Dolat Capital Market’s research report on NCC

NCC reported revenue and APAT below estimates but EBITDA margins in line. NCC posted 9.4%/ 4.3%/ 36.3% YoY de-growth in Revenue/ EBITDA/ APAT to Rs19.2 bn/ Rs2.4 bn/ Rs703 mn due to muted execution. After adjusting Rs502 mn (Q3FY20), APAT increased 17.0% YoY to Rs703 mn. We broadly maintain our FY21E estimates. We increase our revenue and APAT estimates by 30.9%/ 29.6% and by 79.7%/ 65.1% for FY22E/ FY23E factoring 9MFY21 results and strong YTDFY21 order inflows of Rs186.8 bn (vs. earlier estimate of Rs110 bn for FY21E). NCC is likely to post -10.4%/ 52.9%/ 10.2% revenue growth in FY21E/ FY22E/ FY23E. We factor WC (% of revenue) of 59.6% (FY21E)/ 49.7% (FY22E)/ 49.9% (FY23E) vs. 52.7% (FY20). We also factor minor reduction in debt to Rs18.1 bn (FY21E) from Rs19.1 bn/ Rs19.7 bn (FY20/ 9MFY21) and thereafter rise to Rs22.1 bn (FY22E)/ Rs21.8 bn (FY23E). We expect revenue/ APAT CAGR of 14.7%/ 36.1% over FY20-23E.
