Cyient Ltd (Cyient) reported a poor set of Q1FY21 numbers. Services revenues declined 15.2% QoQ to US$112.2 million, mainly led by 22.9% QoQ decline in the aerospace & defence segment (36.5% of revenues), 10.8% QoQ decline in communication vertical (23.0% of revenues) and 13.7% QoQ decline in energy & utility verticals (11% of revenues). The services EBIT margin declined 290 bps to 6.7%. Overall consolidated EBIT margin was further lower at 5.2%, mainly led by negative margins in the DLM business. Consolidated PAT was up 8.0% QoQ to Rs. 81.4 crore, mainly due to one-time export incentive income of Rs. 51.9 crore.
Valuation & Outlook
The Q1FY21 performance was subdued. However, we expect revenues & margins to improve QoQ mainly led by increased traction in communication, utility & medical, technology & healthcare. Hence, we revise our revenues and EPS estimates upwards. Accordingly, we revise our target price upwards to Rs. 300/share. However, considering the near-term weakness in aerospace & defence coupled with the recent run up in the stock price, we remain cautious on the stock and maintain our HOLD rating.
