India’s leading housing financier HDFC on Friday reported a 42.43 per cent year-on-year growth in standalone net profit at Rs 3,179.83 for January-March quarter of FY21 (Q4FY21). This compares with profit of Rs 2,232.5 crore reported in the previous year period (Q4FY20).
On a quarterly basis, the profit rose 8.6 per cent from Rs 2,925.8 crore reported in Q3FY21.
HDFC’s Board also approved re-appointment of Keki M. Mistry as the managing director (MD) of the Corporation for a period of three years with effect from May 7, 2021. Besides, it has recommended a final dividend of Rs 23 per equity share for FY21, compared to Rs 21 per equity share in the previous year.
Its profit before tax (PBT), meanwhile, increased a whopping 45.73 per cent YoY to Rs 3,923.94 crore from Rs 2,692.44 crore.
For the full fiscal of 2020-21, its reported PBT stood at Rs 14,815 crore, while the reported profit after tax was Rs 12,027 crore.
"The profit numbers for the year ended March 31, 2021 are not comparable with that of the previous year. In the previous year, the Corporation had recorded a fair value gain consequent to the merger of GRUH Finance Limited with Bandhan Bank, amounting to Rs 9,020 crore," the corporation said in its statement.
It added: To facilitate a like-for-like comparison of the financials, after adjusting for profit on sale of investments, dividend, fair value adjustments, income on assigned loans, charge for employee stock options and provisions, the adjusted profit before tax for FY21 stood at Rs 13,823 crore compared to Rs 11,586 crore, up 19 per cent YoY.
The Mumbai-based mortgage lender’s revenue, however, contracted 2 per cent on year from Rs 11,975.72 crore in Q4FY20 to Rs 11,697.1 crore during the period under study.
