  • S&P Global Ratings has revised the outlook on Axis Bank to positive from stable. However, S&P has affirmed its 'BB+' long-term and 'B' short-term issuer credit ratings on the bank. Also, the rating agency affirmed the 'BB+' long-term issue rating on the bank's outstanding debt.
  • In its statement, S&P said that the outlook revision reflects our view of a one-in-three chance that Axis Bank's asset quality could continue to improve such that the bank's credit costs and level of weak loans are commensurate with those of higher-rated Indian and international peers.
  • As per S&P, Axis Bank's loan growth, asset quality, and profitability should improve as economic activity gains pace in India over the next two years. Under our base-case scenario, we forecast the bank's weak loans, defined as nonperforming loans (NPLs) and restructured loans, will decline to 3.3%-3.5% over the next 12 months from about 3.8% of total loans as of Dec 31, 2021, supported by stabilizing credit conditions. Credit costs will likely moderate to 1.3%-1.5%, lower than 2.3% in fiscal 2021 (year ended March 31, 2021), given the bank has accelerated provisioning on weak loans in recent quarters. Read more
