Stellar numbers by Accenture and what it means for Indian IT

Stellar numbers by Accenture
by 5paisa Research Team 24/09/2021

Accenture has a financial accounts reporting year-end in August and has just reported its fourth quarter and full year ended August 2021 i.e. for the Sep-20 to Aug-21 period. The company is predominantly into IT services and consulting.

The company is domiciled in Ireland, but being one of the largest IT services and consulting companies in the world, Accenture sets the tone for other major IT services companies. Nearly one-third of its global manpower is located in India.

For the fourth quarter ended August 2021, Accenture reported 24% growth in top line revenues on YoY basis at $13.40 billion. The company reported 11% growth in diluted EPS at $2.20 for the quarter.

The operating margins for Accenture in Q4 stood at 14.6%, an expansion of 30 bps on a YoY basis. Accenture reported operating cash flows of $2.4 billion and free cash flows (FCF) of $2.2 billion. During the quarter, the company also reported new bookings of $15 billion.

For the full year, Accenture reported revenues up 14% at $50.5 billion while diluted EPS was up 165 at $9.16 per share. For the full year, the new bookings stood at $59.8 billion while the operating margins expanded by 40 bps to 15.1% for the fiscal year ended Aug-21.

Accenture reported 29% growth in consulting revenues for the fourth quarter at $7.31 billion while the outsourcing revenues were up 19% at $6.11 billion. The profit growth in both the segments was largely driven by higher revenues and better operating metrics.

The global benchmarks for Indian IT service companies like TCS, Infosys, Wipro and HCL Tech have been names like Accenture and Cognizant. The solid results signify that corporate IT spending continues to be robust, albeit still strong in the digital arena. It gives optimism that the Indian IT sector can actually better its guidance for the full year.

Bharti Airtel Rights Issue to Open on 05th October

Bharti Airtel Rights Issue
by 5paisa Research Team 24/09/2021

Bharti airtel has just announced that its proposed Rs.21,000 crore rights issue will be open from 05-Oct to 21-Oct. The rights shares are being issued in the ratio of 1 right share for every 14 shared held i.e. in the ratio of 1:14. The record date for the rights eligibility determination has been fixed as 28-Sep. That means, to be eligible for the rights, investors must have purchased the shares latest by 24-Sep as the stock will go ex-rights from 27-Sep.

The rights shares price has been fixed at Rs.535 per share, which represents a 27.98% discount to the closing price of 24-Sep at Rs.742.90. Normally, companies tend to price the rights at a steep discount to incentivize the existing shareholders to apply for the rights issue. This is the second largest rights issue by an Indian company after the Rs.53,000 crore rights by Reliance Industries last year. In the Bharti rights, 25% is payable on application.

The rights entitlements (RE) will get credited to the demat accounts of eligible shareholders by 04-Oct so that the RE is available to the shareholders at the time of the rights opening. Investors have two choices. They can either use the REs to apply for the rights shares in the proportion eligible. Alternatively, they can just renounce the rights by selling the RE in the market as it will be traded. The RE is expected to list at a premium of 50-60%.

While 25% of the subscription amount will be payable by the rights subscribers on application, the balance will have to be paid in two tranches, which will be intimated to the shareholders separately. Rights represent an expansion of capital base so it is EPS dilutive. Hence the shareholders must either exercise the rights or renounce the rights by selling the RE. Letting the rights expire results in loss for the shareholders.

The rights entitlements will be traded on the stock exchange with an RE suffix and will be permitted to trade between 05-Oct and 18-Oct, during which period, traders choose to exercise or renounce the RE.

Invesco wants EGM to Replace Punit Goenka from the Post of MD & CEO

26/09/2021

The Zee Entertainment story appeared to have a happy ending last week after the merger announcement with Sony Pictures. The merger will give the combine a 27% market share of the Indian entertainment and sports market with a total of 75 plus channels.

However, the rift between the current management and its largest shareholder, Invesco, is far from over. That is, if you go by the latest letter written by Invesco to Zee.

The letter has called for an urgent EGM (extraordinary general meeting) of shareholders to decide on the removal of Punit Goenka from the post of MD and CEO of Zee. Invesco wants the EGM to be held before the conclusion of the Zee-Sony merger.

According to Invesco, the decision on an important aspect like merger should have been taken ahead of the merger announcement, which was not done.

In fact, Invesco has specifically pointed to the merger as a case of poor corporate governance. Invesco expected to be taken into confidence before announcing the merger. It felt structural management changes should have preceded the merger announcement.

When Invesco first wrote the letter to Zee Entertainment on 11th September, it had called for removal of non-independent directors and inducting 6 directors recommended by Invesco.

In the merged entity, Sony nominates majority of directors. For Invesco, the best way to prevent this happening is to insist on the EGM to vote on the proposal and the constitution of the board. Then Invesco wants the reconstituted board to consider the merger afresh.

Invesco had called for the removal of Punit Goenka and 3 other directors from the board. Invesco was of the view that with just 3.44% stake in the combined entity, the former promoter family was exercising influence disproportionate to the quantum of holdings.

Post-merger, Subhash Chandra's stake in the combine goes up to 4%, thanks to 2% non-compete payment to Zee promoters. The promoter family also has the leeway to enhance this stake from 4% to 20%. That is precisely what Invesco wants to avoid.

SEBI to Introduce Swing Pricing Mechanism for Debt Funds

26/09/2021

In a move that was long awaited, SEBI rolled out swing pricing in the case of debt funds. The detailed process flow would be finalized by AMFI in consultation with the various asset management companies and placed for approval by SEBI. To understand the swing price mechanism, it is essential to understand how volatility will impact the NAVs of debt mutual funds and how it puts small retail investors at a disadvantage.

The new swing pricing framework will be officially effective from March 2022. To begin with, the facility of swing pricing would only be allowed in the event of large redemptions. In such cases, since the redemption is done at the previous day’s price the HNIs try and exit at an attractive NAV. This puts an additional burden on the existing unit holders as, quite often, the fund may have to sell less-liquid bonds at sub-market prices.

The whole purpose of Swing Pricing is to ensure that long term investors are not adversely impacted during big ticket redemptions. Normally, long term investment is recommended as the ideal strategy to investors in equity and debt funds. However, it has been observed that in the event of heavy redemptions the long term investors are the worst hit. Swing pricing will overcome this issue, but how will swing pricing work?

Here is how swing pricing works. For example, on the day of huge redemptions, some HNI investors may try and exit at the previous day's NAV. In the swing pricing mechanism, the exit NAV for the selling investor will be adjusted lower to reflect this loss so that the long term investors are not penalized. The idea is to avoid additional erosion for existing investors. If there is a huge cost in terms of liquidity, then outgoing investors bear the cost.

Swing pricing formula will only be applicable in the case of market dislocation. To begin with, the swing pricing mechanism will be introduced for all debt funds except money market funds, gilt funds and 10-year government security funds. SEBI will decide on what amounts to market dislocation while the AMFI will set the limits for triggering swing pricing.
