Investment Rationale
The company reported a subdued Q4FY20 performance. However, the brokerage expects Accelya to witness improved revenues on a QoQ basis based on a gradual opening up of economies and improved volumes in June 2020 vs. April & May 2020. Further, it expects a healthy recovery in the airline sector coupled with cross selling opportunities from Fairlogix to drive FY22E revenues (up 19% YoY). In addition, it expects margins to witness a healthy improvement in FY22E based on cost rationalisation and improvement in revenues. As a result, it has revised EPS estimates upwards from | 38 and 53 in FY21E & FY22E to | 45 and | 69 in FY21E & FY22E, respectively. Hence, it has revised target price upwards to | 1200/ share (17x FY22E EPS, 3.5x FY22E sales) and upgrade the stock from REDUCE to BUY recommendation.
