3-year price chart
Outlook and valuation: Healthy pace of branch expansion and a strong
700
distribution network continue to be the driving force for the bank’s retail
600
business. On the asset quality, the bank has fully recognized the necessary
500
impairment and the resultant provisioning impact of the asset reclassification as
400
per the RBI’s assessment in 3QFY2016 which provides comfort with respect to
300
the asset quality. However, the management remains cautious on its asset quality
200
outlook in the near term. The bank is positioned strongly to benefit once the
100
macros revive. The stock currently trades at 1.7x P/ABV FY2017E. We maintain
our Buy rating on the stock with a revised target price of `531.

Advances growth remains healthy; NIM declines qoq
During 3QFY2016, the bank reported an advance growth of 21.0% yoy, while
deposits grew by 16.2% yoy. The bank’s loan book growth outpaced industry loan
growth, primarily due to strong traction witnessed in the retail and corporate book.
The retail book grew by 26.8% yoy and accounted for 40% of the advances. The
corporate loan book, which constitutes 47% of the total advance book, increased
by 22.1% yoy, mainly on account of refinancing and non-rupee financing; ~80%
of the new sanctions in the corporate book for the quarter were to companies
rated “A and above. Overall, for the current financial year, the bank expects
credit growth to be of around 20%.
The CASA ratio came in at 43.2%, declining by 100bp qoq, while it improved by
12bp on a yoy basis. The NIM declined by 6bp qoq and stood at 3.79% in spite of
the cost of funds falling by 13bp qoq to 5.86%. The sequential decline of 13bp in
the bank’s cost of funds is primarily driven by moderation in the cost of term
deposits and further aided by the bank’s continued focus on CASA. The bank
continues to maintain its outlook of sustainable core margins at 3.5%. The
Cost-Income ratio of the bank stood at 39%, largely on the back of controlled
growth in expenses. On a full year basis, the bank expects its Cost-Income ratio to
be around 40%.
