Commenting on the financial results, Mr. Hemant Kanoria, Chairman, Srei, said: “The continuing spate of the pandemic has disrupted businesses and dislocated people. It was expected that the normalcy will resume by August, however, now it seems that this spell will go on till December, for sure. It is an undeniable fact that the economy has been severely affected, specially the MSMEs and the infrastructure sector. The Reserve Bank of India (“RBI”) and the government have been working out many solutions, but it will definitely take time for any of them to have the desired effect. It is, therefore, difficult to project any future plans with certainty. The strategy of our company, at present, is to alleviate pains of our customers, manage liquidity and focus on the core business of equipment finance, while improving efficiency and rationalising cost.
We have recently raised funds from KfW IPEX-Bank of Germany, demonstrating our ability to raise resources from reputed international investors and global development finance institutions. We will continue to explore opportunities that will help us sustain our business growth and create value for all our stakeholders.”
