The stock rallied after the company reported better-than-expected June quarter (Q1FY22) results.
L&T Technology Services said in a regulatory filing that its revenue from operations increased 17 % to Rs.1518 crore in the first quarter of FY22 from Rs.1294.7 crore the previous year and as of today’s date, this is the share price of L&T Technology Services Ltd.
The company reported an 84% year-on-year (YoY) and 11.1% quarter-on-quarter (QoQ) increase in its Q1FY22 net profit at Rs.216.20 crore on Wednesday, owing largely to wider margins. Revenues increased 4.2% in dollar terms and 4.3% in constant currency (CC) terms sequentially. During the quarter, revenue from digital and cutting-edge technologies accounted for 54% of total revenue.
Despite a wage increase in Q1FY22, the EBIT margin increased 70 basis points (bps) QoQ to 17.3 %, aided by efficiency improvements, better utilization, and ongoing workforce rightsizing. Revenues are expected to increase 15-17% in FY22E, according to the company. Deal traction was strong in the third quarter, with six deals worth more than $10 million in total contract value (TCV), including two for more than $25 million.
The last four consecutive quarters of operating margin improvement, according to management, have resulted from a gradual portfolio shift toward more digital engineering, as well as operational efficiency initiatives centred on hiring, cross-skilling, productivity improvement, and cost optimization.
L&T Technology Services patent portfolio stood at 719 at the end of the first quarter, with 531 co-authored with its customers and the rest filed by the company. L&T Technology Services had 16,972 employees at the end of the first quarter.
