Margins in this segment expanded by 574bps and 39bps yoy and sequentially to 6.2% on back of better margin profile jobs executed during the quarter and improved margin in commercial air-conditioning and service business.

Unitary Products: Revenue grew 31.1% yoy, in-line with estimates. Improvement in general business sentiment, increased share of business from e-commerce and sustained initiatives such as introduction of new product categories and foray into new customer categories. Commercial Refrigeration business which saw increased traction from retail and pharma segment also contributed to growth of the unitary products.

Professional Electronics and Industrial Systems: PEIS revenue grew 16.6% yoy as orders from healthcare business and essential services from government remained encouraging. Opportunities from BFSI sector for data security and solutions business led to growth in revenue.

Near-term outlook - We expect business environment to remain challenging due to intermittent lockdown in various states and cities, while its unitary products business being a seasonal product could see higher impact of lockdowns.

Our view - The stock continues to trade at expensive levels of 31x FY23 EPS. Given the difficult business environment and intermittent lock down in various part of the country, there could be downside risk to the earnings estimates. We have Reduce rating on the stock with TP of Rs760.
