Motilal Oswal’s research report on Bajaj Finance

BAF delivered an all-round healthy performance in all its key business parameters. PAT grew 85% YoY and 44% QoQ to INR21.3b (17% beat) in 3QFY22. While NII rose 41% YoY to INR47.3b (6% beat), due to higher interest income from IPO financing and lower negative carry, it was slightly mitigated by higher opex (up 50% YoY and 9% above our estimate). Credit costs stood at INR10.5b (est. INR11.5b), which included an additional management overlay of INR2.5b in 3QFY22. GNPA/NNPA ratio improved by ~72bp/~32bp QoQ to 1.73%/0.78%. OTR book classified under Stage 2 stood at INR14.53b (~80bp of AUM). BAF carried ECL provision of INR3.17b (21.8%) in this book. Traction in the omnichannel strategy continued to remain strong, both for acquisition of EMI card customers (~492k) as well as for loans at the EMI store (~393k; 5% of new loans in 3QFY22). Stimulation of customers at the point of sale (POS) by leveraging its integrated offline to online framework led to originations of INR6b in personal loans and ~91k Credit Cards.

Outlook

We expect BAF to deliver a RoA/RoE of 4.3-4.6%/21-23% over FY23-24E. Given the expected strength in asset quality in 2HFY22 and the sustained milestones-driven progress made by it in its digital transformation program, we reiterate our Buy rating with a TP of INR9,080 (8.5x FY24E BVPS).
