Buy Inox Wind; target of Rs 298: HDFC Securities. HDFC Securities' research report on Inox Wind
Inox Wind (IWL) reported yet another weak quarter as execution got impacted due to demonetisation. 200MW of WTGs were manufactured but could not be commissioned, which led to miss in estimates for the quarter. With improvement in execution, the mgmt expects 4QFY17E to be a disproportionately strong quarter.
Our estimates factor in flattish volumes of 3.5GW/1GW for the industry/IWL. Still IWL would generate annual FCF of 5bn going ahead. Given a history of volatile quarterly performance we cut our target P/E multiple to 12x (earlier 15x) to arrive at Dec-18 TP of Rs 298/sh. Reiterate BUY.
