Sub-optimal deposit momentum untenable
IndusInd Bank (IIB) reported its highest-ever quarterly earnings, largely on account of steady loan growth (+19% YoY), stable margins, sustained traction in fee income and lower credit costs (1.7% annualised). Gross slippages at 2.3% witnessed some deterioration in the CV/CE portfolio and partial fallout from the restructured book, ex of which the back-book appears to be incrementally stabilising. IIB managed to garner retail deposits in the form of CA and TD from select affluent and NRI pockets, resulting in an overhang on its funding costs. Given its historically sub-par/non-sticky deposit profile, we believe IIB would continue to face challenges in a deposit-constrained environment, given the narrowing wedge with loan growth. We tweak our FY23E/FY24E estimates to factor in lower credit costs, partly offset by downward pressure on NIMs. We maintain REDUCE with a revised TP of INR1,060 (1.3x Sep-24 ABVPS).
