    HDFC's net up 14%

    HDFC has reported a year on year 14% increase in operating income for the 3QFY01. The corporation's profits growth has been slowed down during the current quarter due to decline of more than 80% in other income. However, it has improved operating margins by around 80 basis points.

    HDFC's approvals during the third quarter grew by 25% to Rs 15.5 bn and disbursements by 26% to Rs 13.5 bn ( during the nine months of FY01 approvals and disbursements grew by 31% and 30% respectively).

    The corporation's aggressive focus on retail market by increasing distribution outlets and enhanced tax incentives provided in the last budget has enabled it to maintain a high growth rate. Approvals and disbursements in respect of individual loans were higher by 52% and 54% respectively during the 9 months of FY01 and retail deposits aggregated to Rs 18 bn, an increase of 43% compared to corresponding previous period.

    HDFC's topline and profits growth in the first nine months was around 19% and 18% respectively. Decline in dividend income and lease rentals led to slower growth. Excluding this, revenues grew by an impressive 23%.

    Break-up of interest income
    (Rs m) 9m FY00 9m FY01 Change
    Interest on loans 9,657 11,741 21.6%

    Lease rental income 386 318 -17.5%
    Other operating income 2,451 2,927 19.4%

    At the current market price of Rs 531, HDFC is trading at a P/E multiple of 15 times its third quarter annualised earnings and 13 times its FY01 projected earnings. We have projected an earnings growth of 17% for the year ended March 2001. HDFC's nine months performance is in line with our full year projections.
