Buy Madhucon Projects; target of Rs 56: Angel Broking

Angel Broking is bullish on Madhucon Projects and has recommended buy rating on the stock with a target of Rs 56 in its August 14, 2012 research report.


“For 1QFY2013, Madhucon Projects Ltd (MPL) reported a mixed set of numbers with revenue coming in below our expectations. However, a higher EBITDAM resulted in a better-than-expected earnings performance. MPL’s order book stands tall at ~Rs7,000cr (3.2x FY2013E revenue), providing good visibility for the next couple of years. We maintain our Buy recommendation on the stock.”


“On the top-line front, MPL posted a disappointing performance with a y-o-y increase of 2.1% to Rs336cr, way below our expectations of Rs425cr. As per the management, a ramp up in execution of Barasat Krishnagar and Ranchi Rargon Jamshedpur projects will drive the company’s revenue growth going ahead. The EBITDAM came in at 14.0%, flat on a y-o-y basis but posted a jump of 220bp on a q-o-q basis against our expectation of 11.9%. Interest cost stood at Rs24cr a jump of 15.1% on a y-o-y basis but a decline of 11.3% on a sequential basis. On the earnings front, the company posted a decline of 11.9% yoy at Rs7cr, higher than our expectations of Rs5cr. This is despite a higher tax rate (39.5%) on the back of higher EBITDAM and lower-than-expected interest cost.”


“MPL has an equity requirement of ~Rs570cr for its build-operate-transfer (BOT) road projects. We believe the key triggers to watch out for MPL would be a pick-up in execution in the development business and raising money for the same. Hence, we believe until then the stock would be a sector performer and real value would be created only on unlocking at the subsidiary level. We have valued MPL on a SOTP basis to arrive at a target price of Rs56 and maintain our Buy rating on the stock,” says Angel Broking research report.
