Excerpts from AR 2012-13

Our acquisition of Cignex, two years ago was in response to the Open Source opportunity. Cignex is in âOpen Sourceâ. Cignex revenue grew from Rs 99 crores to Rs 193 crores in the 2 years after our acquisition Your company is relying upon both organic and inorganic growth. We are constantly looking for M&A targets in our business, with financial prudence. I am confident that our growth will exceed 30% in FY 2013-14 thanks to organic growth, M&As and the weakening rupee.

Surviving from 25 years in the industry

Company is in reviving phase after a few years of challenges.

High shareholding by promoters â 72.75%

Clean balance sheet â 100cr of cash and cash equivalents (excluding 40 Cr debt) on MCP of 320 cr.

Continuously paying dividend with 2% yield and good payout ratio of 25%.


Last 5 years has been challenging and didnât show the growth

61% of revenue from USA.

Currency fluctuations

Talent retention

Growth is majorly from CIGNEX

Investment theme:

Of late there is a re-rating in IT/ITES sector due to rupee depreciation, increasing opportunities due to US recovery and positive outlook for next 2-3 years. This has been extended to even small cap companies like R-systems, etc. Datamatics is one company which is in the same league and trading at forward PE of 6. This seems to be a good Opportunistic bet at the CMP of around 50. Any improvement in fundamentals and consistent growth may re-rate the company to 7-8 PE help to provide good return in the medium term of 1-2 years.

Request senior valuepickrs opinion.

Discl: No positions.

Best result in 10 years of being listed clearly speaks of something.

Other staffing firms which got listed recently Quess Corp n Team Lease trading at very high PE of above 60.
Will this trigger value Unlocking in Datamatics Global which is trading very cheap at PE of around 8 has to be seen

Datamatics is not purely staffing company… is it?

Datamatics is not a staffing firm.

Datamatics revenue have not shown any growth. Also have a look at margins. Staffing companies work at low margins. Do you know of any growth triggers of this company?


Hai can anybody throw some light on Hinduja global services is it same like datamamtics

Datamatics to acquire controlling stake of 71.1% in app development firm TechJini for $6 million. This step will strengthen its mobility offerings with TechJini’s range of smart technology solutions.

Techjini is a 12 year old firm based in Bengaluru and New Jersey having 35 clients from domains such as media, engineering and manufacturing. For the financial year 2016-17, TechJini registered a consolidated turnover of Rs 35.02 crore, the filing shows.

Personal Take: With the growth in demand for device centric businesses like IoT, mobility etc., this step could be a great value add to Datamatics, which is a global provider of consulting, information technology, data management and business process management services.

Request the opinion of the other Valuepickr’s

My personal take: Their valuation looks cheap but as a company they could not grow much in their period of industry growth. Both of their key business line Application Lifecycle (ADM) and Business Process Management (BPO) are prime candidates for disruptions due to automation and AI technologies in coming quarters. The only way companies like these will be able to protect and grow top-line will be through venturing into new area (e.g. mobility), and being able to offset revenue falls in order business through new capabilities. The acquisition may unlock some opportunistic upside in short-term but I would wait and watch at least two quarters, to consider a value pick.

Look forward to opinion of other Valuepickrs.

Disclosure: No positions.
