Investment Rationale

KEC International (KEC) has demonstrated strong EPS growth of 32% (FY15-19) on improving EBITDA margins; however, the Street has lately been concerned about KEC’s flattish prospects in domestic power transmission & distribution and the recent rise in its working capital levels, said Nomura. The firm expects revenue growth to be driven by the Railways and revival in global T&D over FY20-22.
