The current market price is Rs 930 apiece with 52-week high at Rs 958 and 52-week low at Rs 642 apiece, respectively. The bank has given multibagger returns to investors with 5-years return at 205%, 3-years return at 76%, and 1-year return at 30%.
2. Unveiled Go-To-Market Strategy
The bank has unveiled its go to-market strategy, taking the entire bank to the customer instead of specific products with overarching 3 'T' anchors being Trust (Reputation is paramount and, thus, sell products that are fair to the customer), Team (One Bank One Team - 9 State/104 Zonal/24 City heads to offer all products/services with core profitability as KRA instead of growth), and Technology (Digital first).
As a strategy, the bank has merged rural banking centers with retail centers, fully aligned retail assets distribution with liabilities, and converged MSME/Private Banking teams with retail and credit business centers, co-located in Business center.
3. Focus on Retail, SME, Corporate 360 Degree Approach To Drive Profitable, Sustainable Growth
Retail (secured/unsecured) and SME/Business Banking will remain the key growth drivers for the bank, which is riding on its targeted micro-market strategy.
The bank is now adopting a corporate 3600 approach, whereby the Corporate RM's role has been changed to the role of a co-anchor, curator, connector, and facilitator to drive not only the lending relationship but also capture the corporate ecosystem (entire supply chain, employees, and promoters) to offer payments, liability, treasury/forex/derivative, and TPD products/services, thereby focusing on engrained customer engagement and enhance customer-level RoE.
According to Emkay Global, "ICICI Bank remains our top fundamental pick, given its superior financial performance (>20% growth with >17% RoE) beyond expectations, top-management stability, and strong capital/provision buffers. We retain BUY with a revised TP of Rs1,225 (Rs1,170 earlier), rolling forward the standalone bank at 2.8x Dec-24E and subsidiaries at Rs225."
