PAT was up by 5% YoY to Rs 230mn.The Company has since commenced work on the project like JNPT and metro line2/3 and expects the execution to pick up over the course of FY17.

Highlights of the conference call:

Outlook and Valuation:


The stock is trading at 10.5x FY18E earnings. We believe that a well-funded balance sheet and strong track record will help JKIL to capitalise on huge opportunity in urban infrastructure over the next few years. We expect stock to deliver sales and PAT CAGR of 22%& 20%, respectively, over FY16-18E. We have cut our earnings by ~11% for FY18 to factor in the change in guidance due to delay seen in metro projects. We maintain Buywith Revised PT of Rs253 (Previous Rs285).
