Hyderabad Metro win to boost growth - Buy

Engineering and construction company Larsen & Toubro (L&T),

has won the Rs 12,132-crore Hyderabad Metro Rail Project. The

financial closure for the project, which is expected to be

completed in about four years, will be achieved in six months.

This project will be executed on a design, build, finance, operate

and transfer (DBFOT) basis.

As per reports L&T had asked for Rs 1,458-crore viability gap

funding (VGF). The central and state governments together are

willing to provide Rs 4,853 crore VGF (40% of the total cost).

Other than the ticket fare, the project will provide the company

real estate construction rights over 18.5 million sq ft.

Medium term boost: In the medium term, the engineering giant is

expected to get a major boost from the metro project win. The

company is set to garner some other gains other than the

immediate addition to the order backlog. The Rs 12,132-crore

project adds almost 10% to L&T's existing order book of Rs 1 lakh

crore. This business is expected to be a major driver for the

company in the coming years.

Hyderabad metro – largest rail project in India: The Hyderabad

metro is the biggest metro project in India with a total cost of Rs

120bn, proposed route network of 72km and 66 stations. Media

reports suggest that ~40% of land acquisition is remaining (which

can have an impact on progress of the project).

L&T's focus on rail business pays off: L&T has beefed up its

expertise in the railways segment over the past few years. This

includes attracting talent from the Indian railways, taking up the

Rs 13.6bn Mumbai monorail project (with Scomi Engineering) and

a Rs 3bn contract from Chennai Metro, as well as acquiring ~15%

stake in Kalindi Rail Nirman (engaged in signalling, track laying

work). We expect L&T to continue to gain from emerging

opportunities in railways. Additionally, with Bengaluru,

Ahmedabad and Kochi also evaluating metro projects, the metro

rail business holds significant opportunity for the company. As per

reports the total value of these projects adds up to Rs 38,000

crore.
