Other income fuels UTI Bank's 1Q profits

Jul 11, 2001

UTI Bank has recorded a 58% YoY jump in 1QFY02 net profits to Rs 254 m. Profit growth of the bank has been fueled by a substantial rise in other income.

P/E (at current price) 3.9 

The retail focus of the bank through a wide branch network and an ATM network coupled with increase in deposits enabled it to grow its interest income by 58% in 1QFY02. Operating margins of the bank have also shown a rise of 70 basis points to 10.4%. However, UTI Bank's operating margins are one of the lowest in the industry. Saving and current account deposits contributed marginal 15% to total deposits in FY01. As a result the bank's cost of funds is relatively high, resulting in lower operating margins.

Investment in technology and infrastructure resulted in a 72% rise in other income. UTI Bank's cost to income ratio however declined to 33% from 54% in 1QFY01. Similarly, the tax provision by the bank has increased by about 280% but the effective tax rate has come down to 22% from 23% in 1QFY01.

Adverse capital market and industrial scenario is reflected in higher provisioning. The bank's NPA ratio stood at 3.4% as on FY01. Its capital adequacy ratio (CAR) of 7.9% is however below the 9% norm by RBI. The bank is required to raise capital to maintain minimum CAR of 10% by FY02 and also to support its high growth.

At the current market price of Rs 30, UTI Bank is trading at PER of 3.7x FY02 projected earnings. The Bank's Price/Book value ratio of 1x is comparatively less than its private sector peers. If the bank raises the amount through equity it could result in a dilution in its equity base, resulting in reduction in earnings per share.
