- Voltas delivered all-round good set of quarterly numbers led by strong performance of the MEP segment. As a result, broad numbers were higher than our estimates. Improvement in order book and sustained uptick in order intake is a positive for the MEP business.
- We remain positive on the long term growth potential of the room AC industry. Voltas is the market leader and has a strong brand and distribution network in the industry. It is well positioned to ride the growth in the industry. Post the strong quarter numbers, we are finetuning our earnings forecast and also our target price.
- However, in view of modest upside, we maintain our Accumulate rating (BUY on declines) on the stock with a revised target price of Rs 610 (prior target of Rs 506).
- Risks include - Execution delays in ongoing MEP projects and benign weather conditions during the summer which is the peak season for the room AC segment
