Key Points

The company’s growth is underpinned by its strong Net Interest Margin (NII), which over FY15 to 9MFY18 has improved by 90bps to 6.9%. Despite the aggregate portfolio, the yields declined over FY15 to 9MFY18, however the margins have improved, which is attributed to falling cost of borrowings over the similar period. The cost of borrowings has declined by 280bps over FY15 to 9MFY18 led by its diversified borrowing profile and strong credit rating. The company’s average corporate portfolio yields (14.1% in FY17) is on the higher side.

IndoStar has been able to maintain a high quality loan portfolio through itsrobust credit assessment and risk management framework. The company primarily provides secured loans to manufacturing and service companies, it does not intend to lend money to unsecured business. As on December 31, 2017, its credit exposure that is secured is 88.8%. The company lend to borrowers with proven track record and strong cash flow, besides it obtains sufficient collateral. Further, it actively monitors the performance of its loans and the quality of loan portfolio, which is reflected by company’s low rate of Gross NPAs (1.7% for Q3FY18) and Net NPAs (1.3% for Q3FY18).

Key Risk

The company, over the last one year has entered into new lines of business (Housing finance and Vehicle finance). If the company is unable to successfully run the new businesses profitably, the financial condition may be impacted.

As of December 31, 2017, the company has significant exposure in real estate sector lending. The total credit exposure to this particular sector as at December 31, 2017 is 41.6%. Any significant negative trend in this sector could increase the level of non-performing assets in its portfolio and may adversely affect its financial performance.

Conclusion

At upper range of the price band, the stock, post IPO dilution is available at a valuation of 1.8x FY18 P/ABV, which is attractive. According to us, once the company’s future growth strategy streamlines and balance sheet improves, the return ratios would further improve. We recommend SUBSCRIBE to the issue.

    This article claims RJio was given a "Backdoor Entry" into the 4G Based Voice Routing. The peculiar aspect is without the Voice License, Rjio would have been a mere ISP. With the license, it is now a holistic communications service provider, with ability to exponentially scale the bouquet of products. The events indicate it was meticulously planned way before the auctions because the auctions were clear on the agenda: 4G for internet only.
