ICICI Securities Limited’s Report Overview
Astra Microwave Ltd (AMW) reported a strong performance in Q4FY23, with its EBITDA increasing by 34% YoY to Rs343 million. The company witnessed a significant increase in the proportion of exports, accounting for 54.6% of total sales in Q4FY23 compared to 31.5% in Q3FY23. However, this led to a decline in the quarter-on-quarter EBITDA margin due to the lower-margin nature of exports.
During the quarter, AMW received new orders worth Rs1.2 billion, including Rs722 million from the defense sector. At the end of FY23, the company’s order book stood at Rs15.4 billion, equivalent to 1.9 times its revenue, which is executable over the next 12-36 months. Notably, domestic orders constitute 76% of the order book.
The board of directors has recommended a dividend of Rs1.6 per share. Looking ahead, AMW’s management reaffirmed its guidance of achieving sales execution of Rs100 billion over the next five years. The company is also focusing on transitioning from a systems/subsystems provider to a complete solutions provider. It aims to identify specific opportunities for collaboration with third parties to enhance its offerings.
Considering AMW’s solution-oriented approach and its potential to capitalize on opportunities in the domestic defense space, it is expected to achieve better margins in the medium term. Consequently, we maintain a positive outlook on AMW’s prospects and reiterate our BUY rating on the stock. Our revised target price of Rs425 (previously Rs380) is based on a discounted cash flow (DCF) valuation, implying a multiple of 23 times FY25E EPS.
