EBITDA margins came in at 21.7%, below our estimate of 22.4% and down 100 bps on a YoY basis on account of more than expected increase in raw material expenses and other expenses AIA reported PAT at Rs 104.2 crore vs. our estimate of Rs 105.9 crore registering a growth of 18.3% on YoY basis, however effective tax rate increased from 200bps to 33.5% YoY basis.
Strong visibility ramps up of mining segment along with focus on hedging power cost indicates margin recovery from FY19E onwards. We expect revenues and PAT to grow at a CAGR of 20% and 16.8%, respectively, in FY18E-20E. We believe that AIA could benefit significantly from recent recovery in sales volumes in mining segment and recent technical collaboration. We revise our target price upward at 30x FY20E pegs fair value of Rs 1910/ share and maintain BUY rating.
