Anand Rathi’s research report on Sonata Software
Sonata delivered $53.4m IT Services Q3 revenue, up 5.5% q/q (organic est.), 21% y/y, accelerating from Q2. Net hiring was 175, utilisation went up to 90% on supply crunch. Q3 Services revenue was driven by demand in the CPG/Retail and OPD/ISV verticals, Sonata’s strongholds. The Domestic business ($198m, up 32% y/y) continues to shine. IT Services margins were flattish q/q, adj. for forex, and after absorbing Q3 wage rises.
We, however, trim FY22e/23e profit ~5%/4%, easing expectations of margin expansion and slower recovery in Travel. We revise our target to Rs.1,050 (from Rs.1,070), 21x FY24 EPS.
