Investment rationale
SBI Cards reported earnings 17% higher than our estimate due to lower than expected provisioning (3.3% net credit costs) as the stress pool continued to shrink (GS II/GSIII at 8 .5%/2.2%). Commercial momentum continues to gain ground in terms of CIF (+17% YoY), unit spend (+32% YoY) and unit receivables (+7% YoY) leading to revenue growth of commissions (+28% over one year). However, NIMs remained under pressure at 13% (200bps below pre-Covid levels) with a sub-optimal share of revolving loans at 25% (Q4FY20: 40%). The share of revolving loans continued its downward trend and remains a key controllable element to generate higher revenue per card. While the recent RBI credit card guidelines are likely to have negligible impact on the company’s wallet, potential MDR cap regulations for credit cards remain an overhang, although the brokerage says that SBI Cards has adequate profitability offsets. It changes FY23/24 earnings estimates by 3/1% to account for the lower share of revolving loans, partially offset by higher fee income (higher spend per card), and maintains the purchase with a revised target price of INR 1,246 (38x FY24 EPS)
