Motilal Oswal has given a buy rating to MAS Financial Services with a target price of Rs 632.

MAS Financial reported Q4 FY20 PAT at Rs 357 million (69 per cent beat). Pre-provision operating profit or PPoP was flat year on year and missed brokerage estimates by 8 per cent. Lower - than - expected Covid-19 provisions at Rs 203 million, against brokerage estimate of Rs 300 million led to the strong beat. For FY20, PPoP grew 11 per cent year on year, in line with AUM growth. While PBT was flat year on year at Rs 2.3 billion, decline in the tax rate led to 17 per cent year on year growth in PAT to Rs 1.8 billion. Net income was up 5 per cent year on year and declined 10 per cent quarter on quarter to Rs 1.04 billion (7 per cent miss).
