Pentafour Software: Different Views

Jul 16, 1999

Pentafour Software & Exports Limited has posted sales of Rs 1.4 bn (YoY growth of 51%) and a net profit of Rs 343.8 mn (YoY growth of 63%) for the quarter ended June 30th 1999. The multimedia segment accounted for 56% of the turnover. Pentafour is among the largest software companies in India. The company has commercial associations with IBM (for mainframe computing), Apple (for graphics), Silicon Graphics (for animation and digital imaging), Kodak (visual effects) and Price Waterhouse Coopers (for insurance). Its operations consist of on-site consultancy, training, projects and product development.

Though the company's YoY performance appears to be spectacular, the picture is quite different on comparison with the previous quarter ended 31st March 1999. A QoQ comparison reveals that the company has recorded a fall in sales (domestic and overseas), profits and profit margins. The fall in margins has been attributed to the increasing ad spend and the heavy expenditure incurred in setting up the offshore multimedia studio in Hollywood.

Market View:
Pentafour operates in the high margin multimedia business, in which there is lower competition. Moreover, the company has strong relationships with global media companies giving it a competitive advantage over other players. Consequently, the stock has been rated as a 'BUY'.
