Motilal Oswal’s research report on KNR Construction

KNR Construction (KNRC) delivered 12% YoY revenue growth (10% below our estimate) with EBITDA margin at 20.7% (v/s our estimate of 20%). The order book (OB) stood at INR100b (excluding recently won projects), with OB/revenue at 3.1x. KNRC received the appointed dates in two HAM projects in Jan’22, which should support execution in FY23E and FY24E. The company is debt-free at the standalone level. It has pending receivables of INR5.9b from irrigation projects and the management expects to recover INR1.5b by end-FY22.

Outlook

We cut our FY24E revenue/EBITDA/earnings by 10%/10%/13%, respectively, to factor in weaker-than-expected execution and subdued outlook on order inflows. With an order book of INR100b, we expect KNRC to clock 20% revenue growth over FY21-24, with EBITDA margin in the 18-20% range. Maintain BUY with an SoTP-based TP of INR360, implying 17% upside.
