Motilal Oswal’s research report on ANGEL One

ANGELONE’s PAT surged 18% QoQ and 59% YoY to INR2.1b (11% beat) in 2QFY23. The profitability was driven by a 3% beat in operating revenue, which rose 8% QoQ and 52% YoY to INR4.6b. The key contributor to the outperformance was the 10% beat in net interest income. The volatility in the equity market led to a decline in the active client ratio to 36.2% in 2Q from 38.5% in 1QFY23. Operating expense grew 30% YoY, but was flat QoQ at INR2.7b (6% lower than our expectations), driven by a 59% YoY jump in employee costs. Other expenses grew 19% YoY to INR1.6b, 11% lower than our estimate. This was in spite of one-off expenses of INR166m. CIR declined substantially to 47.6% (better than our estimate of 51.7%) from 51.6% in 1QFY23. The same improved 500bp YoY. Except for a one-off item pertaining to a reversal of the margin penalty for the last four quarters that was passed to clients, CIR stood at 44.7%. The number of orders improved to 230m in 2QFY23 from 207m QoQ. The board has recommended a dividend of INR9 per share.


We have raised our estimates by 5-6% to factor in a lower-than-expected operating cost in 2QFY23. We expect some part of this to be sustainable, given the management’s outlook of declining customer acquisition costs. We maintain our Buy rating on the stock with a revised TP of INR2,200 (premised on 18x Sep’24E EPS).
