Valuation & Outlook
Despite challenging conditions, AIA reported reasonable volumes in Q1FY21. Concerns remain on how fast developmental customers can return for AIA to gain incremental volume growth in coming years. However, its strong balance sheet, decent cash balance and efficient working capital management would support long term growth. We expect overall revenues to grow at 4.3% CAGR with EBITDA growing at 2.5% CAGR in FY20-22E, amid challenging environment. We believe penetration in the mining segment and volume ramp-up with repeat and loyal customers would aid growth in the medium term. We remain cautiously optimistic and revise our target price to Rs. 1765/ share (29x FY22E EPS). We maintain HOLD rating.
