Key Points

Diversified industry exposure and customer stickiness
HMTPL has a diverse customer industry group with no particular vertical contributing to more than 25% of the overall revenues. More importantly, Edutech and Hitech combined account for ~42% of overall revenues and are expected to be less impacted in the current environment. The company is clubbing Travel, Media and Entertainment (17% of FY20 revenue) industries while reporting its vertical numbers in the RHP which hints at lower impact on overall business from Travel clients. Having a diversified exposure augurs well from client and industry concentration perspective. As for client contribution, the company derives a significant portion of its revenues from a small number of customers. Its number of active customers have declined from 173 in March 2018 to 157 in March 2020. This increase in revenue per customer points at steady account mining, high level of customer stickiness and superior sales productivity.
Solid promoter reputation and track record
Mr. Ashok Soota, the Executive Chairman and Director of HMTPL is an industry veteran and has experience in building/running successful IT companies/BUs. He was the Founding Chairman and Managing Director of MindTree Ltd., a company that was “Born Digital” and was able to reach ~USD400 Mn in a relatively short span of time, before him stepping down. Companies like Hexaware and Persistent which nearly had a decade head start (vs. MindTree) had only reached USD200-300 Mn at that time. HMTPL is already up to USD100 Mn mark in a short period of time. He was the vice chairman of Wipro and senior vice president of Shriram Refrigeration Industries prior to co-founding MindTree.
Recent Performance
In 1QFY21, Happiest Minds reported flat INR revenue on a YoY basis (8% decline YoY in US$ terms), with minimal exposure to the travel vertical. Margin performance was more impressive, with EBIT margin standing at 18.5%. For the full year FY21, management is looking to improve its EBITDA margin to 21-22% (18-19% EBIT). Its carried forward tax losses will get exhausted in FY21 and management has guided for an ETR of 25% from FY22.
Key Risk Factors: Geographic concentration:
United States alone contributes 77.5% of its overall revenues (FY20). Anti-outsourcing legislation, if passed, would a pose a threat owing to higher onsite ratio and /or insourcing by customers. Client concentration risk: Although not quantified, the RHP alludes to higher contribution of revenues from a small number of clients. Loss of a key client and lower quantum of repeat business from existing clients can impact the revenue and earnings growth.
