We are upbeat on the stock given its first-mover advantage, strong distribution network and potential in cable dark areas for Phase 3 &4. We expect revenue & EBITDA to grow at a CAGR of 11% and 15% respectively over FY16-18E. We expect overall EBITDA margin would expand to 36.2% by FY18E from 33.5% in FY16.
