“At CMP of Rs43.9, the stock is trading at a PE of 9.9x in FY13E and 7.4x in FY14E it EPS of Rs4.4 & Rs5.9 respectively. We expect the losses from Europe to come down; better performance by EAP and AMESA and stable performance by Americas will drive the consolidated earnings. We strongly believe that the restructuring in different geographies, plus robust demand from the FMCG sector and EPL holding as a dominant position with limited competitors will lead healthy growth. We are also of the opinion that the initiatives taken by the company will be more visible in FY14E. We recommend investors to BUY with a long term view,” says Way2Wealth research report.
