Subdued loan growth and flat net interest margin (NIM) could dull the September quarter earnings of Axis Bank, which is slated to report its September quarter earnings for the financial year 2019-20 (Q2FY20) on Monday, October 21.
Analysts, however, seem to be divided on the growth in net profit due to ambiguity over whether the bank would provide a one-time mark-down in its deferred tax asset (DTA) or would the mark-down be spread evenly over the financial year.
Private lender Axis Bank on Thursday fixed the floor price for its qualified institutional placement (QIP) issue at at Rs 661.50 per equity share. The private lender has said that the board will meet again on September 25 to approve QIP issue to investors.
