Commenting on the results and financial performance, Mr. Vishal Kampani, Managing Director, JM Financial Group, said,

“The Indian economy witnessed a challenging period during the third quarter as it had to cautiously manoeuvre through the effects of Demonetisation. While this will have a near-term impact on the economy, the long term growth tailwinds remain intact.

The Group’s fund based business, primarily consisting of developer financing, was resilient. Decline in interest rates and passing of RERA (Real Estate Regulatory Act) will augur well for organised players like us to gain market share. We have made an application to NHB for our foray into housing finance business with a focus on affordable housing and continue to bolster our efforts in this space. Our ARC business successfully acquired a large NPA account of a real estate developer. Furthermore, we see strong pipeline of opportunities in the ARC space driven by RBI’s thrust on banks to significantly reduce their NPAs over the coming year. 

Our strong brand and established presence in the Investment banking business continued to generate good traction in Capital Markets & M&A transactions”

Open product architecture through combination of in-house offerings and third party products positioned JM Financial as “Unbiased trusted advisor” to the clients.

This group is supported by technical and fundamental research teams and derivative strategists who generate Investment and Trading Ideas. We have presence in 269 locations spread across 114 cities through a network of branches and franchisees.


Inspite of heightened volatility in the equity markets on back of both local and global events, domestic funds have continued to see strong increase in inflows and this trend should augur well for the Indian Capital Markets.  While FII inflows may remain subdued in the near term, our on-ground presence in New York, Singapore and Mauritius is helping in strengthening our relationships with global investors.   Our strategy of further expanding our research coverage across sectors and companies continues unabated.


In the Distribution business, we have a large network of over 8,300 active Independent Financial Distributors (IFDs) who distribute various financial products across the country. During the quarter, we helped corporates mobilise more than Rs. 820 crore in fixed deposit schemes and fixed income products.

Fund based business:

The lending book of JM Financial Products stood at Rs. 4,088 crore as on December 31, 2016. Out of the said lending book, the Corporate and capital market lending book stood at Rs. 2,174 crore and the real estate lending at   Rs. 1,914 crore.


During the quarter, in IPO financing business, we funded 5 IPO’s wherein the aggregate amount of funding was around Rs.5,306 crore.


The lending book of JM Financial Credit Solutions stood at Rs. 4,832 crore as on December 31, 2016 which largely comprises of real estate lending book. Our commercial real estate funding focus is on Tier - 1 cities, viz., Mumbai, Thane, Pune, Bangalore, Chennai and Hyderabad. We plan to selectively enter into new geographies to expand our business. In light of the prevailing stress in the economy, we have been extremely selective and continue to remain focused on the asset quality.


We continued our efforts of diversifying our sources and maturities for our borrowing profile. Our long term borrowing as a proportion of total borrowing stood at approximately 44 % on December 31, 2016.


During the quarter, the asset reconstruction business actively participated in several NPA auction processes announced by Banks/NBFCs and bids were submitted for several new and existing accounts. We concluded four deals during the quarter with one fresh acquisition and three deals as part of debt aggregation process. Our acquisition focus remains on large corporate accounts with potential of restructuring and revival. During the quarter, the Asset Reconstruction Business reported higher recoveries than previous two quarters from existing accounts and major recoveries achieved from restructuring of corporate accounts.


As per RBI’s recent Financial Stability report, the GNPA ratio of Banks increased to 9.1% in September 2016 from 7.8% in March 2016 pushing the overall Stressed Advances Ratio to 12.3% from 11.5%. The large borrowers registered significant deterioration in their asset quality. In view of the same, we expect increased NPA sale activity in the coming quarters.


In order to improve the framework for sale of stressed assets, the Reserve Bank of India in September 2016 issued a new guideline on Sale of Stressed Assets by Banks. The guideline lays down mechanism for timely identification of stressed accounts and appropriate actions to ensure there is low vintage of NPAs, higher provisioning on SRs by banks and better price realisation for banks. With effect from April 1, 2017 if a bank has invested in more than 50% of security receipts created against the sale of its own stressed assets, it has to set aside provision which is higher of Net Asset Value declared by Securitisation Companies / Reconstruction companies or underlying loans, assuming that the loans notionally continued in the books of the Bank as NPA. From April 1, 2018, the above threshold of 50% will stand reduced to 10%. On account of these guidelines, we expect banks to move from security receipt based sell down to cash based sell down.


The effective implementation of the Insolvency and Bankruptcy code and regulatory changes prompted by RBI will aid faster resolution for NPAs and augurs well for ARCs.
