After a relatively steady show over the trailing three quarters, a small but broad stumble (growth, margins and opex) is evident. Even as corporate slippages were significantly higher (largely from identified stress), the steady watchlist and a <2% SMA book provide consolation on asset quality. At 1.1x FY21E ABV, valuations are cheap and reflect FB's inconsistent journey through challenging macros. It is noteworthy that the incumbent MD&CEO was granted a only year's extension by the regulator (with conditions for further extension). Maintain BUY with a TP of Rs 119. FB saw higher slippages, margin contraction, slower growth and an opex bump up in 2QFY20. A static watchlist was the silver lining. With a TP of Rs 119 (1.5x Sept-21 ABV of Rs 79), we maintain BUY.

Many one-offs dent operating profit, Retain BUY Net profit came in at 4.2 bn, up by 56.6% yoy. This quarter numbers were marked by slower growth, higher NPLs (led by one large corporate account), elevated opex cost and a miss on margins too. Slippages were at 5.4 bn (vs. 4.2 bn qoq) which were largely led by one large corporate account amounting to 1.8 bn. Bank highlighted its exposure to few large vulnerable accounts (incl. 2 HFCs and IL&FS;) amounts to 4.75 bn which are still standard in the books and provisions on these are at 0.7 bn. Margins qoq slipped by ~14 bps to 3% led by linking of advances & deposits to external benchmark repo rates. Mgmt expects exit margin of 3.13.15% in FY20.

Inconsistent performance across parameters (spanning asset quality and C-I) capped valuations for FB over several quarters. We sense increasing stability over the last two quarters. Despite factoring higher slippages and provisions towards stressed exposures, FB can deliver earnings CAGR of ~28% led by operating leverage and better core performance, especially asset quality. To be sure, FB has stumbled in the past but several corrective initiatives are probably paying off, finally. UPGRADE to BUY with a TP of Rs 117. We upgrade Federal Bank to BUY (TP Rs 117, 1.5x June-21 ABV of Rs 77) after a better than expected show across parameters, in a seasonally weak quarter. Further consistency can lead on to significantly better outcomes.

Healthy Operating Performance; Consistency Key to Valuations Federal Bank has delivered an in-line set of numbers in 1QFY20 led by NII growth of 18% YoY, a healthy 25% YoY growth in core fee-based income and 30% YoY growth in PPoP. However, slippages were higher than our estimate mainly led by elevated retail slippages, though higher write-offs aided GNPA ratio (+7bps QoQ). Further, NIM declined sequentially despite sharp rise in lending yields owing to continued pressure on cost of funds and one-off in 4QFY19. Notably, advances and deposits grew by 19% YoY each. Loan growth during the quarter was driven by retail loans, which grew by 26% YoY. CASA ratio continued to move southwards. Nonetheless,...

Higher retail slippages not a structural issue Federal Bank (FBL) reported 1QFY20 results with the key takeaways being: (1) Overall slippages increased to Rs 4.15bn for the quarter compared with Rs 2.56bn for 4QFY19 mainly due to higher retail slippages but we do not see this as a structural problem (2) NIM remained broadly flat, declining 2 bps to 3.15% QoQ supported by favourable business mix and loan re-pricing (3) Core fee income rose 25% YoY. Management had previously indicated that fee income traction would be a key RoA expansion driver going forward and (4) Digital strategy continued to display encouraging outcomes and augurs well for opex control (See detailed conference call takeaways on page 2 for significant incremental colour).
