JM Financial’s research report on HCL Technologies

Our  in – depth  analysis of the  profitability curves  of the IP partnerships that HCL has invested  in  over the last 6 quarters  indicate s that  while their revenue impact could be low ( c . 3 % over  FY18 – 20), their superior profitability  provides HCL with an  in cremental margin lever (up to  c . 50 bps  EBIT margin leverage in  FY19 – 20 ). We believe t h e market has ignored this given a limited understanding of the economics of these partnerships. We see value in the stock after the c. 6% correction since 2QFY18 results, ostensibly on a weak near – term outlook for the infrastructure services (IMS) business.  We believe the slowdown in IMS is transient and at 12. 6 x FY19F EPS (9 % discount to its 3 – year me dian PER), we find the risk – reward attractive.  We upgrade to BUY; our revised INR 1,030 (INR 980 earlier) PT implies a 20 % upside.
