Loan growth slows to single digits; Asset quality remains under pressure DCB reported a lackluster quarter with increased stress on asset quality, tepid loan growth and elevated provisions due to Covid-19. The only solace was the continued control over opex. oAdvances growth stood at 8% YoY (a multi-year low) & remained flat QoQ with advances at Rs. 25,345 Cr. Loan growth trended down owing to a slowdown in all segments viz. Mortgage, SME, CV, Agri and Corporate. Loan book ex-corporate grew by ~10% YoY. We expect advances to grow at 10% CAGR during FY20-22E. oNIMs declined QoQ by 7 bps to 3.64%. (YoY NIM was at 3.78%). NII grew by 8% YoY. LCR has been in excess of 130% which has impacted NIMs by 4-5 bps. NIMs are expected to be negatively impacted in FY21E as the bank will look to maintain excess liquidity and also due to higher slippages. oOther income increased by 11% YoY. Fee income grew by a mere 2% while treasury income and forex transactions led to the overall increase in other income. oOpex grew 3% YoY and cost/income declined 330 bps QoQ and 260 bps YoY to 51.1%. DCB is confident of maintaining its opex levels low in the current year. oTotal Income grew by 8%. oProvisions stood at Rs. 118 Cr vs QoQ Rs. 59 Cr and YoY Rs. 35 Cr. Out of this, Rs. 63 Cr (0.95% of AUM) provisions were towards Covid (including Rs. 9 Cr as 10% provisions on overdue accounts as on 1st March as prescribed...

Expect de-growth in 1HFY21, NPA challenges inevitable DCB Bank (DBL) reported NII 2% below our estimate. Operating profit growth was relatively better at 14.5% YoY/11.7% QoQ on the back of a flexible cost structure (as indicated by the management). Total opex grew by 3.1% YoY and declined by 2.1% QoQ. Provisions for the quarter stood at Rs1,182mn, up 2.4x YoY/1x QoQ as the bank provided a sum of Rs630mn related to covid-19. Going forward, we expect credit cost to increase on account of NPA build up. PAT came in 32% lower than our estimate mainly on account of higher-than-expected provisioning. Advances growth at 7.5% YoY was weak as Rs4-5bn worth of loans could not be...

Valuation and Outlook DCB has surpassed its inflection point in terms of a gradual and continuous reduction in its cost to income ratio as the benefit of over 2x increase in branches post FY15 becomes visible. Although the economic slowdown and run-down of corporate book shall impact the bank during FY20, we remain positive from FY21 perspective, given DCB's strong presence in the SME and Retail space with no baggage of any legacy asset quality issues. As compared to its peer City Union Bank (CUB), DCB trades at a discount of 40% due to its lower historical ROA of 0.9-1.0% as against 1.6% for CUB. We believe this discount should shrink to 25% as DCB's ROA expands to ~1.2% by FY21E majorly backed by a decline in opex/assets. We maintain BUY on the stock with a target price of Rs. 219 (at 1.8x of FY21E Adj. BV).

Our estimates remain largely unchanged, even after DCBB's soft performance over 3QFY20. We model a considerable improvement in credit growth and operating efficiency beyond FY20E. These reflect our confidence in the bank's calibrated approach to growth. We expect oplev to be the biggest driver of return ratio improvement. DCBB stands to gain from an uptick in economic activity and a sustained downturn will pose a significant risk to our estimates. DCBB reported an in-line qtr and overall performance was lackluster (asset quality deterioration and slowing growth). Better cost control and a slight margin uptick were positives. MAINTAIN BUY with a TP of Rs 249.

A Weak Quarter; Performance Likely to Improve in 2HFY20 DCB Bank has delivered a weak performance in 2QFY20 led by elevated annualised slippages of 2.7% along with continued pressure on NIM (-25bps YoY) and weak loan growth (+12% YoY). PAT grew by 13% YoY (marginally ahead of our estimate), largely aided by higher treasury gains. Gross NPAs increased by 13bps QoQ and 25bps YoY, with rise in segmental NPAs across CV, MSME, mortgage and gold portfolio. CASA grew by a muted 7% YoY, though growth in retail deposits stood at healthy 26% YoY. The Management's endeavor to further granularise its deposit profile should aid the Bank's NIM over the longer-term. We believe unless the advances...

Yet again, we are compelled to reduce our estimates for DCBB over FY20-22E, as we build slower loan growth and higher slippages. These do not worry us and we like DCBB's relatively conservative approach. Sustainability of oplev improvement seen this qtr (key for RoAA expansion) and the NIM impact of linking of fresh retail loans to external benchmarks, will be watched for. Maintain BUY with a TP of Rs 243 (2 X Sep-21E ABV of Rs 122), especially given the recent correction. DCBBs 2QFY20 disappointed with broad-based asset quality deterioration while sustained cost control and stable margins were silver linings. MAINTAIN BUY with a TP of Rs 243.

Loan growth ex-corporate segment is ~19% vs. overall growth of 13%. Interest expenses were a drag on the topline due to fixed rate refinance being garnered from NABARD and SIDBI.

Over FY17-19, loan growth ex-corporate segment has been at 21%-27% which the management now expects at Q1 level of ~19% for FY20.
