ICICI Direct's research report on Persistent Systems

Persistent reported another muted quarter both on revenue and margin front. US$ revenues grew 1.1% QoQ to $119.6 million (below our 2.3% QoQ growth estimate) with softness in IP led business for a fourth consecutive quarter. Further, digital also reported a decline of 5.9% sequentially. Adjusted EBITDA margins dragged 180 bps to 15.6% (from adjusted margins of 17.4% in Q4FY19) mainly due to muted performance in high margin IP led business.


Hence, we maintain our HOLD stance with a revised target price of Rs 575/share (12x FY21E EPS).
