LTTS reported revenue de-growth of -2.0% QoQ USD 3% below our estimates (Ple:1% QoQ, Cons: 1.2%). Weak revenue growth was on account of steep decline of 8.8% QoQ in plant & engineering. Vertical was impacted by project closures in O&G; segment & we believe this vertical will take longer to revive. Reported EBIT margin at 15.2% was down 160 bps QoQ (Ple/Cons: 17.2%), while adjusted for one-off (contribution to PM CARES fund) was 16.5% (-30 bps QoQ). Margin was impacted by lower revenue but aided by strong currency tailwinds. We expect FY21 margin to be impacted by lower revenue....

We maintain our conviction on LTTS based on (1) Preferred pick in ER&D on diversified vertical mix (low concentration risk) and niche position in Process Industry and Industrial products, (2) At an inflexion point with stability/recovery expected in Telecom & Hi-tech vertical, (3) Strong account mining engine with T30 program (>USD 10mn client bucket had 3 additions QoQ). Expect USD rev/EPS CAGR at 12.5/15.2% over FY19-22E factoring USD rev growth at 10.1/12.2/15.1% and EBIT% at 17.1/17.0/17.5% for FY20/21/22E, respectively. Key risk continues to be macros, trade war escalation (Industrial products vertical). We maintain our BUY on L&T; Tech (LTTS) based on in-line performance, growth bottoming-out in 3Q on strong wins/pipeline and expectation of stability/recovery in Telecom & Hi-tech vertical.

LTTS continues to outperform ER&D peers, even as near term growth has slowed. We believe this has more to do with macros, and reckon that LTTS is reasonably resilient with its relatively stronger technical capabilities, diversified vertical mix and niche position in Process Industry and Industrial products. We build USD rev/EPS to post 11.5/14.5% CAGR over FY19-22E. That macros can play a bigger spoilsport than now is the only risk. We maintain BUY on LTTS despite the EPS downgrade (~5%) on weak near-term outlook (2Q nos were in-line). While relative outperformance continues, deceleration in growth trajectory limits our optimism. Our TP is Rs 1,705, based on 18x Sep-21E (20x earlier).

Despite emerging challenges in Telecom & Hi-tech vertical, LTTS is the strongest play in ER&D based on (1) Business resilience supported by vertical diversification and low client concentration (vs. peers), (2) Broad-based deal wins & deal pipeline, (3) Growth outperformance in largest vertical (Transportation) vs. peers and (4) Shift in business-mix to support margins. Expect USD rev/EPS growth of 15/17% CAGR over FY19-22E. Key risks include adverse macros (trade war) and INR appreciation. We maintain BUY on LTTS following an in-line 1Q performance. We lower est. by ~3% to factor near-term weakness in Telecom/Hi-tech vertical, however broad-based wins/pipeline provide growth visibility (continues to be industry leading). Our TP is Rs 1,955, at 20x Jun-21E EPS.

Despite a significant improvement in its balance sheet, execution pick up and robust order inflows, L&T;'s P/E multiple has not changed over the last three years. We believe that this is due to persistent concerns on at least one out of the four key parameters on which investors evaluate L&T;: 1) execution pick up; 2) balance sheet/ROE; 3) order inflow momentum; and 4) margins. Although L&T; has partially delivered on strengthening its balance sheet over FY16-18, execution improvement in the core domestic infrastructure is also evident over FY18-19. To...

L&T; Technology Services (LTTS) surprised again with a 7.5% QoQ USD revenue growth in 4QFY18. It expects revenues to grow at least 16% in FY19 and at 15% CAGR to USD1bn in FY21 (including USD c.120mn from future acquisitions) given strong deal wins/pipeline.
