Reliance Securities on KNR Constructions (KNRC) We maintain our positive view on KNRC mainly owing to healthy order book, strong balance sheet (0.1x net D/E) and sound execution credentials. We expect KNRC’s revenue and PAT to register 19% and 17% CAGR, respectively through FY17-FY20E on the back of decent order book, healthy margin and expected healthy order inflow in coming months. Valuing KNRC’s standalone business at Rs345 based on 20x FY20E earnings and Kerala & Bihar BOT at Rs15 (at 1x P/ BV), we reiterate our BUY recommendation on the stock with a revised SOTP-based Target Price of Rs360
