KPIT Cummins........cmp Rs 77.00....scrip of the year!


Very happy and prosperous new year to all of you.I wish that all earn tons of money in stock market and wish all the loss are wiped off next year....whoever is having it.......Best Of Luck.......because without her(Goddess Laxmi) I firmly believe nothing is possible......He ( God Vishnu)will guide us when to sell and when to that we can earn the maximum profit and do not sell early.....

I have done nothing here.Just copied paste what I got from while exploring Internet......I like the management, I like the statement of Chairman, I like the positive talk and hence I have posted it here.

KPIT Cummins net up at Rs 26 cr

KPIT Cummins Infosystems, a product engineering and IT consulting partner to manufacturing companies, has revised its profitability outlook for the full year. While the software company’s net profit has more than doubled to Rs 25.8 crore from Rs 10.7 crore a year ago, net sales have fallen significantly to Rs 109.8 crore against Rs 165.1 crore. During the first half, the software solutions provider registered a similar fall in sales, to Rs 218.63 crore (Rs 310.45 crore) while its net profit shot up to Rs 42.05 crore (Rs 23.27 crore). “We are revising our outlook for the full year’s profits to Rs 77-82 crore, from our earlier forecast that these would be flat. Last year, our net profit for the full year was Rs 65.81 crore (for the standalone company). We have revised our guidance since profits for the second quarter and first half have improved hugely,” said KPIT Cummins managing director and CEO Kishor Patil. The higher profitability is being attributed to greater productivity, moving more work offshore and fixed price contracts. Reflecting confidence in an economic revival, KPIT Cummins has begun to grant promotions within the company. These had been frozen for the past six months. Mr Patil added that they have also begun to hire from the freshers who had been made offers but had been put on hold in June. “This year, we expect to hire 200 freshers,” he said. “PSUs in India and the rest of the world offer opportunities. We are addressing the energy, utilities and defence sectors. We have begun engagements with energy and utilities in the US and with the defence in India,” Mr Patil explained.

deliver on a fixed price basis and also focused on Value delivery.
o In G eography terms, out of the total Q-o-Q revenue increase, US contributed 4%, Europe -4% and APAC 18.5 %. Our focus on the emerging markets is taking shape and will continue to contribute largely to our growth in the future.
o W e believe that the worst is behind us. W e actually faced a revenue decline only in Q1FY10 after seeing revenue growth till Q4 FY09 and we believe there would not be any further significant reduction in our USD denominated top line going ahead. There would be marginal ups and downs for the remainder of the year. W e have made a modest beginning by having QoQ growth in Q2FY10.
o Our customers are now coming back to the discussion tables to discuss projects and thus there is much more visibility now as compared to earlier two quarters. This is a sign that in the near future even the order flow will be normalized.
o W ith some new initiatives we have received good traction in two new customer
segments namely 􀂲 PSUs and Defense in our related areas of work.
o W e also believe we are well-equipped now to expand ourselves to offer services to a new industry sector 􀂲 Energy and Utilities.
o W e are focusing on bagging larger deals and maintaining key customer growth. W e are
also moving towards becoming a total solutions provider.
􀂾 Profitability:
o Profits marginally declined during the quarter on a QoQ basis mainly due to increase in
forex loss by almost 640%. Keeping the forex loss in Q2 equal to Q1, the net Profits
have actually expanded proportionately to the operating margins. N et Profit margins
contracted by 1% Q-o-Q and expanded by 3.7% Y-o-Y basis.
o W e have been able to not only maintain healthy operating margins but increase them
which is a result of productivity improvement and cost control measures continuously
being taken over the past few quarters, along with the shift in business from onsite to
offshore. SG &A costs have fallen by 8.9% (Q-o-Q) and 24.6% (Y-o-Y). The offshore
Jul - Sep 2009
Q2 FY10 Investor Update 3
utilization improved by 5%+ during the quarter to touch 72.8%, an increase of 1.5% YoY.
The Onsite utilization improved by 1.4% QoQ and 0.5% YoY.
o The following factors have contributed to the improvement in profits and profitability:
1. Our productivity improvement initiatives, namely more fixed price contracts,
Improved reuse of production assets from repository, reduced rework efforts,
increased zero defect deliveries to customers, increased usage of automation tools,increased customer satisfaction rating and better onsite offshore revenue mix. have been delivering improved outcomes.
2. We are continuously increasing the number of assets in our asset repository and also focusing on their re use. We currently are reusing about 15% of the total assets in our repository. We are also focusing on use of open source and freeware tools for project management, configuration management and software model development.
We have internally developed a Project H ealth Management System which helps in the ongoing monitoring of the projects and thus enabling required corrective
actions, if any, at the right time.
3. The reduction in SGA costs depicts the ongoing cost control and reduction initiatives like consolidation of facilities and utilization of all assets ( hardware, software, space ), capital expenditure only on a 􀂴must have􀂵 basis, strict control on support hiring and renegotiation of contracts with service as well as capital vendors for rate reduction. These measures will continue on an ongoing basis.
4. The forex loss during the quarter stood at Rs.131.57 Mn. as against Rs. 17.82 Mn. in Q1 FY10. In Q1 there was a big gain on the conversion of foreign currency liabilities since the net differential in the closing rate of Q1 and the previous quarter was Rs. 3/$ less. This gain on liability conversion offset the MTM losses and actual losses on maturity of the forward contracts. In Q2, the closing rate was marginally higher than Q1 and thus there was no gain on liability conversion but a marginal loss which added to the MTM and actual conversion losses. Thus there was a net increase of Rs.114 Mn. of forex losses in Q2FY10 as compared to Q1FY10.

􀂾 The Rupee has started appreciating against the dollar. If the same continues in the near future, it will have a big negative impact on the bottom line of exporters. We believe, we are much better placed to face the rupee appreciation, since there is a natural hedge in terms of our costs in foreign currencies and the balance exposure is sufficiently covered.
Having said this, the rupee appreciation will have some adverse effect on our bottom line numbers. Even after this expected appreciation, we are confident of maintaining the EBIDTA margins above 20% levels.

Q2 FY10 Investor Update 11
As stated in our last communication, in spite of the expected fall in revenues, our outlook on profitability remains strong. We are confident of not only maintaining, but also of exceeding the absolute profits after tax, of last financial year. The Rupee continues to be volatile and in our calculations we have considered the Rupee to be around 47 to a dollar for the remainder of the year. With this, we believe we should end the year with Net Profit after tax between Rs. 770 Million to Rs. 820 Million.
