Q3 Results & forecast :
The debit pile of this company is huge and Management is well aware of this.  Efforts to bring down the debt by QIP preferential offers are in the offing.  25% vs. our estimate of 26.5% (down 506bps YoY) led to EBITDA of Rs 1.2bn and PAT of Rs 0.8bn, ~10% below estimates.  The  lower  margins  were  attributable  to majority  of  revenues  being  recognized  from   mid- income projects such as Tranquility (Rs 1.5bn) and Bella Vista (Rs 1.1bn) during the quarter. Other expenses increased 68% QoQ to Rs 251mn  on  account of re- classification of agent commissions  underoverheads vs. project-level expenses (material expenses).

Technical view : 
Although PEPL continues to have a strong launch pipeline, PEPL continues  to invest in augmenting its land bank through a mix of JDAs and outright acquisitions and is incurring annual capex of Rs 5-6bn on annuity assets. Hence, the key monitorable in our view is the company’s ability to keep debt levels in check in FY14-15E (PEPL’s consolidated net debt increased by Rs 4.0bn in 1HFY14 to Rs 21.9bn). Maintain Sell around Rs.165 stop loss of 170 with TP of Rs 150 /share 

Traders Delight :
The scrip provides enough trading opportunities for the risky traders.  Any fall below Rs.140 should be considered as an opportunity to buy and hold the stock for a target price of Rs.170
