According to the brokerage firm Motilal Oswal Financial Services, IRB Infrastructure Developers is uniquely positioned to expand its asset base and drive sustainable growth.

Motilal Oswal observed that IRB’s access to two InvIT platforms (IRB InvIT Fund and IRBIT) has supported capital unlocking in the past through asset monetisation and the company is expected to benefit from the same in the future as well.

“With a substantial NHAI pipeline of nearly 2 trillion BoT ((build, operate and transfer)) and 46 ToT (toll-operate-transfer) projects, the collaboration between a domestic player (IRB), a financial investor (GIC), and a strategic investor (Cintra) will enhance project planning and selection. This synergy positions IRB uniquely to expand its already largest asset base in the sector,” said Motilal Oswal.

“The company will benefit from the growing EPC (engineering, procurement and construction) and O&M (operation and maintenance) order book, which stood at 362 billion as of December 2023. With a robust tender pipeline of projects to be awarded by NHAI and a healthy order book, we expect IRB to register a nearly 12 per cent revenue CAGR over FY24-26E with sustained margins,” Motilal Oswal pointed out.

The brokerage firm has a ‘neutral’ rating on the stock with a SoTP-based target price of 60.
