General Insurance: Apr-20: GDPI continues to decline due to Lockdown

buy
HDFC Securities
With a long run-way of growth, improving regulatory environment, and strong innovation opportunities, we remain positive on the general insurance sector. Regulatory crack-down on motor TP pricing is key risk. Pvt. multi-line insurers Apr-20 GDPI declined 16.2% YoY to Rs 67.2bn. Decline in Apr-20 was along expected lines as new policy sales have fallen as a result of the nation-wide lockdown, and renewals have been impacted by the forbearance (until 21-May-20) given by IRDAI on premium payments, and extra time (until June-20) allowed for claiming deduction under the IT Act, for the purchase of health cover.

NIACL is India's largest insurer but continues to make high underwriting losses (9MFY20 COR: 115.8%). We also note company's competitive positioning is only weakening and thus we remain concerned of company's ability of write high quality (profitable) business in the near future. We estimate an FY22E adj. RoE of just 7.1%, and can at best assign a valuation of just 0.65x Dec-21E ABV (less 5% discount for expected 10.4% supply). We rate NIACL a SELL with a higher TP of Rs 130. Driven by a 1,230bps improvement in claims ratio, NIACL reported a better than expected adj. COR of 115.7% (-1,150bps YoY). NEP grew 11.7/4.9% YoY/QoQ to Rs 61.8bn. High investment income (Rs 22.3bn, +65.1% YoY) and low tax rate (17.3%) ensured a high APAT of Rs 10.7bn (vs. -1.1bn in 3QFY19). Post tax one-offs on account of provisioning for gratuity and pension dented profits by Rs 5.8bn to an RPAT of Rs 4.9bn. We retain a SELL with a higher TP of Rs 130.

NIA is India's largest insurer but continues to make high underwriting losses (1H COR: 116.4%). We also note company's competitive positioning is only weakening and thus we remain concerned of company's ability of write high quality (profitable) business in the near future. We estimate an FY22E adj. RoE of just 7.2%, and can at best assign a valuation of just 0.6x Sep-21E ABV (less 10% discount for expected 10.4% supply). Given recent run up in price, we downgrade the stock to SELL with an unchanged TP of Rs 116. While NIA reported a better than expected COR of 118.3% (-610bps YoY), high NEP meant large underwriting losses of Rs 11.0bn (+9.4% YoY). Investment income (Rs 17.1bn, 11.6% yield) and low tax rate (12.2%) ensured a high PAT of Rs 5.6bn (+59.8/99.2% YoY/QoQ). We note improvement in core ICRs but our estimates already build the same and hence remain unchanged.
