DHFL Friday said it is delaying announcement of quarterly results due to certain unforeseen issues, including non-availability of a few directors for participation in meetings of the audit committee and the board for approving the results.
The non-banking finance company has been facing liquidity crisis and has recently defaulted on its repayment obligations.
The company has resorted to various modes of fund mop-up including selling stake in subsidiary firms to meet its debt obligations.
