Q4FY14 results were in-line with our expectations. Revenues were above our expectations on the strong growth seen in the India business (grew 16.5% YoY). Overseas revenues were mainly boosted by the currency which grew by 21.4%. EBIDTA margins were marginally lower during the quarter. Apple business has shown strong performance in Q4 as well as in FY14 (grew by 220% + YoY). Redington has strategically changed its overall product portfolio and has included tablets and ipads and also has included vendors like Lenovo and Samsung which has assisted. Company expects better momentum in FY15 and since it enjoys leadership position in the products it deals, we expect it to grow its business in infant markets like Africa and Turkey. Our initial target of Rs.107 has been achieved and now we are introducing FY16E numbers. At CMP, the stock is trading at a P/E of 9.7x/8.1x its FY15E / FY16E expected earnings and we recommend investors to buy the stock for a target price of Rs.130.
