What has driven performance in 2QFY15?
  • There seems to be no respite coming the IDBI bank’s way. Despite below average growth in loan book, the asset quality deterioration and the subsequent higher provisioning have together taken a toll on the bank’s profitability. The net profit at Rs 1185 mn has reported a de-growth as high as 38.4% YoY. For 1HFY14, the profits decelerated by 55% YoY.

    CASA ratio remains still same…
    (Rs m) 2QFY14 % of total 2QFY15 % of total Change
    Advances 1,835,860   1,950,570   6.2%
    Deposits 2,025,590   2,380,060   17.5%
    CASA 445,070 22.0% 524,330 22.0% 17.8%
    Tem deposits 1,580,520 78.0% 1,855,730 78.0% 17.4%
    Credit deposit ratio 90.6%   82.0%    

  • The gross NPAs to advances have too increased from 4.9% in September 2013 to 5.7% in September 2014. Among the NPAs, Agri and Allied activities take the largest chunk of 15.72% during the quarter.

  • IDBI Bank continues to carry bulky deposits on its balance sheet with terms deposits contributing almost 78% to the total deposits. Subsequently, the CASA proportion stood lower and formed merely 22% of the total deposits as at the end of September 2014.

  • The non-interest income to total income has improved to 10% from 8.13% in 2QFY14.
What to expect?

At the current price of Rs 71, the stock is valued at 0.66 times the FY17 adjusted book value.

There seems to be no respite coming for IDBI bank; particularly on the asset quality front. The risky corporate exposures and the bad loans pile-up continue to plague the earnings of IDBI bank. Moreover with limited business growth prospects and earnings pressures the going is getting tougher for IDBI bank.

IDBI bank stands on a weak footing with respect to all the operational parameters. Hence we recommend investors not to buy stock at these levels.
