Rolta: Steady performance

May 4, 2001

Rolta has for 1QFY02 clocked a QoQ growth (compared to 4QFY01) of 5% in revenues. The growth in net profit is 18%. Considering Rolta's size the growth in topline is slightly low compared to the figures posted by others in the IT industry. However, Rolta's business model is slightly different from the run of the mill software companies as its core areas include CAD/CAM industry and ISP services.

(Rs m) 4QFY01 1QFY02 Change
Sales 765 800 4.6%
Other Income 8 2 -76.3%
Expenditure 261 372 42.6%
Operating Profit (EBDIT) 504 428 -15.0%
Operating Profit Margin (%) 65.9% 53.5%
Interest 44 49 10.4%
Depreciation 182 74 -59.1%
Profit before Tax 286 307 7.4%
Tax 25 -
Profit after Tax/(Loss) 261 307 17.6%
Net profit margin (%) 34.1% 38.4% 12.4%
Diluted number of shares 63.7 63.7
Diluted Earnings per share* 16.4 19.3 17.7%
P/E (X) 3.8

On a YoY basis the company has clocked a revenue growth of 36% and the rise in net profits is 44%.

The operating margins for the company are one of the best in the industry at 53.5%. However this figure has come down from an astronomical 65.9% in 4QFY01.

The high operating margins could be due to the fact that Rolta's staff costs are just 4% of the revenues, which could be perhaps the lowest in the IT industry.

At the current market price of Rs 74, the stock is trading at a P/E multiple of 3.8 times its 1QFY01 annualised earnings.
