Hyderabad: Cholamandalam Investment and Finance Co. Ltd on Friday reported a fourth quarter FY16 profit of 192 crore, up 41% over the year-ago period’s 136 crore

The financing company, which offers loans for vehicles, homes and small and medium enterprises, said its net interest margin (NIM) widened by 9.4% in the quarter from 8% a year ago.
