Businesses have raised worries over the bank’s higher than anticipated credit expenses and vulnerabilities lying ahead over the political guarantees of microfinance advance waivers in Assam and West Bengal.

“Bandhan Bank’s 3QFY21 net benefit of Rs 6.4 billion missed our gauge by 20% principally because of a higher-than-anticipated credit cost.

Bandhan Bank’s microfinance net advance book was up 32 percent YoY in Q3FY21 supporting absolute credit development of 23 percent, YoY. Notwithstanding, political guarantees of microfinance advance waivers in Assam (14% of MFI book). The impending decisions in West Bengal (half of MFI’s book) are headwinds for the business, it said.

We subsequently downsize our rating from Buy to Hold with a changed objective cost of Rs 370 (from Rs 460 prior) by esteeming the bank at 2.7xFY23E ABV,” ICICI Direct said.
