SAID THAT THE COMPANY’S EXPERTISE IS BASED ON FEEDBACK
GAINED FROM WORKING WITH SEVERAL MAJOR BRANDS THROUGHOUT
THE WORLD.

16:30
For example where ever you are, people shop at 60 degrees.
That’s your arc of vision. Doesn’t matter where you are
from in the world that’s what you are going to see. People
only ever tern at 45 degrees.16:40
So if there’s something in their way they’ll swing 45
degrees and then change back. They’ll never turn back on
themselves 16:48
And probably even more importantly people will only buy
things in 1.2 meter of their journey through the shop. What
we call that is exposing products to the danger of being
sold 17:

1.
Due to the high price of petrol no one is hiring 3 wheelers. Most of us used to earn Rs.
800-900 a day but now only make half that amount.
Cost of living is unbearable, so we are asking the relevant authorities to give the small
man some relief.

2.
We are daily wage earners. So as poor people, their should be some relief given to us
through the upcoming budget.

3.
We like to see the price of our daily food items to come down especially milk.

5.
Prices of all items has gone up, if the prices decrease that’s really good.

6.
Food prices have become unbelievable.

7.
I believe the President will support businesses.
Business is good for me, but I want the food prices to come down, because these prices
are too high, how ever much we earn is not good enough.

8.
I’m a pensioner, so I can’t expect a job or salary increments. So we expect relief to come
through consumer items.

9.
Not only us, everyone expects food prices to come down, because a lot of people have
economic difficulties.

LANKA NATIONAL RATING OF LANKA ORIX LEASING COMPANY PLC.
THE OUTLOOK ON THE RATING REMAINS STABLE.

LOLC’S RATING REFLECTS ITS RELATIVELY STRONG FINANCIAL


PROFILE AND ITS ESTABLISHED CUSTOMER FRANCHISE IN THE
LEASING INDUSTRY.

HOWEVER FITCH STATES THAT ITS RATING IS CONSTRAINS BY THE


LACK OF DIVERSITY IN LOLC’S FUNDING AVENUES.

THE NET GROWTH IN LOLC'S OVERALL LOAN PORTFOLIO WAS HIGH


DURING THE TWELVE-MONTHS WHICH ENDED ON THE 31 MARCH 2007.
IT OUTPACED THE SPECIALIZED LEASING COMPANY SECTOR DURING
THE SAME PERIOD.

LOLC'S YEAR ON YEAR GROWTH AT 31 MARCH 2007 WAS HIGH AT


40.3% COMPARED TO AN AVERAGE GROWTH RATE OF AROUND 16% FOR
THE SECTOR.

LOAN GROWTH CONTINUED AT A HIGH ANNUALIZED PACE OF 33.8


PERCENT IN THE FIRST QUARTER OF 2008.

LOLC'S GROSS NON-PERFORMING LOANS INCREASED TO 2.8% AND


5.5% AT FINANCIAL YEAR 2007 AND THE FIRST QUARTER OF 2008
RESPECTIVELY, FROM THE 1.7% AT FINANCIAL YEAR 2006.

HOWEVER LOLC'S GROSS NPL RATIO REMAINS LOWER THAN THAT OF


ITS PEERS, LARGELY DUE TO THE COMPANY'S YEAR END WRITE OFF
POLICY OF NPLS IN ARREARS FOR OVER 24 MONTHS, SUPPORTED BY
ITS STRONG COLLECTION EFFORTS.
