Here's Why IndusInd Bank's Net Profit Doubled in the June Quarter

Jul 28, 2021

Shares of IndusInd Bank surged over 3% and remained in the top performer in the Nifty 50 index.

The stock climbed in today's trade after the bank posted a strong number for the first quarter of the year 2021-22.

IndusInd Bank's standalone net profit more than doubled and surged 111.7% in the first quarter led by lower provisions and robust growth in net interest income.

For the quarter ended June 2021, the lender reported standalone net profit of Rs 9.7 bn compared to Rs 4.6 bn in the same quarter of last fiscal.

Rise in net interest income aid growth in the quarter

The company's net interest income increased by a similar 7.7% to Rs 35.6 bn in the April to June 2021 quarter from Rs 33.1 bn in the same period last fiscal.

Net interest margin was lower at 4.1 bn as on 30 June 2021 from 4.3% a year ago.

In a statement on Tuesday, the bank said this was due to lower credit offtake and surplus liquidity placed under repo with Reserve Bank of India (RBI).

Other income jumped up by 17.2% on a year on year (YoY) basis to Rs 17.8 bn during the quarter.

Its total income grew by 7.8% in the first quarter of the fiscal to Rs 93.6 bn against Rs 86.8 bn a year ago.

Asset quality deteriorated amid the second wave of the Covid-19 pandemic

IndusInd Bank's asset quality worsened as gross non-performing asset (NPA) assets rose to Rs 61.6 bn or 2.9% of gross advances as on 30 June 2021 from 2.5% a year ago and 2.7% as on 31 March 2021.

Net NPAs were at almost the same level at 0.8% of net advances as on 30 June 2021 from 0.9% a year ago. However, on a sequential basis it was much higher compared to 0.7% as on 31 March 2021.

In the June quarter, the bank added Rs 27.6 bn worth bad loans, owing to collection issues during the quarter. Of this, Rs 23.4 bn came from the consumer finance book.

IndusInd Bank hopes for a quick revival after a covid-ravaged quarter

IndusInd Bank saw all the possible trouble that lenders faced during the second wave of the pandemic, from increase in stress to lack of growth opportunities.

But the bank's management believes that defaults will reduce, giving it confidence to increase disbursements in the coming months.

Sumant Kathpalia, the bank's managing director and chief executive officer, said he derives confidence in growth from the improvement in collections since June and believes the robustness of the corporate loan book will support the balance sheet.

For the June quarter, though, IndusInd Bank hardly grew its loan book.

On a YoY basis, the growth was at 6.6%, mainly due to a low base. Last year's loan growth was a mere 2% as a nationwide lockdown hit business.

This impacted its margins as the bank had to carry over Rs 120 bn worth of excess liquidity from the previous quarter. Core interest income growth, too, was underwhelming due to the same.

What is behind the Rs 9.7 bn net profit for the quarter that was much higher than analysts' estimates?

This brings us to provisions. IndusInd Bank set aside Rs 18.5 bn as provisions, marginally lower than the previous quarter despite a 6.7% increase in its bad loan pile.

The bank also reported a rise in restructured loan book, which now stands at 2.8% of the total.

The management has said that it holds Rs 5.1 bn provisions specifically towards pandemic-related stress and does not see an increase in provisioning going forward.

To be fair, fresh slippages are down sequentially and the bank does not expect restructured loans to turn bad.

The bank's biggest pain point has been unsecured credit card loans and loans to buyers of small commercial vehicles and three-wheelers. These categories saw the biggest increase in delinquencies during the June quarter.

Given that vehicle finance has a large share in the loan book, IndusInd Bank needs this segment to bounce back fast. According to Kathpalia, the bank's collections look promising. He expects growth to pick up soon.

IndusInd Bank is hopeful of better days ahead as the second wave of the pandemic recedes and restrictions are removed progressively.
