Punj Lloyd Ltd – The company was founded in 1988, headquartered in New Delhi, India. The company is engaged in providing integrated design, engineering procurement, construction and project management services for energy and infrastructure sector, operates in four segments: Energy, Civil and Infrastructure, Power and Renewable. Its Energy segment comprises process plants, pipeline and tankage. Its Power segment provides Thermal power plants in India, up to 660 megawatt. Civil and Infrastructure business is carried on in India and Middle East & North Africa (MENA) through Punj Lloyd Ltd., whereas Sembawang Engineers and Constructors Pte Ltd. and its subsidiary has its operations spread across the Middle East, Africa, the Caspian, Asia Pacific and South Asia. Punj Lloyd provides engineering procurement construction (EPC) services in Oil & Gas, Process, Civil Infrastructure, and Thermal Power.

Whats the News?
Punj Lloyd has bagged three orders (two international and one domestic) aggregating to Rs. 645cr. The first order is worth Rs. 323 Cr from petroleum company Occidental Mukhaizna, Oman involves EPC of a new water treatment plant. The second order for Rs. 271cr is from an Indonesian oil company Pertamina for the construction of three well head platforms and lying of offshore gas pipeline. The third contract from GAIL worth Rs. 51cr is for laying a 112km long pipeline. This is positive for the company as the order inflow for 2QFY2011 was disappointing at Rs. 1,030cr and this order further enhances the revenue visibility, taking the outstanding order book to Rs. 29,171cr (3.2x FY2011E revenue).
The stock is down (50%) over the last 12 months, which I believe has brought it to a superb valuations giving the company’s scale of operations and the opportunities that lie ahead. Against this backdrop, it is expected that the stock will outperform over the medium to long term. Hence, maintain a Buy on the stock with a Target Price of Rs. 117- Rs. 120.
The execution of the Libyan orders was delayed significantly and this has hit the earnings in the last few quarters, as the Libyan orders form 38% of the company’s order book. Work on some of these projects began during Q1FY2011 and in Q2FY2011 the company started booking some revenue related to these projects. The management expects revenue booking to gain momentum in another 6 to 9 months. It is believed that the revenue booking from the Libyan projects during the quarter is a positive sign and provides visibility of a healthy growth in the revenue from the Libyan orders after 2 to 3 quarters as these form 38% of the total order book of the company.

Valuations and outlook - 
At the current market price of Rs. 91.80, the stock is trading at 8.9x FY2012E earning per share (EPS). PLL is present in some of the high-growth sectors (infrastructure, petrochemicals etc), which are expected to receive heavy investment in the coming years. Further, the revenue visibility from the Libyan orders is a good sign and will bring cash for the company. However, the order execution for the company has been slow in recent quarters, which is a cause for concern. Though the losses on account of the Ensus project are over, there might be more cost overruns/liquidated damages in the company’s other projects. Further, the order intake has not been very robust and this could affect the revenue growth. Stock could be bought with the price target of Rs117 (11.45x FY2012 estimates), factoring in the delay in the execution of the Libyan orders. The key risks to this call are further slowdown in order execution and cost overruns/liquidated damages in the company’s projects. In Q2FY2011 PLL secured orders to the tune of Rs1,164 Cr, which takes its order book to Rs. 25,470 crore—2.5x FY2010 revenues.
