L&T Technology Services: We maintain REDUCE on L&T Technology Services (LTTS) as valuations more than adequately factor in the recovery curve despite a strong (in-line) 3Q and accelerating growth/margin profile in the near term. We acknowledge LTTS' prowess in digital ER&D across verticals and addressability, yet the business cyclicality feeds into the volatile profile over the medium term. Deal momentum has evidently picked up in ER&D (USD 100mn-5yr Oil & Gas deal and seven deals >USD 10mn a validation). Margin recovery is supported by increasing utilisation/offshore (now a familiar trend), better mix and operating leverage, which should support the strong earnings momentum for FY22. The company is targeting 17%+ EBIT margins and raised its FY21 revenue growth guidance to -6.5% (-7 to -8% earlier). Our target price is Rs 2,175, at 22x Dec-22E EPS (20x earlier). Federal Bank: FB's 3QFY21 operating performance increasingly demonstrates an improving franchise that is beginning to find and consistently exercise pricing power (a gradual 9bps QoQ NIM expansion and strong fee traction). Provisions remained sticky (~130bps ann.), as FB continued to cover pro forma slippages. Even as we continue to monitor asset quality outcomes, we revise our earnings upwards as we foresee a sustained improvement in operating metrics. Maintain BUY with a target price of Rs 92 (1.0x FY23E ABV). Bajaj Finance: BAF reported a mixed quarter as LLPs remained expectedly sticky even as AUM growth showed signs of broad-based recovery as most businesses (excluding auto finance) recovered to 85-100% of pre-COVID disbursal levels. BAF is now focussing on business transformation...

L&T; Infotech (LTI)'s 3QFY21 USD revenue growth of 5.3% QoQ CC (est. 4.0% QoQ CC) was broad-based, barring Insurance (-0.6% QoQ) and E&U; (0.1% QoQ). The 3Q EBIT margin expansion of only 70bp QoQ (to 20.6%) despite high improvement in utilization (+220bp QoQ) and the offshore mix (+100bp QoQ) was due to pass-through business and employee additions (1,500+). During the quarter, LTI reported the highest ever TCV of large deal wins of USD278m inclusive of the earlier announced USD204m win with Injazat. We continue to expect LTI to deliver revenue growth on the higher end of...

We attended the virtual analyst meet of Larsen & Toubro Infotech (LTI). The company highlighted that it aspires to achieve US$1 billion in cloud revenues in the next three years from current US$180 million implying 77% CAGR over the next three years from this unit. In addition, LTI has won a large deal in the UAE amounting to ~AED760 million (~US$205 million) over the next six years.

Larsen and Toubro Infotech (LTI) at the analyst meet held on 10th Dec. 2020 did not give a specific revenue guidance but exuded confidence that it will continue to be in the top quartile of revenue growth of the industry (clocked 14.5% CAGR in USD terms during FY16-FY20). It reiterated its commitment to hold PAT margin at 14-15%. The confidence on revenue growth seems to stem from continued investments in (1) sales, localization, reskilling and capability building (2) dedicated cloud investments (3) its new focus on products connected with data analytics. Growth is going to come from both new logos as well as expansion of existing relationships. These efforts have resulted in a large deal pipeline, growing by 62% to...

As part of the increased Cloud and Products focus, LTI is planning to increase investment in its sales and marketing team. Increased investment is necessary for it to establish its presence in front of customers and should benefit in the long term. However, we are skeptical of its ability to generate outsized revenue growth from these businesses in the medium term due to elevated competition, and expect these investments to continue over the next few years....
