IRB Infrastructure Share Price Target 2024

For 2024, we expect IRB Infra’s share price to be in the range of Rs 67 – Rs 80, based on estimated forward P/E ratio of 10x-12x on FY24 projected EPS of Rs 6.7.

IRB Infra has a strong order book of over Rs 13,700 crore which provides revenue visibility for the next 2-3 years. In FY24, the company is expected to start recognizing revenues from major projects like the Vadodara-Kim Expressway, Telangana HAM project and Padma Bridge. Toll revenues are also likely to witness 18-20% growth as traffic recovers post-pandemic. Overall, revenues are estimated to grow 15-18% in FY24.

IRB Infrastructure Share Price Target 2025

For 2025, we estimate the share price target at Rs 77.5 – Rs 87.5 based on FY25 projected EPS of Rs 5.8 and P/E ratio of 13x-15x.

IRB Infra’s order book execution will drive revenue growth of 16-18% in FY25. The share of high-margin tolling revenues is expected to reach 45% by FY25. As major HAM projects become operational, benefits of operating leverage will expand EBITDA margins to 62-65%.

ROE is forecast to improve to 13-14% in FY25, while debt-to-equity ratio will decline below 1x based on higher internal accruals. The balance sheet strengthening will aid re-rating of the stock.

IRB Infrastructure Share Price Target 2026

For 2026, we estimate the target price to be Rs 85.75 – Rs 95.75 based on forward P/E multiple of 12x-14x on projected FY26 EPS of Rs 7.15.

IRB Infra’s order book diversification will enable 14-16% revenue growth in FY26. Toll revenues are estimated to cross 50% of total revenues as traffic ramps up on operational BOT assets. This will help sustain EBITDA margins above 63%.

ROE is expected to expand to 15-16% by FY26 on the back of lower leverage. The company’s strengthening execution track record across models like HAM, BOT and TOT will aid re-rating.

IRB Infrastructure Share Price Target 2027

For 2027, we forecast the target price to be in the range of Rs 100.37 – Rs 110.37 based on estimated forward P/E of 11x-13x on projected FY27 EPS of Rs 9.15.

In FY27, IRB Infra’s revenues are projected to grow at 12-14% driven by toll assets. Toll revenues are expected to make up 55% of total revenues. EBITDA margins will remain steady at 64-66% levels. ROE will likely expand to 17-18% by FY27, signaling optimal capital structure.

The company’s asset monetization plans via InVIT and strong cash flows generation will aid deleveraging and support valuation multiples.

IRB Infrastructure Share Price Target 2028

For 2028, we estimate the target price to be Rs 113.01 – Rs 123.01 based on forward P/E band of 10x-11x on projected FY28 EPS of Rs 11.3.

IRB Infra is forecast to deliver 10-12% revenue CAGR over FY22-28, led by toll revenue growth. Toll revenues could account for 60% of total revenues by FY28. This will help sustain industry-leading EBITDA margins above 65%.

ROCE expansion to 16-17% is likely by FY28 as capital structure turns optimal. The company’s execution expertise and balance sheet strength will aid in bidding for new projects.

IRB Infrastructure Share Price Target 2029

For 2029, we forecast the target price to be Rs 127.18 – Rs 137.18 based on estimated P/E ratio of 9x-10x on projected FY29 EPS of Rs 14.1.

In FY29, IRB Infra’s revenue growth is estimated at 8-10% driven by 12% increase in toll collections. EBITDA margins are expected to remain above 63% with increasing high-margin toll revenues.

By FY29, ROE will likely touch 19-20% indicating optimal capital structure. The company’s competitive strengths in project execution will cement its leadership in private roads space.

IRB Infrastructure Share Price Target 2030

For 2030, we estimate the target price to be Rs 143.04 – Rs 170.04 based on forward P/E multiple of 8x-10x on projected FY30 EPS of Rs 17.9.

Over FY24-30, IRB Infra is projected to deliver a revenue CAGR of 6-8%, led by 10% CAGR in toll revenues. Gradual margin expansion to 65-67% is likely by FY30.

The company’s leadership in BOT projects, strong execution track record across 20 states and healthy balance sheet will support premium valuation multiples.

Catalysts for Growth or Potential Challenges

IRB Infra possesses multiple drivers that can catalyze growth and share price upside:

  • Strong project pipeline and bid capacity
  • Reduction in debt supporting profitability
  • Favorable regulatory framework for road builders
  • Asset monetization through InVIT platform
  • Gradual rise in toll revenues with traffic resurgence

However, key challenges remain:

  • Execution risks in large HAM projects
  • Delays in appointed dates and regulatory clearances
  • Rising interest rates inflating finance costs
  • Input cost inflation affecting profit margins
  • Potential Covid flare-ups impacting mobility

Managing operational risks related to project delivery on time and cost front will be crucial to realize IRB Infra’s attractive growth potential.

Risk Assessment of IRB Infrastructure Share

Comprehensive Risk Analysis

  • Project execution risk: Delays in project completion can increase costs and impact profitability. Also leads to penalties and loss of reputation.
  • Input cost inflation: Sharp rise in raw material prices like steel and bitumen poses risk of cost overruns.
  • Traffic volume risk: Lower than estimated traffic growth on toll roads will affect revenues. COVID-19 flare-up is an example.
  • Liquidity risk: High debt obligations increase liquidity pressures and IRB Infra’s cost of capital.
  • Regulatory risk: Changes in government policies on road projects can impact order flows and dispute resolution.
  • Interest rate risk: Rising interest rate scenario will escalate IRB Infra’s finance costs.

Mitigation Strategies

  • Strong in-house execution capabilities to deliver projects on schedule
  • Diversified order book across geographies limits concentration risk
  • Focus on operational excellence to maximize toll revenues
  • Gradually reducing debt levels through internal cash flows
  • Bid for HAM projects with firm scope and low traffic risks
  • Building equity investor base to ensure funding access when required

Prudent mitigation strategies by IRB Infra’s management will help realize upside potential while minimizing risks.


IRB Infrastructure has a strong track record of cash flow generation and efficient operations. However, the company faces challenges with high debt levels and stagnant revenue growth.

The future share price will depend on the company’s ability to address these issues and capitalize on growth opportunities. Investors should carefully consider the risks and potential rewards before investing in IRB Infrastructure.
