TVS Holdings Makes Big Move in Consumer Finance with Home Credit India Acquisition

TVS Holdings Limited, the investment arm of the renowned Indian conglomerate TVS Group, has announced a significant move that will reshape its presence in the financial services sector. The company has signed an agreement to acquire an 80.74% equity stake in Home Credit India Finance Private Limited for Rs 554 crore. This strategic acquisition marks TVS Holdings' commitment to becoming a prominent player in the ever-growing consumer finance market in India.

                                            

The remaining 19.26% stake in Home Credit India will be purchased by Premji Invest, a leading investment firm, and its associates. Following the signing of a sale and purchase agreement, TVS Holdings and Home Credit India will seek necessary regulatory approvals from the Competition Commission of India (CCI) and the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) to finalize the transaction.

 

This acquisition aligns perfectly with TVS Holdings Group's long-term vision of playing a leading role in expanding financial inclusion across India. Home Credit India, established in 2012, is a subsidiary of the international Home Credit Group, a well-regarded consumer finance provider with operations in multiple countries. Since its entry into the Indian market, Home Credit India has catered to over 1.6 crore customers through both online and offline channels. As of March 31, 2024, the company boasts a strong position in the consumer financing sector, with Assets Under Management (AUM) exceeding Rs 5,535 crore.

 

In a statement released by TVS Holdings, the company highlighted the potential synergies that this acquisition presents. These synergies include enhanced collection capabilities, cost-efficiencies, leveraging in-house digital and analytics expertise, and cross-selling opportunities. Importantly, the announcement emphasized that Home Credit India will continue to operate as a subsidiary of TVS Holdings, maintaining its distinct brand identity and focus on its established customer segment. At the same time, Home Credit will benefit from the resources and support offered by the TVS Holdings Group.

 

Commenting on this development, Sudarshan Venu, Managing Director of TVS Holdings, expressed his optimism about the future. He stated, "Financial services represent a huge opportunity as this growth unfolds. Home Credit is a significant player in consumer financing with a lot of potential. Together with TVS Credit, the Group will now have a lending book of approximately Rs 31,000 Crore, taking us closer to our book-size goal of Rs. 50,000 Cr in the next three years. Collectively, we will now be serving 3 crore financial services customers across more than 90,000 touch points pan India."

 

Radek Pluhar, the CEO of Home Credit Group, echoed this sentiment, acknowledging the long-standing presence of Home Credit India within the group. He remarked, "Home Credit India is a longstanding member of the Home Credit family. Since launching in the market over a decade ago, we have served millions of Indian customers and empowered local consumers with our innovative and responsible financial products. In addition, we have engaged millions of Indians nationwide to help improve their financial literacy."

 

This strategic move by TVS Holdings comes at a time when the company is experiencing positive financial growth. The company's consolidated net profit for the quarter ending March 2024 witnessed a significant 43% year-on-year increase to Rs 464 crore. Revenue from operations also rose, reaching Rs 10,125 crore compared to Rs 8,523 crore in the previous year. TVS Holdings' financial strength positions them well to support the continued growth and expansion of Home Credit India.

 

The TVS Holdings acquisition of Home Credit India signifies a major development in the Indian consumer finance landscape. This strategic move strengthens TVS Holdings' presence
