Finance

BQ Prime’s special research section collates quality and in-depth equity and economy research reports from across India’s top brokerages, asset managers and research agencies. These reports offer BQ Prime’s subscribers an opportunity to expand their understanding of companies, sectors and the economy.

RailTel Corporation of India Ltd.’s Q1 FY23 Ebitda was up 12% YoY, but down 30% QoQ, to Rs 670 million. It was impacted by lower billing in telecom services, higher cost of equipment due to chip-set issues and lower-margin defence project execution.

RailTel believes telecom revenue should sequentially improve and project revenue should see a good jump with acceleration in execution, particularly on the video surveillance system project for railways.

RailTel has guided for 20% growth in both revenue and Ebitda for FY23. Project revenue is guided at Rs 8 billion-9 billion for FY23 with Ebit margin of 8-8.5% versus Rs 1 billion and 3.9% in Q1 FY23.

Telecom services margin should benefit from lower equipment prices on better chip-set availability. Rail display network and content on demand projects should partly add to Ebitda in H2 FY23 while towers and Edge-DC will start contributing from H2 FY24.
