Maintain ADD on Mindtree - Into another operating orbit - HDFC Securities

Posted On: 2021-01-19 05:11:51 (Time Zone: Arizona, USA)

Mr. Apurva Prasad, Institutional Research Analyst, HDFC Securities & Mr. Amit Chandra, Institutional Research Analyst, HDFC Securities

We maintain ADD on Mindtree, following broad-based growth (a second successive quarter of non-T1 growing ahead of T1) and a stellar 3Q operational performance (offshore + utilisation led). Margins have increased an astounding 13pp since the pre-COVID trough and management expects the >20% EBITDA to continue. Growth accelerated beyond the T1 account as deal TCV was a robust USD 312mn (9MFY21 TCV at >USD 1bn up 20%). While Travel & Hospitality vertical bounced back, it is still ~45% off the 4Q levels. The BFSI vertical performance was soft (relative to larger peers), but the narrative changes in Tech & Media vertical and CPG, Retail & Mfg with greater than mid-single-digit sequential growth. The near-term growth outlook remains positive and blends well with the favourable operational outcome of the strategic initiatives (annuity, partnerships, tail rationalisation and re-skilling focus). Our target price is Rs 1,735, valued at 20x Dec-22E EPS (13% CAGR over FY21-23E following ~70% in FY21).

3QFY21 highlights: (1) Mindtree's revenue came at USD 274mn, 5% QoQ in USD terms with T1 growth at 3.6% QoQ following -1% QoQ in 2Q and strong growth in ex-T1 business (+5.6% QoQ following +4.9% QoQ in 2Q). (2) EBITDA margin improved by +286bps QoQ to 23.1% supported by healthy revenue growth and operational efficiencies; wage hike across the board to be rolled out in 4QFY21, which will have a negative impact of -250bps on margins (offset by the absence of 3Q one-time provision). (4) Management expects EBITDA margin to be in the range 20%+, going ahead. (4) Growth was broad-based across the verticals with recovery in Travel (+13% QoQ); however, softness has been witnessed in BFSI (+0.8% QoQ).

Outlook: With healthy deal pipeline, recovery in travel vertical will support growth ahead. We have factored in USD revenue growth of -1.7/+12.9/+10.7% and EBITDA% at 20.6/20.8/20.7% for FY21/22/23E respectively. EPS CAGR of 13% over FY21-23E, >40% RoIC, >5% FCF yield support valuations (21.0/18.7x FY22/23E).
