3. The NBFC, SBFC Finance has a comprehensive credit assessment and risk management framework to identify, monitor and manage risks inherent in its operations.

Risk factors to watch out in the IPO:


1. During the fiscal, the majority of the MSME loans sanctioned were to self-employed customers. Self-employed customers and MSMEs are often considered to be high-risk customers and any default on their end would adversely affect the business operations.


2. SBFC relies on the information given by customers and some third-party providers to determine their creditworthiness. Any errors or misinformation may affect the company’s ability to judge the creditworthiness of the customers.


3. The portfolio of SBFC Finance may be impacted if it has high amounts of NPA and they are unable to provide for such NPA.


4. As the entity is in the lending business, they require a huge amount of capital for its operations. Any disruptions in the flow of capital can impact the business.


5. The NBFC’s net interest income could be affected if there is any volatility in interest rates for both lending and treasury operations.
