Mumbai, May 6, 2024:  Grihum Housing Finance Limited (formerly Poonawalla Housing Finance Limited) has posted a strong performance for Q4 and FY24.

The Company delivered its highest ever organic disbursement of ₹ 2,914 Cr for FY24, up 26% YoY, reaffirming its commitment to assisting self-made individuals (SMIs) nationwide in fulfilling their dream of home ownership. Also, it registered its highest ever yearly PAT of ₹ 140 crore, jumping 21% YoY and ₹ 46 crore for the quarter, up by 24% QoQ.

The Company attributed its improved organic disbursements to four factors. The scale of business increased due to expansion of distribution and sourcing channels. Twenty-eight branches were added in FY24, taking the total number of Grihum’s branches nationally to 210. Next, Grihum focussed on key markets through direct and digital sourcing. Finally, the Company invested into frontline business teams throughout the year.

Grihum’s Asset Under Management (AUM) stands at ₹ 8,277 Cr, a 32% jump YoY and 9% QoQ. Asset Quality remained stable with a Gross NPA ratio at 0.95% and Net NPA at 0.56%. The Company has been delivering AUM growth in the range of 30% quarter on quarter.

The Company’s revenue grew by 46% YoY and 7% QoQ, totalling up to ₹ 1,046 Cr for the year and ₹ 290 Cr for the quarter. Net Interest Margin (NIM) was at 8.3%, while the efficient liability franchise had an average CoB of 8.1% for FY24 with more than 30 liability relationships, including large Mutual Funds.

Grihum raised fresh equity of ₹ 1,038 Cr during FY24 and its net worth has risen to ₹ 2,390 Cr, up by 98% YoY and 30% QoQ. Its Capital Adequacy Ratio stood at 47.31% while the liquidity buffer is ₹ 2,443 Cr. 

The capital was raised in two tranches during the year from TPG, which has strengthened Grihum’s balance sheet and led to the moderation of leverage ratio to 2.4x. This provides the Company headroom for growth for the next 24-36 months without any fresh capital requirements in the business. The funds have helped Grihum focus on digital transformation to bring further efficiency in its business operations.
