LTI's strong pedigree is reflected in its (1) Broad-based vertical presence (and sub-vertical strategy) with marquee accounts, (2) Strong client mining programs and large deal portfolio, and (3) Leading margin/return metrics vs. peers. Client specific challenges (in BFS and Hi-tech) have probably troughed and large deal trajectory is expected to improve growth momentum hereon. Our revenue/EPS CAGR over FY19-22E is ~10/8%. The stock is not inexpensive at 16.9x FY21E, but we believe LTI has the pedigree to command higher valuations as earnings growth becomes more visible. We maintain BUY on L&T; Infotech (LTI) following an in-line rev/margin performance and unchanged est. Large deal wins, deal ramps and reduction in client-specific challenges provide growth visibility (2H acceleration). Our TP of Rs 1,845 is based on 18x Sep-21E EPS.

LTI confirmed that the worst is over as regards the decline in the revenue from the topclient. However, it expect decline in revenue from another top-10 client in the BFS vertical in Q2FY20. Also, there have been ramp-down in couple of deals. This is likely to impact its growth in Q2FY20, however it is still confident of a QoQ growth. We factor slower growth for Q1/Q2FY20 and cut our FY20/21E revenue (in US$) by 2.5%/1.8% and EPS by 6.7%/5.7%. We now forecast FY19-21E revenue (US$)/EPS CAGR of 13.6%/9%. We remain confident of LTI gaining back the high growth momentum in...

Despite the client-specific hiccups, strong pipeline, large deal wins and investments in digital provide growth visibility. LTI's strong pedigree is reflected in its (1) Marquee account base (66 in F-500), (2) Strong client mining (supported by ADEA and Minecraft programs) reflecting in top 11-20 and focus on large deals, (3) Sub-vertical strategy (e.g. insurance), and (5) Leading margin/return metrics vs. peers. Revenue/EPS CAGR over FY19-22E estimated at 11/10%. Key risks include extended period of spend cuts by large accounts and INR appreciation. We maintain BUY on L&T; Infotech (LTI) post a soft (in-line) 1QFY20. Cut estimates by ~4% to factor near-term client-specific challenges, however deal wins provide growth visibility. Our TP of Rs 2,115 is based on 20x Jun-21E EPS.

Performance during the quarter was dragged by volatility in top accounts. Revenues from the top 6-10 clients declined 6.7% sequentially. EBIT margin during the quarter stood at 16%, declining 170bp sequentially. Decline in margins was led by (a) visa cost - 100bp, (b) sales and marketing investments - 100bp, and (c) currency movement - 20bp. The decline was partially offset by higher working days and adoption of IND-AS, which contributed +25bp to the margins. has suffered over the last couple of quarters due to spending cuts in its top account. While this bottomed out in 1QFY20, there are other top accounts with specific issues, which would weigh down near-term revenue growth. Completion of project from a large African client and ramp-down in certain sizeable accounts should offset the revenue visibility from net-new deals in 2QFY20. For now, LTI expects normal growth to resume from 3QFY20.
