Satyam: Positive numbers

Aug 13, 2001

Satyam has declared its consolidated results for 1QFY02. The revenues for the quarter increased by 2% compared to 4QFY01 (revenues for Satyam alone has shown a growth of 6.6%). The contribution of Satyam Computers in 1QFY02 to the revenue was 89% compared to 85% in 4QFY01. However, the highlight of the performance was that the company posted operational profits of Rs 135 m. Thus, addressing the concern that has been haunting the company’s valuations. The operational profits are due to the company’s stock compensation amortization figure declining by 44% sequentially. According, to the US GAAP, the difference between the fair value of the stocks and the discount at which they have been offered to employees, as a part of stock compensation expenses has to be amortized.

(Rs m) 4QFY01 1QFY02 Change FY00 FY01 Change

3.1US$ = 46.5 Rs

Another positive in the result was the sequential decline of 16% in losses from subsidiaries. This was inspite of the fact that the revenues from subsidiaries declined sequentially by 21%. However, the operating margins are still very low. Excluding stock compensation amortization and goodwill amortization the operating margins come to around 7%. This is due to the Rs 545 m losses that the company has incurred on account of its subsidiaries and joint venutures.

Regarding the subsidiaries, the management has stuck to its grounds that Satyam Infoway and VisonCompass will break even by 4QFY02. And the company is not planning any further investments in VisonCompass if the subsidiary does not break even by FY02.

At the current market price of Rs 155 Satyam is trading at a P/E multiple of 28 times its 1QFY02 earnings on a consolidated basis. The earnings multiple that Satyam enjoys in amongst the best in the software sector. As the earnings from the subsidiaries improve, the company’s valuations hold the stocks might see a further upside.
