IndoStar Capital Finance, an NBFC, has completed the acquisition of the CV-financing business of India Infoline Finance (IIFL). The deal is effective March 31, 2019.

Retail lending

Indostar Capital, promoted by the Everstone Group in 2011, initially started a corporate lending business. Since 2015, Indostar has been building its retail lending business, which accelerated last year with the setting up of CV financing and affordable housing finance businesses.

R Sridhar, Executive Vice-Chairman and CEO, IndoStar Capital, said in a statement that the completion of “this instant profit-accretive transaction in a very short period of time” would catapult IndoStar as a leading player in the CV financing space.

He added it would also help in building a diversified profitable lending book with a product mix comprising CV finance, corporate lending, SME business loans, and affordable housing loans.
