Summary of consolidated results is given in Annexure A.
Bajaj Finance Limited and Bajaj Allianz General Insurance Limited have recorded their second successive highest annual profit after tax; so did Bajaj Finserv Limited on a consolidated basis.
A synopsis on the performance of the individual companies is given below:
Despite relatively sluggish credit demand across the country, BFL has performed extraordinarily well and has been able to continue the stellar growth that it has been delivering over the past few years.
Summary of financial results is given in Annexure B.
The conditions remain tough in the general insurance industry. Despite this, BAGIC has performed well. BAGIC is ranked 2nd among all private sector general insurers in terms of its top-line and 1st in profits.
Summary of financial results and key ratios is given in Annexure C.
BALIC’s growth has been positive, though lower than the industry. With savings rates being lower than the historical peaks, growth has tended to favour bank-sponsored insurance companies who have a natural advantage of bundling insurance with their loan and savings products through bancassurance. Even so, BALIC has performed creditably.
Summary of financial results is given in Annexure D.
Annexure B – Summary financial results of BFL
Annexure C – Summary financial results of BAGIC
