Reliance Securities on Majesco Limited The company reported strong 3QFY18 results, with revenue rising 4.7% QoQ in USD terms, led by strong order book growth seen in FY18 YTD; cloud revenue rose 5.1% QoQ, aided by investments made, while License revenue grew by a massive 127% QoQ led by new deal wins. Good revenue growth drove a 345bps QoQ rise in EBITDA margin to 4.5%. Industry fundamentals and the key IBM partnership will enable Majesco to boost revenue growth going forward. Cloud offering - ‘Trump Card’: 60-70% of the deal pipeline in the past few months has been for cloud services. Of the addressable market of US$25bn for Majesco, around US$15-16bn relates to the L&A market, while US$9.25bn relates to the US P&C market. We currently have a target price of Rs 730 on the stock.
IPO WATCH Bandhan Bank Limited - Subscribe Issue Opens: 15-Mar-18, Issue Closes: 19-Mar-18, Price Band: Rs370-375 Bandhan Bank was able to ride the recent MFI crisis smoothly unlike NBFC-MFIs. So in the current form, it is a robust and resilient micro loan financier with great growth prospects. The bank would likely be able to sustain RoA and RoE near the 4% and 25% mark respectively. We believe long term investors would find post-money valuation at 4.8x P/BV reasonably attractive. A comparable benchmark for valuation would be the recent IndusInd Bank-Bharat Fin transaction wherein the former valued the latter at ~5.2x FY18 P/BV. (Source: IIFL Report)

Emkay Global on HEG We recently met the HEG Ltd management to understand the recent developments in the Graphite Electrode (GE) industry and to gain insights into the company. We foresee further scope for improvement. HEG's debt has dropped to Rs2bn, which is likely to be NIL in Q4FY18 itself. The company has been evaluating capacity expansion by 20ktpa depending on Needle Coke availability. Growth and diversification are also options for cash usage. Technology deterrence, physical set-up barrier and limited Needle Coke supply will restrict any new capacity addition at least for next 2-3 years. Therefore, we believe both offtake and realization will continue to be robust and sustainable for the next few years.
