For Bajaj Finserv, business traction remained healthy in finance & insurance segment but earnings got impacted due to elevated provisioning & claims.

Q1FY22 Earnings Summary

- Consolidated topline de-grew ~2% YoY to Rs. 13949 crore, due to muted performance in lending business and higher re-insurance in insurance business. Elevated provisioning in lending business and higher Covid claims impacted earnings which de-grew by 31% YoY to Rs. 833 crore

Subsequently, NII came at Rs. 4489 crore vs Rs. 4152 crore in Q1FY21, increasing 8% YoY. Pre-provision profitability remained healthy, however, elevated loan loss provisioning at Rs. 1750 crore impacted earnings momentum which came at Rs. 1002 crore, up 4% YoY. GNPA/NNPA ratio negatively surprised rising 117bps/76bps to 2.96% and 1.46% respectively in Q1FY22 from Q4FY21 levels of 1.79% / 0.75% (post ~Rs. 113 crore w/off in Q1)

- Gross written premium in general insurance increased by 9% YoY to Rs. 2494 crore. On the expenses side, claim ratio increased to 75.9% in Q1FY22 vs. 68.1% in Q1FY21, primarily due to pre-tax Covid claims of Rs. 283 crore in Q1FY22 vs Rs. 14 crore in Q1FY21.
