Tech Mahindra shares likely to rebound after blockbuster deal with AT&T

In comparison, its larger rivals Tata Consultancy Services and Infosys saw their stock surge 14% and 24%, respectively, this year. The S&P BSE IT …

MUMBAI (NewsRise) — Indian software exporter Tech Mahindra‘s big-ticket outsourcing deal with AT&T could breathe fresh life into the Mahindra Group company’s shares, as it potentially bulks up the sagging communications business and raises the prospects of strong revenue growth.

Mumbai-based Tech Mahindra’s shares have lost 2.4% since the beginning of 2019 after they gained 43% last year. In comparison, its larger rivals Tata Consultancy Services and Infosys saw their stock surge 14% and 24%, respectively, this year. The S&P BSE IT index added 13% during this period.

Tech Mahindra’s shares have underperformed its rivals and the BSE IT Index as its weak earnings growth in the past two quarters raised concerns among investors about a further decline in margins.

However, the new deal could help the stock recover. Last week, Tech Mahindra announced one of its largest-ever project wins that could be worth $1 billion over the next four to five years. The contract entailed migration of the U.S. telecom behemoth’s traditional operational and support software systems to cloud and drawing up its software-defined network for the next-generation cellular technology. Tech Mahindra declined to give any financial details of the deal.

The deal is likely to give a fillip to Tech Mahindra’s financial performance, which has been lackluster in the past two quarters as the company struggled with client-specific issues and declining investments from automobile and financial services businesses.

Analysts say revenue growth is crucial for Tech Mahindra to expand its margins. The announcement of AT&T deal comes “as a booster to that effect,” Motilal Oswal said in a report.

The project also underscores the strong deal momentum in the communications industry as operators prepare to modernize their infrastructure ahead of the launch of 5G mobile phone services.

Brokerage Edelweiss expects the deal to catapult Tech Mahindra’s communications revenue — which accounts for over 40% of its overall revenue — to 12% over fiscal year 2019 to 2021 from 6.5%.

“While the deal ramp-up and transition may pressure margins, the potential for a re-rating of the stock is significant too as this landmark deal would boost the company’s single-digit growth estimates currently,” it said. Edelweiss has a target price of 935 rupees on the stock.

“We see this deal as an investment that Tech Mahindra is making to get a large referenceable project to market to the global telecom universe that is at the cusp of pivoting to the 5G era,” Nirmal Bang said in a report Monday. The deal also augurs well for other Indian IT companies such as Tata Consultancy Services, Infosys, and Wipro which have substantial exposure to the communications sector and have partnerships with AT&T.

Tech Mahindra shares fell 1.3% to close at 703.70 rupees in Mumbai trading on Wednesday, while the benchmark S&P BSE Sensex gained 0.3%.

Indonesian Unicorn Bukalapak Cuts Jobs in Profitability Bid

Bukalapak was valued at $1 billion in November 2017 by CB Insights. Bukalapak is majority Indonesian-owned and was hoping to remain so, Oetomo …

(Bloomberg) — Online market place PT Bukalapak.com is cutting about 10% of its around 2,500 employees, bucking a trend among Indonesian unicorns that have been stepping up hiring this year.

Chief Strategy Officer Teddy Oetomo said in a statement Tuesday that the company would be placing greater emphasis on profitability. It’s targeting break-even or its first profit within five years.

“We have sufficient capital to achieve positive EBITDA if all the initiatives that we have put in place are going as planned,” Oetomo said. “The reason we are targeting for sustainability is because we don’t want to continue raising funds and would like to minimize dilution to existing shareholders.”

Bukalapak was valued at $1 billion in November 2017 by CB Insights.

Bukalapak is majority Indonesian-owned and was hoping to remain so, Oetomo said. The company’s backers include broadcaster PT Elang Mahkota Teknologi. It also counts Singapore’s sovereign wealth fund GIC Pte and China’s Ant Financial, the Alibaba affiliate controlled by billionaire Jack Ma, among its investors.

CH&CO increases turnover to £286m

The business also welcomed new equity partners, Equistone Partners Europe, who will support CH&CO’s growth ambitions in the foodservice sector.

Independent caterer and Royal Warrant holder, CH&CO, has reported a 19 per cent increase in annual turnover to £286 million in its annual accounts for the financial year ending 31 December 2018.

The latest results, which are in line with the company’s previous year’s projections, show a £46 million increase in turnover from 2017 to 2018 and an increase in profits to £17.2 million EBITDA, representing six per cent of turnover.

In contrast to previous years, there was no merger and acquisition activity in 2018 but the integration of the 2017 mergers with Harbour & Jones and Concerto Group was completed.

Bill Toner, Chief Executive of CH&CO, commented: “2018 was another strong year for CH&CO and all of the M&A growth of previous years was successfully bedded in.

“We introduced a simplified Group structure and undertook a complete rebranding to focus on seven core areas – workplaces, destinations, events, livery, venues, education and healthcare – and this was well-received by clients and team members alike.

“The performance of the company continues to be strong and we have a good track record of successfully growing our business through merging with like-minded companies.

Successes for CH&CO in 2019 include the merging of its Scottish business with Stirling-based Inspire Catering, and last month’s acquisition of Gather & Gather and Creativevents from Mitie. The business also welcomed new equity partners, Equistone Partners Europe, who will support CH&CO’s growth ambitions in the foodservice sector.

What’s moving markets today: September 4, 2019

Against expectations, the group’s manufacturing index, a key gauge for the industry, came in at 49.1 as the trade war hit sentiment. Any number below …

A version of this post first appeared in the newly relaunched “Before the Bell” newsletter. Subscribe here!

Those who have argued that the United States can withstand the weakness hitting global factories just received a shock: the American manufacturing sector shrank last month, according to the Institute for Supply Management. It’s the first time that’s happened since August 2016.

Against expectations, the group’s manufacturing index, a key gauge for the industry, came in at 49.1 as the trade war hit sentiment. Any number below 50 indicates a contraction.

So what happens now? Societe Generale strategist Kit Juckes points out that this is the third time that the US manufacturing ISM has dropped below 50 since the financial crisis, and the previous two events did not trigger recessions. But it’s definitely not a positive signal.

In the near term, the survey’s biggest impact has been to increase expectations for a larger interest rate cut by the Federal Reserve later this month. The odds of a 50-basis point cut are now at more than 9%, up from 0% on Tuesday, according to CME Group’s FedWatch tool.

But we’ll get a much better picture of what the Fed is working with by the end of the week. The Institute for Supply Management’s non-manufacturing index arrives Thursday. That’s followed, of course, by a blockbuster August jobs report on Friday.
