Bank Results Season: Shriram Transport Finance Jumps On Leasing Growth

Income of INR 1594 B produced a record INR 3.37B profits for the banker wannabe as Shriram Transport relied on Leasing Income to replace the more lending business friendly Gross and Net interest income. In its core Truck leasng business the industry leader is still moving all the gravy with a dominant 50% market share. Consolidated Net profit is INR 3.67 B

Meanwhile Indian and European brokerages (Credit Suisse) have been upping the ante on the operator since results were announced . Its anual EPS is now riding near 60 at INR 29.14 and the growth clip of 20% of topline and 30% of PAT is likely to be an easy win for the future Bank. Off book AUMs are increasing especially in Q3 with bilaterals to banks making 80% of its securitisation in FY12

The retail market is inspiring improving NIMs for Shriram. Management commentary highlights changes in priority sector definitions to also improve Shriram’s relationships with banks. It had only INR 400 crores in Q2 securitised against an improving market volume of InR 34 B till mid October. Net NPAs are a high 2.89% but have been declining steadily int he last 3-4 quarters from above 3%

Shriram is apparently waiting to season its new leased assets to benefit from an increase to Off book AUMs and tweak new securitisation agreements to the more adaptable PTC mode where credit enhancements are still allowed ( disallowed on direct assignment) while the latest cap of 8% lending rate on priority sector characterisation of a loan might be also apossible change without due pressure on profits as its market leader status allows to maintain and improve NIMs
