IndoStar Capital Finance Limited is a leading NBFC with presence in corporate lending, SME lending, vehicle financing and housing financing segments. According to CRISIL, the loan book of NBFCs is expected to post 15% CAGR growth between FY18 and FY19. NBFCs have gained market share at the expense of banks owing to focused lending, widening reach, and resource-raising ability. With slowing corporate demand for loans, banks have shifted their focus to retail assets, thereby increasing competition for NBFCs. However, NBFCs would continue to perform well in the coming years due to key growth drivers like urbanization, easy credit availability, policy initiatives like RERA and affordable housing, increasing penetration in tier 1 and tier 2 cities, etc.

IndoStar has delivered healthy CAGR of 22% and 23.4% on Revenue and Net profit front respectively over FY14-17. With stable asset quality, strong risk management system, experienced management and strong presence across different financing verticals, the company is well placed to remain one of the preferred NBFCs. Going forward, it aims to expand into new geographies, offer new products and maintain its asset quality. At the upper price band of Rs 572, the stock is available at post issue P/BV of ~1.8x.
