Mahindra & Mahindra Financial Services has reported a 34 per cent rise in net profit at ₹269 crore for the quarter ending June 30, 2018, on the back of improved asset quality and positive rural sentiments. The company’s net profit in the year-ago period was ₹201.36 crore.

Total income during the first quarter of the fiscal stood at ₹1,940 crore, up 29 per cent from ₹1,508 crore during the corresponding quarter of last year.

Ramesh Iyer, Vice-Chairman and Managing Director, M&M Financial Services, told BusinessLine: “Rural sentiment is holding up positive with a better-than-expected monsoon.

“Besides, the collections have improved and NPAs, which generally go up in the first quarter, remained at the same levels and this has happened after a really long time. Also, the efficiency in collection has gone up.”

M&M Financial, which has four subsidiaries across rural housing, asset management and insurance broking, is largely focused on the rural and semi-urban sector through tractor financing. It also offers fixed deposits and loans to SMEs.

The company’s board has approved raising funds by way of public issue of secured and/or unsecured non-convertible debentures up to ₹10,000 crore in one or more tranches.
