UTI Bank: Corporates' bring in the cream

Oct 24, 2002

UTI Bank's strong growth in FY03 continues. For 2QFY03 the bank reported a significant 43% profit growth led by 34% growth in interest income. Higher growth in earnings was achieved despite a 40% hike in provisions for non-performing assets.

The bank's core interest income recorded a very strong growth of 59% during the quarter largely due to the rise in disbursals by the bank. The net interest income of UTI Bank saw a sharp growth of 80% during the quarter. The growth has been driven by a 50% surge in advances (up from Rs 44.6 bn in September last year to Rs 67.1 bn). An increase in other income too aided pre-tax profit growth.

UTI Bank's retail initiatives continue to aid its performance. The savings bank (SB) deposit base grew by over 59% YoY to Rs 10.9 bn as on 30th September '02. The SB customer accounts grew significantly from 400,565 to 720,064 during the same period, a growth of 80% YoY. The retail asset base has grown over 144% to Rs 7 bn YoY. The bank has identified housing and personal loans as key focus areas.

While retail banking's contribution to total revenues increased from 9% in 2QFY02 to 14.5% in the September quarter this year due to a huge 300% surge in retail banking revenues, the PBIT from this segment was negative and proved to be a drag on overall profitability. Though corporate banking share in revenues dipped from 51% levels to 48.5% in 2QFY03, the segment's share in profits expanded significantly to 92% of total PBIT.

At the current market price of Rs 38, UTI Bank is trading at a P/E of 4.5x 1HFY03 annualised earnings and adjusted price to book value ratio of 1.5x. The bank's aggressive expansion has reduced its capital adequacy ratio to 9.7% as on September 2002 from 10.7% in March 2002. The bank has appointed Saloman Smith Barney to raise funds to improve its capital adequacy ratio.
