Risks:

Primarily focused on used vehicle financing

As can be seen from table below, the company primarily provides finance for used commercial vehicles, cars, and tractors. The used vehicle business can be significantly impacted if the government came up with new rules and regulation seeing rising pollution. The new rules can be in form of factors related to tighter regulation of tailpipe emissions of air pollutants, disposal of vehicle in shorter time frame, etc.

Majority of business operations involve mid to low-income customers

SK Finance target clients are from rural and semi urban areas. They attract clients of mid to low-income customers, predominantly self-employed, unbanked individuals with limited access to organized lending channels. The ratio of new to credit (NTC) consumer hold significant portion as can be seen from table provided.

Customers living in rural and semi-urban areas are less financially strong and have no previous credit history than corporate borrowers. This makes them among the first to become financially restricted in the event of an economic downturn.

Inability to recover outstanding amount

The vehicles bought by consumer are hypothecated on the company’s name, so legally 100% of the loans disbursed are secured. In case the customer defaults and company take possession of the (used / new) vehicle, wear and tear during the loan cycle time, deterioration of value over time, inappropriate resale value may not lead them to recover full amount.

The loan-to-value ratios are broken down by category in the following table.

AUM concentration amount states

As per the prospectus, 64% of their branches are located in western India's Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, and Gujarat. Branches concentration lead to majority of AUM coming from these three states. As can be seen from table below, the concentration was highly skewed to three states earlier. The percentage has come down but the concentration of UAM is still cornered.

As of December 31, 2023 As of March 31, 2021

Sensitivity to interest rate & credit rating

Since they are into lending business, they have to walk on thin rope to yield profit and get healthy margin while giving out loans to customers. If due to economic downturn, customer start to default, which will hit the cash flow and profits directly, which can further dent their credit rating and borrowing cost at company level.

Dependence on Direct selling agents

Company has significant reliance on direct selling agents as majority of total disbursed amount is sourced through DSAs. As can be seen from table below in early nine month of FY23, 55% of total disbursed mount was sourced through selling agents.
