"Q3FY22 was near-normal quarter for the Bank with strong growth seen in advances, disbursements and deposits across all businesses and customer segments supported by a good festive season. The customer cashflows continue to improve supporting recovery trends and asset quality in the quarter.", AU Small Finance said in its provisional business update.
On a gross advances basis, the bank witnessed a growth of 11.9 per cent QoQ (+33.4 per cent YoY). The bank saw a significant improvement in the overall business environment, which resulted in strong disbursements. In Q3FY22, disbursements were up 59 per cent QoQ (+33 per cent YoY) at Rs 8,152 crore. Disbursements included ECLGS of Rs 48 crore in Q3FY22. The bank is witnessing strong traction in the Credit Cards business.
AU Small Finance Bank also posted a robust growth in advances, led by strong disbursements, due to an overall improvement in the business environment. Deposit growth too remains strong, led by robust CASA growth, resulting in a further improvement in CASA ratio. On the asset quality front, collection efficiency remains strong (in excess of 100 per cent), which is likely to result in an improvement in asset quality ratios, providing further comfort, Motilal Financial Services said in update.
