CRISIL Research has come out with its report on Dhanuka Agritech . The research firm has maintained the fundamental grade of 4/5 to the company in its February 16, 2012 report.
Dhanuka Agritech Ltd’s (Dhanuka’s) Q3FY12 results were below CRISIL Research’s expectations as both revenue and profitability declined compared to Q3FY11 on account of a lean rabi season. Deficient rains in the key pesticides consuming states, such as Andhra Pradesh, Maharashtra and Karnataka, resulted in lower farm acreages and yields leading to lower demand for pesticides. Also, drop in prices of key crops, such as cotton, dented farmers’ sentiments, further adversely impacting pesticides offtake. However, on account of our positive stance on the industry and Dhanuka’s established position, we maintain fundamental grade of 4/5.
Q3FY12 result analysis
• EBITDA margin declined by 531 bps y-o-y to 11.5% primarily on account of increased raw material costs. As a percentage of sales, raw material costs increased by 754 bps to 52.6% y-o-y as the company was unable to pass through the raw material price increases to farmers.
• The company reported PAT of Rs 78 mn against Rs 124 mn in Q3FY11. Accordingly, EPS was Rs 1.6, lower by 37% y-o-y.
• 9MFY12 revenues grew by 9.3% over 9MFY11 to Rs 3,995 mn, which is modest in comparison to growth rates registered by Dhanuka in the previous years. The company reported an EPS of Rs 7.8 compared to Rs 7.5 in 9MFY11.
Earnings estimates – revised downwards
