“The Board of Directors has also approved the payment of Interim dividend of Rs. 8 per equity share of face value of Re 1 each, for the financial year ending December 31, 2022, which will be paid on August 18, 2022," said CRISIL in an exchange filing.

Amish Mehta, Managing Director & CEO, CRISIL, said “The hawkish response of central banks to elevated inflation worldwide has put significant pressure on global growth. We expect current headwinds to strengthen given volatile commodity prices, and geopolitical uncertainties. Despite the challenging environment, we saw growth across businesses during Q2 2022, with strong demand for bank loan ratings in India, and for benchmarking and risk solutions in global market. We continue to ramp up investments in talent and technology to build capabilities for providing differentiated solutions to clients."

CRISIL has also said in a regulatory filing that “Q2 2022 was marked by a sharp rise in inflation globally, including in India. The Reserve Bank of India raised the repo rate twice in response. Commodity prices continue to be elevated, and investor appetite for domestic capital market issuances remains subdued. Corporate bond issuances (by quantum) declined 28% on-year in Q2 2022, and the number of capital markets issuers fell 32%. Securitisation transactions, however, rebounded as non-banks preferred the route to raise resources. Bank credit grew with lending rates hovering below pre-pandemic levels."

“Amid the challenging credit environment, CRISIL Ratings' revenue rose 20% in Q2 2022, driven by increased traction in bank loan ratings. With the addition of new clients, the business continues to strengthen its market-leading position in corporate bond ratings, on account of investor preference for best-in-class ratings. Global Analytical Centre (GAC) strengthened analytical support across surveillance and ESG, and contributed to transformation initiatives for S&P Global Ratings Services," said the Board of Directors.

The company's revenue in the ratings, research and advisory segments increased in the second quarter of 2022 by 16.5 per cent, 32.1 per cent, and 9.7 per cent, respectively.
