PNB Housing Finance Fifth largest housing finance company

Aims to strengthen capital base to support business and assets growth, primarily in retail housing and non-housing loan segments

PNB Housing Finance is the fifth largest housing finance company (HFC) in India by the size of loan portfolio, which was incorporated on 11 November 1988, as a wholly-owned subsidiary by Punjab National Bank. In December 2009, the company offloaded 26% stake to the Destimoney Enterprises (DEL). DEL subscribed to additional equity shares, raising its stake to 49% of the equity share capital of the company.

The company became the fifth largest HFC in India by loan portfolio as of September 2015, with the second largest amount of deposits in an HFC in India as of March 2015. The company offers housing loans as well as non-housing loans such as loans against property (LAP), non-residential premises loans (NRPL), lease rental discounting (LRD), and corporate term loans (CTL).

The target customers for housing loans are salaried customers, whose main source of income is salary from their employment, and self-employed customers, whose main source of income is their profession or their business. The company also offers housing loans in the form of construction finance loans to real estate developers of residential housing.

The loan portfolio of the company has grown at a CAGR of 62% from Rs 3969.66 crore at end March 2012 to Rs 27177.27 crore at end March 2016. The loan portfolio has further accelerated to Rs 30900.64 crore at end June 2016. Despite the strong loan growth, the company has maintained the loan mix stable, exhibiting healthy growth across segments. The company plans to maintain the current retail focused loan mix even post IPO.

The housing loans constituted 70.31% of total loan portfolio and retail housing loans constituted 86.52% of total housing loan portfolio at end June 2016. The average retail housing loans ticket size stands at Rs 31.8 lakh, with a weighted average loan-to-value ratio (LTV ratio) of 66.10%.

The non-housing loans constituted 29.69% of total loan portfolio and retail non-housing loans accounted for 78.27% of total non-housing loan portfolio. The average loan size (at origination) of retail non-housing loans was Rs 56.8 lakh, with a weighted average LTV ratio of 46.49%. The company expects the ticket size to decline going forward, with the shift to tier II and III cities.

The company has a network of 47 branches across the northern, western and southern regions of India and 16 processing hubs with central support office (CSO) in New Delhi. Its distribution network included over 7,110 channel partners across different locations in India as of June 2016, including in-house sales team as well as external direct marketing associates (DMAs), deposit brokers and national aggregator relationships with reputed brands.

The total borrowings of the company stood at Rs 30045.95 crore, with the average cost of borrowings at 8.65%. The company has access to diverse sources of liquidity. The share of borrowings from banks and financial institutions, domestic debt markets, deposits and the NHB stood at 12.40%, 52.82%, 24.75% and 10.04% of outstanding borrowings at end June 2016. Outstanding deposits grew at a CAGR of 110.41% from Rs 363.07 crore as of March 2012 to Rs 7115.85 crore as of March 2016. Outstanding deposits have moved up to Rs 7435.9 crore at end June 2016.

Gross NPAs, as a percentage of the total loan portfolio, were 0.20% as of March 2015, which was the lowest among the leading HFCs in India. GNPA ratio has remained negligible at 0.27% as of June 2016.

The Capital to Risk (Weighted) Assets Ratio (CRAR) and Tier I Capital CRAR were 13.04% and 8.40% (against regulatory requirement of 12% and 6%) at end June 2016.

The Net Interest Margins (NIM) have been hovering in a narrow range of 2.9-3%. The NIMs stood at 2.98% in FY2016.

The RoE (return on equity) of the company has been healthy at 17.6% in FY2016. However, the RoA (return on assets) was moderate 1.35% owing to high leverage. The company has the higher leverage ratio of 15 times against the industry level of around 8 times.

The Offer and the Objects

The issue comprises fresh offer of Rs 3000 crore which at lower price band of Rs 750 per share works out to issue size of 4.00 crore shares and at higher price band of Rs 775 per share, works out to an issue size of 3.78 crore shares. Post-IPO, the promoter Punjab National Bank (PNB)’s stake will reduce to 39.1% from existing 51%.

The minimum bid lot is 19 equity shares and in multiples of 19 equity shares thereafter. The issue is to be made through a book building process and will open on 25 October 2016 and will close on 27 October 2016.

The issue includes a reservation of 2.5 lakh equity shares for subscription by eligible employees (not exceeding 5% of post-issue paid up equity share capital) at a discount of Rs 75 per share to the issue price.

The company intends to utilize the net proceeds towards augmenting capital base to meet future capital requirements and general corporate purpose. The company has to strengthen its capital base to support business and assets growth, primarily in housing and non-housing segment, and to ensure compliance with the NHB Directions. The proceeds are expected to be sufficient to satisfy company’s Tier-I capital requirements for the FY2017 and FY2018.

Strengths

The company has emerged as the fifth largest HFC in India by loan portfolio with the second largest amount of deposits in an HFC in India.

It is the fastest growing HFC among the leading HFCs in India

The company has a strong distribution network, with deep penetration of key Indian urban centers. As of June, 2016, the company has 47 branches supported by 16 processing hubs, three co-located zonal offices. Region-wise, 39.67% of the loan portfolio was originated from northern region, 30.40% from the western and 29.93% from the southern regions.

The company has scalable operating model, which is expected to enable expanding at lower incremental costs to drive profitability. A streamlined operational structure has resulted in improved turn-around-time (TAT) for processing a loan application until loan sanction. The cost-to-income ratio improved to 25.03% in Q1FY2017 from 25.7% in FY2016 and 31.4% in FY2015, despite opening of additional branches. While currently the cost-to-income ratio is relatively high and as a result return ratio is relatively lower (compared to other HFCs), scope for operational leverage is good and good future growth can yield relatively higher profitability and increase the return ratios faster.

The company has access to varied and cost-effective funding sources which included term loans from banks and financial institutions, NCDs, deposits, ECBs, commercial paper, refinancing from NHB and unsecured, subordinated debt. Lenders include 31 banks, 10 mutual funds, 20 insurance companies, 545 provident funds and 153 pension funds, among others. The company has been reducing the cost of borrowing to 8.65% in Q1FY2017 from 8.67% in FY2016, 9.26% in FY2015 and 9.3% in FY2014.

The asset quality of the company is robust with GNPA ratio at 0.27% and NNPA ratio at 0.19% at end June 2016.

Weaknesses and concerns

The business and operations of the company significantly depend on parent and promoter PNB. Following the issue, the company will cease to be a subsidiary of PNB and may not be able to enjoy the benefits received from being a subsidiary of PNB that enjoyed in the past. There can also be conflicts of interest between PNB and PNB Housing Finance.

The company uses the brand PNB of promoter and is exposed to the risk that PNB may prevent the company from using it in the event its shareholding falls below 30%.

Any significant adverse changes by the government, the RBI or the NHB in their policy regarding regulations of the housing industry and/or housing finance industry or any adverse change in the tax incentives that the government currently provides to HFCs and its customers may have an adverse effect on business, financial condition and results of operations.

The company is exposed to fluctuations in real estate prices and any negative events affecting the real estate sector.

Business and financial performance may be adversely affected by volatility in interest rates.

The non-housing loans constituted 29.69% of total loan portfolio. The risks in no-housing loans are generally higher than housing loans.

The company’s growth rates in the recent past have been very high and will be difficult to sustain. Moreover, high growth rates in the finance industry sometimes lead to pressure on asset quality in future.

RBL Bank IPO Prospectus

INDIA moves to GST: Exit for CST, VAT..Entry for CGST, SGST & IGST.

The Goods and Services tax is the biggest indirect tax reform since 1947 and it has potential to lead the economic integration of India. This Monsoon session of Parliament might succeed in passing the GST Bill.

We hoped the GST Bill will be functional by April 1 this year, but it’s still stuck in the Rajya Sabha where the ruling government has no majority.

If the GST Bill is passed, there will be only one centralised tax that and will replace plethora of indirect taxes currently imposed. The GST Bill was proposed to streamline the process of taxation and to make it easier and more effective.

Finance Minister Arun Jaitley met with state finance ministers in Kolkata, and said that ‘virtually all states’ except Tamil Nadu have backed the proposed GST Bill. He urged PM Modi to meet Tamil Nadu CM Jayalalithaa and convince her to extend support for the bill.

PM Modi met Jayalalithaa yesterday for the first time post her election win. Tamil Nadu CM is of the opinion that in its present form, the GST Bill will affect the autonomy of the TN government

GST the game changer: GST will be a game changing reform for Indian economy by developing a common Indian market and reducing the cascading effect of tax on the cost of goods and services. It will impact the Tax Structure, Tax Incidence, Tax Computation, Tax Payment, Compliance, Credit Utilization and Reporting leading to a complete overhaul of the current indirect tax system.

GST will have a far reaching impact on almost all the aspects of the business operations in the country, for instance, pricing of products and services; supply chain optimization; IT, accounting and tax compliance systems.

GST would bring in significant change in doing business in India. Advocacy for best practices, gearing up for changes in processes, training teams and developing IT systems for being GST compliant are the key areas to be assessed.

What is the function of this Bill?

As Finance Minister Arun Jaitley puts it, the GST bill will lead to the economic integration of India.

The main function of the GST is to transform India into a uniform market by breaking the current fiscal barrier between states. Thus the GST will facilitate a uniform tax levied on goods and services across the country.

Currently, the indirect tax system in India is complicated with overlapping taxes levied by the Centre and the State separately.

Framework of the GST will replace indirect taxes

The GST will have a ‘dual’ structure, which means it will have two components- the Central GST and the State #GST. They will both have separate powers to legislate and administer their respective taxes. Thus equally empowering both.

Taxes such as excise duty, service, central sales tax, VAT ( value added tax), entry tax or octroi will all be subsumed by the GST under a single umbrella.

With passing of the GST bill, we can expect a climate of improved tax compliance.

Thus, the GST will basically have only three kinds of taxes, Central, State and another called the integrated GST to tackle inter-state transactions.

When is the proposed GST set to start functioning and what are the hurdles?

The GST regime is intended to be functional from 1st April, 2016.

The first mention of the bill was in 2009 when the previous UPA government opened a discussion on it. They were successful in introducing the bill but failed to get it passed.

On December 17, 2014, the NDA government made slight changes to it and redefined it in the Lok Sabha. The bill got cleared on May 6 this year.

However the current challenge facing the bill is that it needs two-third majority of both houses and 50 percent of the state assemblies will have to ratify it.

The bill is now stuck in the Rajya Sabha, because the current government does not hold a majority here.

The role of the opposition

The Congress demands for reforms in key areas of the GST has been stalling the process of passing the bill.

Three main concerns of the Congress over the bill are:

-one per cent additional tax as goods move across states.
-the constitutional cap of 18 per cent and an independent dispute redressal mechanism.
-the party has maintained that the government was ignoring the concerns raised by the party on the legislation.

The impact and relevance of the GST bill

According to Finance Minister Arun Jaitlety the GST will be instrumental in helping the GDP of India to grow by 2 percent.

The GST also offers a solution to the multinationals as it breaks down the indirect tax structure into one single tax payable by the companies.

Although the states have feared loss of fiscal powers, the Constitutional amendment bill has promised to solve this by giving compensation packages for three years for any kind of revenue loss.

The bill has proposed to have GST council wherein all union and state minister in charge of finance will be on a equal footing. It will also have a Dispute Settlement authority to mitigate the tensions between the centre and state smoothly.

One main contention for the state in the GST is the inclusion of petroleum products. The current consensus on this is that the states will continue to levy sales tax/VAT on these with the exception of imports and inter-state trade.

Salient Features of proposed INDIAN GST System:

  • The power to make laws in respect of supplies in the course of inter-State trade or commerce will be vested only in the Union government. States will have the right to levy GST on intra-State transactions including on services.
  • Centre will levy IGST on inter-State supply of goods and services. Import of goods will be subject to basic customs duty and IGST.
  • GST defined as any tax on supply of goods and services other than on alcohol for human consumption.
  • Central taxes like, Central Excise duty, Additional Excise duty, Service tax, Additional Custom duty and Special Additional duty and State level taxes like, VAT or sales tax, Central Sales tax, Entertainment tax, Entry tax, Purchase tax, Luxury tax and Octroi will subsume in GST.
  • Petroleum and petroleum products i.e. crude, high speed diesel, motor spirit, aviation turbine fuel and natural gas   shall be subject to the GST on a date to be notified by the GST Council.
  • 1% origin based additional tax to be levied on inter-State supply of goods will be non-creditable in GST chain. The revenue from this tax is to be assigned to the Origin State. This tax is proposed to be levied for initial two years or such period as recommended by the GST Council.
  • Provision for removing imposition of entry tax / Octroi across India.
  • Entertainment tax, imposed by States on movie, theatre, etc will be subsumed in GST, but taxes on entertainment at panchayat, municipality or district level to continue.
  • GST may be levied on the sale of newspapers and advertisements and this would give the government’s access to substantial incremental revenues.
  • Stamp duties, typically imposed on legal agreements by the state, will continue to be levied by the States.
  • Administration of GST will be the responsibility of the GST Council, which will be the apex policy making body for GST. Members of GST Council comprised of the Central and State ministers in charge of the finance portfolio.

Understanding of GST

  • GST is a value added tax, levied at all points in the supply chain with credit allowed for any tax paid on inputs acquired for use in making the supply. It would apply to both goods and services in a comprehensive manner with exemptions restricted to a minimum.
  • In keeping with the federal structure of India, it is proposed that GST be levied concurrently by the Centre (CGST) and the States (SGST). It is expected that the base and other essential design features would be common between CGST and SGST, across SGSTs for the individual States. Both CGST and SGST would be levied on the basis of the destination principle. Thus, exports would be zero-rated, and imports would attract the tax in the same manner as domestic goods and services. Inter-State supplies within India would attract an Integrated GST (aggregate of CGST and the SGST of the destination State).
  • In addition to the IGST, in respect of supply of goods, an additional tax of up to 1% has been proposed to be levied by the Centre. The revenue from this tax is to be assigned to the origin states. This tax is proposed to be levied for initial two years or such longer period as recommended by the GST Council.

Benefits of GST

GST has been envisaged as a more efficient tax system, neutral in its application and distributionally attractive. The advantages of GST are:

  • Wider tax base, necessary for lowering the tax rates and eliminating classification disputes
  • Elimination of multiplicity of taxes and their cascading effects
  • Rationalization of tax structure and simplification of compliance procedures
  • Harmonization of center and State tax administrations, which would reduce duplication and compliance costs
  • Automation of compliance procedures to reduce errors and increase efficiency

Destination principle

The GST structure would follow the destination principle. Accordingly, imports would be subject to GST, while exports would be zero-rated. In the case of inter-State transactions within India, the State tax would apply in the State of destination as opposed to that of origin.

Taxes to be subsumed

GST would replace most indirect taxes currently in place such as:

Central Taxes State Taxes
