Highlights and rationale for the investment
Credit growth improved sequentially: Credit growth improved to 10% year-on-year (from 6% in Q1 FY22) due to improved corporate portfolio growth (7% year-on-year) with the recovery new loans. The retail portfolio now represents 55% of total loans with the addition of the Business Banking and MFI portfolio. Deposits grew 21% yoy (26% yoy Q1FY22) driven by 17% yoy growth in term deposits and 26% yoy in CASA deposits.
Stable asset quality; Book restructured at 3.6%: Stable quality of bank assets with GNPA at 2.77% vs. 2.88% QoQ; 0.8% NNPA vs 0.8% QoQ with 72% stable PCR. The restructured banking portfolio stands at 3.6% of the portfolio (vs. 2.7% Q1FY22). The bank maintains conditional provisions of Rs 31.8 billion which have cushioned the impact on the income statement of any negative impact from the telecommunications sector. NIMs remain stable: NIMs remain stable at 4.07% although the cost of funds has declined.
Outlook: The continuation of the business strategy under the leadership of the new CEO has made it possible to better manage asset quality issues. In addition, greater concern about deposit growth, which is the key ingredient in the banking sector, has largely abated.
