"Further, the company's EBIT expansion, record hiring, logo additions, large deal wins and healthy deal pipeline remained impressive.

Net profit for L&T Technology Services came in at Rs 248.8 crore (up 8.2% q-o-q and 34% y-o-y) and was in line with our estimates, the brokerage said.

"The management maintained its annual USD revenue growth guidance to 19-20% despite strong growth (20.3% y-o-y) in 9MFY2022, which implies a sequential revenue growth of 1.4-4.7% for Q4FY2022. We expect margins to remain under pressure in the near term given higher discretionary expenses, supply-side concerns and skill-based premium," it noted.

The stock of L&T Technology Services was last seen trading at Rs 4967 on the NSE.

According to Sharekhan, L&T Infotech's scalable business model helps it to grow faster in a strong demand environment, with stable profitability.

"Strong demand was led by higher spends on cloud and digital transformation initiatives, spend on newer technologies and higher offshoring opportunities owing to a talent crunch," the brokerage has said.

L&T Infotech is well-placed to remain in the top quadrant of the industry in terms of revenue growth in the medium-term. "We maintain a Buy on L&T Infotech with a price target of Rs. 8,100 given its strength in core modernization capability, robust client base, and superior digital competencies. We expect revenue/EPS to clock 18%/21% CAGR over FY2022-24," the brokerage has said.

The stock of L&T Infotech was last seen trading at Rs 6521 in the NSE.
