Commenting on the results M G George Muthoot, Chairman stated, “At a time when pandemic has disrupted business activities across the globe, we with the support of our employees, customers and lenders have been able to continue excellence in our performance. Company could achieve a 59% YoY increase in profit after tax of Rs.841crs for the quarter. Our branches were completely shut during the month of April due to nationwide lockdown. To ensure business continuity we upscaled our digital platforms. We recorded four-fold jump in digital loan disbursals since then. To encourage digital usage, we are incentivizing our customers with a cashback scheme to service interest payments through our online platforms. With businesses resuming, we have witnessed surge in gold loans as it is the most convenient form of availing working capital for small business and traders to kickstart their businesses.”
Speaking on the occasion George Alexander Muthoot, Managing Director said, “Our disbursements during the quarter was lower on account of closure of branches in the month of April 2020 due to nationwide lockdown. Once the branches opened, we saw higher level of repayments than disbursements, probably, on account of restrictions in movement of people. However, we witnessed a significant increase in disbursements since June 2020 which continues in July and August 2020. As initially guided, we are looking forward to achieve a 15% growth in gold loan portfolio for FY 21.
