Motilal Oswal's research report on Bank of Baroda
Bank of Baroda (BoB) reported PAT was 69% below our estimate at INR 2.5b owing to elevated NPL provisions (annualized credit costs of 1.86%. PPoP was in-line (52% YoY) as higher than expected trading gains (INR 8.4b vs. est. of INR 7.5b) compensated for 4% miss on NII (INR 31.3b vs. INR 33b est.).
