Prabhudas Lilladher’s research report on Muthoot Finance

MUTH recorded a flat loan growth (QoQ and 8.5% YoY) at Rs 546bn. Despite underlying asset price fluctuations and flat customer accretion (fresh loans from new customers) led by third wave challenges, MUTH maintained sequential steady traction in tonnage movement. Asset quality marginally deteriorated (Stage 3: 3.82% vs 1.85%: Q2FY22) largely due to higher disbursements in Q3FY21 (when gold prices were at peak) and restructuring. There was no impact on asset quality due to RBI circular. Auction value at Rs28000mn (5% of gold loans) inched up during the quarter.

Outlook

We have maintained our EPS estimates and our confidence stands reinforced by (a) healthy CAR (~30%) (b) healthy 18% AUM CAGR backed by customer accretion and (c) superior asset quality (<1.5%GNPA) translating into high RoA/RoE 6.2%+/21-22% resp. over FY22-FY24. Our core book multiple stands at 2.7x PABV Sep’23E. Subsequently our SoTP now stands at Rs. 1,714 (standalone: Rs1,699 & subsidiary: Rs14). We reiterate BUY.
