Motilal Oswal’s research report on ICICI Securities

ISEC witnessed flattish retail broking revenue for the seventh consecutive quarter despite improved traction in client acquisitions. However, this was more than offset by the strong performance in distribution, MTF books and investment banking revenue. Resultantly, ISEC’s 3QFY22 revenue at INR9.4b (+52% YoY) was 10% higher than our forecasts. PAT at INR3.8b (+42% YoY) was ahead of our estimates by 11%, while the C/I ratio inched up 90bp sequentially to 45.9% driven by 11% rise in other expenses (mainly marketing costs and technology investments). We have raised our FY22E/FY23E EPS by ~3%/1%, to factor in higher-than-expected traction in the distribution segment. We have, however, lowered our growth estimates for Investment Banking and MTF segments (due to the impact from ESOP funding rule).

Outlook

We maintain our BUY rating on the stock with a revised TP of INR1,000 (based on 21x Sep’23E P/E), implying 22% potential upside.
