Speaking on the DBS Bank India results for FY22-23, Surojit Shome, Managing Director & Chief Executive Officer, DBS Bank India, said, “During FY22-23, we substantially completed the integration of the business that was acquired through the amalgamation of the erstwhile Lakshmi Vilas Bank. The outlays on the multi-dimensional integration process across the technology platform, branch network and people were reflected in elevated one-time and ongoing costs in this fiscal. Despite that, overall performance parameters were better than the previous year with robust growth across all our businesses as we continued to make meaningful strides towards improving our business momentum, asset quality, and depth of our talent. Our differentiated proposition of an expanded physical network, overlayed with strong digital capabilities will allow us to significantly scale our SME and consumer businesses, strengthen our large corporate franchise to improve overall financial performance by leveraging our platform more effectively.”
