The broker expects PPoP (Profit of Preprocessing Operations) to grow at 15% YoY. “Loan growth remained robust at ~21%, led by healthy contribution from all sectors. NIM will be biased above >4% led by higher asset yields,” it said.

“We expect provisions to remain at low levels given lower slippages and better paths towards recovery/upgrading. While we are building at ~2% (~Rs 45 billion), we are seeing a strong note on recovery to continue causing downward pressure from an asset quality perspective.”
