Motilal Oswal's research report on ICICI Bank
ICICIBC reported strong earnings performance, led by robust core PPOP, aided by healthy NII growth (5bp NIM expansion). Also, lower provisions (23% below our estimate) drove the earnings beat v/s our estimate. The bank is thus progressing well towards earnings normalization. Fresh slippages stood elevated at INR72.3b (annualized ~4% of loans), pre-dominantly from the Retail/Business Banking portfolio. However, this was partially compensated by higher recoveries and upgrades. The GNPA/NNPA ratio grew by 19bp/2bp QoQ to 5.15%/1.16%. PCR remains stable at 78.4%, the highest in the industry. Restructured loans stood controlled at 0.7% of loans (v/s 0.5% in FY21).
We maintain our Buy rating with a revised SoTP-based TP of INR835/share (2.6x FY23E ABV for the bank).
