IndusInd Bank (IIB) posted better-than-expected Q4FY21 PAT of Rs 9.3billion with visible signs of improvement across critical business metrics. Loan momentum improved—driven by strong retail disbursements. Most importantly, deposits rose further 6.8% QoQ—a commendable feat. Asset quality is along expected lines, and we reckon provision buffers are adequate to deal with current uncertainty. IIB has been steadily delivering on core performance. Stabilisation of deposits and its stance of building on its existing provision buffer render outlook stable. Factoring these in, we are raising the target to 1.8x P/B (earlier 1.5x), which yields a TP of Rs 1,150 (up from Rs 880). Consequently, we are upgrading IIB to ‘buy’ from ‘hold’.
