Tata Technologies witnessed a 5 percent decline in its share price on May 6 as investors reacted unfavorably to the company’s lackluster performance in the January-March quarter.

The company reported a net profit of Rs 157 crore for the March quarter, representing an approximate 8 percent decrease sequentially from Rs 170 crore in the previous quarter. This decline in profitability was primarily attributed to subdued revenue growth and reduced other income due to a one-time deferred tax asset write-back.

Revenue growth also remained sluggish, registering a modest increase of less than 1 percent to Rs 1,301 crore in Q4FY24 compared to Rs 1,289.5 crore in Q3FY24. JM Financial noted that the subdued revenue growth was largely due to the project ramp-down by Tata Technologies’ major services client, Vinfast. Additionally, the management indicated that there would be some continued residual draw-down in the Vinfast account in Q1FY25.

Operational performance, however, remained relatively stable quarter-on-quarter, with the EBITDA margin standing at 18.4 percent in Q4.

Looking ahead, JM Financial revised its constant currency revenue growth estimates for Tata Technologies’ services segment to 11 percent-15 percent for FY25-26. The brokerage explained that the reduction in growth estimates for FY25 was influenced by the expected residual decline in Vinfast’s business in Q1, coupled with a slightly weaker performance than initially anticipated. JM Financial also adjusted its margin assumptions for FY25/26 downward by 60 basis points each to reflect a more subdued outlook provided by the management.

Despite the challenges, JM Financial remains optimistic about Tata Technologies’ growth prospects, citing a more diversified portfolio compared to previous years. The brokerage believes that despite the weakness in the Vinfast account, the company’s contracts with BMW, aerospace clients, and educational institutions will help sustain its underlying momentum.
