We expect PSL’s USD revenue to grow by 8.4% q-o-q to $197.5 million in Q3FY2022, led by strong demand, additional revenue contribution from acquisitions, and strong seasonality in IP-led business. PSL targets to achieve $1 billion revenue run-rate in the next 6-8 quarters, implying a CQGR of 4.6% to 6.5%, driven by strong demand, healthy deal intake, strong execution, and M&A activities. EBITDA margin to decline by 60 bps q-o-q to 16% in Q3FY2022, owing to higher ESOP expenses. We expect an additional impact of 30 bps on its EBIT margin owing to higher amortisation expenses.

We retain Buy on PSL with a revised PT of Rs. 5,550, given strong earnings growth potential, healthy deal intake, and robust digital engineering capabilities.
