Deal-well-done; shareholders to get rich dividends; maintain Buy We believe the significant-premium on the deal valuation is a classic example of what opportunity any cloud based IP-business can achieve given the potential acceleration theme and further reinforce our positive view in the space. We expect the stock to trade about 20% discount (towards tax & time value) to cash-per-share at about Rs680 and would inch higher as more clarity emerges on distribution route and time-lines...
Key highlight of the quarter was go live of IBM MetLife deal. The IBM MetLife deal is currently live for smaller markets. However, eventual progression will be to go live at national and then global level. We believe this will drive its cloud subscription revenues. Also, we believe this will lead to higher larger deals with other Tier-I insurers. Further, Majesco has also entered into a partnership with Capgemini, PwC, Deloitte, Microsoft Azure, which is expected to drive cloud deals. In addition, the company has seen healthy growth in order book that is up 24% YoY in rupee terms (of which 55% is...
Maintain BUY. Majesco posted better than expected revenue and margin performance in 4QFY20. Revenue growth was led by +5.3/+25.0% QoQ/YoY growth in Products revenue (Cloud subscription + Licence + AMC), while Services revenue (Cloud implementation + On-prem + Professional Services) was down 0.5/9.3% QoQ/YoY. Majesco has now positioned itself as a pure-play Products company and is focussing on driving growth through SI partnerships. The first phase of the Metlife project went live and will act as a reference point for future deals. Impact of COVID-19 was felt on deal signings, some of the deals in pipeline got deferred by 1-2 quarters. EBIT margin expansion was healthy, supported by higher-margin cloud subscription revenue. FY21/22E USD revenue est. remains unchanged, and TP of Rs 375 implies EV/rev multiple of 1.0x on FY22E rev.
The spread of Covid-19 has led to lockdowns in many countries globally and could have adverse economic implications. In addition, the recent fall in crude prices could also have an adverse impact of fiscal health of oil producing countries. As a result, IT companies, which have considerable exposure to verticals such as oil, energy & utilities; banking & capital markets; manufacturing and travel & transport could see an adverse impact from the ongoing crisis. Companies like Wipro, Infosys in large cap and MindTree, NIIT Tech, Sonata software, Cyient, Accelya Solutions among...
Cloud revenue witnessed growth after two quarters of slowdown. Cloud was supported by nine go-lives, ramp-up of cloud deals and higher implementation revenue from existing clients. Partnership with Capgemini, IBM and Microsoft (Azure) is promising, but not yielding results in terms of large deal wins. Growth in cloud subscription and recurring revenue will lead to margin expansion. We expect revenue CAGR of 10% over FY19-22E with cloud CAGR of 21%. We maintain positive stance on Majesco based on (1) Rising adoption of third-party software by insurers, (2) Solid partnerships, (3) Continued deal wins, and (4) Cloud traction. Risk includes prolonged sales cycle and deterioration in US/Europe macros. We maintain BUY on Majesco based strong recovery in revenue and margin in 3QFY20. Revenue growth was led by cloud traction, nine go-lives and deal ramp-up. EBIT margin expansion was healthy, supported by higher margin cloud subscription revenue. The order backlog is robust and cloud deal wins remains healthy. We increase FY21/22E USD revenue est. by 1.4/1.2% to factor in cloud recovery. Our TP of Rs 663 implies EV/rev multiple of 2.0x on Dec FY21 revenue.
Cloud revenue growth has witnessed slowdown in the last two quarters due to completion of a large project. The back-fill will happen gradually with new deal wins, go-lives and growth in subscription revenue. Partnership with Capgemini, IBM and Microsoft (Azure) looks promising but large deal wins are still not coming. We expect revenue CAGR of 10% over FY19-22E (cloud CAGR of 16%). We maintain our positive stance on Majesco based on (1) Rising adoption of third-party software by insurers, (2) Solid partnerships, (3) Continued deal wins, and (4) Cloud traction. The risk to our thesis includes slowdown in cloud deal wins, prolonged sales cycle and deterioration in US/Europe macros. We maintain BUY on Majesco despite poor 2QFY20. Revenue fall was led by cloud (completion of large implementation) but the fall in EBIT margin was lower than expected. The order backlog remains robust and cloud deal wins are healthy. We cut FY20/21E USD revenue est. by 4.1/5.4% to factor in 2Q miss. Our TP of Rs 677 implies EV/rev multiple of 2.0x on Sep FY21 rev.
The current quarter was marred by multiple headwinds in terms of Brexit related issues in Europe, which led to a decline of 30.7% in revenues from Europe. Further, cloud implementation took a hit due to the IBM-Met life deal, which is about to go live in the coming quarters. The same is reflected in decline in top five clients, which dipped 26.4% QoQ. The silver lining was cloud subscription revenues which increased 19.3% QoQ and the order book remains healthy which grew 1.7% QoQ (up 33.1% YoY). We expect cloud subscription revenues to further improve post the go live of IBMMetLife deal. Majesco has also entered into a partnership with Capgemini,...
Cloud revenue registered 54% YoY growth in FY19, growth was led by MetLife, new deal wins and build-up of cloud subscription revenue. The large MetLife implementation project is complete and is impacting cloud revenue. Back-filling of MetLife revenue will be gradual. New deal wins, extension of the MetLife project to other geographies and increase in minimum subscription revenue will drive growth in cloud. The partnership with Capgemini for L&A and Group life is promising and can bring large deals on the table. We expect USD revenue CAGR of 13% over FY19-22E (cloud CAGR of 21%). We maintain our positive stance on Majesco based on (1) Rising adoption of third-party software by insurers, (2) IBM & Capgemini partnership and (3) Continued deal wins. Risk to our thesis includes a slowdown in deal wins, prolonged sales cycle and deterioration in US/Europe macros. We maintain BUY on Majesco following slight miss on revenue & margins in 1QFY20. Revenue grew despite a steep fall in the cloud revenue and margin expansion (lower than est.) was healthy. The order backlog is robust and cloud deal wins are stable. We await a large deal win from the IBM/Capgemini channel. Our TP of Rs 685 implies EV/rev multiple of 2.0x on June-FY21 rev.
MetLife Go-Live Drags Revenue; Long Term Op-Lev Potential Majesco Limited (MJCO) reported a poor 1QFY20 performance on revenue, which grew 1.2% QoQ in USD terms to US$37.2mn.

The company has witnessed decline of 4.9% and 20.6% QoQ in cloud subscription and cloud implementation mainly due to completion of IBMMetLife project. The IBM-MetLife deal is expected to go live probably in the middle of Q2FY20E. Once it gets live, the company will receive minimum subscription revenues that will replace some portion of decline in could revenues. In addition, the company is also winning new logos in the cloud that will help boost cloud revenues. Majesco has also entered into a partnership with Capgemini to bring in insurance innovation and business transformation to the life & annuity (L&A;) business and tap the opportunity...
Huge shift has happened from on-premise to cloud model for the past two years. Cloud is now ~40% of revenue and de-growth in legacy (~20% of rev) has started to stabilize. The MetLife cloud platform is in its last stages of implementation and will fetch minimum subscription revenue post go-live. Scaling of subscription revenue is the key for margin expansion. The partnership with Capgemini for L&A and Group life is a very positive development and can bring large deals on the table. We expect USD revenue CAGR of 17% over FY19-21E will be driven by cloud CAGR of 36% and stable legacy. We maintain our positive stance on Majesco based on (1) Rising adoption of third-party software by insurers, (2) IBM & Capgemini partnership, (3) Improving deal wins, and (4) ramp-up in cloud revenues.
