Marked shift in earnings trajectory on the cards We see Persistent System's (PSL) accelerating earnings at a ~25% CAGR over FY20-FY23 on the back of a ~13.5% INR revenue growth and an expansion in EBIT margins by ~450bps. Until 6-9 months back, PSL had been underperforming its peers due to a rather lackluster EPS growth of just ~4% over FY15-FY20 despite a ~13.5% INR revenue CAGR as its EBIT margin compressed by 650bps (entirely gross margin driven due to higher onsite mix, likely lower margins in IP, Alliances and offshore services businesses). This turnaround in our view can be partly attributed to Sandeep Kalra, the new CEO, who was heading its Technology Services...

Persistent Systems: We upgrade Persistent Systems (PSYS) to BUY (ADD earlier) due to a structural pivot towards growth acceleration, following underperformance in FY16-20 period. PSYS' relative outperformance in FY21 and growth acceleration (20% EPS CAGR over FY20-23E) is driven by (1) recovery in Technology Services (deal sourcing, partnerships, client mining, and improving annuity), and (2) better operational rigour and business synergies improving the operating profile translating into 22% FCF CAGR over FY20-23E. Revival in Alliance business (Red Hat, Dassault) and prospects of better capital allocation (cash ~19% of M-cap) are value-accretive triggers. Our target price is Rs 1,520, based on 21x Sep-22E EPS and supported by 20% EPS CAGR, >35% RoIC. ICICI Lombard: While FY21E is expected to be a muted year in terms of top-line growth, we believe ICICIGI will deliver lower CORs. We remain cautious on health claims as a second wave of COVID-19 may result in significant increase in claims. Additionally, changing regulations in motor are expected to drive down both claims and tariffs, creating supernormal profitability in the short term. We believe that this period (of supernormal profitability) will be short-lived, as we expect IRDAI to restrict TP pricing growth, thereby restricting profitability. We believe the market is not factoring this risk; accordingly, we rate ICICIGI a REDUCE with a target price of Rs 1,141 (DDM derived Sep-22E P/E of 26.4x and a P/ABV of 5.2x).

Persistent reported sequential revenue growth of 3.9% (USD) and an EBIT margin of 12.1% (~170bp expansion), ahead of estimates. Growth was driven by the Services business, partly offset by the IP portfolio due to seasonality in the Reseller business. Broad-based performance was encouraging. Healthy growth in Services despite a high base indicated steady progress on the turnaround. Management commentary further implied a healthy deal pipeline in the Services business. We expect this vertical to continue to deliver even with...

Persistent System's (PSL) 3.1% QoQ revenue growth in 1QFY21 in USD terms was much better than the 7.2% decline we were anticipating. EBIT margin at 10.4% was also much better than our estimate of 7.5%. Our expectation of a cut back in discretionary small project spend in a recessionary environment in developed markets did not come true in the current quarter for PSL. Its 3.1% QoQ growth was driven by the IP stream which grew 10% while IT services grew by ~2%. The accelerite IP revenue (~4% of revenue) has been added to the services revenue stream from 1QFY21 which hints at a potential decline in pure services revenue QoQ on a liketo-like basis. This is after a gap of 6 quarters of consistent growth for the services stream. PSL's margins improved sequentially and YoY mainly due to curtailment in SG&A; expenses by...
