Prabhudas Lilladher report on Prajay Engineers Syndicate:
For Q4 FY07, Prajay Engineers Syndicate (PES) reported revenue at Rs 985m, a 237% y-o-y jump—in line with expectations. However, net profit, rocketing 265% to Rs 354m surpassed both our expectations as well as management guidance. The OPM has risen from 46.7% a year ago to 50.7%. For the year, revenue rose 187% y-o-y to Rs 2,096m, and net profit, 240% to Rs 772m.
Given the added development potential generated from the new land bank and the much stronger-than-expected operational performance, we raise our revenue figures for FY08E and FY09E by 11.2% and 5.6% respectively to Rs 5,622m and Rs 9,513m. The EPS too has been raised - by 21% and 20% to Rs 36 and Rs 62 respectively for FY08E and FY09E.
At the CMP, the stock trades at 6.9x FY08E and 4.0x FY09E fully diluted earnings. We upgrade Prajay from an ‘Outperformer’ to a ‘BUY’.
