Emkay Global Financial has given Buy recommendation for Tata Consultancy Services with a target price of Rs. 4150 in its research report issued on Jan 13, 2022

Emkay Global Financial’s report on Tata Consultancy Services

Q3FY22 revenue exceeded our expectation, while EBITM missed the estimate. Revenue grew 3.9%/15.4% QoQ/YoY in CC terms. EBITM declined by ~60bps QoQ to 25%, due to an increase in compensation costs, higher subcontracting expenses and discretionary non-manpower costs. Revenue growth was broad-based, and all verticals posted double-digit CC growth YoY. Growth was led by Retail & CPG (20.4% CC YoY), Manufacturing (18.3%), BFSI (17.9%), Technology & Services (17.7%) and Life Sciences & Healthcare (16.3%). All geographies, except for Asia Pacific and MEA, posted double-digit growth YoY. A strong and sustained demand environment, broad-based growth, healthy deal intake (USD23.3bn in 9MFY22), and traction in cloud, IoT and Digital engineering give management confidence to sustain a robust revenue growth trajectory.

Outlook

We tweak our FY22/23/24 EPS estimates by -1.5%/0.5%/0.2% after factoring in the Q3 performance and buyback. We maintain Buy with a TP of Rs 4,150 (Rs4,100 earlier) at 30x Dec’23E EPS, considering steady deal wins and consistent execution.
