Valuation and view
Over the years, HGS has been capitalising on its strong clientele base, technical expertise and successful acquisitions in order to strengthen its balance sheet and increase its revenues. Given its pure play BPO services and its market standing, we believe that the company is in a favourable position to further leverage on its expanding capacities in the Healthcare and the telecom segments. We expect HGS’ net profit to grow at a CAGR of ~11% during FY14-FY16E and believe that it will continue to deliver strong return ratios as well.
At the current market price (CMP) of Rs555.5, the stock trades at a P/E of 37.5x FY16E and 33x FY17E. We recommend ‘BUY’ with a target price of Rs689.0, which implies a potential upside of ~24% to the CMP from a long term perspective.
