Continued trend in Asset Quality improvement, steady 1QFY21 performance and attractive valuation reinforce our conviction that the bank is well placed to fight impending stress. However, the transition of the bank's top post is likely to be a key overhang. The pointers which acknowledge our conviction are: 1) In 1QFY21, gross slippages declined to 39.1bn v/s 82.9bn in the previous quarter, which resulted in decline in headline NPA ratios with GNPA at 5.44% (v/s 6.15% in 4QFY20) and NNPA at 1.86% (v/s 2.23% in 4QFY20). 2) A positive surprise on Loan under moratorium which reduced to 9.5% of loan amount against 23% declared earlier. 3) Business growth in line with industry aided by strong domestic NIMs (3.24% v/s 2.97% in the previous...

Strong COVID & Contingent provisioning and healthy 1QFY21 earnings acknowledge our conviction that ICICI Bank is preparing for sustainable, prudent and cautious growth despite some exceptional hiccups (moratorium book 17.5% V/s 30% earlier) owing to COVID. The bank has made COVID provisioning of 82.75bn in the previous two quarters. The total contingent provisioning (COVID + Standard + General) stands 2.1% of net advances which is the highest among peers. Considering the MORAT (17.5%) we expect ~2.5% of the book may come under stress post moratorium ends. The contingent provisioning is likely to be adequate to mitigate the stress. Furthermore, the bank has reported healthy 1QFY21 results with the key pointers...
