V.P. Rajesh of Banyan Capital Advisors presented his in-depth investment thesis on Infinite Computer Solutions (India: INFINITE) at Best Ideas 2018.

The IT services industry has gone through a paradigm shift in the recent years. Infinite Computer Solutions has navigated the “new” environment successfully and has started growing materially faster than the industry. The founder of the company has a strong track record of taking shareholder-enhancing actions. Core investment thesis: (i) EBITDA margin is stabilizing; (ii) the products business is ramping up and can be a source of significant value in the coming years; and (iii) non-core real estate and net cash account for 30+% of recent market value. On financial and valuation parameters, Infinite Computer Solutions meets most of the metrics mentioned in Ben Graham’s checklist for a defensive investor.
