Allhbd Bnk reported a net profit of Rs3.5bn, Strong asset quality slips marginally


BUY

 

CMP: Rs 136                              Target Price: Rs 150


Allahabad Bank reported a net profit of Rs3.5bn for Q3FY10, in line with our expectations. However, NII at Rs6.8bn was much ahead of our estimate of Rs6.0bn, driven by 13bps qoq expansion in NIMs. Core income got further boost from fee income which grew by 36% yoy.

While we like recent improvements in Allahabad Bank like braodbasing of the deposits (88.2% retail), and pick up in fee income, the asset quality was marginally disappointing. The slippages till date were at 0.9% (1.3% annualized) despite addition of further Rs5.5bn in restructured assets. The total restructured assets till date stood at Rs36.3bn. Also, 30% of the investment in AFS portfolio exposes ALBK to interest rates risk.

Nonetheless, looking at strong earning performance and RoE of ~18% over FY10-11E we believe that the current valuations of 0.9x FY11E ABV are quite attractive. We maintain our BUY rating on the stock with price target of Rs150 with P/ABV multiple of 1.0x FY11E ABV.
