Equity Bank FY17 Results via Kestrel Capital
NIMs stood at 8.5%, higher than our estimates of 8.2%.
Non interest income increased by 22.0% y/y to KES 27.6bn, marginally below our estimate of 27.9bn.
Staff costs were higher than expected at KES 11.5bn, down 1% y/y. Notably, other operating expenses were also slightly higher than expected, up 17% y/y to KES 16.3bn.
NPLs declined from 7.4% in 3Q17 to 6.3% in 4Q17 notable improvement especially if you look at the trend in NPLs going up even into Feb 2018.
As at the last price of KES 53.50, Equity Bank trades at a P/E of 12.2 and a P/B of 2.2. Notably, the ROE currently stands at 17.8%.
We believe Equity Bank is trading at fair valuations even assuming a reversal of interest rate caps.

We believe that the future of banking is predictive capability and this is where we have set our eyes as a Group Dr. Mwangi EquityFYResults2017 @KeEquityBank

Equitel transaction volumes grew by 11% to Ksh 251.6mn from 227.4mn YoY Dr. Mwangi EquityFYResults2017
Equitel transaction value grew by 32% to Kshs 480.3bn up from Ksh 364.4bn in 2016 Dr. Mwangi EquityFYResults2017
Equity bank Uganda PBT grew by 88%, Rwanda by 76%, DRC by 55%, South Sudan by 107%, Finserve by 29% and EIB by 48%. EquityFYResults2017
Regional and business diversification resulted in a double digit growth across the subsidiaries with an increased contribution of PBT of 14% from 8% YoY EquityFYResults2017
Subsidiary contribution to PAT doubled to 14% from 7% EquityFYResults2017
NPLs at 6.3% vs Industry average of 10.6%. EquityFYResults2017

@RichTvAfrica 14% Growth in PAT (Group) EquityFYResults2017

Equity added one million customers in 2017. Total customers at 12.1 million EquityFYResults2017 @BharteshShah

96% of all transactions are outside the branch. EquityFYResults2017 @BharteshShah


The Pivot to GOK securities tapered the NPLs ratio by 430 basis points.
Subsidiary contribution is set to accelerate further, in my opinion.
They will probably move very quick once the caps are modified to liquefy what remains a Key Franchise of the bank.
These are in my view strong results which promise much,
2018 is promising and hence we are very optimistic this year Dr Mwangi EquityFYResults2017

Mwangi said that all the firms subsidiaries had broken even and together contributed 15 percent to the pretax profit.

The bank said its mobile banking business had also grown during the first half of the year, with 3.04 million customers as at the end of June 2014, from 2.78 million customers at the end of 2013.
