Company performance

"Ahluwalia Contracts (AHLU) reported a revenue/EBITDA/APAT beat of 24/(1.1)/(1.4)%. Whilst execution normalized since the start of Q2FY22, commodity price volatility negatively impacted margins," the brokerage firm informs. Given robust execution, AHLU has increased the earlier 15-20% revenue growth guidance for FY22 to 20-25% and, given benign commodity prices, it lowered 11-12% EBITDA margin guidance to ~10%. The NWC days reduced to 91, from 107 in Q1FY22.

According to HDFC Securities, "Given robust order book (OB) and execution, we have increased our estimates for FY22/23/24. We maintain Buy with an increased TP of Rs. 519 (13x multiple; Sep-23E EPS), given the robust OB, net cash balance sheet, and better RoE/RoCE than peers. We expect the uptick in growth and margin expansion to continue through H2 FY22 as Covid-19 headwinds recede."
