Investment Rationale
Tata Elxsi (TELX IN) delivered a strong Q4, with 7.4/30.9% QoQ/YoY growth, and closed FY22 with 34% growth. Growth was broad-based across EPD/IDV and, within EPD, across the verticals of transportation, media & communications, and healthcare. Management commentary on demand, pipeline, and hiring remains strong. Over the past two years, TELX has doubled its profit (FCF up >75%), with EBITDAM catapulting from 21% in FY20 to 31% in FY22, supported by superior delivery metrics (offshore-led and lower sub- con dependence). From here on, the brokerage expects the EPS to double over three years (revenue-led), with steady margins and ~40% RoCE. Yet, these base case assumptions seem adequately priced in and there’s a low margin of safety at 56x FY24E; the implied USD revenue growth rate over FY22-31E is ~25% CAGR at current valuation. It maintains SELL, with a TP of INR 7,050, valuing TELX at 50x FY24E EPS. TELX’ valuation premium builds in growth premium (both absolute and relative), delivery strengths, a strong balance sheet, and efficiency metrics.
