CRISIL Research has come out with its report on Rainbow Papers . The research firm has maintained the fundamental grade of 3/5 to the company in its June 13, 2012 report.
Rainbow Papers Ltd’s (Rainbow’s) Q4FY12 revenues were higher and EBITDA was lower than CRISIL Research’s expectations due to higher contribution from low-margin trading business. PAT was slightly below expectations due to lower other income. EBITDA margin for the core business improved due to lower raw material costs. PAT margin declined q-o-q due to lower other income and higher taxes. Rainbow’s new capacity for value added paper products is now expected to be operational from Q3FY13 as the commissioning of the captive 20 MW power plant has been delayed by two quarters. According to the management, using power from the grid will not be economically feasible. With all clearances in place, the final phase of the power plant will be completed post monsoon. We expect Rainbow to benefit post the start of production of higher value products from the new capacity. We maintain our fundamental grade of 3/5.
Q4FY12 result analysis
• EBITDA margin declined by 279 bps y-o-y (up 82 bps q-o-q) to 16.4% due to higher proportion of revenue from trading, which has ~5-7% gross margins. EBITDA margin for the core business improved to 27.2% from 19.0% in Q3FY12 and 19.2% in Q4FY11 due to lower raw material costs and increase in proportion of sales of higher margin coated paper. Rainbow increased procurement of raw material from local markets instead of importing them as the rupee depreciation increased the cost of imported raw materials.
• PAT margin increased by 54 bps y-o-y (down 233 bps q-o-q) to 5.9%. The q-o-q decline was due to higher taxes paid in this quarter. Rainbow had availed MAT credit in the previous three quarters of FY12 and recognised the deferred tax liability in Q4FY12.
• EPS for Q4FY12 was Rs 1.3 compared to Rs 1.4 in Q3FY12 and Rs 0.6 in Q4FY11.
• Rainbow declared a dividend of Rs 0.4 per share for FY12.
