PNB Housing Fin - Fast Growing HFC

(Amitayu) #247

Basically, for any finance companies, Asset quality is much depended on Management pedigree /execution skills. It was assumed that affordable Housing loan is safer than traditional Big Ticket Housing Loan/LAP, but latest result of few NBFCs like MOSL Housing Finance subsidiary (Aspire)busted the Myth. We saw it’s low ticket housing subsidy clocked 6.5% GNPA which is much worse than LAP loan. Actually, all depend on the parameters which company are checking before providing a loan, If any loan provided without analyzing cash flow then it bound to be default irrespective of the type of Loans.

That is published value at the higher end. But the actual number is 48%. Refer to the recent qtr presentation.

Ok. Thanks. I was more referring to policy of the bank which will protect the future risk but good that they are not using top end of the LTV.

For Aspire, the MO management has acknowledged that they did not run a tight ship and still learning the ropes particularly in handling collection.

@amitayu My comment was in general to canfin and pnbhfl where before comparing book value numbers etc, it is more important to see distribution of lending.
@sgjaclyn Depending on mgmt words is proportional to amount of trust one has in management based on his own experience of tracking Personally, I have never tracked this company as a stock,so, no comments here
@pranav_pratap I have been a customer of this company from past 3 years. During 2013-15 when real estate was going through bad times, lot of developers tied up with real estate financing companies and launched double your money kind of schemes. The arrangement was it is buyer who gets 100% loan amount in advance, takes all the credit risk, passes it to builder. Builder assures that equity money given by buyer will double in 3-4 years and after 3-4 years it is up to buyer whether he wants to retain the flat or take double money (no one suffers, only buyer suffers if things go wrong. Developers get lot of money at the credit risk of buyer else he would have got same loan at 18-20%, financier gets great way to show stupendous growth). Flow 3 years down the line, some of the projects are not closed to delivery,so, buyers fighting with builder and financier. Those who want to retain home may want to shift from NBFC to SBI (buyer had to get loan from a specific NBFC as a part of arrangement). Those who want to get double money are fighting with developers in many cases as it was pipe dream. I am not sure how much exposure of overall lending portfolio each of such NBFCs participating in these schemes have/had and hence can not comment on overall lending quality. However, PNBHFL was involved in some of projects in Bangalore Mantri webcity phase 2 and 3 under similar scheme

@pranav_pratap @amitayu Personally, as a customer, my experience with PNBHFL in terms of service has been good (based on 2-3 interactions), however, i know people who are stuck in such schemes where with Indian mindset of buying real estate and lure to double income, people invested in multiple project and now when real estate prices did not double, developer did not meet commitments, tussle between builder, developer and customer is going on. I am not sure about scale of problem, hence, can not comment if this will have very small or large impact on the parties involved in future but this could be worth digging for someone with strong exposure.

It depends on customer whether he is salaried /Self Employed , Branch network etc. Yield for Self Employed Customer is more and moreover, it has reach on Tier2-Tier 3 Cities where competition is less.


Thanks for the detailed description. This looks like a typical case of greed getting better of the investors; this time in real estate.

It seems market is pushing down PNBHousing, maybe investors are concerned with PNB bank scam and they think it is going to impact PNBHousing also.

I believe it has nothing to do with PNBHousing Finance, inviting your views for the same.

‘Bap Jaisa Beta’ Is DNA effect going to play in people’s mind?
In competitive HFC market, if a company (newly listed) grows AUM too fast compare to old proven guys (Gruh), people see with caution!
In Finance, everything finally ends with how best underwriting HFC/Banks is doing for loan. Is company focusing super fast AUM growth relaxing on underwriting norms or they are OK with reasonable AUM growth without compromising underwriting policy. First could rise fast and fall fast but later one can steadily grow upward in market.

I have observed that you have been trying to spread rumors and speculation without any substance to back it up. Previously also you had speculated that Basant Maheshwari had sold of all his investments in PNB housing without being able to back it up. Now you have come again to start spreading rumours and escape once confronted and asked to back with facts. ‘Bap jaisa Beta’ is an absolute invalid statement in this case as PNB management is in no way associated with working of PNB housing.

LOL, Since when Non-executive Directors are part of Operation of a company or have Decision-making power on a company operation? In Investment, it is much necessary to know about the financial related terms. Basic understanding of those terms helps a lot.

Few points and your thoughts please.
RBI ask PNB to pay entire 11,300 cr. From where this money will come from?
PNB approximately has 33% shareholding in PNB housing. i.e. valued at 6900 cr.
Will PNB be forced to sell its holding in PNB housing? If yes, as few members said, this should be good in the long term.
However, what happens to the PNB brand? I read somewhere that PNB housing can only use “PNB” brand as long as PNB holding is maintain above 30%.
What happens if the holding falls below 30%?
Also, with PNB fraud headline all around - What happens to the trust of the depositor?
Just think about this. If someone had fixed deposit in PNB, then won’t these people be moving their FD’s to other banks? What happens then?
Common people won’t be able to distinguish between PNB and PNB housing. Post this damage of PNB brand - Would this impact PNB housing finance buiseness? Would people prefer other bank loans instead? What will happen to PNB housing deposits? Will people liquidate that too in panic.

Your thoughts please.

Just a reminder for people equating Housing finance with everything else and also speculating arbitrarily:

If there was a huge NPA problem to happen in Housing finance it should have led to trouble first in housing loans of PSU/Private Banks and HDFC by now, as they have done far more business in housing than PNB Housing and they seem to have survived with Unitech and all that in the housing area. Because there are no 45000 crore loans to be given in housing.

As long as numbers speak what they do , PNB Housing remains a good long term bet for me, specially with the new RBI rules : . Doodh ka doodh and Paani ka paani will happen for all of the loan business in the next 2 years anyway.

Parent’s capital may be wiped off and as majority shareholder Govt may step in to infuse capital. That is you and me paying indirectly for the mistake because so far we have voted for a socialist regime which is root cause of this problem of bank nationalisation.

But there will be pressure to get the money and like Canara bank the decision makers can decide to sell off the stake. Let PNB come out with how they are going to handle the hole in the balance sheet. Being a govt. run bank the depositors would not be concerned much and majority of them may not be aware of its implications.

As for the PNB HSG borrowers it should not matter because the lender should be more concerned than the borrower. As for public depositers with PNB Hsg, if they thought it is majority govt owned, the perception would remain. For those who are aware of the difference, they may deside to withdraw if their concern bothers them. The company may face short term redemption pressure and that should be part of their business plan. But their future borrowings may be priced higher because of investor conversation.
