ADD on Tata Consultancy Services - Strong progression - HDFC Securities

Posted On: 2021-04-13 09:05:23 (Time Zone: Arizona, USA)

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

We maintain ADD on TCS, following a strong 4Q performance, robust growth indicators, and positive commentary (3-5 years structural growth drivers). The near-term growth visibility is high, supported by strong bookings (4Q book-to-bill higher than FY20 and 9MFY21 book-to-bill) and higher mix of smaller deals. We believe TCS' calibrated focus on upstream/consulting business will increase its addressable market. The industry-leading execution continues with markers such as decline in attrition (though uptick in sub-con), reversion to normal wage cycle, and investments in up-skilling (enabling partnerships, solution expertise). TCS' commentary on supply-side (no concerns) was a contrast to Accenture's commentary (reversion of attrition to pre-COVID level), and we believe that the uptick in demand will increase the attrition differential within the sector. Core verticals look healthy with strong bookings in BFSI and Retail & CPG (both in value and volume terms). Our target price of INR 3,470 is based on 28x Mar-23E EPS with EPS CAGR at 17% over FY21-23E.

4QFY21 highlights: (1) Revenue came at the highest ever 4Q in the past ten years at 4.2% QoQ CC (5.9% YoY). (2) EBIT margin hit a 22-quarter high at 26.8%, +23bps QoQ supported by higher gross margin, offset by higher sub-con. (3) Net addition was robust in 4Q at 19,388. (4) BFSI and Retail & CPG verticals grew 7% QoQ and 4% QoQ in CC terms, supported by ramp-up of large deal wins and strong bookings during the quarter. (5) Deal TCV of USD 9.2bn (book-to-bill 1.54x) included NorthAm bookings at USD 4.2bn, BFSI bookings at USD 3.9bn, and Retail & CPG bookings at USD 4.2bn.

Outlook: Accelerated cloud adoption, vendor consolidation, and uptick in transformational deals will support the flight to quality. We have factored in USD revenue growth of 15.9%/10.9% for FY22/23E with 1QFY22 at 3.1% QoQ. EBIT margin for TCS is factored in at 26.4%/27.5% for FY22/23E. Valuations are at 30.4/26.2x with FY21-23E EPS CAGR at 17%.
