Evosys operates in a high growth segment of Enterprise Cloud Applications where Oracle is one of the leading players for cloud applications in HCM (Human Capital Management), ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning), SCM (Supply Chain Management) and BI (Business Intelligence).

The cloud services market continues to grow faster than traditional IT segments and Mastek has seen healthy opportunity on digital transformation phase in the industry.
Mastek reported robust margins over the last three quarters and has many levers to improve margins like higher offshoring, SG&A rationalisation and optimisation of employee cost along with sales as well as administration cost. We expect, EBIT margin of ~17-18% in FY22E and FY23E. UK Government & Evosys which is likely to contribute ~70% of Mastek FY22E revenues are expected to deliver higher margins (UK Govnment-18 & Evosys-22%) while the remaining 30% of the is likely to be low margin at ~13-14%.
