CLSA | Rating: Sell | Target: Rs 40
The Q4 was weak with its execution. It cleaned up its balance sheet with Rs 1,800 crore in provisions, whether this is a precursor to divestment remains to be seen.
CLSA cut FY22 EPS estimate by 7% to factor in weak discom financials.
Kotak Institutional Equities | Rating: Sell | Target: Rs 34
The company reported weak results on execution, gross margin & working capital. The weak gross margin casts doubts on its ability to report topline high enough to cover fixed costs.
