We tweak our FY21/FY22 estimate by 0.1/-0.6% and keep the target price unchanged at Rs 1,260/sh While LT 2QFY21 revenue/EBITDA/APAT was (7)/0.4/(19)% (miss)/beat on our estimate, robust FCF generation, contained NWC, and directionally strong commentary on ordering were key positives. LT has taken impairment on key non-core assets to make them monetisation ready. Talks on Hyderabad Metro project restructuring/refinancing have been initiated, and focus is on re-investing the surplus E&A; proceeds towards high RoE growth businesses.

Recommendations and stock picks: From a near to mid-term perspective, the government would drive ordering, and private Capex/opex will be late-cycle recovery. Hence, recovery plays with high government exposure will remain in focus. In capital goods, LT is our top pick. In the mid-cap space, KPTL, KNR, PNC, HG Infra and Ahluwalia are our top picks Converging towards normalisation: Within our coverage universe, we expect operations to have normalised from Sep-20. Labour is back/exceeded pre-COVID-19 levels, which augurs well for execution. Some of the cost rationalisation measures would continue even post lifting of lockdown restrictions and shall help improve EBITDA margins. FYTD21 ordering has been robust, and momentum is expected to continue for 2HFY21E. Working capital is expected to improve over the next two quarters as GST impasse gets resolved between the Central and State Governments. High-frequency data is pointing towards economic recovery, which shall alleviate concern on the government fiscal situation. States are also gearing up to take new infrastructure projects

However, COVID-19 has posed various challenges, including the risk of funding requirements in non-core businesses such as L&T; Finance and Hyderabad Metro. the nature of use of the proceeds may be against the original expectation; however, this has more to do with COVID-19-led risks than any change in the managements intention to return excess cash to shareholders. Owing to the proceeds, L&T; is likely to maintain a strong liquidity position and does not have to depend on debt on a net basis to support core business execution. had already communicated that it may utilize part of the funds to restructure the capital structure of the Hyderabad Metro by replacing external debt.
