Reliance Communications (Q2 FY14)

India Infoline News Service | Mumbai |

 Company reorganized its financial reporting structure in to two geographical units namely India and Global operations; India operations further divided in to voice (wireless + fixed line), non voice and others (DTH and data centres)

CMP Rs132, Target Rs115, Downside 13.0%
  • Rcom Q2 revenue growth of 0.9% qoq was lower than our expectation as we had built in partial revenue inflow from fibre optic deal with Reliance Jio

  • Company reorganized its financial reporting structure in to two geographical units namely India and Global operations; India operations further divided in to voice (wireless + fixed line), non voice and others (DTH and data centres)

  • Revenue per min under the new reporting structure came in at 43.4p, up 3.1% qoq, and is not comparable to our estimates while total MOUs declined 4.5% qoq to 101.5bn mins on a like-to-like basis; data traffic volumes grew ~21% qoq

  • EBIDTA margin at 34.6% beat our estimate on lower network opex and SG&A while PAT of Rs6.7bn was boosted by write back of Rs4.4bn for business restructuring during the quarter

  • We do not foresee any significant improvement in core operating metrics while current price adequately factors in any positives from potential asset monetization and deleveraging; we rework our FY14/15 earnings estimates but retain Sell with revised 9-12mth target of Rs115 (earlier Rs110).
