Bhel's Q1FY21 revenues were at Rs. 1990.9 crore with a significant decline of 56.1% YoY impacted by execution headwinds and Covid-19. On the segmental front, power segment revenues fell 67.9% to Rs. 1119.4 crore YoY whereas industrial segment revenue fell 15.4% to Rs. 777.2 crore YoY. The company posted EBITDA level loss of Rs. 1058.9 crore (vs. EBITDA level loss of Rs. 266.7 crore in Q1FY20) YoY owing to less revenue booking and higher-than-expected operating expenses. Net loss came in at Rs. 897.2 crore (vs. net loss of Rs. 216.2 crore in Q1FY20), partly aided by deferred tax adjustment.
Valuation & Outlook
Execution challenges and high level of receivables (~Rs. 35332 crore, down 6.6%, YoY) are key concerns and could hamper medium term growth prospects. However, transformation strategy to optimise operational cost and initiatives like utilisation of manufacturing facilities & industrial land are likely to help diversify in non-power business and provide long term revenue visibility. We revise our target price to Rs. 35 (15x FY22EPS) and maintain our HOLD recommendation.
