LIC Housing Finance (LICHF) reported a healthy set of numbers for 4QFY2013, with net interest income growth of 20.3% yoy and earnings growth of 24.7% yoy. Key highlights of the results are the sequential improvement in NIMs (36bp) and improvement witnessed on the asset quality front (Gross and Net NPA ratio lower by 13bp and 9bp, respectively to 0.61% and 0.36%). NIMs and Asset quality, both improve qoq: LICHF’s loan book grew strongly by 23.3% yoy to `77,812cr during 4QFY2013. Loans to the individual segment grew by 25.5% yoy, while loans to the developer segment declined by 16.3% yoy and 5.5% sequentially. Hence, the share of developer loans declined from 3.9% in 3QFY2013 to 3.4% for 4QFY2013. During the quarter, the margins increased by 36bp qoq, primarily due to the 27bp decline in the cost of funds, owing to ~25bp cut in base rate by most of its funding banks (around 30% of total interest bearing liabilities constitute bank loans) and also, due to downward pricing for some of its NCDs, which were due for re-pricing. Going forward, the Management targets an increase in the proportion of developer loans (3.4% currently) and Loan against property (2.6% currently) to 5% each by FY2014, to improve margins. As per the Management, in 1QFY2014, ~2,700cr of fixed-o-floaty loans are expected to re-price upwards by 200bp and in FY2014, ~9,000cr of NCDs having average costs of ~9.6%, are scheduled to reprise downwards. On the asset quality front, the company reported an improvement, as both gross and Net NPA levels came down sequentially by 12.5% and 15.8%, respectively, on an absolute basis. During the quarter, the company witnessed slippage in an account worth ~`100cr in the developer loan book; however it recovered ~`50-60cr from an account (of the three accounts, that slipped in 3QFY2013) and reported further improvement in asset quality of individual loans, which aided it to report a sequential improvement in Gross NPA levels. The PCR improved by 230bp sequentially to 41.4%, as of 4QFY2013. Outlook and valuation: We expect the company to post a healthy loan book CAGR of ~20% over FY2013-15E, which is likely to reflect in an earnings CAGR of ~20%, over the same period. At the current market price, the stock is trading at a P/ABV multiple of 1.5x FY2015E ABV. Historically, the stock has traded at 0.8-2.1x one-year forward P/ABV multiple over FY2006-13. We recommend an Accumulate rating on the stock with a target price of `281.

Strong traction continues in Individual loan book; Developer disbursements decline sequentially
LICHF’s loan book grew strongly by 23.4% yoy (7.0% qoq) to `77,812cr during 4QFY2013. Loans to the individual segment grew by 25.5% yoy (7.5% qoq) to `75,147cr, while loans to the developer segment declined by 16.3% yoy (5.5% qoq) to `2,665cr. Hence, the share of developer loans to overall loans further declined from 3.9% in 3QFY2013 and 5.0% in 4QFY2012 to 3.4% in 4QFY2013. Disbursement growth in the individual segment (`7,536cr) was healthy during 4QFY2013 at 18.8% yoy, while the disbursements to developer loans stood at `189cr compared to `497cr in 3QFY2013 and `274cr in 4QFY2012. The developer loan book has continued to contract sequentially quarter after quarter over the past few years; a similar trend could be seen in this quarter as well.

Margins increase sequentially
During 4QFY2013, the margins remained flat yoy at 2.45%, however, increased by 36bp qoq, primarily due to the 27bp decline in the cost of funds, owing to ~25bp cut in base rate by most of its funding banks (around 30% of total interest bearing liabilities constitute bank loans) and also, due to downward pricing for some of its NCDs, which were due for re-pricing. The yield on advances rose marginally by 3bp qoq to 10.78%, thereby taking the spread to 1.38%, up by 30bp qoq. Going forward, the Management targets an increase in the proportion of developer loans (3.4% currently) and Loan against property (2.6% currently) to 5% each by FY2014 to improve margins. As per the Management, in 1QFY2014, ~2,700cr of the loans given under fixed-o-floaty scheme (fixed rates for 2-3 yrs and floating rates afterwards) are expected to re-price upwards by 200bp and in FY2014, ~9,000cr of NCDs having average costs of ~9.6%, are scheduled to reprise downwards (recent NCDs have been raised at cost of 8.9%).

Processing fees remain subdued
The processing fees (other operating income) have remained weak for the company on account of 1) abolishment of prepayment charges, and 2) lower share of developer loans (processing fees higher on loans sanctioned to developer segment compared to individual segment).

Asset quality improves sequentially
On the asset quality front, the company reported improvement, as both gross and Net NPA levels came down sequentially by 12.5% and 15.8%, respectively, on an absolute basis. During the quarter, the company witnessed slippage in an account worth ~`100cr in the developer loan book; however it recovered ~`50-60cr from an account (of the three accounts, that slipped in 3QFY2013) and reported further improvement in asset quality of individual loans, which aided it to report sequential improvement in Gross NPA levels. Gross NPA ratio improved by 13bp qoq to 0.61%, while net NPA ratio improved by 9bp sequentially to 0.36%. PCR improved by 230bp sequentially to 41.4%, as of 4QFY2013. The Management remains confident of recovering the slipped accounts in the developer loan book (two accounts slipped in 3QFY2013 and one in 4QFY2013) over the next few quarters, as it has adequate collaterals (as high as 2.5x the loan amount). In the remaining developer loan book, the Management remains comfortable on the asset quality front and has reiterated its plans to grow the share of developer book to 5% by FY2015 from 3.4% in 4QFY2013. Going forward, beginning 2QFY2014, teaser rate provisioning on fixed-o-floaty loans is expected to start reversing back (on loans, which have completed one year of satisfactory performance) and hence, we have built in significant reversal of teaser-rate provisioning in overall provisioning expenses for LICHF in FY2014.

Investor arguments
Margins improvement to be modest and gradual
LICHF has witnessed a substantial margin squeeze from the levels of 3.1% in FY2011 to 2.2% as of FY2013, due to a) significant fall in share of high yielding developer loan book from 8.5% as of FY2011 to 3.4% as of FY2013 and b) recent increase in the competitive intensity on the retail side of its loan book, as banks (particularly PSUs) have become aggressive, owing to higher risk adjusted yields offered in this segment. In fact, most of these banks have priced their products at rates much closer to the bank funding costs for LICHF (bank funding forms ~30% of total interest bearing liabilities for LICHF as of 4QFY2013). In our view, significant increase in share of higher-yielding developer loans and loan against property, to total loan book remain critical for the margins to improve substantially from here on, as we believe competitive intensity in the retail loan book is likely to prevail. The Management targets an increase in the share of developer loans and loan against property from the current 3.4% and 2.6%, respectively to ~5.0% each by FY2014. Hence, though we expect margins to improve from the current levels, the increase, however, is likely to be modest and gradual.

Outlook and valuation
Driven by a strong parent brand and success of its home loan products (80% of the incremental disbursements are in products having interest rate which is initially fixed, later converted to floating), we expect the company to post a healthy loan book CAGR of ~20% over FY2013-15E, which is likely to reflect in earnings CAGR of ~20%, over the same period. At the current market price, the stock is trading at a P/ABV multiple of 1.5x FY2015E ABV. Historically, the stock has traded at 0.8-2.1x one-year forward P/ABV multiple over FY2006-13. We recommend an Accumulate rating on the stock with a target price of `281.
