服务低收入技工,印度房产抵押网贷平台获千万融资

本周,线上房产抵押贷款服务提供商Shubham Housing宣布获得了一笔4800万美元的D轮融资,领投方为知名科技巨头威普罗公司,参投方包括此前曾投资过该公司的Helion Venture Partners和Elevar Equity两家风投。

据悉,Shubham Housing公司成立于2010年,主要为消费者提供最多15年期限的零售房屋贷款服务。Shubham公司已经构建一套自动化房贷承保和风险管理流程,也成为了一家领先的经济适用房贷款服务提供商。不过,该公司的重点服务对象是一些低收入的技术工人,他们通常会因为没有正式的收入证明而难以从银行获得贷款。

Shubham Housing Development Finance Co., which provides housing loans to families with informal incomes, has raised Rs305 crore in a series D round of funding, a senior company executive said.

The funding round was led by PremjiInvest, the family investment arm of Wipro chairman and billionaire Azim Premji, and also saw participation from existing investors Helion Venture Partners and Elevar Equity. This round also saw the exit of Accion’s Frontier Investment Group and Saama Capital.

“The investors have infused Rs235 crore directly into Shubham, while PremjiInvest has further given Rs70 crore to offer an exit to Accion Frontier and Saama Capital,” said Sanjay Chaturvedi, chief executive of Shubham Housing.

Helion Advisors and Elevar Equity infused Rs10 crore each into the company, while the rest Rs215 crore came from PremjiInvest, he said.

In September, Mint reported that PremjiInvest was in advanced talks to invest Rs225 crore in the company.

As part of this deal, Rahul Garg, partner at PremjiInvest, will join the Shubham Housing board.

“We fully support the promoters in their endeavour to provide affordable housing solutions for the marginalized sections of society. This is also aligned with the government’s stated objective of ‘Housing for All’,” said Garg.

Founded by Sanjay Chaturvedi and Ajay Oak, Shubham Housing had raised $1 million each from Helion Advisors and Elevar Equity in 2010. It further raised $2 million each in a series B round from Accion’s Frontier Investment Group, Saama Capital, Helion Advisors and Elevar Equity in 2012. In 2014, Shubham Housing raised $20 million (Rs120 crore) in a series C round led by Motilal Oswal Private Equity Advisors Pvt. Ltd.

Investment bank Avendus Capital advised Shubham Housing on the deal.

Shubham Housing wants to expand its loan book to Rs6,000 crore by 2021, from the current Rs1,000 crore, Chaturvedi said.

In the first nine months of the current fiscal year, the company clocked revenue of Rs125 crore and expects to close the year with revenue of Rs175 crore, he said. In fiscal 2017, Shubham’s revenue was Rs150 crore.

While the company’s profitability suffered last year due to demonetization, which resulted in higher delinquencies and regulatory norms requiring higher provisions, Chaturvedi expects the company’s profitability to jump significantly from next year.

“In the long-run, demonetization will be useful because as people move from informal to formal income, it becomes easier for companies to assess their creditworthiness,” he said.

The affordable housing space has witnessed a spurt after the government proposed a raft of incentives. The incentives include infrastructure status for affordable housing, interest subvention for housing loans and increase in allocation for the governnment’s Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana housing scheme from Rs15,000 crore to Rs23,000 crore.

“Last budget was almost the budget of affordable housing. I believe our segment is sitting on a place where there are very favourable tailwinds,” said Chaturvedi.
