HDFC Bank reported robust PAT of Rs1,430 crore growing 31.4% y-o-y and 19.2% q-o-q, in line with our expectation and market consensus. NII growth moderated to 12.2% y-o-y & 5.8% q-o-q led by loan growth 22.1% y-o-y and steady NIMs. Fee income saw good traction, up 19.6% y-o-y and 14.1% q-o-q. Cost to income ratio declined 128bps q-o-q to 47.6% due to improvement in operating efficiency. Provisions were down 10.1% q-o-q to Rs329 crore boosted the bottom-line. Broad asset quality remained strong as absolute gross NPAs went up only 6.6% q-o-q with provision coverage of 80.3% in a challenging macro environment. Loan book growth and deposit growth were 3.1% q-o-q and 0.80% q-o-q, resulted into 185bps increase in CD ratio positively impacted NIMs. CASA ratio remained at healthy levels of 47.7% (37bps up q-o-q). Maintain HOLD. Moderate NII growth: NII growth slowed down to 12.2% y-o-y & 5.8% q-o-q led by led by asset growth and steady NIMs at 4.1%. On sequential basis, contraction in corporate loan book, higher growth in high yield retail loan book led to 34bps improvement in loan yields while cost of funds increased slower pace by 20bps q-o-q to 6.41%. NIM remained stable q-o-q to 4.1% reflecting improvement competitive landscape. We expect NII to grow 20.5% over FY11-FY13e driven by 23.5% CAGR in loan book and steady NIMs. Strong momentum in core fee & forex income: Non- interest income accelerated 25.9% y-o-y & 17.2% q-o-q to Rs 1,420 crore against Rs 1,128 crore a year ago. Healthy fee income growth and strong forex income continued to drive non-interest income contributing 33% of operating income. Fee income grew 19.6% y-o-y and 14.1% q-o-q driven by retail businesses. The bank incurred a trading loss of Rs 82 crore against Rs 31 crore trading loss a year ago, dented the profitability. Asset quality remains fairly strong – Broad asset quality continued to be fairly strong as gross NPA increased 6.6% q-o-q basis to Rs 2,021 crore which is equivalent to 1.0% of gross advances. Net NPAs stood at 0.2% with superior coverage ratio of 80.3%. Quarterly trend suggests that credit costs are lower than normalized levels due to better than expected portfolio behavior, so we believe credit cost is likely to revert back to normalized levels medium term. We are building in 65bps & 80bps credit costs in FY12 and FY13 respectively against 53bps in FY11. Valuation & Recommendation HDFC Bank reported excellent operating performance in tough macro environment. Strong core earnings growth, robust fee income growth, steady margins, lower provisions, strong asset quality and stable CASA ratio were key positives from the numbers. Strong growth in retail loan book (largely fixed rate loan book) in last few quarters coupled with beginning of rate easing cycle would augur well for NIMs and NII growth – key catalyst going forward. We expect HDFC Bank to deliver 26.9% CAGR in net earnings over FY11-13e, aided by NII growth, steady fee income growth. At Rs 485 the stock is trading at 3.4x FY13e book and 17.8x FY13e earnings, reflecting strong fundamentals. We have revised upward earnings estimate by 1.6% & 5.6% in FY12 and FY13 respectively factoring higher fee income growth and lower credit costs. We maintain our HOLD rating on the stock with revised target price of Rs540.
