Views of Mr. Jaikishan J Parmar (Research Analyst, Angel Broking):
"At a time when there were question marks over the extent of NPAs in the books of private banks, Yes Bank reported 22% growth in net profits to Rs.1077 crore for the third quarter of the current fiscal. The net interest income (NII) was also up by 27% for the quarter at Rs.1888 crore. So how exactly did the business of Yes Bank grow during the quarter.
Advances overall grew by 46.5% but within the ambit of advances, retail advances grew by 101%, indicating a clear shift in the bank's portfolio towards retail assets. The deposits grew by 29.5% during the quarter but the net interest margin (NIM) at 3.50% was 20 basis points lower than the NIM in the corresponding quarter last year.
In percentage terms the gross NPAs improved from 1.82% to 1.72% this quarter even as the net NPAs improved from 1.04% to 0.93%. However, in absolute terms both gross NPAs and net NPAs were higher. During the quarter, Yes Bank had gross slippages of Rs.495 crore. This included a slippage of Rs.254 crore on accounts that were previous classified as SDR, 5:24 and NCLT. Yes Bank had exposure to 9 NCLT accounts with a total rupee exposure of Rs.1342 crore."
