Outlook and Valuation
At the CMP, the stock is trading at 5.7x FY2010E EPS of Rs11.9 and 1.0x FY2010E
Adjusted Book Value of Rs65. While we were earlier factoring in Equity dilution of around 8% in FY2010E, with an evolving macro environment and consequent slow down in
Balance Sheet growth expected, we have changed our estimates reducing credit growth
expectations for FY2010E to 25% and not factored dilution in FY2010E. While falling
Interest rates should help improve the Operating environment for the Bank, the headwinds being faced by the Bank have set back its business expansion, possibly by up to a year and led to slowdown in several Fee Income streams.

Accordingly, we are revising the Bank’s Target P/ABV multiple to 1.5x – implying around 40% discount to the Target multiple assigned to Axis Bank – to arrive at a revised Target Price of Rs98 (Rs166).We maintain a Buy on the stock.
