ESAF Small Finance Bank IPO Risk Factors:
ESAF Small Finance Bank is significantly dependent on Micro Loans and any adverse developments in the microfinance sector could adversely affect its business.
ESAF Small Finance Bank’s Micro Loans and some of its retail loans are unsecured and are at a higher credit risk than secured loans because they are not supported by collateral. Any failure to recover the full amount of principal and interest on unsecured advances given to its customers could adversely affect its business.
ESAF Small Finance Bank incurs significant operating expenses and any increase in these operating expenses without a corresponding increase in its Net Interest Income and other income combined will adversely affect its financial condition.
ESAF Small Finance Bank business correspondents (which include ESMACO, a Promoter Group and Group Entity, and Lahanti, a Group Entity) have sourced the majority of its advances. All of our Business correspondents work for it on a non-exclusive basis. If any of its business correspondents and in particular ESMACO prefer to promote its competitors’ loans over its loans or the agreements between them are terminated or not renewed, it would adversely affect its business.
ESAF Small Finance Bank could be subject to various sanctions and penalties by the RBI for failing to comply with the requirement to list the Equity Shares on a stock exchange in India before July 31, 2021. RBI may take regulatory action against it in the future.
ESAF Small Finance Bank is in non-compliance with certain Risk Based Supervision (“RBS”) Tranche III requirements and if the RBI imposes penalties on it for this non-compliance, it could adversely affect its reputation and business
