Quality franchise at attractive valuation
Andhra bank posted quality volume growth in total business of 26.5% (CAGR in FY08-10) with improvement in margin on the back of lesser liability costs and reported further improvement in asset quality. Going forward in FY10-12, we expect compounded growth of 21.5% in business with slight improvement in margin to 2.96% in FY12 from 2.84% in FY10 mainly driven by faster re-pricing of assets. We estimate the bank's return ratios to remain robust; traction in return on assets would come from higher margin, operating cost efficiency and lesser credit cost though much lower treasury gains would dent the profitability. We estimate that in FY12, the bank would report RoAA and RoAE of 1.21% and 24.9% respectively. We maintain our earning estimates for FY11 and FY12 and reiterate our BUY rating with a price target of Rs266 at 2.1x adjusted book value FY12. • Strong volume growth: We expect credit book expansion would mainly be driven by SME, retail and agriculture sectors. In recent past, growth in SME sector came from across segments particularly from rice mills, iron & steel and textile industries. The bank's retail loans composition is still contained at 15.5% and it is expected that the bank would further increase exposure to the sector; under the sector, high-yielding non-agriculture gold loans reported robust growth of three times to Rs13.8 bn. Going forward, the bank's management expects strong growth in the sub-segment to continue. FY2008 FY2009
