Bharti Airtel surges after announcing tariff rate hike

Bharti Airtel surges after announcing tariff rate hike
by 5paisa Research Team 22/11/2021

The revised tariffs shall enable the company to provide a reasonable return on capital, and enable it to procure investments required in networks and spectrum.

Bharti Airtel Ltd, an Indian multinational telecom service provider, announced a revision in its prepaid tariffs today. The revised tariffs, which shall come into effect from 26 November, would provide customers with additional benefits, albeit with a price increase.

While providing an explanation for this increase, the company said that it has always maintained its stance that the mobile Average Revenue Per User (ARPU) needs to be at Rs 200 and ultimately at Rs 300. The reason is that at this ARPU, the company can generate a reasonable return on capital, and subsequently lead to a financially healthy business model.

Moreover, the company believes that this level of ARPU will enable the substantial investments required in networks and spectrum. Most importantly, it will provide the company with the elbow room to roll out 5G in India.

Earlier this month, the company had announced a collaboration with Oracle to cater to the rising demand for cloud services in India. As a part of this collaboration, Airtel announced to offer Oracle Cloud solution to its customers.

Let’s take a look at the company’s performance in Q2FY22:

In the recent quarter Q2FY22, on a consolidated basis, Bharti Airtel’s net revenue went up by 13% YoY to Rs 28,326.4 crore. The PBIDT (ex OI) grew 24.76% YoY to Rs 13,810.5 crore, while its corresponding margin expanded by 458 bps to 48.75%. The net profit came in at Rs 1399.3 crore, as against a net loss of Rs 367.6 crore in the corresponding quarter last year. The PAT margin during the quarter stood at 4.94%. 

Reacting to the revised tariffs announcement, at 1.16 pm, the share price of Bharti Airtel Ltd stood at Rs 735.65, which was an increase of 3% from the previous week’s closing price of Rs 714.2 on BSE.

Manish Chokhani – An expert who sees young India driving the growth

Manish Chokhani – An expert who sees young India driving the growth
by 5paisa Research Team 22/11/2021

Chokhani is one of India’s most respected financial advisors.

Manish Chokhani was the CEO of Enam Securities, India’s leading investment bank that was the trusted “house banker” to several leading corporates. In 2011 he led the merger of Enam Securities with Axis Bank to create Axis Capital, which continues to lead the league tables in India. He has also helped to devise and implement the India investment strategies of several funds including the India Capital Fund, ZA Capital Fund and TPG Growth India (as Chairman).  

Chokhani is currently a Senior Advisor to TPG Capital. He also serves on the boards of the publicly listed Zee Entertainment, Westlife Developers (McDonald's) and Shoppers Stop as well as on the Governing body of Flame University. He is one of the youngest MBAs to have graduated from the London Business School and a Chartered Accountant.

A seasoned finance professional, Chokhani saw a travesty in March 2020 meltdown. He was encouraging investors to grab the A-listers, at discounted prices. Chokhani maintained that trustworthy and good companies would stand to gain as the economic cycle recovers. And as foreseen by him and many other market pundits, the economic cycle did pick up, in a way that defied all expectations and assumptions. And today look at the recent corrections.

Words of wisdom from the expert Manish Chokhani?

He feels that India is in unprecedented times where drivers for growth are coming from all corners - the new age young retail investor’s enthusiastic participation, the disinvestment by the Government and the Birth of Unicorns (in the likes of NYKAA, PAYTM, ZOMATO), and the traction in the corporates. He is optimistic about India’s Growth story going forward. According to him, the markets have paused for a breath and would continue their onward journey to a full economic cycle. Multibaggers are there to stay and there to evolve.
