Financial Status:

- Interest Income: There was an increase in interest income by 18% for the quarter ended December 31, 2023, compared to the same quarter in 2022. Year-to-date (YTD) interest income grew by 64%.
- Interest Expenses: Interest expenses rose by 28% for the quarter ended December 31, 2023, compared to the same quarter in 2022. YTD interest expenses increased by 129%.

Financial Ratios:
 - Net assets per share (LKR): Increased from 0.35 in 2022 to 0.37 in 2023.
 - Debt/equity ratio (times): Decreased from 0.50 in 2022 to 0.44 in 2023.
 - Interest cover ratio (times): Improved from 1.53 in 2022 to 1.62 in 2023.
 - Liquid asset ratio (times): There was a significant decrease from 187 in 2022 to 25.74 in 2023.

Future Outlook:
- Regulatory Compliance:SMB Finance PLC was licensed under the Finance Business Act as an LFC (Licensed Finance Company) effective from December 1, 2022, indicating compliance with regulatory requirements.
- Restrictions: The company faced restrictions on lending, deposits, and offering maximum interest rates due to non-compliance with regulatory capital requirements and/or adherence to the Masterplan. Acceptance of new deposits was frozen as of August 12, 2022.
- Operational Segments: SMB Finance PLC operates in segments including Leasing, Loans, Treasury, and Money Brokering, which suggests a diversified business model that could impact future performance.
- Investments: Remaining funds are invested in bank fixed deposits, which could provide a stable income source and liquidity.

The financial data indicates that SMB Finance PLC has experienced growth in interest income, although this has been accompanied by a significant increase in interest expenses. The improvement in financial ratios such as the interest cover ratio and a decrease in the debt/equity ratio could be seen as positive indicators of financial health. However, the substantial drop in the liquid asset ratio may raise concerns about liquidity.

The future outlook for SMB Finance PLC will likely be influenced by its ability to navigate regulatory challenges, manage its diversified operations effectively, and maintain financial stability amidst the macroeconomic conditions described in the context.
