Sensex Today: PL Stock Report: Nazara Technologies (NAZARA IN) – Q2FY24 Result Update – Capital allocation key to re-rating – HOLD

Jinesh Joshi – Research Analyst, Prabhudas Lilladher Pvt Ltd. views on Nazara Technologies (NAZARA IN)

Rating: HOLD | CMP: Rs820 | TP: Rs840

Q2FY24 Result Update – Capital allocation key to re-rating

Quick Pointers:

§ Post recent fund infusion, cash on books stands at Rs13.3bn (22% of market cap).

We cut our FY24E-FY26E EBITDA estimates by ~3-4%, amid persistent weakness in Kiddopia and Ad-Tech business. Despite downgrade at operating level, our FY24/25E EPS estimates have witnessed an upgrade of 14%/6% as we raise our other income assumptions and re-align our tax rate for FY24E given write back during the quarter. Nazara’s operational performance was broadly in-line with our estimate with EBITDA margin of 9.4% (PLe 8.3%) while PAT beat was driven by tax credit of Rs13mn (PLe tax outgo of Rs47mn) arising from demerging of the fantasy sports business of Halaplay into OpenPlay. Despite ongoing challenges in Ad-Tech (loss of a large client), Kiddopia (stagnant subscriber base) and Real Money Gaming (GST levy of 28% on full bet value), return of BGMI and strong traction in SportsKeeda is likely to drive Sales/EBITDA CAGR of 17%/34% over FY23-FY26E. Retain ‘HOLD’ rating on the stock with a DCF based TP of Rs840 (earlier Rs836). Post recent fund raise, Nazara has cash balance of Rs13.3bn (cash per share of Rs183 on diluted equity base) and we believe capital allocation decisions from hereon will be a key to re-rating.

Vivek Kumar of JM Financial views on Samvardhana Motherson International (MOTHERSO IN) | WIP Qtr; Growth momentum is expected to remain strong

Result Update BUY INR 130 

In 2QFY24, SAMIL reported consol. EBITDA margin of 8.0%, 90bps below JMFe. Lower automotive production in EU (owing to summer holidays) and US (labour strike) led to negative operating leverage and unfavourable mix. With the recovery in automotive volumes in 2H, we expect growth momentum to continue going ahead. Order book continues to grow with share of EVs forming ~22% of booked business (USD 77+bn). Acquisitions have started coming through and the company indicated of strong pipeline. Increase in debt is a temporary phenomenon owing to acqs. and increase in capex and is expected to normalise going ahead. We believe the company with its global presence, an expanding product portfolio and a wide customer base presents a multi-year growth opportunity. We expect revenue/EPS CAGR of 18%/48% over FY23-26E. We maintain BUY rating with a Sept’24 TP of INR 130 (18x FY25e EPS). Slowdown in global demand remains a key risk.
