There has been significant improvement in the performance of the company over the previous year due to buoyant capital market, growth in the retail financing business and aggressive recovery of the non performing assets.

KMFL is planning to foray into insurance business after satisfying the norms laid down by RBI. In the current year the company has added asset reconstruction division (ARD) which will be assigned to recover the defaulted amount of other corporates. This business will help the company to see growth in its business considering the huge non performing assets in the banking system.

The company's subsidiaries Kotak Mahindra Capital Company (KMCC), Kotak Mahindra Primus (KMP). Kotak Mahindra Asset Management Company (KMAMC) and Matrix Information Services have also performed well during the year.

At the current market price of Rs 72.8, KMFL is trading at Price/Book value ratio of 0.7 times. In the past, the company has enjoyed Price/Book value ratio in the range of 1-3 times. Recently the company has also declared rights in the ratio of 1:4.
