Weak asset quality, while the slippages in the new portfolio remains low: The Gross NPA ratio stood at 30.19% in Dec-21, vis-a-vis 34.57% in Mar-21 (32.79% in Mar-20). However, about 95% of the total NPAs are attributable to the discontinued portfolio, which largely consists of SME-related exposures. The new portfolio (recognized after March 2020) which is in the form of asset-backed lending, demonstrated healthy asset quality levels, with GNPA of about 2.44% as in Dec-21 (0.12% Mar-21). However, the rating is constrained by the low provisioning coverage on the legacy portfolio, given the exposures are largely in the form of unsecured lending. Solvency of the company remain weak with Net NPA/ Net worth at 90.74% as in Dec-21, while the same has improved from 147.42% in Mar-21 and 218.71% in Mar-20. Going forward, it will be crucial for the company to expedite the collections from the legacy portfolio while maintaining healthy asset quality levels of the incremental new portfolio.

SoftLogic Group's appeal for further cash
This would require SoftLogic Group raise further cash calls from group companies such as Softlogic Capital PLC and Softlogic Holdings PLC.

Its interesting to see successful Softlogic group meet the funding requirement without the support of the minority shareholders as investors current appetite for the Finance sector is historically low due to current economic crisis in the country.
