Valuation and view
We forecast IWL’s top-line to grow at a CAGR of 40% during FY15-17E, on the back of aggressive capacity expansion, strong order book and large project sites. Also, EBITDA margin is expected to improve to 19.7% by FY17E on the basis of higher realizations. Moreover, it stands to be a key beneficiary of government’s thrust on improving the stature of renewable energy in India with a big market share and access to sophisticated technologies.
We expect IWL’s net profit to grow at a CAGR of ~57% during FY15-FY17E and the RoE and RoCE to improve to 32.0% and 35.0% respectively. At the current market price (CMP) of Rs. 449, the stock trades at a P/E multiple of 18.9x FY16E and 13.6x FY17E. We recommend ‘BUY’ with a target price of Rs. 544 assigning a forward P/E multiple of 16.5x, which implies a potential upside of ~21% to the CMP from 12-18 months perspective.
