Speaking about the results Ramnath Krishnan, Managing Director & Group CEO of ICRA, stated, “The year 2023 at ICRA was all about setting revolutionary paradigms and unlocking value across businesses. The numbers reflect our commitment to building a diversified, technology-led, credible organization.”

“The overall growth in bond issuances, bank credit, and the securitization market had a positive bearing on ICRA Ratings. In contrast, increased demand for research and analytical services continued to drive growth in ICRA Analytics. ICRA has continued to invest in its people and technology to drive profitable growth,” Krishnan added.

ICRA Ratings, a key segment of ICRA, experienced revenue growth of 16.5% for the quarter and 13.6% for the entire year. The surge in bond issuances, particularly by non-banking financial companies (NBFCs) and banks, played a vital role in this growth, witnessing a remarkable increase of 54.8% year-on-year in Q4 FY2023.
