Prabhudas Lilladher’s research report on Larsen and Toubro Infotech
We attended LTI’s analyst day held on 9th Dec 2021. LTI’s senior management outlined their strategy to sustain track record of consistent revenue growth and be in leader’s growth quadrant by -1) scaling up tech capabilities (data, cloud and digital), 2) mining existing strategic clients, 3) investing in new high potential verticals and markets, and 4) building sales and marketing teams. Management mentioned that demand continues to be strong across all verticals, markets and service lines. New large deal pipeline is at $2.07 Bn, 9% YoY growth (vs 60% YoY last year) indicates demand shifting towards medium-sized short cycle deals driven by discretionary spends as clients are using technology for revenue maximization and faster go-to-market.
