The order book to bill ratio stands at ~2.1x FY12 sales. Favorable order book gives us the revenue visibility of next 24-30 months. The segmental order book break up stands at 49% from building, 24% from water & irrigation and balance 28% from transport segment. Order inflow during FY12 had been phenomenal and stood at ~Rs. 30.2 bn and the management expects ~Rs 50 bn of order inflow during FY13 (which includes L1 orders).

The company has identified Bangalore real estate project and another Nagpur hotel project in which it would dilute its stake to private equity firms.”
“We expect the company’s top line to grow at a healthy CAGR rate of ~17% during FY12 to FY14E.
