Sharekhan's research report on Bank of Baroda


Bank of Baroda (BOB) reported PAT at Rs. 2,168 crore (up 79% yoy/22% qoq), which was above consensus and our estimates (33%) mainly on account of lower credit cost reported during the quarter (0.9% of average advances versus 2.0% last quarter). BOB reported healthy loan growth of 20% y-o-y/3% q-o-q versus 10% y-o-y in the last quarter, led by strong growth in retail book (23% y-o-y), corporate book (17% y-o-y), and overseas book (31%). Core operating profit grew by 17.4% y-o-y but declined by 29% q-o-q. The sharp decline in core PPoP from last quarter was mainly due to lower core fee income q-o-q and lower recovery q-o-q.
