Piramal Enterprises has posted consolidated net profit of Rs 509 crore in the quarter ended June 30 (Q1FY24), led by gain of Rs 855 cr on sale of stake in Shriram Finance.

The non-banking finance company had posted a net profit of Rs 8,155 crore in Q1FY23. Its net interest income (NII) declined by 17 per cent year-on-year (YoY) basis to Rs 891 crore in Q1FY24 from Rs 1,069 crore in Q1FY23.

Dwelling on NII trend, Jairam Sridharan, managing director, Piramal Capital & Housing Finance said the NII declined due to rise in share of non-earning assets on issuance of Security Receipts worth Rs 2,004 crore. The interest expenses also went up, Sridharan added.
