Sharekhan's research report on Kotak Mahindra Bank
Kotak Mahindra Bank’s (KMB) Q3FY2021 numbers were healthy, with strong operational numbers, improved asset quality (on a sequential basis), healthy CASA, and advances traction, which were positives. The bank’s gross NPA ratio and net NPA ratio (proforma basis) would have been 3.27% and 1.24%, respectively (was 2.7% and 0.7% in Q2FY2021); but proactive front-loading of provisions with restructured assets at 0.28% indicate stable asset-quality outlook. The bank’s management commentary is more positive on growth, also seen in strong sequential growth in advances, which is encouraging.
We value the standalone bank at ~4.5x its FY2023E book value and its subsidiaries at ~Rs. 490 per share. We recommend a Buy on KMB with an SOTP-based price target (PT) of Rs. 2,130.
