Order inflow environment improving: The momentum of order wins has continued in this quarter, with KECI winning ~INR25b worth of orders, including the recently won order worth ~INR10b. Notably, order inflows have commenced in the Railways segment and are likely to pick up hereafter. 9MFY21 order wins (to date) amount to ~INR68b. Although this is below INR98b worth of orders won in 9MFY20, we attribute the wins to large firsttime orders in the Civil segment in the base year as the company had forayed into metros (Kochi and Delhi metro orders). The order inflow momentum is picking up as we enter a busy season in terms of construction...

We roll forward 12x P/E based valuation to Jun-22E and maintain BUY with an increased target price of Rs 322/sh. The key risks to our call: (1) adverse currency/commodity movement, (2) further delay in capex recovery, (3) slowdown in government T&D spend, and (4) labour shortage. The key takeaways from KECs FY20 AR are as follows: (1) a geographically well-diversified order book and robust pipeline; International T&D; (SAARC/MENA, ex-SAE) and Civil & Railways would continue to drive growth in FY21E; (2) moderate profitability, dipped in FY20; (3) incremental borrowing cost (current interest rate <7%) has come down (FY20 finance cost at 2.8%; -20 bps YoY); ~55% debt is in forex; (4) sustained increase in WC intensity has led to lower CFO/EBITDA over past two years, but NWC is stable. Our channel checks for capital goods suggest that well-diversified companies are witnessing accelerated recovery in execution as international operations remain mostly unaffected while the labour situation is improving locally. We have increased FY21/22E revenue/PAT by 8/10.3% and 22.9/17.2% respectively.
