Dolat Capital Report

Indian Bank reported weak net interest income and pre-provision operating profit growth of 1% and 6% YoY respectively on a merged basis, led by high interest reversals including those for previous quarter’s pro forma non performing assets.

Other income grew 25% QoQ, benefitting from higher treasury gains and steel account recovery.

Profit after tax was sharply higher owing to Rs 9 billion of tax write-backs and lower provisions, supporting return on asset of 1.1% for the quarter.

Asset quality trends continued to impress with FY21 slippages at 2.8% (4% pro forma in Q4), over 50 basis points sequential decline in pro forma non performing assets to 9.9%, and provision coverage ratio at 68%.
