VPB – Loan growth slowdown dents earnings – Update

Company Note 21/08/2018    127

Share

  • 1H18 pretax profit reached VND4,375bn, fulfilling only 40.5% of the bank’s FY18 target, and also below our expectations at 41.3% of our full-year forecast.
  • The sluggish performance at FE Credit was due to loan growth slowdown as the bank restructured its unsecured lending business following the central bank’s inspection.
  • The high profit growth of the parent bank compensated for lower growth of FE Credit.
  • We revise down our TP to VND32,500 to account for lower loan growth for FY18-20F.
  • Current valuation is attractive but asset quality deterioration is a medium-term risk.
