Voltamp Transformers (VAMP) reported a strong quarterly performance with revenue growth of 36.3% YoY and margin expansion of 559bps YoY to 17.2%, owing to gross margin expansion and lower employee cost. Order inflow came in at Rs3.4bn in Q4FY22 down ~14% YoY, owing to customer reluctance in placing orders amid higher commodity costs. FY22 order inflow came in highest ever at Rs13.5bn, translating to Order book of Rs6bn (down 7% YoY). Enquiry pipeline remains healthy thereby providing good order inflow visibility in medium term. However, higher commodity price, supply chain disruptions and overall inflationary environment is likely to defer corporate capex decisions in near term. Sectors such as Sugar, Ethanol, Datacenter, Wind, Solar, Chemical, Steel, Cement and Telecom to be main growth drivers going forward. Considering current challenging environment, management has reworked its short term strategy with focus on short cycle executable orders, with assured payments terms. However, competition intensity has increased, thereby impacting pricing, which will likely impact volumes in near term.
