CTG [O-PF +18.1%] - Improving earnings to quicken bad debt clearance - Update

We lift our rating for CTG to OUTPERFORM with a 18% total return thanks to an improving profit growth outlook and a shorter than expected bad debt clearing process. Sizable bond issuance in 2016 boosted CAR ratio, allowing higher loan growth than previously forecast. Deposit growth will slow in 2017 after surging in 2016 thanks to LDR cap lift from 80% to 90%.
