Reliance Communications (Q2 FY13)

We raise our FY13 PAT estimates on lower tax rate assumption but retain Market Performer with 9-mth target of Rs54 (earlier Rs51)

CMP Rs58, Target Rs54, Downside 8.2% 
  • Q2 revenue decline of 4.4% qoq came in much below our est of -0.9% qoq led by seasonal weakness in wireless and flat global enterprise business
  • Wireless revenue decline of 2.3% qoq worse than our expectation of 1.1% qoq drop (and deeper than the adjusted 1.4% qoq drop reported by Bharti’s India & S Asia wireless business); global enterprise revenues too remained largely flat on sequential basis vs our estimate of a 2% qoq rise
  • Rev/min remained constant at 43p though seasonality meant that total MOUs declined 2.5% qoq vs our estimate of 0.5% qoq dip; expect the impact of 25% tariff hike (1.2p/sec to 1.5p/sec) taken in Q2 across GSM & CDMA pre paid segments to be visible from Q1 FY14
  • Margin fell 114bps qoq vs our forecast for a 20bps rise due to higher than estimated access charges (due to reconciliation with other operators-a one time provision) and SG&A costs; lower EBIDTA and higher interest expense (largely one time fees) led to 37% decline in PAT (vs est. -22% qoq) despite a 3x jump in other income to Rs1.7bn
  • Q2 capex at Rs4.2bn (+15% qoq, 8% of sales) led by 137% surge in global enterprise spending while wireless capex declined  48% qoq to Rs1.2bn
  • Net debt at Rs367bn (~6x annualized H1 FY13 EBIDTA) and lack of near term catalysts leaves little room for valuation re rating; we raise our FY13 PAT estimates on lower tax rate assumption but retain Market Performer with 9-mth target of Rs54 (earlier Rs51)

Another day, another high

India Infoline News Service / 09:04, Jan 22, 2015

The outlook is a flat start. The market will look to scale to new peaks though not much effort is needed for the same. HUL saw a rally and short-covering may have pulled it up further. Speculation is on that its parent will raise stake through an open offer. After the cooling in oil prices, Cairn results will be in focus.
