Beat on interest income; F&O share continues to rise

Brokerage gross activity declined slightly on a sequential basis, driven by a 23% drop QoQ in cash brokerage revenue to INR 659 million. This was partially offset by 3% QoQ growth in the F&O segment at INR3.8b. The share of the F&O segment in gross brokerage revenue increased further to 81% in 1QFY23 from 78% in 4QFY22.

Muted revenue performance
Total operating expenses increased by 16% QoQ and 53% YoY to INR 2.7 billion (online). Weak revenue performance and an increase in expenses drove the P/I ratio up to 51.6% from 45.1% year-over-year in 4QFY22. Payroll costs jumped 71% YoY and 36% QoQ to INR1b (8% ahead of our estimate). The large increase can be attributed to: 1) the hiring of 20 people to the digital team at 1QFY23, bringing its digital talent pool to 630; 2) ESOP expenses; and 3) annual increase and variable compensation. Employee cost, as a percentage of operating revenue, climbed 20% from 15% in 4QFY22.

It has demonstrated a decent performance in 1QFY23, even in difficult market conditions. invest in technology and strengthen its position. Given the macroeconomic environment, most discounts ensure healthy profitability. The same can be increased as the environment is relatively favorable.

We maintain our buy rating on the stock with a revised TP of INR 1,750 (based on 18x FY24e EPS).”
