Growth in earnings expected in CY15
Despite inclusion of 13 million shares which would dilute earnings, we expect company to post decent growth of 33% in CY15 as profit after taxation to clock in at Rs 533 million (EPS:
Rs 5.32) in CY15 against Rs 402 million (EPS: Rs 4.01) anticipated in CY14 which would be flat earnings. We expect corporate demand to improve from banks and telecom sector as this industry would go for further automation.
As System Limited business model likely to promising, we estimate Dec’ 15 target price of Rs 42/share providing upside potential of 68% and 20% from price of Rs 25/share and Rs 35/share respectively. We have applied PE multiple of 7.8x to calculate target price against
KSE multiple of 8.4x
