Though recapitalisation of Rs45.2bn to UBI announced by the Government of India is long-term positive, it may further negatively impact its book value (as dilution in at discount to current book) and RoE in the immediate term. We expect UBI's credit cost to rise in the medium term, which will adversely impact its earnings over next 2-3 quarters. Thus, the Bank is expected to witness elevated level of credit cost, which will keep its earnings and return ratios subdued over next 3-6 quarters. Hence, we maintain our HOLD recommendation on the stock with a...

UBI is one of the most capital-starved public sector banks. Its CET1 stood at 7% in Sep'17, which is barely few bps above minimum regulatory requirement. We expect the Bank can be one of the major beneficiaries of recently announced mega PSB recapitalisation plan, as higher recapitalisation will help the Bank to come out of the capital insufficiency situation and return strongly on the growth path. However, the Bank may continue to witness elevated level of credit cost, which may keep its earnings and return ratios subdued over next 3-6 quarters. Hence, we continue to maintain our HOLD recommendation on the stock with an unrevised Target...

reversals on SDR/S4A accounts. Domestic/Global NIM came in at 2.19%/2.08% (2.20%/2.06% in 1QFY18). Trading gains of INR4.8b (37% of other income) led to 7% growth in other income.

NII growth of 3.5% yoy and -2.1% qoq was impacted due to contraction in NIMs which declined 9 bps yoy and 13 bps qoq to 2.1%. NIM contraction was partially driven by decline in yields which were down 73 bps yoy to 8.2% for the quarter. Another reason for NIM contraction was decline in credit/deposit ratio which stood at 74.1% (vs. 75.8% for Q1FY17 and 75.7% for Q4FY17). Employee costs during the quarter have declined 4.4% yoy and 1.8% qoq, while other expenses have increased by 18.4% qoq, down 9.6% qoq. Overall cost/income ratio stood at 43.8%, down 451 bps yoy and 55 bps qoq. We attributed most of the improvement in C/I ratio on yoy basis to strong growth in non-interest income. As a result, operating profit grew 26.6% yoy (down 3.6% qoq). PBT stood at Rs. 3529 mn, up 29.7% yoy. The bank was loss-making at PBT level during Q4FY17. Due to non-uniform effective tax rate, we believe periodic performance at PAT level is not comparable....
