Commenting on the Company's performance for Q1FY2019-20, Mr. Jayendra Patel, Vice Chairman & Managing Director, Arman Financial Services said, "Despite the ongoing liquidity tightening and other macroeconomic headwinds, Arman delivered a strong all-round performance in the first quarter, driven by robust growth in our loan book combined with improvement in NIM, cost-to-income ratio and asset quality. This was the first quarter of Indian Accounting Standard (IndAS) implementation, which resulted in several notional changes in the Financials compared to the previous iGAAP Standards. Growth in our loan assets was characterised by a healthy jump across all 3 of our lending segments. Further, we enhanced our geographic presence by launching 41 new branches during the quarter as a part of our FY20 expansion strategy.

Positive ALM, superior asset quality and a strong performance track record have helped us keep our finance costs in check and maintain adequate liquidity, despite the tough liquidity conditions faced by the NBFC sector in general. Disciplined lending backed by a rigorous credit appraisal and collection model have enabled us to keep our credit costs under control. Our consolidated Debt-Equity Ratio stood at 4.58:1, which provides us sufficient capital to drive growth in the current year. Moving forward, our endeavour is to continue our growth momentum, while exercising prudence in lending and maintaining adequate liquidity. We will closely monitor rural macroeconomic indicators and make all necessary adjustments to protect asset quality."
