price of `630.

Advances growth remains healthy; NIM improves qoq
During 2QFY2016, the bank reported an advance growth of 23.1% yoy, while
deposits grew by 14.2% yoy. The bank’s loan book growth outpaced the industry
loan growth, primarily due to strong traction witnessed in the retail and corporate
book. The retail book grew by 26.6% yoy and accounted for 40% of the advances
(86% of the domestic retail lending book is secured). Retail composition includes
48% of advances towards housing loans, 15% towards retail agricultural loans, 8%
towards auto loans, and 10% is contributed by personal loans and credit cards.
The corporate loan book which comprises 47% of the total advance book
increased by 25.8% yoy, mainly on account of refinancing and non-rupee
financing. Also, the bank mentioned that 80% of fresh sanctions have been to
companies rated ‘A’ and above. We saw an improvement in the In the corporate
segment with 61% of the book in the ‘A to AAA’ category vs 60% as at the end of
the sequential previous quarter.
The CASA deposits grew at 14% yoy. The CASA ratio came in at 44.2%, which is a
decline of 29bp yoy while it improved by 149bp qoq. The NIM saw an improvement
qoq at 3.85%, as cost of funds fell by by 13bp qoq to 15.99%. The impact of base
rate cut in October will likely have an effect in the upcoming quarter’s NIM since
82% of the domestic loans of the bank are linked to the base rate.

Slow growth in non-interest income
Other income (comprising fee, trading profit and miscellaneous
income)
for
2QFY2016 grew at a slow pace of 5% yoy at `2,041cr as against `1,948cr during
the same period last year. During the quarter, fee income grew 14% yoy to reach
`1,813cr. The key driver to the growth in fee income was retail banking, which
grew by 19% yoy and constituted 40% of the bank’s total fee income. Other
income was adversely impacted by a decline in capital gains by 38.2% yoy. The
Management reiterated that the fee income would grow in mid-teens in FY2016.

Stressed assets elevated
Asset quality deteriorated following the sale to ARC (`1,820cr). The sale was at
~65% haircut, with a `336cr hit on the P&L and `850cr accounted from
contingent provisions. Outstanding contingent provisions now stand at `450cr.
Including this sale to ARC and restructuring, slippages stood at `2,866cr (4.1%
annualized) vs the reported 0.8% annualized (without considering the sale to ARC
and restructured loans). However, the company had pre-emptively made the
provisions, thereby cushioning the impact on profitability. The bank restructured
`463cr worth of loans during the quarter. However, the Management has
reiterated its credit cost guidance of 90bp, while it has guided for lower stressed
asset formation in FY2016 (excluding the sale to ARC).
