Investment Rationale
Robust business momentum, improving NIMs, and muted credit costs will help SBIC deliver superior RoA/RoE of 6-6.3%/27-28% over the medium term. However, owing to intensive competition, especially from the Pvt. banks, maintaining and improving market share will be challenging and remain a key monitorable. The RBI’s proposal on linking of RuPay Credit cards with the UPI is structurally positive for the credit card industry as it will help in increasing the acceptance of Credit cards amongst UPI merchants. This, in turn, would enable credit card issuers to tap into the wallet share of UPI customers or allow the migration of UPI customers to credit cards along with improving the market penetration of credit cards. With over 1 Mn RuPay cards, SBIC should be a key beneficiary of the proposal. The RBI in its recently released discussion paper has touched upon a possible cap/regulation of MDR on credit cards, which if implemented, could impact fee income/profitability. However, the brokerage awaits further clarity in the final guidelines from the regulator in this regard.
