Larsen and Toubro reported strong growth in September quarter led by strong growth across all businesses except Financial Services. Company’s focus continues to be on efficient execution of its large order book, working capital reduction, cost optimization through use of digital technologies aimed at operational efficiencies. The consolidated order book at Rs 330,541 crore (2.4x FY21 revenues) provides healthy growth visibility for the company. Recently launched Gati Shakti plan would fast-track project implementation, under the National Infrastructure Pipeline, which, together with National Monetisation Plan, would keep government investment in infrastructure high. L&T’s current order backlog has 60-65% price variation contract which should help mitigate the impact of inflationary cost prices. Also, domestic recovery is set to accelerate due to near normal monsoon along with upcoming festive season. At the CMP of Rs. 1839, the company is trading at PE multiple of 29.50x.  Valuing the company at 19.4x FY23E EPS, we recommend buy on Larsen and Toubro at CMP of Rs. 1839 for the Target Price of Rs.2130.
