Our gold loan portfolio crossed Rs 50,000 cr., the total revenue for the year crossed Rs 10,000 cr., profit before tax for the year crossed Rs 5,000 cr. and net worth crossed Rs 15,000 cr., all such landmarks being achieved for the first time in company's history. During the last decade since our IPO, we believe that we have been able to create significant value additions for all our stakeholders at different levels. Being the market leader in our industry we are resolutely confident of continuing our journey in this direction in future too. Following our track record of consistent dividend payout, we declared a dividend of Rs 20 per share for the financial year 2020-21 involving a total payout of Rs 802 cr. in April 2021."

Speaking on the same, George Alexander Muthoot, the managing director of Muthoot Finance, has said that: "We are glad to announce that consolidated loan assets of the group grew by 24% at Rs 58,280 cr. during FY21 as against last year of Rs 46,871 cr.
