FY14 results in line. Krung Thai Bank (KTB) reported net profit of
THB8.02bn (-14% QoQ) for 4Q14 and THB33.2bn (-4% YoY) for FY14,
which is within market and our expectations.
4Q14 pre-tax profit fell 17%. This was mainly on: i) a 31% QoQ jump in
impairment charges to THB3.69bn that pushed annualised credit cost to
80bps (3Q14: 63bps), and ii) a 13% QoQ increase in opex that lifted
cost-to-income ratio to 46.9% (3Q14: 42%). Operating income grew a
modest 1% QoQ as a 5% QoQ rise in non-interest income (net fee
income +7% QoQ) was moderated by flattish net interest income of
THB17.47bn – loans grew 5% QoQ but net interest margin (NIM)
dropped 12bps QoQ on a 13% QoQ surge in deposits.
Sharp drop in 4Q14 non-performing loans (NPLs). Gross NPLs,
which rose 19.5% YTD to THB67.75bn in Sep 2014, fell 17% QoQ to
THB56.18bn in Dec 2014. KTB ended 2014 with a small 1% uptick in
NPLs. We believe the decline in 4Q14 NPLs was a result of write-offs (as
reflected in a spike in 4Q14 provisions) and recoveries. Gross NPL ratio
fell to 2.96% (Sep 2014: 3.76%). Loan loss reserves improved to 127%.
FY15-16F earnings cut by 5-6%. This is because we lowered
assumptions on loan growth, NIM and non-interest income. We see
rising risks of further delays in roll-out of infrastructure projects while
recovery in export sector appears elusive. This ought to exert pressure
on KTB’s small and medium enterprise (SME) and retail customers.
Downgrade to NEUTRAL (from BUY) with GGM-based TP lowered to
THB24.40 (from THB26.00). This implies FY15F P/BV of 1.35x. With
stock having risen 38% last year, we believe price performance will be
vulnerable to potential earnings disappointments.

Growth underpinned by 11% YoY
increase in loans but moderated by NIM
slippages of 7bps.
NIM fell 7bps YoY mainly due to rise in
funding cost on the back of a 14% QoQ
surge in deposits in 4Q14.

(17)
Comments – FY14 vs FY13
(7)
Lower due to the 79% YoY drop in
dividend income to THB425m following
maturity of its investment in Vayupaksa
Fund 1 at end-2013 and 30% YoY
decline in investment gains to THB4bn.
Up mainly on higher staff cost (+6% YoY)
and other expenses (+29% YoY), which
comprised largely marketing and
promotion expenses.
Bumped up by an increase in its monthly
provision to THB700m from THB500m in
2Q14 and THB3bn in additional
impairment allowances.
Annualised credit cost is in line with
management’s guidance.

Revisions to earnings forecasts
Given slower-than-expected progress in government-led infrastructure projects and
slow recovery in the export sector, we downgrade our net profit estimates by 5-6% for
FY15-16 after: i) lowering our loan growth assumptions to 6%/8.5% for FY15-16 from
12%/11% respectively, ii) factoring NIM compression from higher deposit costs, and
iii) lower non-interest income growth.
We now expect earnings to grow by 10% (instead of 17%) in FY15 and 12% (instead
of 13%) in FY16. We have also introduced FY17 earnings estimates.

Krung Thai Bank (KTB TB)
22 January 2015
Valuation
The downward revision in earnings led to a lower TP of THB24.40 (from THB26.00)
as ROE assumption used in the GGM was lowered to 15.4% from 15.8% while
weighted average cost of capital was a higher 12.8% (from 12.6%). Long-term growth
assumption was maintained at 5.5%.
Our revised TP implies a FY15F P/BV of 1.35x (historical mean: 1.2x) and a FY15F
P/E of 9.4x (historical mean: 8.8x).
Risks
Downside risks that could impede the stock from reaching our TP are: i) potential
delays in the execution of approved infrastructure projects, ii) a sharper-thanexpected decline in NIM should the bank’s strategy to rebalance its loans mix prove
unsuccessful, and iii) sharper-than-expected deterioration in asset quality, which
would result in higher credit cost.

to do national
service during
challenging
times

result in greater

opportunities
 Loan loss reserve ratio of 127% (Dec 2013) is lower
than the 140% of other large Thai banks
 Tier-1 capital ratio of 10.6% at end-Dec 2014 is
