Bank of Baroda (BoB) reported a sharp drop in its moratorium (morat) levels to ~21.4% vs. ~65% in March 2020. In terms of moratorium composition, 15.7% morat was availed by borrowers with outstanding loan amount in excess of Rs. 10 lakh while the balance (5.7%) were borrowers with an outstanding loan amount less than Rs. 10 lakh. Total provisioning for Q1FY21 was down 17.8% YoY to Rs. 5628 crore. The bank has provided Rs. 996 crore for Covid-19 during the quarter. As on June 30, 2020, total Covid provisioning was at Rs. 1806 crore (~25 bps of advances). PCR increased from 81.3% in Q4FY20 to 83.3% in Q1FY21.
Valuation & Outlook
The ongoing nationwide lockdown coupled with the integration process underway (to be completed by the end of FY21) would keep growth muted in the near term. Going forward, moratorium book, watchlist trend and restructured book remain key monitorables. Given the capital position with CET1 ratio at 9.08%, the bank has indicated at a capital raise of ~Rs. 9000 crore during H2FY21, which looks positive at this point. On the back of lower growth and muted return ratios, we value the bank at 0.5x FY22E ABV with a revised target price of Rs. 52. We maintain HOLD.
