RBL's Net interest income stood at Rs. 37,876 mn in FY 21, while it is expected to grow to Rs. 40,746 mn in FY 22. PAT stood at Rs. 5,078 mn in FY 21, while it is expected to grow at Rs. 1,821 mn in FY 22. The firm said, "The issues peaked out in 2QFY22 and should improve from here on. The bank has maintained that it expects net NPAs to be <2% by 4QFY22. 4QFY22 is likely to be a normalized quarter. The bank also does not expect any material divergence in terms of asset quality classification. 2HFY22 credit cost will be 50-60% of 1HFY22." Additionally, the bank is now carrying Rs. 130-150 bn of surplus liquidity.

According to Nirmal Bang, "In case of RBL, the management has assured that 2QFY22 was likely the peak of NPAs and 2HFY22 credit cost is expected to be lower than 1HFY22. Although there is no change in the bank's financial and business outlook, the answers with respect to reasons for Mr. Vishwavir Ahuja's immediate leave and appointment of the RBI director were answered unsatisfactorily. The fresh instability at the top management level could be of concern in the near term and would be negative for the stock price."
