"We expect Bajaj Finance to deliver flat YoY NII growth on the back of 6 bps YoY NIM compression to 10.25 percent. 35 bps QoQ NIM expansion reflects falling funding cost, marginally higher yield in consumer business and partial run-down of excess liquidity," said Kotak Institutional Equities which expects 19.3 percent YoY fall in profit and 58 percent increase in provisions.
In Q2 of the current fiscal, Bajaj Finance posted a 35.94 per cent year-on-year (YoY) drop in net profit at Rs 964.88 crore against profit of Rs 1,506.29 crore in the corresponding quarter last year. Net interest income of the NBFC increased 4 per cent YoY to Rs 4,165 crore.
