In the aftermath of the Infrastructure Leasing & Financial Services (IL & FS) crisis in September 2018, the financial sector had been heavily constrained from a liquidity standpoint.

Furthermore, rising defaults in the power and infrastructure sectors in the second half of 2019 had taken a toll on the stressed book of the bank. Given the low capital buffer in this macro-environment, the bank was adversely impacted on the account of elevated slippages in corporate book, especially in power and infrastructure sectors.

In addition, while the statutory liquidity ratio (SLR) as on March 31, 2020 satisfied the regulatory requirement, the bank breached the regulatory minimum SLR during the fiscal year ended March 31, 2020. The bank also breached our liquidity coverage ratio (LCR) during the fiscal year 2020. This is largely due to the deposit outflow in early October 2019 on account of a combination of events such as the invocation of promoter’s pledged shares and IT glitches at the bank.

The above factors led to a rapid deterioration in the financial position of the bank. Looking at the uncertainty surrounding a credible plan for infusion of capital, RBI took immediate action in the interests of the depositors and the public on March 5, 2020, and soon after that, the bank was placed under moratorium.

The table below clearly shows the deteriorating financial condition of the bank. The total assets of the bank have decreased from Rs 3,80,859.61 crore as of March 31, 2019, to Rs 2,57,832.164 crore as of March 31, 2020, a decline of 32.30 per cent.

Total deposits have decreased from Rs 2,27,557.903 crore as on March 31, 2019, to Rs 1,05,311.168 crore as of March 31, 2020, a decrease of 53.76 per cent. The decrease in deposits was primarily triggered by a moratorium on another co-operative bank, together with a fall in stock price due to the sell-down by promoters of the bank. Accordingly, depositors’ confidence was affected, which resulted in an increase in deposit withdrawal.

Bank’s net profit decreased from Rs 1,709.66 crore as of March 2019 to a loss of Rs 16,432.58 crore as of March 31, 2020 due to an increase in NPA from Rs 7,882.559 crore as of March 31, 2019 to Rs 32,877.588 crore as of March 31, 2020.

In addition, the number of branches has increased from 1,120 as of March 31, 2019 to 1,135 as of March 31, 2020.

Valuation and recommendation

The offer is being made at almost 40 per cent discount to the current share price of the bank. Despite such a discount, the offer is available at more than 0.8 times the post-issue price to book value. It will become even more if we adjust book value for non-performing assets (NPAs). There are many banks that are available at a better valuation to choose from. Therefore, you can skip this issue.
