HDFC Securities Report

The key takeaways from KEC International Ltd.’s FY20 annual report are as follows:

1) a geographically well-diversified order book and robust pipeline; International transmission and distribution (SAARC/Middle East and North Africa, ex-SAE Towers) and Civil and Railways would continue to drive growth in FY21E.

2) moderate profitability, dipped in FY20.

3) incremental borrowing cost (current interest rate less than 7%) has come down (FY20 finance cost at 2.8%; -20 basis points YoY); approximately 55% debt is in forex.

4) sustained increase in wheeling charges intensity has led to lower cash flow from operations/Ebitda over past two years, but net working capital is stable.

Our channel checks for capital goods suggest that well-diversified companies are witnessing accelerated recovery in execution as international operations remain mostly unaffected while the labour situation is improving locally.
