Investment Rationale

The company’s sales in the second quarter fell 19% from year ago levels likely due to slowerthan-expected execution pace in the large LR-SAM order, said Citigroup.

The company has won orders worth Rs 9100 crore in first half of FY20 and remains on track to meet FY20 guidance of wins worth Rs 13000-15000 crore, said Citi.
