HSIE Results Daily: Alkem Labs, Prince Pipes, BSE, HG Infra, Somany Ceramics, ITD Cementation

HG Infra: HG Infra (HG) reported revenue/EBITDA/APAT at INR 9.1/1.5/0.9bn, ahead of our estimates by 28/30/50%. The order book (OB) stands at INR 61bn (~2.4x FY21 revenue). Over the past few quarters, HG has delivered a strong execution outperformance, strengthened its balance sheet, started winning new orders, and showed strong recovery in NWC days. We believe HG deserves a multiple upgrade, backed by robust growth and solid financial discipline. We increase our P/E target multiple from 10x to 12x, upgrade our FY22/23 EPS by 5.8/6.3%, and roll forward our valuation to Jun-23E. We maintain BUY with an increased SOTP-based TP of INR 702/Sh. Somany Ceramics: We maintain our BUY rating on Somany Ceramics (SOMC) with an unchanged target price of INR 940/share (13x Jun23E consolidated EBITDA). We continue to like SOMC for its strong retail distribution, improving product mix, and tightened working capital. In Q1FY22, pandemic impact pulled down SOMCs tiles volume by 41% QoQ and even bathware revenue halved. Thus, consolidated revenue/EBITDA/APAT fell 41/74/91% QoQ to INR 3,299/231/45mn respectively. In addition to the op-lev loss, soaring fuel prices also hit the margin and profits. ITD Cementation: ITD Cementation (ITD) reported in-line revenue/EBITDA at INR 8.2/0.8bn. However, APAT missed our estimates by 19% on higher-than-expected taxes and lower share of profits from associates/JVs. The order backlog (OB) is robust at INR 120bn (4.4x FY21 revenue), aided by Q1FY22 order wins of INR 16bn. While the lockdown impacted execution to an extent during the quarter, ITD has retained its earlier guidance of 15-20% topline growth for FY22....

Strong operations led by increased market activity

BSE reported operational revenue growth of 24% YoY in 4QFY21. Growth was led by a 117% YoY increase in equity transaction charges; this was partially offset by revenue decline in Star MF on moderation in realization on the platform. Overall strong market activity led to an 86%/17% YoY increase in transaction charges / services to corporates. A robust increase in margins was the function of operating leverage in the business. The managements decision to explore options to unlock value from its Star MF segment is encouraging; however, no bids have been accepted thus far....

HSIE Results Daily: ITC, Cipla, Ujjivan Small Finance Bank and Ujjivan Financial Services, Dilip Buildcon, BSE

BSE: We maintain BUY on BSE based on better-than-expected revenue and operational performance. Revenue growth of 21.5/15.2% QoQ/YoY was led by improvement in core revenue (cash transaction +51.8% QoQ) and higher listing fee (+20.7% QoQ). EBITDA margin improved to 17.8% vs. -7.8% QoQ (highest in the past nine quarters) due to the rise in revenue and a decline in fixed cost (-7.2% QoQ). The StAR MF platform witnessed strong growth (+67% YoY), but the fall in realisation impacted revenue in 2Q, which should normalise from 3Q onwards. BSE cash market share declined to 5.9% (-80bps YoY) despite the jump in volumes. It is trying to build the derivative volume again, the market share of which is currently at 4%. The revival of derivatives volume on BSE, smart order routing, and interoperability are key triggers to transaction revenue (market share gain). New initiatives like insurance platform, spot exchange and INX are promising but do not provide revenue visibility in the near term. We arrive at an SoTP-based target price of Rs 680 by assigning 10x multiple to core Sep-22E PAT (Rs 125/share), Rs 160/share for the CDSL stake (25% discount) and adding net cash excluding SGF and clearing cash (Rs 395/share). BSE has net cash of Rs 17.8bn (~79% of market cap) and a dividend yield of ~5%, which limits downside. The stock is trading at a P/E of 12.0/10.3x FY21/22E EPS.

Operational beat led by strong market activity

BSEs 2QFY21 reported revenue was above estimates, largely led higher revenue from services to corporates. Managements decision to explore options to unlock value from its Star MF segment is encouraging. Strong transactional income from the Equity segment was offset by lower revenue in Star MF on one-time rate negotiation. Cross-subsidization by NSE has limited monetization opportunities for BSE in the INX and Commodity Derivatives segments in the near term. While the announced additional income streams may be small currently, some of them have the potential to...

Stable commentary

Cross-subsidization by NSE has limited monetization opportunities for BSE in the Star MF, INX, and Commodity Derivatives segments in the near term. This was primarily due to a decrease in turnover by 26% YoY in the Equity Cash segment (special rate group) in 1QFY21 and one- While total expenditure of INR1.0b was lower than estimated, overall decline in revenues resulted in largely in-line EBITDA (v/s estimates).

BSE (3QFY20): Win some, lose some. Maintain NEUTRAL

BSE cash market share has slipped to 6.4% vs ~13/9% in FY18/19 and currency derivative segment is also facing tough competition. Investments in INX and newer initiatives (commodity & Insurance distribution) have impacted EBITDA margins (1.1% in 9MFY20, down ~7% YoY). We expect revenue growth of 12.0/10.4% in FY21/22E led by rebound in transaction revenue (better market condition, StAR MF and INX contribution). We expect operating leverage to play out with growth (EBITDA margin of 8.8/14.2% for FY21/22E). BSE has net cash of Rs ~20bn (~77% of MCap) and a dividend yield of ~5%, which limits downside. Risks include rise in competition, loss of market share and increase in investments. We maintain NEU on BSE based on revenue and margin miss in 3QFY20. The core revenue stream is under pressure, margin is in the negative territory due to ongoing investments in new initiatives (INX). BSE cash market share has declined to 6.4% but StAR MF platform is witnessing continued traction. We arrive at a SoTP based TP of Rs 590 by assigning 15x multiple to core Dec-21E PAT (Rs 46/sh), Rs 105/sh for the CDSL stake and adding net cash (Rs 439/sh).

BSE is witnessing continuous decline in core business metrics. Cash market share has slipped to 6.7% vs ~13/9% in FY18/19 and currency derivative is also under pressure. Continued investments in INX and newer initiatives (commodity & Insurance distribution) have impacted EBITDA margins (2.1% in 1HFY20, down ~10% YoY). We expect revenue growth of 12.8/0.3% in FY21/22E led by rebound in transaction revenue (better market condition, StAR MF and INX contribution). We expect some operating leverage to play out with growth (EBITDA margin of 12.0/16.5% for FY21/22E). BSE has net cash of Rs ~20bn (~82% of MCap) and a dividend yield of ~6%, which limits downside.

BSE (1QFY20): Investing for the future. Maintain BUY

BSE has been investing in future growth drivers like INX, Insurance distribution, SME and StAR MF. Out of these only StAR MF has started generating revenue while the rest would need more time. Incremental revenue from StAR MF, volume revival and higher listing fee should lead to revenue growth of 11.1/11.8% in FY20/21E. We expect some operating leverage to play out with growth (EBITDA margin of 11.4/15.8% for FY20/21E). The stock is down 23% in the last 3M due to stress in the tradition revenue stream, continued investments despite slowdown and buyback tax. Value is emerging with net cash of Rs 20bn (~80% of MCap) and a dividend yield of ~7%. Risks include a rise in competition, loss of market share and an increase in investments. We maintain BUY on BSE based on in-line revenue and better margins. Increasing revenue contribution from StAR MF platform and rise in listing fee (exclusively listed) are positives. Buyback of Rs 4.6bn will be completed and tax applicable is only Rs 0.12bn (~3%). We arrive at a SoTP of Rs 655 at 25x core FY21E PAT plus Rs 134/share for stake in CDSL plus net-cash (ex-buyback and with 20% discount).

PAT dragged by one-time expenses???

2 November 2018 consolidated operating revenues grew 1.2% YoY to INR1.12b, below our estimate of INR1.2b. The miss was on account of lower other revenues which includes Rent, Training, Recovery charges, etc. Operating revenues exclude Treasury Income from Clearing Corporation. EBITDA at INR93m was below our estimate of INR167m, but included one-time charges totaling INR74m from [1] provision for investment in IL&FS;, and [2] provision for bad debts. Adjusted for the same, EBITDA would have been in line. PAT was INR459m (-31% YoY), 12% miss, which again would have been in line adjusted for the one-offs. revenue grew 1% YoY, revenues from equity cash transactions fell 33% YoY to INR218m, owing to prevailing market conditions. The same is the case for Book Building services too, down 28% YoY to INR72m. Annual listing fees, an annuity in nature, grew 10% YoY to INR472m.
