Sharekhan’s research report on Persistent Systems
Persistent Systems announced the acquisition of Google Cloud premium partner MediaAgility for $71.7 million. The transaction is valued at 2.8x EV/revenue on CY2021 basis. The acquisition will accelerate and deepen Google Cloud partnership, scale new offerings, expand the company’s client footprint and give it access to talent pool. This transaction will help PSL to scale-up its Google Cloud practice going ahead. Though the acquisition would be EBITDA-margin neutral, intangible amortisation expenses would affect EBIT margins by 45-50 bps in FY2023. Synergies are expected do gradually reduce margin dilution.
We retain a Buy on PSL with an unchanged PT of Rs. 5,550, given building more growth avenues via tuck-in acquisitions, robust execution and broad-based demand.
