There are few key takeaways from the financials of Udayshivakumar Infra Ltd which can be enumerated as under

  1. The growth of the company has been erratic in the last 3 years, but that is normal in a cyclical business where contracts by state governments are a function of who is in power at the state level.

  2. The PAT margins have been single digits, but that is the nature of the roads business, which normally tends to have very low margins. The positive takeaway for the company is that its RONW and its asset turnover have been stable through the years, hinting at aggressive sweating of assets.

  3. Too much of regional focus may be a risky business model since the preferred contractors tend to change with the change in the government. This is more so in the case of state contracts. That is a risk for Udayshivakumar Infra Ltd

The company is a very niche infrastructure play but also high on the risk scale. The size of the operations is quite small and that makes it vulnerable to cycles. The stock is suited to an investor with a much higher risk appetite.
