KNR Constructions (KNRC) continued to report robust operating performance in 3QFY20 despite lower-than-expected revenue booking.

Dismal Performance with No Improvement in GRM; Maintain REDUCE Bharat Petroleum Corporation Ltd. (BPCL) has delivered a disappointing performance in 3QFY20.

NCC Ltd (NJCC) has reported a weak performance in 3QFY20 owing to muted revenue booking led by project cancellation and absence of convincing pick-up in construction activities post monsoon. Reported revenue declined by 34% YoY to Rs21.2bn vs. our estimate of Rs24.5bn, while EBITDA witnessed a de-growth of 36% YoY to Rs2.5bn. EBITDA margin contracted by 36bps YoY and 165bps QoQ to 11.8%. Adjusted profit declined by a sharp 66% YoY (10% QoQ) to Rs543mn mainly led by soft execution. Notably, NJCC has set aside slow-moving and likelyto-be-cancelled projects worth Rs71.3bn from its order backlog in order to have a clear visibility of revenue booking from the ongoing projects. Therefore, its current order backlog stands at Rs250.5bn, which is 2.7x TTM revenue and still gives decent revenue visibility. Going forward,...
