Investment Rationale
The brokerage expects L&T to witness core E&C revenue/EBITDA/adjusted PAT CAGR of 16%/14%/17% over FY21-23E. It estimates largely account for commodity price inflation risk. The consolidated revenue/EBITDA/adjusted PAT CAGR estimate stands at 16%/20%/29% over FY21-23E, helped by L&T Finance Holdings and lower losses in Hyderabad Metro. Maintain Buy with TP of INR1,625 per share on account of: a) core business target P/E multiple of 20x v/s longterm average of 22x, and b) contribution from four listed subsidiaries, after applying a 20% holding company discount. Adjusted for valuation of subsidiaries, L&T trades at FY22E/FY23E P/E of 19.7x/17.6x, providing ample valuation comfort. Should the stock move to its long-term average multiple of 22x, our target price would stand at INR1,725 per share, assuming no change in the valuation of its subsidiaries.
