Established in 1988, PNB Housing Finance is the fourth largest housing finance company in India in terms of Loan Assets (Rs 62255 cr as of March 31, 2021), and the second largest in deposits (INR Rs 17129 cr as of March 31, 2021). Favourable demographics, rising urbanization, lower interest rates, continued improvement in housing affordability and supportive government policies are promoting growth across the industry which is expected to continue into the near future.
The key objective of raising capital is to augment capital adequacy, reduce gearing and accelerate growth with a focus on retail housing including self-employed and affordable housing loans such as the Unnati segment. Assuming full capital infusion (including warrants) and no other change to the March 31, 2021 financials, the capital adequacy ratio of the Company as of March 31, 2021 would increase from 18.7% to over 28% and gearing as of March 31, 2021 will decline from 6.7x to less than 5x.
Hardayal Prasad, Managing Director and CEO of PNB Housing Finance, said, “This fund raise, and Carlyle’s continued support, puts us in a strong position to benefit from the growing opportunities in the housing finance sector including in the affordable housing loans and self-employed segments, where we have developed differentiated capabilities in terms of distribution, underwriting and customer service. The current fund raise and planned strengthening of the Board and management team will enable us to accelerate our strategic priorities, including further expanding our footprint, driving the Company’s digitalization, improving our operating model and customer engagement.”
