More than 450% Gains for Tejas Networks in the Past Year. What Next?

Aug 18, 2021

Shares of telecom equipment maker Tejas Networks are in focus of late, falling as much as 12% in the past two trading sessions.

This comes as the company has a multi-year contract to build Afghanistan's high-capacity national optical transport network.

In the ongoing Afghanistan-Taliban crisis the deal might get jeopardised.

On 15 August, the Taliban captured Kabul, almost 20 years after the US launched its global war on terror. The city fell to the Islamist insurgents without even a fight as Afghan President Ashraf Ghani fled the country.

Despite the recent fall in Tejas Networks' shares, they are significantly up on a year to date (YTD) basis.

So what has aided the stock?

Factors aiding the stock

Tejas Networks has been on an uptrend after Tata Sons' subsidiary Panatone Finvest picked up an 8% stake as part of the Tata group's plan to acquire a controlling stake in the domestic telecom equipment maker.

This stake was picked for over Rs 1.9 bn through an open market transaction, on 3 August. The shares were bought from Samena Spectrum Co, at an average price of Rs 258 a share.

Tejas Networks had informed the BSE that Panatone and some other companies of the Tata group would acquire up to 40.3 m worth equity shares, representing 26% of the emerging voting capital in accordance with market regulator takeover regulations.

The company's CEO Sanjay Nayak said this association with Tata group will accelerate the realisation of this vision and enable it to address the large market opportunity.

The deal with Tata Sons comes as a great positive as recently, Tata Sons entered into a 5G deal with Bharti Airtel. Under the deal, Airtel will pilot and deploy the Tata Group's locally developed solutions as part of the telecom operator's 5G roll out plans for India.

There's also positive news on the rating front. Rating agency ICRA has placed Tejas Networks ratings on watch with positive implications.

Given the huge opportunities in 5G space, the company is set to benefit.

Tejas Networks has a presence in global markets and has several competitive products and expects to leverage them in the 5G market.

Since the announcement of this deal, shares of the stock has seen a spike, as this was deal quite important. The company's stock price has almost doubled since this deal was announced in January 2021.

In January 2021, Tejas Networks had announced that it had signed a multi-year contract with Asia Consultancy Group (ACG), a leading independent private company providing telecommunications infrastructure, managed and engineering services across Afghanistan.
