February 18, 2014 | Brokerage | Share:

Karachi, February 18, 2014 (PPI-OT): While CY13 results were subdued EPS: PkR2I.62, +3%YoY), there is enough to suggest that the banks outlook is more promising, with management looking to utilize existing capital buffer (CAR: 22.2%) for balance sheet growth (Islamic banking) and diversification (foreign operations).

According to AKD Securities, together with improving asset quality (9%YoY reduction in NPL stock}, further cost efficiency (workforce rightsizing through a VSS} and the highest CASA since CYOS, AKD Securities sees MCB posting a 12% NPAT CAGR across CYI3-CYI8F vs. the previous 5yr NPAT CAGR of Just 7%. As a result, while AKD Securities marginally tweak AKD Securities’ EPS estimates (+1% on avenge across CYI4F-CYI6F), AKD Securities believes MCB is in a position To justify its premium valuation multiples (CYI4F P/B: 218x , P/E: 1i.92x D/Y, 5.3%). AKD Securities’ revised target price of PkR27O/share (up from PkR2S5 /share reviously) implies a Neutral stance.

C’Y13 result review: MCB posted NFAT of PkR218Bbn (EPS: PkR21 62) in CY13, up by a muted 5%YoY. 40CY13 NPAT of PkR426bn (EPS: PkR4.21) was lower by 21%QoQ (ex-VSS: -9%YoY). Key highlights of CY13 results were: I) 7%YoY decline in tighter NIMs, 2) total provisioning reversals of PkR2.84bn vs. provisions of PkR47Omn n CYI2, 3) 20%YoY growth in non-interest income largely due to capital gains and 4) lO% YoY increase in admin expenses. Alongside, the result a PkRS.5ishare final dividend brought the full-year CVI 3 dividend to PkRI4O/share while a 10% bonus was also announced.

LT positives coming through: While CYI3 results were subdued, the bank’s outlook is more promising with management looking to utilize existing capital buffer (CAR: 22.2%) for balance sheet growth and diversification. Over the medium-term this will arise via an aggressive bent towards Islamic banking either through a separate subsidiary or through 55% acquisition of Burj Bank Limited) and potential entry into the GCC/African markets. Expansion in the Islamic space is viable in AKD Securities’ view given its swifter growth Trajectory (+25%VoY in SepI 3), exclusion from minimum dopostt rate directives and the SBP’s strong Support structure.

Earnings drivers: AKD Securities expects MCB to deliver a 5yr NPAT CAGR of 12% Vs . the previous 5yr NPAT CAGR of 7%, driven by I) better efficiency post a VSS for 571 employees at a cost of PkRI .U6bn, 2) reduced credit costs going by the 9%YoY decline in NJPLs/ coverage in excess of 85%, 3) continued increase in CASA which is now at a Byr high of -88% and 4) anticipated double-digit loan growth CAGR across the medium-term.

Investment perspective: MCB has gained 41% over the last 12m to trade Ate CYI4F P/B of2.18x, PIE of 11.92x and DiYof53%. AKD Securities likes the banks newly aggressive bent which should drive a 12% NPAT CAGR across the medium-term while payouts should sustain given MCBs strong capital buffer. That said, AKD Securities believes positives are already priced into premium valuations where AKD Securities’ revised TP of PkR2lOIshare implies a Neutral stance.
