IPO WATCH: HAL   Reco: Subscribe   Revenue CAGR of 5.5% over FY14-17 was led by robust growth of 13% CAGR in services business. During this period, share of service revenues jumped from 23% to 32%. With the upgrade of major fleets of the Indian Defence forces on the anvil, we believe this segment would continue to witness robust growth going forward. Growth would also be led by the execution of LCA (Tejas), Sukhoi, LCH, UAV and development of indigenous spares and engines. Orderbook of Rs.684bn provides strong revenue visibility for the company over the next five years.   We believe the stock is attractively priced given strong earnings potential and humungous domestic aero defence opportunities.   (Source: IIFL)
