Key Highlights:
EPS increased from Rs1.79 in FY2006 to Rs2.36 in FY2009.
OPM reamined almost flat at 16% till FY2008 but abrupt decline is seen in FY2009 to 11.7%. Higher operating expenses could be the reason for the sudden dip.
NPM too remained flat at 6% till FY2008 but it declined to 3% in FY2009. Higher interest outgo coupled by higher operating cost is the reason for decline.
Interest  cover remained above 5 till FY2008 but increase in interest outgo made the cover slide to 3.

Total Income declined for the quarter by 10.3%.
Operating Income increased by 156.12% due to decrease in operating expenses.
Net Profit up by only 16.21% due to 14 fold jump in interest outgo.

VALUATION AND OUTLOOK:
The outlook of the company remains very bright as it has successfully restructured itself into as education company. As the company has bagged project from various state govt and it is also foraying into different stream of education that is job oriented will see its profitability multiplying.
We expect FY2010E EPS to Rs6 per share. So at cmpRs62 the stock is trading at 10.3x to FY2010E earning. We value the company at 17x , this gives the fair price of Rs102.

CONCLUSION:
We feel the company is in right position to exploit the growing education industry in India. Investor with 6-8 month target could start accumulating stock at current level.
