MMFS disappointed our expectations with a loss of INR 15.3bn, on account of higher provisions (up 2.3x YoY) at INR 28.2bn, which was the outcome of an inflated stress pool of 35% (GS-II at 19.4% and GS-III at 15.5%). Asset quality deteriorated as collections and disbursements were significantly impacted by the second wave, as witnessed across other lenders. We revise our FY22/23E forecasts downwards by 14.4/3.3%, factoring in higher credit costs and interest reversals. However, gradual normalisation of portfolio stress, sponsor-backed funding cost advantage, and inexpensive valuation underpin our ADD rating with a revised TP of INR 177 (earlier INR 183), implying 1.2x Mar'23 ABVPS.
Portfolio stress peeking out: MMFS reported GNPAs of 15.5% and a GS-II portfolio (including restructured loans of 2.8%) at 19.4%, taking the total stress book to 35%, reflecting the difficulties in physical collection and the need for rural customers to hoard liquidity. The management commentary suggests that the stress is transient as (a) 75% of GS-II loans have exhibited significant repayment activity and (b) a meaningful proportion of NPAs have paid up 50% of their outstanding loans. As the macro environment situation normalises, MMFS is likely to migrate to 35-40% PCR (in line with its historical LGDs) and, accordingly, witness significant provision reversals over the next three quarters. We build in GNPAs of 12% and 9% for FY22E and FY23E respectively - we also build in credit costs of 3.2/2.7% in FY22/FY23E.
AUM growth to rebound in H2FY22: Disbursals de-grew 35% sequentially (up 42% YoY due to a low base). Tractor disbursements have continued to lose traction (clocking below-industry growth rate) over the past couple of quarters on account of a high share of commercial tractors. We continue to build in an AUM CAGR of 10.7% over FY22-23E, likely to be back-ended towards H2FY22, led by tractors (17% of AUM), pre-owned vehicles (12%) and Auto - M&M (29%).
