    Sundaram Finance: 1Q profits dip by 15%

    Sundaram Finance (SFL) has posted a 15% fall in earnings for the June quarter. The company's topline too grew by a marginal 5%.

    (Rs m) 1QFY01 1QFY02 Change
    Income from operations 1,119 1,170 4.6%
    Other Income 11 18 66.2%
    Financial expenses 790 836 5.9%
    Operating Profit (EBDIT) 329 334 1.5%
    Operating Profit Margin (%) 29.4% 28.6%  
    Operating expenses 124 138 11.3%
    Profit before Tax 216 215 -0.8%
    Provision & write off 39 35 -11.0%
    Tax 70 88 26.8%
    Profit after Tax/(Loss) 107 91 -15.0%
    Net profit margin (%) 9.6% 7.8%  
    No. of Shares (eoy) (m) 24.0 24.0  
    Diluted Earnings per share 17.9 15.2  
    P/E (at current price)   5  

    SFL's operating margins declined by 90 basis points and other expenses increased by 11%. This contributed to lower profits in the June quarter.

    During the quarter, provision figure was lower by 11%. In FY01, SFL has already reduced the ratio of gross non-performing assets to advances to 6.2% (from 7% in FY00). The net NPA ratio at 4% is also one of the lowest in the finance sector. The ratio was just 1% for the retail business.

    At the current market price of Rs 73, SFL is trading at a P/E of 5x and Price/Book value ratio of just 0.3x. The company has maintained its dividend ratio to 60% in the past three years. Assuming the company maintains the dividend ratio in the current year too, the dividend yield works out to 8%.
