The consistency of our performance is a result of managing our business dynamically, and executing our strategy with greater rigor and discipline.

He further added, “This quarter performance has once again demonstrated that the company is on a sustained growth path. We are positive that the decision of RBI to cut rates coupled with a strong demand for affordable housing will enable us to deploy more capital thereby boosting growth in the coming quarters.”
The robust performance in quarter 2 comes as a result of several initiatives that has been embarked upon by the company in recent past.
Setting new trend in Retail Debt Market
•Created history in the Indian Capital markets by raising a record Rs 14,000 crore within one month from two public NCD issuances
· The first ever public issue of secured nonconvertible debentures was of Rs 4,000 crores wherein Rs 1,000 crore was the base issue size with a green shoe option of Rs 3,000 crores. The issue was oversubscribed 19 times on the base issue value which set a benchmark in the capital markets.
•The follow on public issue of secured nonconvertible debentures was of Rs 10,000 crore wherein the base issue size was Rs 2,000 crore along with a green shoe option of Rs 8,000 crore. The issue was oversubscribed 6.32 times on the base issue
• The NCD issue has not only established a strong yield curve for DHFL instruments in the market but will also reduce our total cost of borrowings that has come down from 9.90% in 30 September 2015 To 9.33% as of 30 September 2016
•The issuance has helped the company to diversify its borrowing profile and reduce dependency on wholesale borrowings particularly from banks. The share of bank borrowings in the total borrowings came down to 44% from 58% in Q2 FY15
Increase in promoter shareholding & Net Worth
· The promoters have infused Rs.375 cr towards 2.12 cr warrants in Q2 FY 17; Rs.125 cr was infused in march 2016
· Infusion has been done one year ahead of deadline date of 10th September 2017
· This reinforces the promoter’s long term commitment towards the company
· Promoter shareholding increased from 34.89% to 39.31%
· The company also raised Innovative Perpetual Debt of Rs.475 Cr during the quarter, aggregating to Rs.660.70 Cr to strengthen its capital structure
Enhancing Cost to Income efficiency
•The company has embarked upon a journey to rationalize its cost structures to improve its cost income ratio.
•The cost rationalization initiatives are being run across company on improving efficiencies and productivity of manpower through better use of technology
•As a result of the efforts on bringing cost efficiencies coupled with improved Net Interest Margins supported by reduction in cost of funds has helped the company to bring its cost income ratio down to 23.14% during quarter ended September 30, 2016 from 25.82% in corresponding quarter in previous year
Future of Housing Finance
•The sector has witnessed significant growth in the past one decade on the back of the steady growth in the economy, growing acceptability of home finance as an option for home purchase among consumers and rise in penetration of housing finance companies in various micro markets
•Securitization of home loan portfolio together with appropriate ratings and guarantee structures are imperative to support the growing resource needs of the financial system. Also, as a regulator of Housing Finance industry, the role of NHB is going to be extremely crucial in the evolution of the Housing Finance sector
•NHB may have to shift their focus from being merely refinancer, to that of a market-maker. As the debt market in India deepens, we foresee a very vibrant secondary mortgage market, which along with securitization; will be critical in taking care of the burgeoning demand for housing finance
•As we foresee “Specialization” as key driver in financial services with RBI paving the way for entry of specialized banking, the day when Mortgage Banks get recognized as one of the critical contributors to the overall finance ecosystem is not far
•In summing up, how well we structure the building blocks by assimilating these transformations in the socio economic fabric of the Nation will be crucial to ensure a self sustaining mortgage finance sector in our financial system and in turn play a pivotal role in economic growth
