IIFL Securities in its report increased the target price for Bharti Infratel to Rs 274 from Rs 233 earlier and upgraded the stock from ADD to BUY rating.
The rating firm added,'' Closure of the Indus-Infratel merger has been delayed on account of renegotiation of the merger terms, given the relatively weaker financial performance of the Indus vs Infratel in the past 2 years and Indus' higher exposure to Vodafone. We think a merger is imminent, as: 1) the merger would result in better liquidity for both the negotiating parties; and 2) considering the value unlocking by creating an integrated single tower with a clean structure."
