R K Global is bullish on Sesa Goa and has recommended buy rating on the stock with a target price of Rs 212, in its April 26, 2012 research report.

"Sesa Goa consolidated revenue dip by ~23% Y-o-Y but still better than our expected degrowth of ~45%Y-o-Y on the back of mining ban in Karnataka impacted iron ore production. EBITDA declined by ~53% Y-o-Y more than our expectation (our estimate 50% fall). Revenue growth declined, better than our estimate: During the quarter, revenue of the company degrew by 23% Y-o-Y to Rs 27943mn in Q4FY’12 (our estimate Rs 19730mn) compared to Rs 36236mn in Q4FY’12 on the back of lower volume growth due to ban in Karnataka mining and mining lease expiration in Orissa."

"During the Q, production of saleable iron ore fell by 11%Y-o-Y to 4.9mn ton compared to 5.5mn ton of corresponding quarter of previous year where full sales contribution came from Goa. However, total saleable iron ore production declined by 4%Y-o-Y to 4.9mn ton in Q4FY12 compared to 5.1mn ton in Q4FY11. Total sales declined by 21%Y-o-Y to 5.2mn ton in Q4FY12 compared to 6.6mn ton in Q4FY11. Out of total sales, volume sales declined by 17%Y-o-Y to 4.9mn ton from Goa, 60%Y-o-Y fell at 0.2mn ton from Karnataka."

"Total expenditure of the company grew by 19%Y-o-Y as a percentage of sales to Rs 17974mn (our estimate Rs 9058mn) in Q4FY’12 compared to Rs 15052mn in Q4FY’11 out of which raw material cost, O&M expenses, employee cost and S&D cost increased by 9%, ~25%, ~32 and 61% respectively during the Q4.. Hence EBITDA declined by 52%Y-o-Y to Rs 9969mn (our estimate Rs 10671mn) in Q4FY12 compared to Rs 21183mn in Q4FY’11. PAT also fell more than expected by ~52% Y-o-Y to Rs 6963mn (our expectation Rs 8648mn) compared to Rs 14617mn in Q4FY11."

"EBITDAM fell by 3897bps to 35.6% (our estimate 54%) in Q4FY’12 compared to 58.4% in Q4FY’11. PBDTM and PBTM fell by 3344bps and 3740bps to 39.7% and 38.6% respectively on the back of higher total cost. PATM too declined to 24.9% (our estimate 42.9%) in Q4FY’12 compared to 40.3% in Q4FY’11. We value the company based on SOTP valuing based on conservative approach) its core operations on a FY13 EV/EBITDA multiple of 3x (earlier 4x) at Rs 127 and b) Cairn Investment based on market cap (discounted at 25%) at Rs 113. At our revised valuation our target price is maintained at Rs 212/share (adjusted Debt), the stock offers a potential upside of around ~15% from the current level; we recommend ‘Buy’ rating on the stock," says R K Global research report.
