June quarter income which had grown 37% in the previous year to September 11 (INR 15.4 B) has grown fiurther to INR17.7 B in June 2012, up sequentially by slightly less than 5%. on a June to June comparison, growth has been 23% Y/Y from INR 14.2 B . NII is still less than INR3.8B and after taxes, Net profit is INR 2.27 B for an annualised EPS of over 18.
On ttm basis EPS is likely near 20 than 18 and with NIMs safe at these levels the company could well be looking at targets of 400 in institutional advisories.
