Investment rationale
UNBK had a mixed quarter with earnings beaten by cash gains, lower operating expenses and tax expenses. Provisions continued to be elevated with new slippages up 66% QoQ due to a large corporate account, while the outlook looks better as evidenced by a further reduction in SMA/restructured loans. Loan growth accelerated and was supported by all segments – corporate, agriculture, retail and MSMEs. It reduces PAT estimates by 17% and 13% for FY23 and 24, respectively, due to lower other income (rising bond yields) and estimates a RoA/RoE of 0.7%/12.4 % for UNBK in FY24. It maintains BUY with a TP of INR50 (based on 0.6x FY24E ABV)
