Asset quality deterioration was on expected lines, and from pre-identified stressed pools. However, we remain cautious on RBK's asset quality for the following reasons (1) 3QFY20 saw a sharp ~Rs 7bn rise in BB and below rated corp loans, (2) Recent asset quality trends reflect poorly on underwriting and risk practices , and (3) Broader economic conditions. While the capital raise is a big positive and will support the bank's growth trajectory, it does not entirely mitigate the above risks. We maintain NEUTRAL. Yet again RBKs PPOP was better than expected, due to sharp NIM improvement and one-off staff cost reversals. PAT was above estimates, even as provisions remained elevated. Slippages remained high, and were mostly from anticipated stress. Maintain NEUTRAL with a TP of Rs 348 (1.5x Dec-21E ABV of Rs 232).

22 January 2020 RBK reported moderation in business growth, led by muted wholesale book; deposit growth stood flat sequentially. Slippages remained higher while elevated credit cost impacted earnings. Though operating performance remained strong (fees, NIMs and PPoP), elevated slippages trajectory and higher credit cost is likely to impact earnings in the near term. We cut our EPS estimates for FY20/FY21 by 17%/13%, primarily due to lower business growth and increase in our credit cost estimates given the higher slippages and decline in PCR ratio. NII grew 41% YoY to INR9.2b on 22bp QoQ expansion in margin to 4.6%. Core fee income grew 37% YoY, led by credit card fees, which constituted ~57% of total fees. PPoP growth, thus, remained strong at 47% YoY to INR7.3b. Loan growth moderated to 20% YoY, led by slowdown in the wholesale book, which grew 3% YoY (-4% QoQ) while strong growth in the retail book continued (+49% YoY).

With the sharp rise in anticipated' stress (up ~80% in a quarter), we expect significantly higher credit costs ahead, denting RoAAs till FY21E. We find this trend rather alarming and asset quality seems perched on a slippery slope. Reflexivity will increasingly play out here, with the bank's future prospects being dependent on fund raise (not factored in our estimates). While a full blown implosion is not yet apparent to us, we are compelled to cut valuation multiple to 1.50x vs. 2.0 earlier. Maintain NEUTRAL with a TP of Rs 294 (1.50x Sep-21E ABV of Rs 196). Even as RBKs operating performance was better than expected, the near doubling of anticipated stress since 1QFY20 dampens near term recovery. With asset quality on a slippery slope, we reduce our target multiple to 1.50x from 2.0x. Maintain NEUTRAL with a TP of Rs 294 (1.50x Sept-21E ABV of Rs 196).

Zero MDR rule does not apply to credit card businesses of banks Nil merchant discount rate (MDR) announced by the Finance Minister in the recent Budget speech is applicable only to debit card businesses of banks and not their credit card businesses.

We have cut earnings estimates for FY20/21E by 25/19% to factor higher slippages and consequent provisions. A fund raise is still possible, and will be crucial for RBL to provide for the upcoming stress and maintain growth rates. We are factoring Rs 35bn (at Rs 500/sh), pushing up est. ABVs by 27/20% over FY20/21E. Guidance on stress, and concentration commentary are red flags that underpin our DOWNGRADE to NEUTRAL. We value RBL at 2x Jun-21E ABV (vs. 3x earlier). Our TP is Rs 512. RBK ticked most boxes in 1QFY20, but guidance on asset quality (potential corporate slippages of Rs 10bn) is seriously disconcerting at the very least. DOWNGRADE to NEUTRAL. Sensitivity to asset quality outcomes is high.

20 July 2019 RBK reported 1QFY20 PAT at INR2.7b (41% YoY growth, inline) though the guidance on asset quality will drive elevated credit cost and impact earnings trajectory over the coming quarters.

Our recent interactions with RBK suggest less than commensurate credit risk, achieved via tight (and differentiated) credit policies. RBL Banks (RBK) focus on niche credit segments (credit cards and micro finance) gives it better spreads, system-beating growth and a multi-year addressable opportunity that enables it to outperform peers. Our positive stance is reflected in consistently robust operating metrics. RBKs scorching pace of growth along with its unconventional (but consciously chosen) evolution has invited skepticism. Maintain BUY with a TP of Rs 803 (3x FY21E ABV of Rs 268).

With an unblemished record, abundant opportunity and focus on high yielding granular credit segments, RBK will sustainably outperform peers on growth and margins. Op-lev and credit costs (esp. on the cards portfolio) are key monitorables, as they drive RoAA expansion hereon. With a book value-accretive fund raise in FY20, RBK can get capital to fuel its ambitious growth aspirations. Our opex (29% CAGR) and flattish NIM assumptions (3.9%) over FY19-21E provide upside risk to estimates. An all round 4Q show and an impending (book accretive) fund raise justify our positive stance on RBK. Maintain BUY with a TP of Rs 803 (3x Mar-21E ABV of Rs 268).

Maintain BUY with a TP of Rs 626 (3x Dec-20 ABV of Rs 208.5). Healthy loan (+35% YoY) and SA (+8% QoQ) growth, coupled with strong P/L performance characterised by rising NIMs (~4.12%, up for the 8th straight qtr), healthy fee income growth (+51%) driven by credit cards indicate a repeat of 2Qs performance. Asset quality was sequentially stable with continued improvement in coverage (63.2%, +180bps).
