Slippage, NPAs and NII: What are they?
For a regular person or company, loans are a liability that they need to pay off. But for banks, there is a twist, the loans are assets. The loans that a bank gives to its customers are assets from which it earns money in form of interest. An increase in the NII shows that the bank has increased the income from interest, which is a good thing.
But what happens when someone does not pay back the loan? That is where NPA and slippages come in. Slippages, in banking parlance, is when a bank’s assets become non-performing asset (NPA) because a borrower has not paid interest for over 90 days. An increase in NPA and slippages is not a good thing for banks as it shows a reduction in the quality of loans they have given to customers.
Valuation and Outlook
IndusInd Bank has reported better performance on most of the counts with the beat on the operating performance front. The growth momentum is picking up, and the liability profile is also shaping up well. The balance sheet position remained strong and the margin remained stable. With the increasing credit system and management’s focus on the PC-5 (Planning Cycle -5) strategy, we believe the loan growth of the bank to remain strong with a focus remaining on building granular liability profile. We maintain our positive view and have a “Buy” rating on the stock. The target price of ₹1,236, is based on 1.6x FY24E ABV. The bank is expected to deliver 1.4% RoA and 13% RoE by FY24E.
