the long run he would face pricing pressure from SFBs and better to prepare accordingly. FYI, Mr. Nandkumar is a veteran of commercial vehicle finance and exited this biz reluctantly only during NBFC crisis of late 90s. I am sure he would build it again. For the next few years MFI will be a growth engine but it is better to focus on secured lending i.e. Gold, Vehicle and home finance in the long run

Really impressive result from Manappuram. I think the biggest take away is a note give in the investor presentation which says "Plans to raise funds from PE to achieve targeted growth in the business ". While it is not clear whether this is going to be done at the parent level or specifically for Asirvad at the subsidiary level - it is really interesting, as any fund raised at a parent level will give us the kind of valuation multiple a PE is ready to place on the listed entity and if this is done at Asirwad level then that is a clear sign of them listing this entity in the near future.

Having begun its diversification in 2014, the company is well set to reap the rewards from here on.”

What about asset quality ? I don’t see asset quality in results.

(Aravind) #661

Investor Presentation has it(only stand-alone figures). You can refer to it.

(Rajesh) #662

No meaning of seeking defaults in gold loan. Once they declare loan assets in other areas, they must declare defaults too. Without looking for NPAs , no meaning to asses profit loss account sheet of finance company. Any profit can be declared by playing on provisional coverage ratio.

Investor presentation has the NPA numbers:
