Revenues grew by 39.7% YoY to ₹147.6 crore in Q2FY23, led by strong AUM growth in the mutual fund business & 80% year-on-year growth in the emerging insurance segment. The equity mix in overall AUM improved by 343 bps to 94.1% YoY which aided growth in total revenue. In H1FY2023, revenue is up by 41.2% to ₹276 crore.
EBITDA & Margins
Operating profit grew by 58.4% YoY to ₹40.2 crore. Operating profit growth was higher than revenue growth led by operating leverage.
Profit After Tax
Profit After Tax (PAT) grew by 41.1% YoY to ₹27.6 crore. PAT growth was lower than operating profit growth, led by higher depreciation due to the amortisation of payment for acquiring MF Assets of Karvy in November 2021 & lower other income. In H1FY2023, PAT is up by 33.9% YoY to ₹47.0 crore.
Gross flows from SIPs were the highest in the Company’s history at ₹1,324 crore in Q2FY23. Monthly SIPs flow as of September 2022 stood at ₹ 456 crore, and the Company’s market share increased from 3.0% in September-2021 to 3.5% in September-2022. Given the strong traction on SIPs, Prudent expects gross flow from SIPs of ₹ 5200 crore in FY23, which is 13% of the FY23 opening AUM, providing them a strong visibility of growth.
The next phase of the Company’s growth will continue to be fuelled by its strategy of empanelling more MFDs and its plan to focus on a multi-product distribution platform.
Mr Sanjay Shah, Chairman and Managing Director, commented on the results, and said, “The 2nd Quarter of FY2023 has been another quarter where Prudent has witnessed substantial growth in revenue and profitability. Healthy cash flows led to the acquisition of Mutual Fund AUM of Karvy Stock Broking Limited in an all-cash deal in FY2022. On July 22, we continued our inorganic expansion by signing a term sheet to acquire MF AUM of iFast Financial India Private Limited.”
Talking about the first half of the current fiscal, Mr Sanjay Shah added, “The first half of FY2023 has been promising, with revenue up by 41.2% to ₹276 crore. At the same time, profit after tax (PAT) is up by 33.9% YoY to ₹ 47.0 crore. We are steadily growing our market share, with more than 14.58 lakh clients in September 2022. Along with profitability, the strength of our cash flow generation is bolstering our capacity to proliferate moving forward. We anticipate a higher inflow of funds and a steady rise in our AUM in the upcoming quarters due to the economy’s broad-based recovery. Our MF Assets are growing at double the rate of the industry on back of our organic and inorganic strength.”
