Gross direct premium income (GDPI) dropped 5.3% YoY, negatively impacted by Motor GDPI (adversely impacted by lockdown) and Health, Travel & PA (owing to lower disbursement from Banks and NBFCs). We expect steady performance from P&C; segment and Motor segment should do well in the coming quarters given the regulatory changes. Given limited upside, we maintain our HOLD rating on the stock with a revised target price of Rs. 1,398 based on 7.5x FY22E BVPS. Industry GDPI weighed down by COVID...

In Q4FY20, Gross Direct Premium Income (GDPI) dropped 8.7% YoY, negatively impacted by de-growth of 4.1% YoY in Motor GDPI. Net premium increased 6.7% YoY, owing to Fire segment (+89.0% YoY). ROE increased 130bps YoY, supported by PAT (+23.8% YoY). The company's strong distribution network should help the company to withstand the challenging times. Hence, we maintain our HOLD rating with a revised target price of Rs. 1,321 based on 7.0x FY22E BVPS. GDPI declines on weak Motor segment...

Over FY21E we expect lockdown and partial working conditions to result in lower new motor vehicle policy sales, lower renewals, and also lower motor CORs. We expect health premiums to grow with some increase in claims, but over time we expect higher pricing power in health to protect profitability. Overall projecting FY21E remains a challenge but we believe this period should be better for company profitability. Additionally, changing regulations in motor are expected to drive down both claims and tariffs, creating supernormal profitability in the short term. We believe that this period (of super-normal profitability) will be short lived, as we expect IRDAI to clamp down on TP pricing restricting profitability. We believe market is not factoring this risk, and post recent run-up in share price we downgrade ICICIGI to a SELL with a reduced TP of Rs 1,042 (Mar-22E P/E of 26.2x and a P/ABV of 5.5x). ICICIGI reported an in-line ex. crop 4QFY20 NEP growth of 13.8% YoY to Rs 23.6bn. Underwriting profits were at Rs (1.3)bn (vs. exp. of Rs 0.1bn) as calc. COR increased to 104.1% (+439/467bps YoY/QoQ). Lower post prov. investment yield of 6.7%, meant a 12.6% lower than estimated APAT of Rs 2.8bn (+23.8/-4.1% YoY/QoQ).

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 Mar-20/FY20 GDPI grew -16.2/+11.7% YoY to Rs 67.1/911.8bn. Decline in Mar-20 was along expected lines as new policy sales have declined as a result of the lockdown and renewals have been impacted by the forbearance (until 15-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.

The combined ratio worsened to 98.7% compared with 95.9% in Q3FY19 mostly due to roll out of long term insurance policies. The de-growth in the Crop segment and higher loss ratio in the Motor OD segment would affect the profitability in the short term. Hence, we...

We believe that this period (of super-normal profitability) will be short lived, as we expect IRDAI to clamp down on TP pricing restricting profitability. We believe market is not factoring this risk, accordingly we rate ICICIGI a SELL with a reduced TP of Rs 1,126 (Dec-21E P/E of 26x and a P/ABV of 5.7x).

ICICIGI is best positioned to benefit from changing regulations in motor which will drive down both claims and tariffs. However, we expect high competitive intensity and lower motor TP tariffs (de-tariffication/price reduction) to restrict underwriting margins and investment profits. Accordingly, we rate ICICIGI a SELL with a TP of Rs 1,060 (Sep-21E P/E of 26x and a P/ABV of 5.6x). ICICIGIs 2QFY20 saw an NWP decline of 2.1% YoY to Rs 21.7bn, increase in COR (calc.) to 103.7% (+184bps YoY) as expenses increased while claims ratio declined, and lower investment yields of ~8.4% (-121/-111bps YoY/QoQ).
