Investment Rationale
The management expects to maintain yields at ~21% in the near future. It also expects yields on Gold loans to improve further with demand for the small ticket size loan from the bottom of the pyramid customers going up. Its balance sheet liquidity remains comfortable with no funding challenges and only 2.7 times leverage. The NIMs on incremental MFI business has gone up to 15% post the new RBI guideline on removal on the cap on spreads which should augur well for overall better-blended yield realization. With MGFL trading below its 5-Yr average of ~1.1x P/BV, the brokerage believes the underperformance in the past few quarters is priced-in. Against this backdrop, it should see an upside from here on with the company’s overall performance improving in the coming quarters.
