Emkay Global Financial’s research report on HCL Tech

HCLT delivered better-than-expected operating performance in Q2. The demand environment continues to be healthy and fairly broad-based. Management remains confident about the near-to-medium term growth outlook on the back of strong deal intake and deal pipeline. HCLT has increased its revenue growth guidance to 13.5- 14.5% CC (earlier, 12-14%) for FY23, implying 2.6-3.8% CQGR in H2, on the back of continued traction in the services business, product business seasonality, healthy deal intake (USD2.38bn in Q2FY23) and strong momentum in Cloud, Digital & Engineering services. Management has revised EBITM guidance to 18-19% for FY23 (earlier, 18- 20%), and the strong recovery in Q2 grants it confidence on delivering within the guided range. We raise our earnings by 0.9% to 2.5% for FY23E-25E, factoring-in the Q2 performance.


We maintain BUY, with a TP of Rs1,070/share at 17x Sep-24E EPS (earlier, Rs1,060), considering reasonable valuations and the >4% dividend yield.
