SÃO PAULO, May 13, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — BTG Pactual (BPAC11) once again reported record revenues in the first quarter of 2024, totaling R$ 5.9 billion, a 22.7% increase y-o-y. Adjusted net income also reached all-time-high of  R$ 2.9 billion, a 27.7% increase when compared to 1Q23. Adjusted return on equity (ROAE) reached 22.8% in the first quarter.

 “We have reported record revenues and net income in this first quarter, with robust net inflows despite a challenging macroeconomic environment, both domestically and internationally. The sustained growth of our client franchises and the diversification of our business model underscore our commitment to excellence in servicing  our clients, investors and partners ,” says Roberto Sallouti, CEO of BTG Pactual.

In the first quarter, BTG Pactual registered R$ 64 billion in Net New Money (NNM), with R$ 43.6 billion in Wealth Management and R$ 20,2 billion in Asset Management, including R$15.9 billion from the acquisition of Órama Investimentos, totaling R$ 1.64 trillion in assets (AuM/WuM) under management and administration.

Investment Banking maintained its leadership in key industry rankings and presented higher revenues in the first quarter, totaling R$ 654 million. The result is 41% higher than 4Q23 and 151% higher year-on-year, positively driven by record revenues in M&A and higher volumes in the debt market (DCM).

The credit portfolio totaled R$ 181.6 billion in the quarter, a 26.7% increase compared to the first quarter of 2023, with increased market share both in large corporations and small and medium-sized enterprises, representing R$ 22.1 billion of the total portfolio.

Sales & Trading reported revenues of R$ 1.37 billion in the first three months of the year, with a strong contribution from client franchises. In a macroeconomic environment of increased uncertainty, both in the local and international markets, the bank maintained efficient risk allocation, with VaR of 0.36%, still below historical averages. From this quarter onwards, the Principal Investments area will be reported within Sales & Trading, due to the similar nature of the business and reduced relevance to total revenues. For reference, the Principal Investments line in 1Q24 had a contribution of R$ 13 million.

Asset Management reported another quarter of record revenues, with a 29.8% increase year-on-year and a 13% increase compared to 4Q23, totaling R$ 574 million.

The Basel ratio closed the quarter at 16.4%, impacted by the repurchase of subordinated level 2 bonds in the amount of US$ 600 million. The liquidity coverage ratio (LCR) was 166.5%.

Executive Share Sales

On May 16, PB Fintech announced that its Chairman and CEO, Yashish Dahiya, alongside Vice Chairman and Whole-time Director, Alok Bansal, intended to sell partial stakes in the company. Dahiya plans to sell up to 5.4 million equity shares, while Bansal aims to divest up to 2.97 million equity shares. Proceeds from the sale will be allocated primarily towards taxes on current and future ESOP exercises.

Following the sale, Dahiya will retain a 4.83% stake, while Bansal will hold a 1.63% stake in PB Fintech on a fully diluted basis. The company clarified that no further share sales are planned by the duo for at least one year.

Company Profile and Financial Performance

PB Fintech is actively involved in providing integrated online marketing and IT consulting services, primarily for the financial services industry, including insurance. The company operates Policybazaar, India’s largest digital insurance marketplace, and Paisabazaar, which offers lending-related services.

In Q4FY24, PB Fintech reported a net profit of Rs 60.19 crore, marking a significant improvement from the Rs 9.34 crore loss in the corresponding period of the previous year.

Analyst Perspectives

Analysts at Nuvama Institutional Equities raised their FY25/26 Ebitda estimates significantly to accommodate higher growth and improved profitability. However, they maintained a ‘Reduce’ rating on the stock due to its rich valuation, revising their target price to Rs 1,160.

Keynote Capital downgraded PB Fintech’s stock to ‘Reduce’ from ‘Buy’, citing that most of the positives appear to be priced in. Despite acknowledging the company’s positive momentum and profitability, the brokerage believes that current market expectations may be overly optimistic.

PB Fintech continues to navigate its growth trajectory amidst strategic initiatives and evolving market dynamics, as reflected by varying analyst viewpoints.
