Key Investment Rationale

The company’s order book as on December 31,2017 was strong at Rs68,461cr (3.7xFY17sales), providing good revenue visibility. HAL also has an attractive order pipeline for Light combat aircraft (LCA) Mk1A. In December 2017, the company has received requests for proposal on nomination basis from the Ministry of Defence (MOD) for (1) the procurement of 83 LCA Mk1A aircraft (estimated cost of Rs60,000cr); and (2) the procurement of 15 LCH series production helicopters (estimated cost of Rs4,500cr). We believe materialization of these orders will lead to robust sales growth going forward.

The company is a leader in the Indian aeronautical industry and derives a substantial portion of its revenue from the Indian defence services. Being a GOI promoted entity, it is the preferred supplier for aerospace products and services. It boasts of a diversified product portfolio and indigenously designed and developed products. The company is also developing new products including the Indian Multi Role Helicopter (IMRH). It is also foraying into the civil transport aircraft segment with the civil variant of the Dornier Do-228 aircraft. The company also manufactures industrial marine gas turbines. The company typically spends ~7% of its revenue on research & development (R&D). Its R&D expenses grew at a higher (vs sales) CAGR of 11% CAGR (FY15-17).

Key Risk

HAL’s primary customer is IDS, from which the company derived 91.4%, 93.3%, of total revenue for H1FY18 and FY17 respectively. India’s defence sector still faces challenges in terms of slow decision making process. Therefore, any delay in award of orders could hamper company’s order inflows and revenues.

Conclusion

At the upper price band, the stock is valued at P/E of ~16x FY17. Given its strong growth prospects as the largest DPSU and leadership in the aeronautical industry, we recommend Subscribe from the long-term perspective.
