 Mumbai , May 6th, 2011: The country’s largest microfinance lender, SKS Microfinance Limited today announced an  aggressive provisioning policy while declaring its results for Q4 as well as the annual results for the fiscal 2010-11.

The provisioning is far more stringent than the norms recommended by policy guidelines laid down by the RBI, and results in the credit cost for the year rising to Rs 317cr for  FY11, compared to Rs Rs 51 cr in FY 10.

Commenting on the reasons for doing this, Mr S Dilliraj, CFO, SKS said, “We could have  merely followed  Provisioning  norms as per RBI prudential norms , which would have resulted in profit for Q4. However, we took a conscious decision to adopt  more stringent provisioning norms  in pursuance of our  sector leadership  role”

As a direct result of this provisioning, SKS declared a net loss of Rs 70 cr for the quarter, compared to a net profit of Rs 34 cr on a QoQ basis.

The company’s topline for the year, however, increased 32% to Rs 1279 cr, compared to Rs 959 cr in the previous fiscal. PAT for FY11 was Rs 111 cr, compared to Rs 174 cr the previous fiscal.

In spite of the provisioning, necessitated by the AP MF Act, the company’s financial foundations remain sound.

At the end of FY 11, SKS had a net worth of Rs 1781 cr, and a capital adequacy ratio of 45%. Cash and bank balances amount to Rs 558 cr

The company had welcomed the recommendations made by the Malegam Committee, which were recently adopted almost completely by the RBI, thereby providing a positive framework for the sector going forward especially the retention of the priority sector lending by MFI
