We have witnessed a healthy growth in PAT supported by yields improvement and reduction in cost to income ratio. Defying industry trends, our asset quality has shown a significant improvement over the quarter and we have continued to expand our retail book and onboard quality customers.
The Company is adequately capitalised maintaining capital adequacy ratio at 41.62%. CGCL maintains a strong liquidity position and we have even made prepayments to lenders to reduce cost of funds. CGCL’s ample liquidity will enable us to drive growth in the coming quarters. Over the quarter we have continued our successful adoption of technological initiatives to better serve our customers and improve operating performance.
With the Unlock guidelines in place, our goal is to ensure business continuity while keeping the interests of all our stakeholders in mind. Over the quarter we focused our efforts on improving collections, onboarding quality customers, and working closely with our customers to mitigate the crises together. We are not yet over with the Covid19 pandemic and during these unprecedented times, CGCL continues to support its customers, clients, employees, and communities using all possible avenues. “
