Dilip Buildcon reported a revenue of Rs. 21.5bn (+12%/0% YoY/QoQ, 28% miss); while its EBITDA margin stood at 10.6%, contracted sharply, on account of under-absorption of fixed overheads and elevated raw material prices. HDFC states, "NHAI restriction on bidding lifted; OI of Rs. 80-100bn in FY22: The order book (OB), as of Sep-21, stood at Rs. 231bn, with Rs. 80-100bn expected in FY22. 47.15% of the OB is now road projects and this is likely to increase, following the lifting of restriction from bidding NHAI projects."
Comments by HDFC Securities
The company has shown weak financial performances, and missed estimates. The company had faced slow execution in large projects. According to HDFC, "High commodity price volatility has led to price escalation coverage reducing to 50-60% in EPC projects and 40% in EPC HAM. We maintain BUY, however, given the margin pressure and cut our EPS along with TP to Rs. 722/sh."
