Investment Rationale
The key question for MCX is its ability to recover volumes post the impact of higher margin trading norm. Basis H1FY22 ADTV (14% / 17% lower than FY20 / FY21), the brokerage has cut FY22E ADTV from Rs358bn to Rs312bn. However, the ADTV recovery is not bound to be linear. As such, it has cut FY23E ADTV by only 5% to Rs390bn. Considering the reported ADTVs of ~Rs324bn in FY20, Rs312bn in FY21, Rs433bn in Aug’20 and Rs368bn in Feb’21, ADTV of Rs390bn is achievable by FY23E, which should translate to FY23E EPS of Rs61.4 implying 26x FY23E P/E at CMP.
