TEAM delivered an in line performance in 4QFY21, with total revenue increasing 5% QoQ. Revenue growth was led by the General Staffing business (+5.5% QoQ) – general staffing and NETAP trainee headcount increased by 16k (+8% QoQ). Margin in 4QFY21 were stable, despite an impressive improvement in FTE productivity (352 v/s 334 in 2Q), led by continued customer discounts. It reported an adjusted PAT of INR268m, implying a PAT margin (in line) of 2%. TEAM remains optimistic about a recovery in long term growth. We expect the revenue impact in 1QFY22E, on account of the second COVID wave induced lockdowns, to be much more manageable than FY21. We expect a quicker recovery in the General Staffing business and expect 24% revenue CAGR in this segment over FY21-23E.

Outlook

We marginally reduce our FY22E estimate by 2% to factor in revenue impact from the ongoing lockdown. Our TP of INR4,000/share implies 41x FY23E EPS. Reiterate Buy.
