ICICI Prudential Life Q2 Results Review


BQ Prime’s special research section collates quality and in-depth equity and economy research reports from across India’s top brokerages, asset managers and research agencies. These reports offer BQ Prime’s subscribers an opportunity to expand their understanding of companies, sectors and the economy. 

ICICI Prudential Life Insurance Company Ltd. posted a flattish new business annual premium equivalent (1% YoY growth) in Q2 FY23 as strong growth in group protection and non-linked savings was offset by weak performance in unit linked insurance plans and group savings.

However, APE grew 10% YoY in H1 FY23 to Rs 35 billion. Value of new business grew 21% YoY to Rs 6.2 billion (8% beat), primarily driven by a 502 basis points YoY expansion in VNB margin to 31.1% in Q2 FY23.

For H1 FY23, VNB rose 25% YoY to Rs 10.9 billion; VNB margin also expanded 372 bps to 31.0%.

We marginally cut our APE estimates for FY23/24 but estimate ICICI Prudential Life to deliver 23% compound annual growth rate in VNB over FY22-24.

This will be driven by a combination of premium growth and slight improvement in margins, thereby enabling operating return on enterprise value at ~17% in FY24E.
