Valuation & recommendation  

Macrotech Developers is among the largest real estate developers in India by residential sales value for the financial years of 2014 to 2020. India’s residential sector, which has seen a slowdown for years now, was further disrupted by the pandemic. However, in recent months, home sales have seen a comeback in large cities, particularly in Mumbai Metropolitan Region, which is Macrotech’s core area of operations. They have 54 ongoing projects across London, Mumbai, and Pune. Moody's Investors Service had changed the outlook on Macrotech's ratings to stable from negative in November, citing better liquidity after the firm refinanced a construction loan and improved operating performance. The company plans to leverage its leadership position to act as a partner of choice for landowners and grow using a joint development, pursue a value-accretive land acquisition strategy, provide essential after-sales services as well as develop large-scale industrial parks. The listed peers are Brigade Enterprises Ltd, DLF Limited, Godrej Properties Ltd, Oberoi Realty Ltd, Prestige Estates Projects Ltd, Sobha Ltd, and Sunteck Realty Limited. Given that it is one of the leading players in the western Maharashtra region with the recent improvement in sales, its medium-term outlook looks positive. Looking at the above positives, we believe that the company will keep growing its business at a healthy rate, and hence, you can invest for long-term gain.
