It was a tough quarter for HDFC, although the lower credit costs helped the company to report higher profits in the quarter. On the one hand, there was a sharp turnaround into losses on insurance debt investment portfolio due to sharp spike in yields. Secondly, the asset quality of HDFC also tapered in the quarter.

Let us look at the top line of HDFC first and foremost. For the Dec-21 quarter, HDFC Ltd reported a sharp -20.3% fall in total revenues at Rs.31,298 crore on a consolidated YoY basis. The top line took a major hit in the quarter on the insurance business as the gains on investments in life insurance dipped from a net gain of Rs10,044cr to a net loss of Rs-306cr in the quarter. Revenues from general insurance business was also lower.

The lending business was robust overall. As a result, the income from the core home loan lending business was up and even in the life insurance business premiums were sharply higher on a YoY basis. The net interest income or NII for the first nine months of fiscal FY22 was 14% higher at Rs.12,519 crore. On a sequential basis, the revenues were once again sharply lower by -18.9% largely due to the investment factor.

Let us now turn to the operating profits or the pre-tax profits of HDFC Ltd. For the Dec-21 quarter, pre-tax profits were up on a YoY basis by 4.55% at Rs.7,121 crore. During the quarter, HDFC witnessed net interest margins or NIMs at 3.6% while the all-important credit costs were sharply lower at 0.27% in tune with falling yields in the market.

As a result, the cost to income ratio for the first nine months of the fiscal stood neutral at 8.1%, which is an extremely comfortable level to be in for a housing finance company.  PBT margins improved very sharply from 17.35% in Dec-20 quarter to 22.75% in the Dec-21 quarter. Operating margins were also sharply up on a sequential basis of Sep-21 quarter.

Now we turn to the bottom line. The net Profits for the Dec-21 quarter was up 12.75% YoY at Rs.5,837 crore. This was largely due to the robust operating performance getting transmitted to the bottom line of HDFC. HDFC reported collection efficiency of 98.9%, which is fairly impressive for a company of that size. 

On a slightly discordant note, the gross NPLs for the individual loans business stood at 1.44% but gross NPLs of the non-individual business was much higher at 5.04%. The latter is the segment predominantly comprising of loans given to builders and developers.

PAT margins improved from 13.19% in the Dec-20 quarter to 18.67% in Dec-21 quarter. The PAT margins were also sharply higher sequentially. Overall, asset quality has weakened in the quarter.
