ICICI Securities research report on IIFL Wealth Management
Despite non-conducive capital market sentiment, IIFL Wealth & Asset Management (IIFLW) registered 35% YoY growth in PAT in Q1FY23 to Rs1.6bn (down 4.7% QoQ), ahead of our expectations of Rs1.53bn. Delivery of >21% RoE demonstrates the benefit flowing from its annual recurring revenue (ARR) assets build-up strategy. ARR asset revenue was marginally positive QoQ, though up 33% YoY to Rs2.56bn (now constituting 69% of overall revenue) as retention on ARR assets sustained at 74bps. However, revenues fell 18% QoQ to Rs3.7bn primarily due to decline in transactional revenue (down 30% QoQ) and other income (negative Rs60mn). Lower revenues were offset by 28.7% QoQ plunge (9.5% YoY rise) with the cost-to-income ratio settling at 45.4%. Company targets: i) ARR asset growth of 25-30%, ii) overall retention ratio of 55bps, iii) reduction in cost-to-income to 45% in FY23 and 41-43% in FY24, iv) PAT CAGR of 20% over FY22-FY24E, v) tangible RoEs of >25% for FY23 and toward 30% for FY24.
Maintain BUY with an unchanged target price of Rs2,217 (24x FY24E earnings).
