InterGlobe Aviation shares rally 3% after doubling Q4 profit. Brokerages increase target price up to Rs 5,192

Shares of InterGlobe Aviation, which operates IndiGo Airlines, rose nearly 3% in Friday’s trade on BSE to its new 52-week high of Rs 4,520 after the company’s PAT more than doubled to Rs 1,895 crore in Q4.

Revenue from operations increased 26% year-on-year (YoY) to Rs 17,825 crore in the reporting quarter while the airline’s passenger ticket revenues grew 25% YoY to Rs 15,601 crore.

Here’s what analysts from various global and domestic brokerages say:


Nuvama stated that IndiGo’s growth is attributable to strong capacity addition, low ATF cost, and a rise in yields. RPKM rose as the demand stayed strong while the international segment surged 49% YoY. Nuvama further believes cost realization to continue and yields to remain healthy as a duopolistic structure bodes well for the company.Nuvama maintained a ‘buy’ view of the stock with a target price of Rs 5,192.Bank of AmericaThe global brokerage firm has lifted its estimates after Q4 beat.

Indigo continued to benefit from constrained capacity in the sector, with growing yields more than compensating for growing costs. While noting the case of spreads potentially declining YoY in FY2025 over a high base, Indigo’s undeterred focus is to create building blocks for changing the travel needs of a fast-growing India. The key to making such big strides in product offerings is a steady supply of aircraft until 2035, something that challengers lack and will increase lead for Indigo.
