Edelweiss' research report on Crompton Greaves


CG posted a much better P/L in standalone operations with strong 39% YoY growth in EBIDTA for Q3FY17. However, higher interest cost (up 5x YoY & 32% QoQ) led to flattish PAT. The company sustained strong traction in order intake. In Q3FY17, new orders growth at 19% YoY to INR 12.2bn was led by strong growth in industrial orders (up 36% YoY), which was driven by robust ordering in railway segment in past 2-3 quarters.
