Motilal Oswal Report

The Federal Bank Ltd. posted strong Q2 FY21 operating performance on healthy net interest income growth aided by:

Higher provisions toward Covid-19 though affected profit after tax. Overall, the bank holds approximately 50 basis point provisions toward the Covid-19 impact.

We have fine-tuned our estimates for FY21 and increased it for FY22E by approximately 10% owing to an increase in our margin and credit cost estimates.
