HBFC in 2002 - In the light of World Bank Report “Given its legacy as a DFI, attempts to restructure HBFC as a commercially operating housing finance institution are not promising. Rather HBFC might focus on becoming an efficient manager of Government programmes of social housing products, which would still require a major upgrading of its internal corporate environment. ” “Given the low rate of provisioning HBFC may be in situation economically equivalent to bankruptcy. ” These were the observations of World Bank in its 2002 Report, “A Housing Finance System for Pakistan – Issues and Options”, which further said: 4
In World Bank’s Report of 2002 …. 1 • Sinception, solo source of fund has been State Bank of Pakistan (SBP). New funding was suspended by SBP in 1994, and new credit lines were being rolled over. The rollover was also stopped in 2002 -3, but Corporation was not prepared for seeking market based funding, • HBFC is more an administrative extension of the Government rather than a real financial institution, • Flawed charter, poor governance with administrative and political interference 5
In World Bank’s Report of 2002 …. 2 • It is burdened by a high proportion of bad loans in its portfolio with little hope of recovery. • A vast majority (98%) of credit are overdue for more than 3 years (a very substantial accounts are over 12 years). Recovery prospects are slim or null. State Bank of Pakistan Inspection Report 2005: • 60% of the portfolio is NPL • Another 30% is potential NPL 6
HBFC in 2007 - In IFC/CMHC Report • CMHC reported that, HBFC has the ability to turn around the table. It stated in its report submitted to the Government that: – “HBFC has the potential to succeed as a commercial housing finance company”; – “HBFC has a good understanding of its mission and its environment” • IFC/World Bank group is considering taking equity stake in HBFC 7
HBFC as on January 2005
Situation Prior To 2005 • Deteriorated financial health and poor loan accounting system. • As a matter of fact, HBFC was running as a loosing concern. • It’s books of accounts were not properly maintained. Its annual accounts were carrying qualification on account of “nonreconciliation” from External Auditors since 1982, for about 24 years. (“Non Reconciliation” issue first surfaced in 1972). • Similarly, there was no concept of cost of fund, financial intermediation cost and cost of lending. • During the year 2004 negative cash flow was to the tune of Rs 2. 5 billion. Had the situation continued for another two years, then by the end of year 2006 HBFC would have been a bankrupt organization.
Situation Prior To 2005…contd. • About Rs 12 billion was in NPLs, and another Rs 6 billion was potential NPLs. Thus, the actual and potential NPLs of Rs 18 billion which was about 80% of total Balance Sheet. • Huge income tax was being paid on income that was not earned. • Issue of un-settled insurance claims from SLIC against 590 pending death cases was causing finance suffering for both HBFC and its customers. • Absence of Systems & Procedures, and lack of comprehensive loan origination, processing and accounting systems (need for software, hardware and computer skills). • Absence of any human resource development program. • Central Bank’s regulation and supervision was suspended in the year 2002 -3 (and was recommenced in 2005 at the request of the new Management).
