Sunil Hitech Engineers: Annual Results 2009 - 2010
For the year ended on 31st March 2010, Sunil Hi Tech achieved the Turnover of Rs 728.43 crore (standalone), thereby registering an Increase of 21.64% over Rs 598.81 crore in the previous fiscal year.

As investments in the power sector is gathering pace, there is dearth of companies who can provide engineering services required to build the power plants. Sunil Hitech, which is in the fabrication, erection and commissioning work, has been a key beneficiary of this demand. No wonder, the company currently has an order book of Rs 2,062 crore, which is 3.5 times its 2008-09 revenues and provide visibility for the next two years.
Sunil Hitech’s stock is currently trading at a price of 207 with PE multiple of 10 times which is attractive for a company, which is operating in a growing industry and is expected to report strong growth in earnings over the next two years. Historically, the company’s stock has been trading in the range of 10-22 multiples, hence company stock price is trading at lower side as compared to its current PE.
The gains from an investment in this stock could come from growth in earnings as well as a possible rerating. We believe stock downside is limited and it can appreciate by another 15-25 percent in near term.
