Mphasis commentary: Jyoti Roy - DVP- Equity Strategist, Angel Broking

"Mphasis reported a 6.1% quarter-on-quarter (q-o-q) growth in revenues to $363 million which was ahead of expectations. In rupee terms, revenue grew by 6.6% q-o-q to 2,690.8 crore while gross profits declined by 2.6% q-o-q to 716.6 crore due to increase in manpower costs. Operating profit for the quarter was up by 5.3% q-o-q due to tight control in SG&A expenses. Net profit was up by 7.2% q-o-q to 339.7 crore. Overall the Q1FY22 numbers were above street estimates led by solid beat on topline growth as a 9.8% q-o-q constant currency growth in the direct business more than offset a 18.1% q-o-q decline in DXC business. The company reported record direct TCV wins at USD 505mn for the quarter of which 85% came from new-gen technologies. Post the Q1FY22 results concerns over degrowth in the DXC business have been addressed as the direct channel has more than offset loss from the DXC channel over the past few quarters. Moreover, the contribution from the DXC business has now come down to 9% of overall revenues as compared to over 25% of revenues a few years back. We continue to maintain our positive stance on Mphasis post the Q1FY22 results."

Zomato analysis: Jyoti Roy - DVP- Equity Strategist, Angel Broking

"The Zomato IPO received great response from investors and was subscribed ~ 38 times which translated to a blockbuster listing for the stock. The stock listed at more than a 50% premium to the issue price of Rs. 76 and continued to move up from there given strong demand. We had given a subscribe rating to the IPO. Given strong delivery network, high barriers to entry, expected turnaround and significant growth opportunities in tier-II and tier-III cities we continue to remain positive on the stock from a long term perspective. Post the stellar listing, we recommend that short-term investors that were looking for listing gains can exit the stock while long-term investors can book partial profits."
