View of Edelweiss Professional Investor Research:
· Overall, we believe the result was above estimates driven largely by the non-interest income growth and overall asset quality and credit cost not deteriorating beyond our estimation. Bank will continue to grow its corporate book robustly growing forward with cautiously growing its vehicle finance book due to asset quality concerns and stressed macro-environment.
· However, slippages remained elevated for the quarter. We need to monitor this number closely going forward as it can have an impact on the asset quality of the bank.
