Will not need to dip into capital for provisioning –Indiabulls Housing

Excerpts of an interview with Mr. Gagan Banga, Vice Chairman and MD, Indiabulls Housing Finance (IBULHSGFIN), aired on CNBC-TV18dated 15th September 2020:
• Indiabulls Housing has raised Rs 6,830 mn via QIP and Rs 5,220 mn through stake sale in OakNorth bank to build capital buffer. This will be used as growth capital. With this capital raise, the capital adequacy has gone up to 31%.
• Higher capital buffer will also help as a positive affirmation for credit rating agencies. Indiabulls Housing has been on a downward rating trajectory from AAA to AA. Management wants to get it back atleast to AA+ levels.
• Management has plans to increase capital further by about Rs 10,000 mn and increase capital adequacy up to 32%.
• In 1QFY21, AUM was flattish and similar trend persists for 2QFY21. Management expects growth from 2HFY21.
• Indiabulls Housing continues its strategy of reducing the real estate developer book. The gross developer book has reduced by Rs 180 bn in the last 2 years. In 1QFY21 and 2QFY21 the sell down has been about Rs 30 bn and 21 bn respectively. These developer loans are being refinanced by Indian PSU and private banks, as well as through a few securitization transactions with foreign institutions.
• Of the Rs 180 bn sell downs so far, there has been no discount required as the properties are prime with good LTVs of ballpark 50%.
• As a result of reduction in developer loans book, Indiabulls Housing is getting converted into a retail lending focused company.
• As Indiabulls Housing pursues growth in retail book, management expects AUM growth of 10% for FY21E. True to the adopted asset light model, the balance sheet growth will remain lower at 5%.
• Within retail book, the ratio of home loans to Loan Against Property (LAP) is 60:40.LAP segment on a risk adjusted basis has attractive RoA. On the asset quality front, this product has a 50% LTV and monthly principal amortization and the product is performing well.
• Through the last few months, initially 50-55% of LAP borrowers had taken moratorium but by August the number had declined to 20%. By September, the EMIs are getting backed and there is no significant increase in people who are not able to pay.
• Indiabulls Housing also raised Rs 15 bn to put into completion of projects which is a positive for the industry. Over the last 60-90 days, apartments across the board are selling at a strong momentum.
• Indiabulls Housing is now at a quarterly pre-provisioning operating profit (PPOP) level of about Rs 6,000 mn. Like in 1QFY21, material portion of the PPOP will be used to make provisions throughout FY21E. Indiabulls Housing will not need to dip into capital for provisioning.

Ravneet Gill, MD&CEO, Yes Bank: Wants Yes Bank to retain its corporate character.

Dated: 20th August 2019

Excerpts from an interview published in The Hindu Business line dated 19th August 2019.

  • On the recent QIP: The Yes Bank QIP was oversubscribed over 3 times. This when two other IPOs in the market were undersubscribed.  Yes Bank could raise Rs 1,930 cr as the shareholders’ approval was limited to a dilution of 10%. The QIP impacted the CET-1 ratio positively by 60 bps (8.6% vs. 8.0% prior to QIP). Management plans to add another 20-25 bps through balance sheet rationalization. This will be done by reducing the corporate book.
  • Historically Yes Bank has been a strong structured finance bank.  Eventually, management wants to free up capital to grow on the retail side. Management plans to change the mix of corporate to retail in terms of revenue from the current 67:33 to 50:50 by 2025. But management wants Yes Bank to retain its corporate look, feel and character and not become a retail bank.
  • The stressed asset book is not very granular. There are a handful of entities that are facing illiquidity. If those are resolved, the complexion of the book would be completely different.
  • The sub-investment book (BB and below assets) currently stands at Rs 29,000 cr. Three names account for nearly 80% of the book. 2 out of these 3 that account for around Rs 9,000 cr should be fully resolved in the current quarter. This will release capital for the bank and risk perception around Yes Bank will moderate.
  • There is no other bank as digitally enabled as Yes Bank. The market does not recognize that yet.
  • Best way to lower Risk-weighted assets (RWA) is to try and lend to high-rated corporates. For that, cost of funding needs to be competitive which can be achieved by strengthening of the liability profile.
