Bajaj Finance - Q3 FY21 First Take - YES Securities

Posted On: 2021-01-20 09:51:34 (Time Zone: Arizona, USA)

Results Positive - Stress flows as expected, but Credit Cost estimates upgraded

Q3 Results v/s our expectations

- NII 4% below estimates - NII growth tepid due to higher reversal of interest income at Rs4.5bn and higher cost of liquidity surplus at Rs2.1bn

- Opex 5% higher than expectations - thus PPOP 8% below our estimate

- Net Credit cost at Rs13.5bn was lower than estimate of Rs15bn - however, the co. dipped into the Covid buffer (Stage 1 & 2 ECL, including Management Overlay) to one-time write-off principal and interest aggregating Rs23.5bn related to potentially unrecoverable loans.

- Now the co. holds a management overlay of just Rs8bn (55 bps of AUM) as at 31 December 2020

- Company's Proforma Gross and Net NPA stood at 2.9% and 1.2% respectively as against 1.34% and 0.56% respectively as of 30 September 2020 - this was despite writing off 1.5% of AUM during the quarter

- Earnings was lower by 8-9% v/s our estimate
