MoneyWorks4me Opinion

How is the company quality?

Average:

Suryoday SFB is a regional microfinance company with 70% loans lent out as microfinance i.e. unsecured small ticket size loans to poor people.

A large population is still unbanked and in search of capital. This is where microfinance and small finance banks play a crucial role in organized lending of small-ticket loans.

Microfinance is growing fast as the market is currently under-penetrated. Players with a large scale are able to grow even faster as they have access to capital and better risk management versus smaller ones. Within that Small Finance Bank can accept deposits as well as CASA. This not only secures their funding but also provides low-cost financing for lending purposes.

Suryoday SFB is an emerging small finance bank with a little track record as a bank with evident low CASA and higher cost of borrowings. But as the bank grows with an increase in loans geographically/product-wise and CASA, it will have improving profitability and better risk management.

peer comparison

Currently, Suryoday SFB has a high NPA of ~9% (Net NPA 5.4%) and CASA of just 13% which may jeopardize its financing plans to pursue higher growth. We believe Bandhan Bank offers a much better risk-reward versus Suryoday SFB as it is yet to prove its business model.

We recommend AVOID on Suryoday SFB as a long-term holding as well as listing gains.

Note: We do not recommend buy just because the IPO market is hot. We do not earn any commission or fee for promoting IPOs so expect an honest review from us on the business model and valuation.
