What has driven performance in 3QFY12?
  • IVRCL's top line declined 15.2% YoY during 3QFY12. Poor execution amidst the ongoing environmental issues impacted top-line growth.

  • Operating profits declined 32.5% YoY due to poor performance at the top-line level and rising input cost. The overall expenditure of the company increased from 90.1% (as a percentage of sales) in 3QFY11 to 92.1% in 3QFY12.

  • The net profits of the company declined 84.0% YoY due to muted performance at the operating level and increase in interest and depreciation expenses during the quarter. However, the tax rate declined from 32.3% in 3QFY11 to 0.9% in 3QFY12 due to deferred tax adjustments.

What to expect?
Execution issues continue to plague the top-line growth of IVRCL. Environmental and legal issues have impacted the project execution cycle of the company while the bottom line is impacted by rising interest (increase in debt) and depreciation expenses. However, the company has a healthy order book to the tune of Rs 250 bn which provides strong revenue visibility into the future. Nonetheless, considering the current execution issues and higher interest rate environment we maintain our "Hold" view on the stock.
