Prabhudas Lilladher’s research report on IndusInd Bank

IIB’s earnings of Rs8.7bn missed estimates (PLe: Rs9.6bn) partly on slightly weaker income and partly on continued provisions. Slippages were slightly higher led from corporate and invoked restructuring led to upgrades as well. Retail slippages though were lower sequentially has been still on higher side, continued from VF, MFI, unsecured. Restructuring outcome has been slightly than anticipated (2% v/s 1.8% expected) as second wave has increased retail/SME borrowers to opt for restructuring. With much better PCR of 74% v/s 43% in FY19 and 80bps (Rs16.0bn) of contingent provisions cushion balance sheet, while core segments are seeing better collections efficiency & improving growth prospects.
